Great. So folks who don't have tents pleaseeeeeeeeeeee get one and sleeping bags/mats. The thrill of camping in a tent is beyond words. No fun in sleeping in a cottage.

You can also rent tents from Adventure One on Museum Road (just opp SBI bank gate and before India Garage)

Cheers,

One more confirmation here...for cottage at Chandan's place.

@hrag: May need to hitch a ride on your 4x4 Safari. Hope it will be sufficient with these many people.

Those who ride with me will have to push it out if stuck in slush .

I can take 4 people along. Vinay and chandan (if he needs a ride) get priority. One towel placed for mjothi. one towel for snaronikar.

I am game for this. I am right now in Hyderabad and would be back next Thursday.

Man, this is one hell of a month I am living.
1st weekend: Yercaud
2nd weekend: Delhi
3rd Weekend: Hyd
4th Weekend: 4X4 off Sakleshpur (Assuming, people don't leave me out )

Ok, I don't have a 4X4, no tent etc.
So guys tell me, what all I need to buy? I would be back to blore only on Thursday. So do I have enough time?
And btw, I live in Indiranagar. Anyone in and around that area?

Thanks
Pavan
