    I think It's going to be too hard for me to get there, I might have to ask them to give the prize to someone else :'(

    wuyanxu: It'll be total travel costs up to £50. Luckily I've still got an Oyster card with £5 on it. You only need to get to Tottenham Court Road tube station which is actually not a long walk from Euston rail station. Walking from St Pancras or Kings Cross isn't that far either. I'd say 40min.

    Yes, of course - you get up to £50 to help you get there, which (we looked into this) will cover most of the UK travelling after 10 am or so... :)

    Manchester :( I'd have to lug my LAN gear around with me all day, and even with just my laptop that's going to KILL me.

    Sorry, I forgot to actually read the forum rather than the blog page. I would have worked it out from Stockport!

    Unless I can get someone else from around here to win next week's prize, and doesnt mind lugging me and my stuff to london and dropping me off at the lan on the way back.... :p

    Edit: Plan is starting to come together.... the main problem is cost, as both my train tickets comes to over £100... which is just lolamount.

    Edit Pro Plus: Better plan as emerged, looks like I might be able to make it!

    £100 from Manchester to Euston? Thats madness. Probably cheaper on the Megabus.
