"The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is an annual long-distance sled dog race run in early March from Anchorage to Nome, entirely within the US state of Alaska. Mushers and a team of 14 dogs, of which at least 5 must be on the towline at the finish line, cover the distance in 8–15 days or more."*
What isn't well known is that the Japanese home islands includes a tribe of people on the northernmost island of Hokkaido, the Houmg, that are the functional equivalent of the American indian, the original inhabitants who have lived there for thousands of years, and they use sleds with dogs as well and they hold annual races similar to the Iditarod. Our R&D people are working with this tribe to see how hard it would be to put wheels on the sleds and use these "vehicles" to move supplies. The work is ongoing.
