Day 5 In The Books. 42 States, 42 Marathon Swims To Go

The Swim Brothers Joe Zemaitis and John Zemaitis walked in, swam across, and walked out in another double state day. After they finished a 10 km swim in the state of Idaho’s Lake Coeur d’Alene, they took off in their RV and drove to the state of Montana where they swam 10.43 km in Flathead Lake.

Now they are driving to the state of Wyoming as they continue their Ultimate Swim-a-Thon.
