I think everyone has had too much to eat and must be fast asleep now.

Had an awesome time at the farm. Food was good, as was the company.

Special highlights of the team were off-roading by Ashshy on his Thar and minor off-roading by all cars till the venue. The 2 km road leading to the farm was a slushy dirt track, and most cars could not avoid bottom scraping for a few times, but thankfully it was on dried mud and not on a rocky surface.

I hope someone will be posting pictures soon.

Edit: Special thanks to Ardy, MotoringLover, Srimath and Neilguy for flagging us off from one of the meeting points in the city.

Had a fun time yesterday at NoRules' farm. Awesome landscape, awesome food (the juicy prawns, the paneer,the fish, the desi chicken, slurp!) and awesome company thanks to the 20 odd bhpians who joined the meet. Wonderful effort put in by NoRules and his in-laws. Was a new experience offroading in the Thar and thanks to Ashish for that and Octane78 who selflessly tried to rescue the beached thar, even though we finally needed something bigger and meaner to get it out of the mess.

The highway to Nizamabad was excellent and Anurag, thanks for the drive mate, hats off to your sedate, no-nonsense driving style, in spite of the tempting roads. Was a great drive to and fro.

Great pictures there Saikat, hope you are better now. Waiting for the rest of the pictures and videos from the other folks. Meet you all next time, Cheers!

Had a superb time yesterday! Food was good, location was amazing and to top that off, Thar got a play ground for the first time. Good to meet everyone after a long time. Thanks everyone and special shout out to NoRules and his family for arranging everything, Suren181 for his guidance when I was stuck and Octane78 for being there and helping out.

I also missed the chance to drive along with you guys on that fantastic highway. I thought I would catch you guys in time while returning, but the bad roads on the Nizamabad-Nanded strech screwed everything up.

Hopefully next time

Drive Meet to Nizamabad!

We all had assembled at our respective meeting points and started off the drive from point B where many were joining and point for photo shoot, next point being near toopran where Arcot (arcot srinivas) would join us. The drive meet was flagged off by the two Skoda Octavia vRS driven by Ardy and DM (MotoringLover) and Fiesta 1.6 S by Neelesh (Neilguy). From here the next stopping point was the toll booth where we waited to catch up the Thar (Ashish) and his friend on the RE Bullet 500. This was about only 25 kms covered of the whole 175 kms trip.

From here onwards it was all safe cruising with rules being followed till the last meeting point Dichapally where Ravi (NoRules) would join us (Our Meet Organriser). The drive was scenic with good four lane highways with a few idiots who drove right in the middle of the road or on the wrong side. From Dichapally to the farm house it was a 20 kms drive of which the last leg was Off-roading for our cars except the Thar. Muddy tracks with medium sized bump, ditches which gave a few heart-attacks. The place chosen for the seating and eating was in between fields with a lot of greenery around and a tent to keep us away from the sunís heat!

The veg snacks - Paneer Tikka and pakodas; Non-veg snacks - chicken and mutton were served hot and tasted delicious. Pictures of the food were clicked prior to serving else empty plates would be seen! For lunch there was a chicken curry, Jowar roti, Rice, dhal, mixed veg curry, sambar and curd.

Prior to lunch we had some fun with the Thar and the slush that was present around in the fields. Ashish brought in the Thar and had two rounds without any problem but faced his first trap in the clay terrain where Suren (Suren181) brought him out of the clay with his superb instructions. A little while later when Ashish was a confident he took his Thar for a little more off-roading and Boy he was stuck big time. After multiple tries from him and Suren instructing and Shashidhar (Octane78) lifting up his jeans and getting down n dirty to help the Thar out we finally resorted to the Tractor (Kubato 490 4X4) driven by Raviís brother who drove well and didnít gun it. Last but not the least was Suren and his Antakshari for all of us of which I always pass it on without singing.


After the lunch we started back for Hyderabad at 4pm and stopped at the Toopran toll booth for a last picture shoot of our rides which I missed sadly and then dispersed off for our home sweet homes. Glad to meet some new faces wait to see them on Team-BHP forum. Drive back was peaceful with all our stomachís full and waiting to pounce on the beds.

Finally big thanks to Ravikanth (NoRules) and his family members for organizing the meet and arranging all the requirements on time without having an issue. Another applaud for Jayagopal (Jayded) who was my co-driver during the whole drive bearing my sedate driving and answering all my questions about Figo and Figo v/s Ritz.

Who all have clicked pictures with their respective cameras please upload them soon.

Cheers,
Anurag.

It was a fantastic drive meet and loved driving the RD's Cruze immensely on the glorious twisting and turning highway. It was almost like an RD test drive for me.

The place was perfect for offroading enthusiasts and not for poor sedan guys like us. But, the location was nice irrespective of the bad roads leading to it

Food was nice and I liked only one dish which was Prawns and i have to admit that was the best prawns i tasted till date. I didnt quite enjoy the other food items as they were mind numbingly spicy. Special shout out to Norules for organizing the lunch and Jayded to come all the way from Bangalore in a bus just to attend this drive meet. Kudos !!!

Anurag, thats a wonderful meet report and you have covered the details in fine detail. Thanks!

Here are a few pictures that I took with my humble P&S
