Title says it all. I've tried to make this decision so many times that I've lost count... certainly too many to be able to choose which one is definitive! I use RANDOM.ORG for this decision.

Spam is a canned, precooked meat mixture that is often referred to as mystery meat. Why it's not good for you: A single serving of spam has about 53% of the recommended amount of sodium. It's high in cholesterol and fat, and it has no nutrients or vitamins.

SPAM CANS PART 1: you are standing next to a pile of Spam cans these are sufficient in number to complete this puzzle! you wish to walk a distance of 100 miles (straight path) you can walk 20 miles per day to keep up your strength, you need to eat a Spam can per mile you can carry 60 cans, no more How long (minimum) will it take you to reach your destination if you can hide cans at points 20, 40, 60 and 80 only? PART 2: Ok; that was easy: just a warmup, right? This time, you can hide your cans anywhere you want. What is the minimum number of cans you need in order to reach your destination? Caution: you cannot hide a partSpamcan anywhere: too many ants.
