Brain Teaser 3/05/2013

An explorer undertakes to cross a desert with the help of porters. The length of the trail corresponds to 6 days walk. But the explorer, like each porter, can carry only 4 days food. How many porters does the explorer need? In fact, can he cross at all?

I haven't figured out the minimal amount yet, but I definitely think it can be crossed. I love simple but difficult puzzles like this. I'm going to work on finding the lowest number possible!
