The photos, the write ups and the status updates of some of the attendees with whom I am friends on FB is a clear indication that this meet must have been one of the most awesome fun times ever.
Feels miserable to have missed it out but it gives me immense satisfaction that all of you enjoyed it to the hilt.
Doing the whole ORR (to the extent ready and open to public) has been on my radar for some times now and the chance of getting to do it with all of you fellow forum members would have been the most wonderful opportunity but alas, the preparations for my impending trip starting in another 2 hours from now did not permit me to join in.
So, what was the final list of actual attendees and also their rides? (PS : Do include Traveloholic and Fleetmaster also in the list who met all of you at a point somewhere enroute).

Guys

Only today I read in TOI about the government mulling tolls all along the ORR from May.

Think about the $$$ we saved in the run yesterday . And imgagine slowing down every 10 minutes to pay toll. It's best to exploit the ORR before that happens.

The lunch was so heavy, I had to skip dinner for the second day. Feeling re-invigorated today, especially after seeing pedal-to-medal action in the Fiesta S and the Cruze yesterday.

+1. I too read the same news and felt exactly the same. Lets plan another run before May-2012 before they start the toll tax

My first drive meet and what a fantastic way to enjoy both the roads and food.

Attendance was decent with a wide variety of cars and all smoking the tarmac from the word GO! Avinash (Cruze) and NoRules (Optra Magnum) were not in the horizon at all on the whole of the ORR except for the halt times. The best way to keep them in vision is drive on a potholed roads

Both the Santro's were FAST! Who says Santro's are punny and city oriented cars?! And the only person I was keeping pace in the whole of the drive was S R Murthy's i10. We both were the only sedate drivers to keep the cars between 100-120kmph range. But the best looking car was the Fiesta 1.6 S in that killer blue shade. Hats off to Hill Ram for the Maruti SS 800 DX which was beautifully restored and stock! Wish I had got a chance to drive that car.

Anecdotes from Avinash and Ravikanth were keeping us entertained and help us know the "other Team-BHP members" who were not present and their experiences of previous meets.

The food and place was a very good one since it was GREEN and peaceful and moreover all of were hungry like hell and ready to pounce on any thing available. the starters lasted for not more than a minute I guess. Dhal was the best in the veg side of dishes of the main course and starters all rock!

Thanks to the whole Team and people at the restaurant to feed us such lovely food without keeping us wait for long.

Let us plan more of such meets and keep the attendance high so that more of fun and rubber burning happens.

Last but not the lease my car has reached its 46000kms mark yesterday while returning home.

One thing that some of us would have noticed while returning home was two accidents. Any details on how they happened any injuries. Have a couple of pictures of one accident involving an Innova and a Autorickshaw.

It was like ' Mr. Mallesh' had kept empty plates on the table with out no starters. Some of them were trying to find the toothpick for picking the starters but sadly before they found one toothpick the plate was empty!

It was like we could survive without the main course and only on starters.

Greetings all.

So, my new year resolution was to stop working so damned much and take time out to do things I enjoyed. As most resolutions go, it took some time for me to get into gear and here I am, having gone through this thread and deciding to join this merry gang on your next meet.

Look forward to joining you all.

Best,

G

Lets plan a meet on March 18th or March 25th both of which are sundays. Other weekends dont work for me.

I recommend we drive to Vikarabad Lake and on return retire at beautiful Jolly Wood Resort where we went last time and it was an enjoyable afternoon. And, this time we can plan in advance for an even better experience.
