Folks now for some info on food !

Breakfast @ Rs 25 will have a choice of:

Omelette + bread or chapati
or
Puri + Bhaji
or
Idly Vada (this has to come from Achampet)
and
Tea

Lunch @ Rs 50 per vegetarian meal and Rs 65 for non-vegetarian meal

Dinner @ Rs 50 per vegetarian meal and Rs 65 for non-vegetarian meal

Please indicate your preferences against your names, so we can give them some lead info to plan on.

I would like to mention that the forest department staff are doing this at cost and if, and only if, they do cross the budget they may request for a slight surcharge, which I hope all are okay with. I doubt the need for this will arise but just in case !

BTW please don't mind us going into the nitty gritty of these things. Once the forest department gets a hang of doing this well I'm sure they'll have a rounded off accom tariff with meals included and the ability to offer some choice in menus too. I'm just trying to make it easier for them to plan

I see that you are travelling alone. In order to optimise the number of cars, may I suggest you hopping onto mine as there is 1 place free.

Traveloholic: I see that Rajesh & Rajkumar Goli have places free in their vehicle. If they don't mind, may be you can join.

The idea here is to try to fill the Safari Vehicles first and then if need be then get Sedans/Hatchbacks.

Correct me if wrong

sure MileCruncher. as much as I enjoy driving alone, in this context what you say makes sense. after all, it would be ironic if we went on a forest saving trip in more cars than necessary. where do you live? I was wondering if I could come there and park at your place, return, pick up my car and push off...

Your call. I guess atleast 7 and up? Ultimately its not whether they are allowed but they may not be too comfortable with much of the activity, remember its getting hot during the day time. But if you are okay and feel you can manage then its fine. Infants definitely not advisable.

Thanks Ani for the update on the carpool thing & thanks Venkat for offering me the ride. I see that you are also vying to carpool with Ani. So, incase you are carpooling with Ani, then I will try and hop into Rajesh's Ride or Rajkumar's Ride, if and only if they are ok with it. In case you are planning to ride on your own, then we would love to hop in.

I shall keep the kind hearted ride owners updated about my car pool status.
