This adventure demonstrates the importance of a rigorous problem-solving analysis

This exercise asks teams to determine what information is necessary to determine what the problem is, then to solve it.

You are equipped with a paddling raft, a supply craft, and two boatmen. Nine days ago, you left base at river mile 0 on a 15-day trip. From start to finish your journey will cover 226 miles over 130 rapids, the land dropping nearly 200 feet in elevation.
