unmodified thinset

I am installing travertine tile over ditra using unmodified thinset. How long before I can walk on it? Then, how long before I can move my refrigerator back in place? (I am thinking 24 and 48?) or should I wait longer....

a reason why unmodified is used over ditra is because it "dries/cures" faster from within, than the additives in modified that have to have air to cure. A safe bet would be the directions on the bag, tho i have pulled a tile the next day and the thinset was not hard. being its travertine, it will pull moisture out faster than say a porcelain tile would because of the moisture absorption rate. the fridge would be a concern because of the softness of the travertine and the fact that the rollers on the fridge take brunt of the weight . Use plywood under the rollers of the fridge to move it.
