Just back from a wonderful trip.

Firstly, let me thank Ashish Pallod for organising a very pleasant, & a quite a picturesque day out ! Cheers AP!

My wife and my 2 year old son enjoyed every bit of today.

It was a great pleasure meeting everybody who came from Pune, Mumbai & Bangalore. You guys rock !
Must say we are all a bunch of very enthusiastic T-BHPians, braving the weather and that adventure of a drive (the fog and rains) !

@selfdrive - mate, wish you were with us right from the start of the day. While we trying to hunt you down in the afternoon, the mobile reception at Bamnoli being zero, was a bugger!
Looks like we just missed you at the plateau.

Anyway, I'll write in a more detailed report at a later day. Its been a long day for us, hope it isn't that long for the Mumbai folks. Drive safe guys.

Leaving you all with a few teaser shots taken from my mobile camera. Please excuse the picture quality. More, nicer, detailed pictures are bound to flow; taken by quite a few members carrying DSLRs. Hope this satisfies the curious, for now

More later..
Cheers.

p.s. - AP now you owe me one vada pav..

Thanks Monaro and F150 for the pics. After selfdrive's post yesterday, I was afraid that the trip was a washout. But looking at the pics, it does look like you guys had fun. Let the pictures and narration flow!

@Silverado

Finally we meet up. Never been on TBHP meet together when we were in same workplace. I cannot tell you how amazing it was to see you. All our old memories were so much freshened up. Throughout the day, it was like old times, riding together, covering each other on highway.
Amazing to discuss things we did. My better half had a good time. Thanks to your wife.

Watching Nano on ghats was amazing. It is defiantly a head-turner. See for yourself...

Kaas and Bamnoli: Sep 2011 Team-BHP Meet-17092011118.jpg

@Monaro,


I was surprised when you identified me with my handle at Mc.D
What was more awesome is the enthu you carried since the time we met, till the end of the day.
Last year, I was the one to reach home first (even though I am from Mumbai) and post the very first pics of TBhp Lineup.
Glad to see the first post coming from you. Amazing...
Now you know that I am just a floor apart, so lets meetup

@F150,

Good to meet you. Nice pics.
I liked; Spider, The approaching boat cutting water, Outburst in cloud above lake.
Amazing.

@ Ashish Bhau,

Good to meet you and see you again. My better half was really looking forward to meet bhabhi and kids. bhau, next after this I am onto completing my previous travelogue. Do watch the videos. You will love those.

@ Gostel,

Nice to see you and though an year might have passed since last years meet, you and your better half's Enthu appeared younger than before
All the best for your Leh Trip (I guess you finally got the flight connections from other thread)

@Pari,

I know you might have really liked the roads (must have missed moon ride on Mahape road) :-)

@Keyur,

Nice meeting you mate.

@F1Fan,

Nice to meet you too. Now that my Nomad is back on roads, I will be visiting Malad often. Will let you know and we can meet up.
Waiting for the Post Kaas meet and yes, this time too a Kaas Cake will be there. Thanks to remember my weird travelogue. Will be completing it by today itself.

@Yogesh

I remembered crossing you at E-way and you were the first whom I caught after my late start from home. It was a whole chasing for me till McD, Katraj to caught Pari and F1Fan with whom I was supposed to make convoy.
What it took for me to catch them all @ McD, Katraj was this(to cover up my one hour delay)...

Thanks everyone who came to kaas meet.

@selfdrive, sorry, we could not catch up, may be next time.

@koushic_s, you came from all the way from Banglore,
it was disappointment for all of us as we could not catch up,
i hope, you reached to pune safely.

@gostel, sir, whats hurry to return to satara, we had nice photo-shoot, we all missed you at the last moment.

@monaro, next time, you will get vada-paav from me.

I started alone from 12mati at @7:30,
as in laws visited night before d-day, wife could not come to the kaas.
Reached to Mahendra exe at 9:30 AM sharp,
could not locate anyone,
had breakfast.
Then, everyone started to arrive,
we left the place at @10:45 am,
went directly to Bamnoli.
.
.
.you will read rest of the story in someone's post

.

lastly, me and monaro said good-bye to each other at 7:30 PM,
reached to 12mati at @9:30PM.

Ashish Bhau, What an amazing start.

Bought the belt for Kaas only. Belt ka photo leke aapne meri trip safal kar di.
Yes, the time I met Silverado and watched his Nano, I told the same thing to my wife.
@Pari, you should not scare a kid like that specially when father has Giant Fortuner. (You will be tied to bonnet and driven)

Hi All,

It was a wonderful and a refreshing meet. Though I have been on T-BHP for quite long now, it was my first T-BHP meet. Wifey and me enjoyed to the fullest. Wifey got to know what exactly T-BHP is. It was passion unleashed for me. All I can say is "WONDERFUL"

All in all, it was lovely meeting all T-BHP'ians.

