I've started the challenge and I'm having fun. I have taken a few pictures I would like to share. When they have completed a week, I'll update their status.

Cloe reenforcing Axel.



Axel got a little stuck and I had to reset him.



Cloe got one of those tunnels the first day of work.



She ended up working really late to finish exploring it.



Axel was guarding the house against the evil ice cream truck.



I'll be busy tomorrow, hmm , today, so I may not get to play this again until Sunday. It is a lot of fun.

Yes, I forgot to mention that. That was her haul from the trip into the tunnel.

Thank you BG.

Played this one for a little while yesterday. Here is a pictorial.

Trip to France

Cloe had a wish to go to France, and I thought this would be a great opportunity for her to get a head start on some of her skills. So I sent her to the library to get her first gardening skill.



Off she went to France early the next morning. For fun she played her guitar. First at the Nectary and then in front of the General Store.





She jogged everywhere.



There are two major sources of gardening in France, one at the Nectary and the other at a huge house on the other side of town. She jogged every day back and forth between the two with stops to play guitar in the town centre. She slept at the Nectary one night and in a tent at the huge empty house the next. I had given her the Preferred Traveler reward so she could stay for six days. By the time she was finished and ready to go home, she had level 8 athletic, level 7 gardening and level 6 guitar.



She stopped by the book store and bought some recipe books for Ben. An hour before leaving she sat down to read. She had also picked up a book at the base camp for Jane and when she got home, she also had the book she was reading at the book store in her inventory. Jane will get that one too. (I usually sell them for extra income, but because of the rules, they will go to Jane to read.)



Back to work

Cloe investigated a tunnel.



Ben read one of the recipe books Cloe brought back for him and completed his LTW.



Cloe started a garden in the lower basement.



Bill upgraded all the toilets and showers in the main bathroom to unbreakable.



Jane loved the books Cloe brought back for her and after reading little before work she was happy to continue writing her 4th book and start her 5th.



Ben found a tunnel to investigate. He came back a little singed.



Nothing like taking an absent minded vampire out to dinner. Jane is in the restaurant while he waited outside making phone calls. When she finished dinner she told him a ghost story and sealed their friendship.



Axel has level 7 in the hunting skill and has acquired the hunting trait. I bought him the Alpha Pet LTR. He is digging for treasure.



Not sure who found the tiberium. But placed it in another of the 2nd basement rooms.



They did pretty good at the consignment store with the woohooium that Axel found and the palladium that was dug up by Cloe or Ben.



Ben made Hot and Sour soup for dinner. So glad there was no one sitting across from Ben. Ben took no notice and washed his dishes. Bill put the fire out. Bill got the wish to upgrade the stove to fireproof even though it was not the source of the fire. It is now fireproof. (I missed the whole thing as I was watching Axel when I got the notice.)



Well if you'd get there sooner! Arrrggg... fined.



My Cloe too came back from an adventure in a tunnel dressed like this. The two gnomes are Ben's. (Can we sell the gnomes as the are a result of mining?)



The tiberium grew and this is the value as Jane dropped them off at the consignment store.



Jane had her birthday. No one else got there in time as the were otherwise engaged.



She seems pleased with herself, however, she is having a mid life crisis.



Funds as I left the save. This is before the sale of the tiberium. (It is the eve of the full moon and it was very late and I needed to sleep.)



Until next time.

Thanks EQ. I forgot to look what week/day I was on, but I think it's about the end of week two.

It's great seeing your update MW, the vacation trip with Cloe is a great idea for building her skills you seem to be doing well handling the crew Smile

You can sell anything you mine up, I kept mine as I had enough money and I find them fun popping all over the place watching tv and such. I believe they also grant benefits but am not sure has been a while since I looked that kind of thing up.

Thanks LM. Myself, I find them a little annoying. I'll probably sell them. Thanks for the answer.
