However, our explorer doesn't manage very well with the camel, and he doesn't find again his food dumps in the desert (because of chacals maybe...).
He decides to use bearers. Each bearer, as well as explorer,
can carry 20 days of food for one man (as much as a camel, consider a bearer = a camel + a driver).
The explorer ends alone, and all bearers return to the starting point.
Each bearer must do only one go and return.
How many bearers are required to cross a 30 days desert in 30 days ? Solution Details
