(You may not vote on this poll)

× 3 (8.82%) Day 1 Sunday - crush it

× 1 (2.94%) Day 2 Monday - why waste time

× 2 (5.88%) Day 3 Tuesday - get'er done

× 6 (17.65%) Day 4 Wednesday - because it's hump day

× 7 (20.59%) Day 5 Thursday - 2k a day sounds reasonable

× 7 (20.59%) Day 6 Friday - what took you so long?

× 5 (14.71%) Day 7 Saturday - cutting it close

× 3 (8.82%) Not going to happen, you're fooling yourself

I wasn't going to post this until the weekend, but it's a civic holiday here and I'm working, which means it's dead quiet and I've got a bit of time on my hands. I'll be starting my 2 week vacation on Aug 16, and will more than likely be doing a run at 10k the first week. If for some reason I don't start it on Sun Aug 17, it'll be the week after on the 24th. Either way, wondering how long people think it'll take for me to get to 10k? Keeping in mind I'm on vacation and have time on my hands, but plan on getting out end enjoying my time off as well. I'll probably try to post daily totals in this thread as I go along.

I give you 3 days in and your total for the week will be 12, 400 =)
Video games are like life, difficult, frustrating, but most of all, they're fun and rewarding when you slow down and enjoy them.

It all depends on the games you have to play

Yeah, personally I think 10k is enough for most people; no matter what your gamerscore is, it'll still take some planning and effort to get done.

His vision and hearing is poor, he can't communicate, he's wheelchair bound, etc etc etc. He's also 100% tube fed (he has a plug that goes into his stomach). So yeah, it's a little hard for me to get AWAY for vacations, particularly alone, because that puts more strain on her. Which I don't want to do.

Now to take a week off of work (I get 5 weeks vacation a year) for a stay-cation, where i just play games for 12-16 hours a day and still can help her with our son, that is possible. The only way I will be able to go to AF is if the little ones birth father has them that week over the summer and then just my wife and I could go. So yeah, chances are slim. We went to Hawaii in 2011 and Vegas last year. So maybe 2016 the stars will align again and I can convince her that Terre Haute is the place to be.

It all depends on the games you got but if you are serious Buck, then I say 4 days.
Don't expect to put up anything else tonight, so;
Start 377,341

EDIT: 377,351 based on first day scores. Not sure where the other 10 came from...
