Don't underestimate the Camel. I found this with the Google search:
" In 1892 a horse and a camel competed in a famous one-day, 109.4-mile race in Australia.

The horse won by a hair, then promptly collapsed and died. The camel, though second, crossed the finish line relatively unfazed by the experience.

So the answer might be, in a 109.4-mile race, the horse will win, but in a 110-mile race, bet on the camel."

Camels can run up to 40 mph and they can run for days without water.

Another collector asked this a while ago and I posted an answer ... I think this will lead you to the thread .. (if not, search for Camel Express - exact phrase)

Those are very attractive stamps!

HA! From the article centerstage posted in the referenced thread:

Quote:
Three shambling camels loaded down with more than 7000 letters plodded into Los Angeles early yesterday morning.

THAT is fantastic writing.
