The writer Jack London had to go from Skagway to a remote camp in a sled pulled by 5 husky dogs. For 24 hours the dogs pulled the sled at full speed.
Then 2 dogs ran off with a pack of wolves, and the sled was slowed down proportionally. Jack reached camp 48 hours later than he planned. "If those
2 huskies had held on for 50 more miles, I would have been only half as late."  How far was the camp from Skagway and how long did it take Jack to get there?
