833 apples

You can actually get some apples to Bananaville. This is only a temporary solution of mine but let's say that you bring 1000 apples 667 miles to Bananaville, therefore 333 apples remain there, 333 miles from Bananaville. You then go to the Appleville bringing nothing and repeat that process 2 times, so 333 miles from Bananaville you'll have 999 apples (assuming there's no one to steal your apples -- duh!). Then if you bring those 999 apples 333 miles to Bananaville, you'll have 666 apples you can get to Bananaville.

I have a question about the answer if you get more apples don't you go back to Appleland to get more? Than you would have to go one thousand miles to get to bananaville. The truck can only hold one thousand apples at a time. Even if you went 999 miles with 1000 apples went back to fill up the truck did it again than you would have 1002 apples left but no way to carry the two extra apples. How would you get the two apples to bananaville?