Here are my version of pics

1. At the Kaas Lake
2. The Spider
3. Rainbow at Kaas Plateau
4. Thats Pari and F1fan, I'm following on my way to Bamnoli
5. Finally the convoy

@Abhi : I reached Panvel McD at around 5.35. Couldn't see anyone, thought that I had missed the convoy. Then I moved on and said that I'll catch everyone at Mahendra Executive. After seeing you on the road, I felt good that I haven't missed the convoy. But then you were at such a speed which was difficult to catch up for me and I again thought that I'll miss the convoy .

After reaching the Satara toll Naka at 10:15, I was struggling to find Mahendra Executive. I just googled and found out the number. Called them up and reached there. Seeing all the T-BHP cars there brought a smile on my face since I had not missed the convoy.

That was Royal Cruiser from Bangalore! He had taken a different route. Where did you see his car and at what time? (Probably around 4 just before the Kaas plateau - some boating point?)

Hi guys, we had an amazing trip, in fact we are still having an awesome trip. We are now at Lavasa sipping coffee. BTW, we've visited some very nice places near Pune.. Last two days have been some of best days for us in terms of photography.
Really sorry that we couldn't catch you guys up except for monaro(satyen) n f150(anvesh, sorry if I got your id wrong), nice meeting you guys. Ashish site, really feeling nad that we couldn't meet, we were keeping our eyes wide open to find you guys cars but couldn't. We couldn't even meet Karthik, sorry man, hope you've reached home safely..
Hope we would be able to post a report soon once we are back in Bangalore..

Ashish bhau, thanks for once again organizing the Kaas meet. My wife too enjoyed the drive through the clouds from kaas plateau to Bamnoli. The bloom on the plateau was covered with cloud but was really dense. Anyway, people were not allowed to go close to the flower beds and could only watch from a distance. Overall the drive and boat ride were very enjoyable.
Sorry guys, and to myself for missing out the last line-up on the plateau. I mis-understood that we were to do the final assembly at Mahendra's. Anyways, we discovered RajPurohit in Satara City as source for yummy kandi-pedha and kalakand. We had dinner at some Dhaba at Vele and then continued rush towards Mumbai. The Nomad overtook us somewhere after Vele and before Katraj. I frantically flashed my headlights to catch his attention, but Abhi you must have thought there was some rogue driver behind you. Haha.

It was lovely meeting some old faces once again and also some new faces. Hope to meet you guys again in future meets. Lemme check if can upload some pictures.

Do correct me if I am wrong!

Had a great time (though I skipped the Bamnoli part and hit Thosegar and Chalkewadi instead) and ended up meeting Royalcruiser at most places!

My First T-Bhp Meet was a memorable one!

Kaas lake was a view straight from dreams!
Roads were fantastic and meet was well planned.

@nomadabhi it was your pics from last year due to which i was eagerly awating this meet, and it was fantastic to meet both of you.

The only thing i felt was it ended so soon!
I really enjoyed the Photo shoot and wished we had more time!

I guess next time mumbai guys should come down to Pune stay overnight and we can reach Kaas much earlier!

Ashish Bhau - Thanks for that pic, yes we do love Tbhp and its stickers.

How about a meet without family with overnight stay in tents on Kaas plateau?

Wow!

That was some meet guyz. Superb!

The turnout is great. Pune, Mumbai, Bangalore & 12mati too. @AP ji, I always wanted to meet you since the Sheetal Hotel meet almost a year back. Hoping to meet you in person soon.

Great photos there. @AP, @keyur and others.

@keyur: That teaser pic is one hell of a pic man. True artistry! I am eagerly waiting for more from you.

Looks like the spider caught all shutterbugs in its net. All and all, awesome meet. Hope I can make it to the next one.

Hi All,

Saw the team-bhp convoy as they entered the Kaas region, where the forest personnel were stopping cars, sadly our driver suggested we parked there. Saw Ashish Pallods estilo and couple of MH O1 cars. I believe the convoy went to Bamnoli village from there. Parking was an issue.

@Ashish Pallod- Would have been good if I had your no.

@Silverado- How was your experience with the Nano, please share.

There was a Vashi registered Porsche Cayenne turbo behind, did it belong to a Bhpian ?

That was Nomadabhi's estilo, i was in my alto behind estilo.
You should have joined our convoy for further travel to Bamnoli.

How was your experience at Kaas?
