Thanks, this is good stuff. After Salisbury, I'm slated to participate in some ritual sacrifices at another meeting of druid affiliates in the mid-country (sorry, that's as specific as they'll allow. I'm to be met at the train, blindfolded, and taken to points unknown.) So, Ill be buying a 2nd ticket for a longer trek (4 hrs, I think). At this point, the pass starts to look decent rate-wise, though I'll probably still be paying £75 for convenience w/ the flexipass.
If you rent, get an automatic. Remember, these are RHD, so you'll have to be able to work the shift pattern with your left hand. I know of some that have found this to be such a problem that they eventually had the front passenger work the gears while the driver worked the clutch. On occassion, I drive old RHD Land Rover 109's here in the states, but even with the practice, I wouldn't want to have to be thinking about the lanes and the awkward shifting.
