Day #58 – Thompson, UT to Green River, UT – 56 miles / 90 km

We exchanged a couple of text messages with the boys early afternoon. They were taking a break in Green River and mentioned that from that point the next town will be in 105 miles (167 km).

Then Peter wrote: “I just watched a replay of Marti Malloy winning the Bronze medal this morning.”

They rode 20 more miles (36 km) until they settled down for the night, but the title still shows Green River, as that is still the closest town to their current location.

In the evening we were only able to talk for a few minutes, because the phone call kept being dropped. Janos talked about the strong storm they were experiencing as we spoke. Heavy rain, a lightning in every 10-15 seconds, and wind so strong, they had to tie out the tent to the bicycles. A flash flood warning was issued for the area, expiring late night.

USGS reported a M3.7 earthquake at around 4:30 am, about 40 miles (64 km) from the brothers. They could feel it, but that is all. Maybe one of the safest place during an earthquake is under a tent… On the map below, the star shows the epicenter of the quake, and the red arrow shows the boys’ location.

States: 11   Total: 2941 miles / 4733 km

  1. Here the Kabai brothers are in the middle of Utah and have just watched Marti Malloy win the Bronze Medal in Olympic Judo on their internet phone…boy they don’t miss a beat in their journey across America bringing visibility to the mission and work of the Blind Judo Foundation. They continue to push on despite weather conditions….Be well and stay safe. Ron Peck, Blind Judo Foundation
