Default Stay options at Pune for Thursday night.

If anyone is planning to halt at Pune for Thursday night (24-June), I could book guest flats in my apartment. Each furnished flat (1 bed room, hall, bathroom) has a double bed that can accomodate two people. The rooms are furnished with a double bed, ward robe, geyser, sofa set etc. The cost is only Rs. 500 per flat per day. I stay in Aundh, which is about 8 km from Bangalore-Mumbai Highway. There is also one 2-bedroom flat that can accomodate 4 people costing Rs. 750 per day. Parking also will not be a problem. PM me if anyone is interested in this option.

-Biju

p.s. If there is someone from Pune who can take me as a companion, let me know. I would like to join the OTR then before Kunal closes the registration.

I would not want to leave them behind!

For a few late comers the majority will suffer.
Hi Kunal,

I understand your concern but strongly disagree with the condition.

People who are sincere and have the dedication for the event will be punctual irrespective of the distance between their accommodation and the starting point. It's unfair to deny an individual' s entry just because he or she cannot stay overnight due to some unavoidable circumstances.

Anyways, all the best for the event.

In what post did i deny your particpation or anybody elses???

If you had come for the recces you will understand my farm is interior far away from the main road with nobody to ask directions.

How would you make it on time on saturday morning without the organisers actually guiding you in from the main road??

We would be too busy getting things in gear for the event on saturday morning to send a vehicle out to guide you to the event site!

I have to look at it from a different perspective...

I am not trying to ruin anybody's fun....if you really want to come book your seat and take your own chances....i will at the most be able to verbally give you directions......

Guys please refrain from posting anything more about the event schedule and coming on saturday morning, it's been done to death

Kunal starting the event on time will be entirely your call. Just set a cut off point beyond which the event will not be delayed.

Lets say you wish to accommodate late comers, have a cut off time for them too and request one member of the organising team to start late. At the cut off time that last Jeep can leave the meeting point on the main road to head back to your farm

Re: Joining in the morning
Not that I am joining in on either day but a GPS track would do the job very nicely?

You are right Sudev.

I guess this can done by anybody who is local to the area. Take a GPS device, log the track from lonavala to the AKC start-off point. Make the KML file available to whoever interested. Then people can find their way without help.

AKC and EXAMM fee paid. Leave sanctioned. All set for the mega offroad festival !!

As I would be carting some offroad tyres to the venue (these can't be driven on tarmac, they would be horrible) I was wondering if someone could mark the beginning of the Rajmachi trail on Wikimapia or give some coordinates so I could leave early after breakfast to reach the site and change tyres, till everyone gathers there. Don't want to hold anyone up.

BTW what is the distance to be driven on tarmac from Lonavla before you hit the Rajmachi trail?

Oh man, you REALLY set. I think you would be having sleepless nights -- just like a kid before vacations

Honestly, even I can't wait for 3 days of pure off-road bliss
