Spot on! I'm sure there will be some signage on the main road at the point you have to turn-off and if there isn't I'll set it up tomorrow morning. In any case keep an eye out for a factory on:

1. The left side of the road if you are coming from NH45 (GST Road)
2. The right side of the road if you are coming from East Coast Road (ECR)

The turn off point is near the factory:

1. Before it if you are coming from GST Road
2. After the factory if you are coming from ECR

This is very, very important...refuelling after reaching Adventure Zone will be difficult/time-consuming.

More than enough. You will have plenty left over (maybe 1/2 tank) at the end of the event.

I beg to differ. I carried 40 Ltrs xtra last year. This year I plan to fill up each day at Madurantakam which is 20 odd kms from AZ..

Ofcourse GS being the organiser has the easy way out for each SS. "We" are the guys who "burn" fuel

Yup..

We got to turn RIGHT BEFORE the paper factory if coming from GST road via Madurantakam

We got to turn LEFT AFTER the paper factory if coming from ECR at about 23 kms.

KS, when are you guys leaving Blore? I will mostly be going the GST road side...to reach AZ by 1600 hrs.

I was planning to join in now I'm not too sure. I'm having a tough time adjusting to the heat in chennai (was in my home town for 10days).

Thanks a lot Dr. J
