Infact I am praying it does not rain for atleast couple of days before 16th.

I did not see Ravvs name in the confirmed list. Ravvs, this is your kind of food. You have to come.
How can we miss the awesome menu you will have for all why is it not coming up for discussion here?

Hahaha

The menu will obviously feature the famous Ankapoor desi chicken. Mutton delicacies and fish will be there and if we are lucky (The water is released @ Kadem reservoir, hence getting prawns is difficult) then fresh tiger prawns as well.

Once we have the final tally will speak to my cousin and arrange for everything.

I am surprised at the lack of enthusiasm and this is dampening my enthu as well. It is going to take lot of effort from my cousin and FIL to make this a success and I initially projected a big number of attendees :-(

Meri ijjat ka sawaal hai.

Yeah, it's kind of disappointing that the already scarce driving enthusiasts population is decreasing even more.

I have a gut feeling everyone is doing math of how much that lost distance trip would cost and not joining up. Come on guys, we dont do such long distance drive so often. It's usually once a year. Like we do Nagarjunsagar once a year.

By Thursday if we dont get encouraging responses then its best to move to a shorter distance like Shamirpet for a drive then lunch in Rajinder Dhaba

If that also doesnt get any takers. It's best to chuck the whole idea

Most of us are driving a diesel so the costs must not be too high

If costs be the problem the every car has 4 seats we can car pool and do it. costs are not that important as such long distances are not done frequent.

ORR drives are monotonous and boring as only the powerful buddies enjoy and the rest lug behind

Lets see what time has got in for us.

Come on Hyderabad members get that count chart on fire.

I would suggest sending a PM each to all the hydeez bhp-ians and requesting a response before EOD tomorrow so that NoRules get enough time to plan it out. If nothing gets finalized at least by Thursday night, unfortunately I too would have to drop out since I have to book my to and fro tickets from B'lore.

Hope it works out.

Now this is the kind of enthusiasm we need. Jay is willing to travel from Bangalore to Hyderabad, attend the drive meet and get back to Bangalore same night.

Thursday EOD it is because my folks back home need to procure things and make arrangements at the farm for us to have a fun time. Considering it is monsson period, it is going to be really nice out there.

Guys,

My plan for sunday was already on the cards. I am travelling on the same route but a little early on Sunday itself. I am going to Nanded via Nizamabad but will leave my place around 5:30-6 in the morning.

If the lazy side of me is able to conquer my mind, we might cross paths . If I join you guys, I will drive with you all till Nizamabad and the head off to Nanded. What time is the return planned from Nizamabad ?

I am tentative for now.

Hi!

I can't make it this time as I'm not in Hyderabad. I would have loved to join the group though.

I will look forward to the pics posted to the thread after the event.

Thats a great idea. How about each confirmed participant send minimum 5 PM's to other Hydeez they know offline/online and should get atleast 1 confirmed participant from their end. Like the idea?

Btw, kudos to you travelling to Hyderabad just for this drive.

We plan to leave first meeting point at sharp 8am. And, start our return from Nizambad no later than 3:30pm so as to reach Hyderabad by 6pm.
