What is a Lunar worth?

I have decided to try to quantify my barter rate, and also change to an hourly rate rather than day rate.
This gives us the Loon hour. Or Lunar.

Which seems to me to be as good a name for a unit of currency as any other, and there are at least some places where Loon hours are highly valued.

So what is a Lunar worth to you? Wink

Sounds more like a nightly rate than an hourly rate.

Most LETS schemes have some sort of unit of exchange. If you don't like it, then deal with me in Stirling... Should we have any business to deal.

I think the question should be What is a Lunar worth to Hairyloon?

A man/woman should judge his/her own worth. Smile

Edited to add Woman as well...

Oh I know my worth. Luckily for everybody else, I am prepared to sell it for chep.

In any place possessed of half an ounce of good sense, that can be assumed and does not need to be said.

28 I thought.

If an orbit is worth roughly a pound, then that is not an unreasonable rate.

In our LETS, our currency the Stag was set at the equivalent of 1 for ease of working out rates and 'prices'.
