BT, I think you've posted long after you spoke to them----I spoke to Ravvs at 330 pm yesterday and they were at the Orissa border at that time. Rambha is just 65 kms from there, so they surely must have reached the OTCC Pantha Nivas by 5 pm.

True. There was a latency.

I caught up with Team AP2AP2AP today. Our plan was accurately coordinated to the last 30 seconds.

We met 1 km from the Vidyasagar Setu Junction on NH6 where we had a quick photo session. I was sharing with them my emotional feelings about the roads they have just been travelling on from Hyderabad.

Pleasure meeting you guys. Have a safe and enriching journey!

What time was the rendezvous, BT?

Hey Basu, thanks for the snaps. It's nice to see the band and one can really see that they are having a blast. Nice mix of people they are.

Guess they must be on their way to Siuri today, as per the conversation I had with them last evening. The guys have not been rushing it (that's very good) and are going as per the original plan.

Here's wishing them an awesome time.

23.12. Depart Siliguri N/h. Tezpur (drive via Jalpaiguri, Falakatta, Alipurduar, Boxirhat, Gauripur, Naranarayan Bridge, Goalpara, Guwahati and Mangaldoi). This is another long day and we are keeping our fingers crossed and praying to the presiding deities of roads to give us good roads.
When are you guys likely to reach Guwahati? You are going to pass both my residence (near BRTF campus) and workplace (Gauhati University) on the way. I'd love to have a dekko at the team.

PS. On 31/12/2008 we started from Siliguri at 2.30 pm (on my week-old Palio), took the same route and arrived at Guwahati at the stroke of new year, driving at moderate speed and with a tea stop at Gauripur.

Update:
Team AP was joined by ADC at Siliguri.
Passed Jalpaiguri at 08:30.
Both have had a taste of jams (traffic, not Druk)!

Took a look at the Skoda,and suggested they not take the Dhupguri - Falakata direct road, but stick to the main road, and cut across from NH31C to NH31 using the kamakhyaguri road.

It's been two days since I heard from these guys. They seem to be too busy having fun . Does anybody have an update on their progress. Phones don't work where they are.

The last call I got was from Nazim on the 26th night, from a landline.

Nothing that I found really. As per my last 2 trips, I would not Underestimate Siliguri though

Thumbs up

Seems like the AP2AP team is sure having lots of fun.
Basu's pic says it all.
Hope the team is driving safe and enjoying every bit of their journey.
Good luck to them for their journey.
We should be in for a real eye-treat soon enough with Nazim bhai's hard work.
