An apple farmer went to town to sell a truck full of apples.  At his first stop, he sold 1/3 of his apples.  On the way to the next stop, he wrecked his truck and lost 1/3 of the remaining apples.  Of those he had left, the farmer gave away 1/2 to some children.  He then had 80 apples left. How many apples did the farmer have when he started his trip?
