Lets say there were 4 men who went to a town to buy things for their fishing trip. 2 of them bought oars and two bought roap. on the way home they came across a river. the only way they could cross it is by rowing in a boat. only 2 can go across each time. how can yo0u get all four of them over to the other side

Well "roap" is a bit confusing , so maybe we should challenge "boat" also.
Anyway if they did use a boat, the quickest way of crossing is for the first 2 to pull the rope with them, and the other 2 pull the boat back.

I like that you included a forest.

and the river suddenly disapeared :o
and besides, there was no rope, only roap (i though at first it was road), no boat is even in the problem, and they had 2 oars and a fishing poll, and you didnt mention another body of water so you dont need a oar to fish, cast from the bank.

AMAZING!! That is just delightful. Wow. Great solution. Great pictures. Very amusing. Unfortunately, the boat is still the only way across.

I think this is the best answer to any puzzle I have ever seen on this site. Obviously there are some conditions missing from this puzzle but you still solved it exactly as stated. Brilliant.
