Day #33 – Evansville, IN to Fairfield, IL – 66 miles / 106 km

Fooled by the GPS, the brothers arrived to a bridge across the Wabash River – and found that the bridge has been closed for a month. They had to choose between an almost 30-mile detour, and crossing the river riding on the highway. Below you can see a picture of the Welcome to Illinois sign, taken while riding on Interstate 64.

We also received pictures that were taken the previous day, when entering Indiana, and a fireworks photomontage from Peter.

States: 7   Total: 1476 miles / 2375 km

  1. Congratulation for the progress you are making as indicated by the higher miles / day. Your having to modify your route because of a bridge closing is another example of “thinking on your feet” which happens in life. Keep up the great job…we really appreciate all you are doing for blind and visually impaired children, young adults and our military men and women so they can afford being introduced to the sport of Judo.
