Day #69 – US-50, NV to Fallon, NV – 72 miles / 116 km

The brothers had a good day. The terrain was comfortably flat, and the headwind wasn’t very strong. The temperature was still high though, just above 100 °F (38 °C), and the wind was hot too.

In the evening Peter dropped a few miles behind, while Janos and Ryan arrived to Fallon. As they were standing around waiting, someone asked Janos: Is that your brother one mile from here? – He said yes. The man offered that they spend the night in his home. He has an extra room where they could put down their sleeping bags. Charging their phones is really important as well. Very soon Peter arrived too.

We received a few pictures from Janos. The first two were taken two days ago, the evening when the boys met the curious bull. On the second picture see Ryan (24). The next two pictures he took yesterday.

States: 13   Total: 3523 miles / 5670 km

PS: Just before publishing the post we received a picture from Peter, the last one listed below. This is called Sand Mountain, shown even on US road atlases, as a tourist curiosity. Peter and Janos has been twice here, while on family trips. They still remember the huge “pile” of clear sand, the hour-long climb to get to the top of it, and the burning hot sand that filled our shoes.

  1. Traveling with someone besides Peter and Janos can add additional interface time and probably made the trip seem faster than it was. Again, the generosity of another American. Ron Peck, Blind Judo Foundation
