oh my god! mom gave me this pic about 20 years ago when i first met her as well as a bunch of others i have around here somewhere. i had no idea the photo was published! thanks for that link ill email it to the rest of my family. i only got to spend very little time with gramps as i had not met him till later in life, mom says he was always a very active rider & always involved in cycling events & races! the man was a tireless adventurer his whole life. related to a lot of other historical adventurers, of which i my may share later.as not to bore the masses to much.his name was datus ensign perry, decendant of oliver hazzard perry & mathew perry. he was also a famous sasquatch researcher all his life. skamania county wa.ect.
