Solution by Garry Francis
----------------------------------------
This is a minimal solution. It is full of sudden death, unwinnable situations, guess-the-verb and
lots of bugs, at least one of which makes the game impossible to finish. To fix the latter, in line
1270, change OB(OC,1) to OB(2,1).

You start the game with one dollar. You must buy supplies, but you don't have enough money to
buy everything. You will find that some of the supplies are red herrings. The best strategy is
probably to buy nothing initially, then backtrack when you think you may have found a use for
something. Unfortunately, this means a lot of repetitive backtracking.

Your inventory is limited to four items, but you can buy the mule, load things onto the mule, then
carry the mule. However, you cannot carry the mule indoors. If you drop the mule, it wanders off,
but you can TETHER MULE to prevent this.
