One must travel 7500 Km by 4-wheel jeep, over very rough terrain, with no possibility of repairing a tire that becomes ruptured.
Suppose one starts with 14 intact tires (the 4, plus 10 spares).
On average, tires rupture at the rate of 1 per 5,000 tire-Kms (the mean interval between ruptures is 5,000 tire-Kms). Ruptures occur independently of the of tire position or the distance already driven with the tire (i.e., the sources of failure are purely external). Ignore the possibility of multiple failures from a single source, e.g. a short bad section of the trail.
Suppose one starts with 10 intact tires (the 4, plus 6 spares).
