yep, I keep a schedule too, which is the reason why i'm still at ch 4, half my time is spent in eating, poker, cleaning self/horse, and customization. I also stop and complete every random encounter on the way (even when they are repetitive)
BTW, here're some more cool things to try out:
- piss off abigail too much in the camp and her husband martson confronts arthur.
- surrender yourself to the cops and sometimes one of the gang members come to bail you out.
- sit near the campfire at night and someone will usually share a back story or a limerick, start singing a song etc
- after arthur has donated sufficient no of times to the beggars, the beggars will start giving back something to arthur when he passes them by
