Excellent Pictures there Manoj. I reckon your the only one who captured the pictures while moving which was pretty thoughtful of you

Hope you enjoyed the drive meet and keep in touch.

So what are the plans/ideas for the next drive meet?

Being lost in the company of BHPians is just as fun when you're tearing up the tarmac. BTW, if you've got a fancy Nokia, you can get the Ovi maps for it - I used it to find my away after getting lost from the ORR exit at Gachibowli.

Mobike suggested the following locations for the next drive meet: Srisailam/Nagarjunsagar/Medak Church

Srisailam is over 200km South from Hyderabad and while you are heading out there, you will come across a place called Nizamabad, not to be confused with the Nizamabad district that is North of Hyderabad.

Nagarjuna sagar is about 150km to the South-East of Hyderabad and is popular for a dam that provides irrigation and electricity. From there, if you go further toward Macherla, you could visit Ethipothala falls.

Medak is the closest at about 100 km. If this is the destination, I am guessing that the plan is to head out on NH7/NH44 till Toopran or Ramayampet and branch off onto the road that heads toward Medak. BTW, there's a tollgate-bypass road near Toopran that folks can try out if they have a 4x4 (though it's unlikely anyone would get stuck).

I would love a Srisailam drive in monsoons. Even though its a bit hectic for a day trip, we should plan it soon.

Anyways, Iam travelling to Canada today and can join only on my return.

So let the planning discussion continue.....

Lets go to Nizamabad. It is 175 kms away, fantastic road, hardly any traffic, have a beautiful farm there where I can arrange the famed 'ANKAPOOR' desi chicken and other delicacies.

If we are able to confirm the numbers and all are coming +1 then we can actually plan a 2 day trip where we start on saturday head to Nagarjuna sagar, ease out and freak out in Haritha Restort on saturday night, start from there on Sunday early morning and if someone knows any of the forest guys then take a trip inside the forest, Visit Srisailam and back to hyderabad in the night after having dinner in one of the Dhabas.

Just a suggestion, not many may agree.....

The road is pretty good till Kamareddy. Beyond Kamareddy, it's under construction. I'm assuming you mean the Nizamabad district that is North of Hyderabad and not the other Nizamabad that is toward the South.

The forest bit sounds nice.

I just located the tail hook (more of a loop than a hook) on my Esteem today so I know someone can pull me out of wet mud backward if I do get stuck.

I did not know of the other Nizamabad. The road between Kamareddy and Dichpally is mostly ready except for small stretches where you have diversions. Been over a month I traveled on that road. Will find out more details from my family members coming over from Nirmal tomorrow.

Do you remember that small stretch of road that goes over a 'flyover' some distance after Bowenpally and has railings on the side? It was a 2-lane dual-carriage road last month. Today, I saw that it is 2-lane single-carriage for each way. I wonder if the elections had any part to play in its creation If it did, may we have elections everyday!
I guess we have a complete single-carriage road till Kamareddy now.

The roads with diversions are difficult to travel over at night - my tyres don't have any grip on those roads near the diversion signs probably because of the loose gravel and those diversion signs are difficult to see at night. I should probably look for a pod to hold the rally-style headlights or get an Indian-style holder fitted onto the grille of my bonnet. The dual-carriage traffic doesn't help either with the crazy drivers charging from the wrong side of the road - it makes me wonder if I should invest in a heavy bullbar because I doubt the passenger cage on an Esteem will hold up to a head-on collision with a Bolero or a Scorpio at speeds in excess of 120 km/hr (the on-coming traffic is usually at a high speed).

hello NAWABIs
been away from the forum for a good 7-8 months i guess due to work and other personal things and looking at the pictures i do sense what i've been missing...

btw, i'm gonna go on a week long trip next week: Hyd-Vizag-Bhemili-Tyda-Anantagiri-Araku-Uppada-Kakinada-Dindi-Hyd (Uppada and kakinada are just via points, no stays there)

if there are any plans for a drive meet around 3rd-4th weeks of August, I will try to meet

also, i've sold my shaky (alias waggie alias wagon-r) and got a used ritz vxi (16,200 on the odo) so i'm itching to begin my Ritz moments soon

Want my first meet up as a BHPian with the Hyderabadis.
With Haleem Season kick starting on 19th, lets have the first Haleem Meet on 19th itself. We have many options like Sarvi, Shaghouse and etc. Based on our Locations, lets plan for a central location like Shaghouse Tolichowki for instance. Can do a Haleem + Biryani Meet, ending with delicious Phirni/Rabdi.

21Archer84, where are you put up as of now?

Guys, Confirmations please. I am confirmed with FleetMaster & Sai Kumar (non-TBHPian). Please add your names to the confirmed list.
