Arrow Project Go Goa in a Cedia

I intend to write this travelogue in pieces - That way my eyesight will not suffer much as my surfing hours match EST...I am in India ofcourse, in humble hyderabad - but a late sleeper...plus I hope to be elevated to a bhpian by increasing the contri as well...

For a long time my cedia (bought it in Oct) was asking for a longdrive to know what it feels to be in the fifth gear and cross the 100 mark on the speedo - so off we went - 5 of us inlcuding 2 couple of which one was yours truly and his wife...

We did a total distance of 1732 apart from the boozing and quintals of goan fish that went down a mallu throat - the kms include the distance done in goa as well. Hyd - Goa distance is around 780 kms.

The highlight of the drive was a 178 kmph on the speedo on the expressway between Kohlapur and Belgaum - And considering the fact that the car did that with 5 of us plus a fully loaded boot...it was insane..for non-believers I can post the snap we clicked - though that will show only a 170 (my cousin couldnt time the camera, mustabeen having butterflies in his stomach...). Take a bow - all cedia fans!!

We started from Hyderabad at 5 pm on 21st Dec...Straight from office...the onward journey will unfold in the next episode...welcome to the soap...be sure to tune in..this was one helluva joy ride and I promise I will not throw in any home cooked masala to make it all the more spicey - This will be the reality TV stuff - and I repeat - the stuff about the speedo wasn't a masala..so see you on the thread soon...
