brian, you are correct, my friend. it was in a book by martin gardner
titled "my best mathematical and logic puzzles" and it had references
to two similar problems called the "the jeep problem" and "crossing
the desert" problem. geez, you guys are good. thank you for pointing
me to that problem. I reserved that book at the local lib. Seems to
be a collection of great analytical problems. appreciated.
