    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.
