It was wonderful meeting up with the Famous Five this morning; self, Hitanshu (Phamilyman) & Narayan made it to Crowne Plaza, Gurgaon to catch up with the trailblazers. Quite a few pics were clicked, hope to see them up soon........

Guys, great spirit, keep it up & Good luck for the rest of the journeycheers:

Added Bonus: Met three neighbours of mine (Hrishi's Sister & Brother in law and HVK's friend Rajiv, himself a Tbhpian), pleasure making your acquaintance folks

(I understand that Allahabad is now the scheduled halt instead of Varanasi)

Hopefully, we will catch the GQ guys today @ NH6.

@Jothi - lemme know once you guys reach Durgapur BP. I will hand you over / Text you the details of the Hotels in Kharagpur once we meet. i guess you guys are a bit lagging behind schedule.

we (shuvd & I - if he gets well by today) will wait for you @ the NH6 / Durgapur express way intersection (flyover) in a Red Palio / Silver Octy. If Evo joins us - he will be most probably in a Blue vRS.

Drive Safe guys.

IMO, he can upload the pics from the hotel rooms he is staying and not while travelling on NH. I have already tried this and it is possible OR if the hotel has a wifi it would be much more easier. Yes, it will be slow but it is possible.

With an average of 1000 kms per day, uploading photos would probably be his last priority.

Last I spoke to the troopers, they were settling down at Allahabad for the night, some bad traffic jam just before hitting town, no updates as yet from this morning start. Looks like they are living off the 'Grocery Store' in HVK's Scorpio.

Update:

They are in Bihar now. i guess they are running a bit late (taking Bihar in the morning is definitely a good idea).

i am in touch with MJ. hopefully they will pass through the outskirts of Kolkata by evening / night. They may spend the night around here (as per their plan they wanted to halt at Kharagpur - but taking Kharagpur at night is not a good idea IMO - since the connecting Kolaghat bridge to Kgp is under repair work and they may get stuck there).

Drive safe guys.
