USACO Silver 2016 February Problem 2

In my opinion, this problem should be in the bronze recursion section because the problem doesn’t really use flood fill as it does with casework and recursion.

Are you sure about that? I initially solved it with floodfill myself.

It is just checking all of the possible cases so I thought that maybe it is just basic recursion. That is what I did except I made sure that I didn’t visit more than once.
