Ok, I'm here. This better be worth it! Membership was equivalent to a pack of Red Man, a brick of cheap .22 shells, a gallon of gas for my scooter, and a can of Coke.
To me it's cost six kilos of oven chips, 20 marlboro red, six bud, ten coffees and a bueno bar... At least that's a rough guess of what I'd have bought, judging on last weeks shopping...
OK, break that down into something practical. How much would that be using the "Pints of Guinness" as a measuring stick?
About eleven pints of guinness... Students night in town could bring that up to 25 but... I actually think my logic was quite effective on the shopping one, that's probably what I'd buy except I don't really eat that much oven chips, they're just cheap...
(panting, breathless) I got here at last- didn't miss the party, did I? For my $0.02 on the $23.40- the year's membership is the cost of a day's train travel to work and a Tesco sandwich for lunch, or about 350 miles of biking, or maybe seven pints of Guinness (maybe more if I went to a college bar).

Which train-operator (general interest)? L

Erm, National Express I think, possibly first capital connect or something- the Cambridge-Liverpool St. line. It's a massive ripoff but it has a captive audience :( I'd complain but I'll gladly suck up the cost for the ability to live in the awesomest city ever again.

Oh, yes them. My main commuting experience was into Leeds with First. Now I'm a bit confused with regard to the awesomest city ever, as your profile says you're in Herts?

Ah, probably need to update that- Cambridge, it called to me, so I moved back and have done more interesting stuff in the last week than I did in about six months in Herts. Granted, it's May Week so not a fair comparison, but the point stands that there is stuff to do here. Also I just rode my bike home alone at midnight on a friday night through an allegedly "rough" part of town feeling completely safe.

Ah, super. Good and flat around there, my area is full of hills. Still silly buggers do cycle through the place...
