Wish I could read it. Unfortunately wapo makes you sign up.
Super short version:
Man, woman, and young teen on rafting trip in remote area trapped above a waterfall with no way down.
They write a message on a piece of paper and put it in a Nalgene bottle and send it down stream.
Message is found by others, they are rescued the next morning.
So, if you threw a Nalgene bottle over Yellowstone Falls how long would it take it to reach the Gulf of Mexico if it didn't get hung up along the way?
Sounds like a fun math problem. Yellowstone river is flowing at 1830ft3/s right now.
