    ...walk backwards* around Sentosa :D

    I want you to guess how many hours it will take me to walk backwards* all around Sentosa, map below show the path I'm going to walk.
    View attachment 1885
    your guess will have to be half hour intervals, so if I make it in 20hours then 19½hours win over 21hours (hope thats clear enough)

    I will walk backwards all the way and where I can't walk I will either swim(swimming with "run" speed) a short distance or fly up the cliff and continue my walk up there. In some places it might be too crowded with badass mobs to walk within then I will either swim(swimming with "run" speed) past them or fly just past them. I will not bring any ammo or other ped eating things except a fap so if/when I get attacked I will try and drown the mob or if it eat/smash me before I will tp back to the coords and continue my walk, time keeps on running even if/when I die. Exception will be if I'm close enough to run back to the death coords I will stop the clock for the time to run back, but not if I TP back.
    I got some experience about this crazy thing as I done it on another planet before so I know what awaits me...

    And second you can also win prizes by guessing how much fruit, dung and stones I pick up along the way.
    guess the amount of each kind of fruit/stone and dung

    Fruits:
    Haimeros - found some
    Papplon - found some
    Bombardo - found some
    Caroot - found some

    Stones:
    Brukite - found some
    Nissit - found some
    Trutun - found some
    Kaldon - found some
    Sopur - found some
    Rutol

    Dung - found some

    Main Prize:
    5 rookie mining finders
    (to the one who have the closest guess on hours for the walk)

    Secondary Prize:
    1 rookie mining finder
    (for each kind of fruit and dung to the one who gets the closest numbers)

    might need some corrections but this is the general idea, which I will start on today. I wont tell anyone the progress in time before the contest is over but I will update my position if you like once in a while.

    Starting location:
    Planet Arkadia (31491, 8792, 87)
    2011-08-23 13:25:09


    *since we have two speeds even backwards today I will use the slower one that you get when you have walking selected

    you need to specify how much of each type of fruit/stone, you're free to guess on each kind too

    I can not begin to fathom how bored you must be with EU to want to do this. I know because I was bored enough with Caly at one point I dedicated a few weeks to nothing but getting the distance traveled achievements done in the same manor.

    I will have to say for the travel time about 43 hours as it took me 20+ to get all the fight distance done in a VTOL. Ill add to the post later on fruit and stone predictions
