RS Sir, I felt bad missing out on the Ooty drive. I want to definitely try and make this one. But like I said, my Goa drive is on next week. So will have to check with the home front to plan on this one. Hopefully, I can make it with my family.

KarthikK / nkrishnap : To clarify:

Both roads enter the same forest from different directions and follow their different routes, respectively.

Chikmagalur-Aldur route leads to BHADRA RIVER CAMP which "is closed and is not in operation anymore." [ http://www.bhadrarivercamp.com/Home ].
and is distinct from River Tern Lodge both location-wise and management-wise.

RS sir, I'm guessing they're already sold out for that day. I tried their online reservation system now and the only available accommodation for 26/27 weekend was Officer's cottage, for which if I enter no. of persons = 1, it says there should be more than 1 person in the room. What do they want me to do? Get married soon just to be able to stay in JLR??

For loghut and cottage options, it shows "post enquiries" instead of "book now", meaning those have already been booked out by other customers. Cross verified this - If I alter the date to something later, it shows the "book now" button properly.

Should we change the location to another JLR?? Just wondering...

Visited JLR office, this evening, to block off rooms for 26/27 Oct.,'13 and you're right, they are indeed sold out. That apart, tariff on that date is now Rs.5,300/- per person on twin sharing basis.

As discussed with you and also with Diesel_Convert, the meet stands postponed to the weekend 9/10 Nov.,'13 as dictated by the availability of accomodation.

Consequently, I have blocked 15 double rooms and this is valid only till 6 Oct.,'13. On this date, I will consolidate the confirmed responses and book accordingly.

Beyond this date, accomodation will be subject to availability and subsequent respondents can book online/at JLR office in Khanija Bhavan, Race Course Road.

Therefore abandoning the online booking mode advised and requesting fresh "aye-ayes" of your confirmed participation to the new list below.

KK, am not in favour of a change as both destination and drive route promises much .

Confirmed:

1. RSUDARSANAN +2

Unfortunately, the new dates (Nov 9-10) don't work for me. The earlier dates (Oct 26-27) were perfect for me, but unfortunately, the new dates are tough.

I have some personal as well as official travels in November, and it will be hard to squeeze in this weekend trip. So I will have to give it a miss. Sorry about this guys.

I would have really loved to join you guys, and was really excited about it. Anyways, there is always a next time. I will try my best to join the next overnighter.

All the best for your trip. I am sure you guys will have a lot of fun :-)

True, but the solace is that I'm driving the same route this weekend enroute Goa!

But I would still miss the company and the meet! :(
