We made the drive to Topeka to check out the Evel Knievel Museum. Having grown up during the years when Evel Knievel was "performing", it was fun to see all of the exhibits. We all learned so much about the man behind the incredible motorcycle jumps, got to see some of his bikes and leathers and even did a jump ourselves!
Fun fact: With a total of 433 broken bones during his lifetime, Evel Knievel still holds the world record for surviving the most broken bones!
