g+ Pony Express


 -  Aug 1, 2011  -  Public
I'm always fascinated by the speed of information and keep coming back to this image from http://goo.gl/6T16u. Text reads (from a maths challenge): The pony express officially started on April 3, 1860, when riders left simultaneously from St. Joseph, Missouri, and Sacramento, California.

The first westbound trip was made in 9 days and 23 hours and the eastbound journey in 11 days and 12 hours. (Ignoring the hours)
1. What day did the westbound trip arrive?
2. What day did the eastbound trip arrive?

See my +1s for the webpage.
