Default but the yeast is alright?

So I'm leaving on vacation to the Dominican Republic on tuesday morning, and I'll be back sometime sunday night. I should be recieving some WLP203 Burton ale yeast In the mail on monday, and I was hoping to get it into a starter so that I could brew the next week when I came back. Does anybody know if it's fine to leave it unattended all week or if my plan will make my yeast somehow useless?

No, it won't be OK.
You could take a drive out on the Island, and I'll be happy to babysit it for you, but I can't guarantee that there will still be a starter when you return, but I might have a new batch of IPA. (I'm just missing the yeast).
Seriously, I agree with the others. It should be fine.

-a.
