It's like 'oldest city in North America' - a simple matter to
determined, but when do you start counting? When it became a city or
when someone pitched a tent there? Does it matter if it's still a city,
and if so, what definition of 'city' do you use?
I don't know how there can be two longest migrations, but in the case of
the caribou, I think the length of migration depends partly on which
herd you pick. There's more than one.
