Make a script file like:
date MMDDhhmmYYYY
echo /path/to/script | at now + 10 days

Chmod +x the script and run it as root at the starting time you want. 
It will run itself again in 10 days.  The "now + 10 days"  is literal - 
the program will do the math.

But, some strange things may happen to any cron jobs or other at 
commands that span the time warp.
