    Return to Snake River: A new generation prepares to complete Evel Knievel's greatest feat

    TL;DR: a guy is gonna do the Evel Knievel Snake River Canyon jump again. Bob Truax, the father of private rocketry in the 70s, built the original bike, and his son Scott has walked in his dad's footsteps to build an exact replica of the Skycycle X-2 - but with a ballistic parachute system so it should make it across the canyon this time.

    I'm STOKED. This is gonna be AMAZEBALLS.

  7. You got the brutal without my judgement so I reckon you're alright at making general life choices, I'd say you'd be just fine without me. But I'm happy to help whenever I can :p

    Also, how good is the name "Evel Spirit". I am so excited about this event. I'm thinking about taking the day off work.
