Holy Cow! 16 hours? I guess bus ride via ghats on a stormy night was a bad idea then. I wanted to ask how was the sleeper coach experience, but this is something else.

Well the sleeper coach journey by itself is perfectly fine if its an overnighter.. Got into the bus at 1030 and hit the bed.. when I woke up at 7AM, Sakleshpur was 30KM away !! Felt like I was in a time warp.. The painful part was then spending 6 hours in a berth with 2.5 feet headroom on it..

28th May - Well after having crashed at 2 am , lost all track of how , where, when ,etc !! I just remembered Amitoj, Psycho, Mrs.Amitoj and myself went to the beach after dinner as ppl didn't leave any for me and Psycho so off we went to eat bread-omlette ( Psycho ) and Shawarmas ( myself & Amitoj ) . While we were eating the sound of the waves on the beach hit our ears and of to the beach for a quiet self time session .

Woke up in the morning .... as usual had the free b'fast and then thought we mite as well go and see if we cud grab a couple of t-shirts for ourselves ( most of the shops were closed so didnt think we stood much of a chance ) . Steeroid mean while went of to Vasco to catch up with family I think and on the return escort nitinbagh from the airport to the resort . Nitin flew in from Delhi .... and was to land at 1 pm.

So minus Steeroid the rest headed to Calangut Beach ... window shopped , bought a few tee's fo rmyself , others bought as well but dunno how many . All this while we were co-ordinating with Samurai who was headed to Goa and as it was his first time was trying to navigate on the phone ... I think I did a ok job as the next thing we knew he was flying past us -- he didnt notice us standing on the side and us waving out to him. Finally he turned around .. we met up .. another member ( moderator ) joins in and we are glad that ppl still making an effort !!

Now Mclaren was parked in this super huge ground and he cudnt resist trying to show off his hand brake skills .... islero his chief photographer .... and I'm sitting in the jeep and thinking ..mmmmm !! But 2 mins later I was shunted from my spot behind the jeeps wheel and I turned around and noticed that the Baleno was parked with its drivers door open and keys in teh ignotion ... IT WAS INVITING,SEDUCING , dunno wat else and I cudn't resist ( sorry ,mclaren ) and in I jumped . All loaded and ready to head back to the hotel where the Bombay guys are waiting for us ...... Hit the self , and suddenly I dunno what kind of force or alien force or god knows wat force took me over and instead of heading to the road I too like mclaren throttled into the field to teach him how donuts are done .

I cud see quiet a few shocked faces all around .. it was broad daylight and the entire public just stopped to stare so I quit and vanished towards the hotel .. Dunno how many spins we did !!!! Back to the resort where the bombay guys wwere waiting for us ... grabbed a few beers, vodkas and back into the pool . The Bombay boys also joined in ... so finally this session was a glimpse of what shud have happened on all days . Next time ..stricter rules I guess . Meanwhile drifter who seems to have an amazing appetite again was hungry ... so lunch was ordered , though a few of the Bombay guys again vanished to eat lunch someplace else .. So we were in the pool creating havoc ..few broken glasses , bottles later Steeroid and Nitinbagh join us .

Jokes, alcohol, water , frisbee, mango , and God nly knows what else flew around in that 2 hr session ... but it was great fun and NC busy with his candid photography ( we still waiting to see those pics ) used fever as a gud excuse not to join us in the pool . Drifter was too hungry and busy hounding the waiter to hurry up with the food so he too didnt join in . Some guys didn't join in initially but after a few vodkas in .. clothes flew off and they flew into the pool ... .. Alcohol is such an amazing thing at times !!! Finally it was time for lunch ... also it was decided that today was the karting c'ship day and the Bangy guys were really raring to go . Lots of prayers happened for the rain to stay away as the black clouds did start to roll in and it seemed karting was doomed . For those of u wondering why didnt we just go in the morn instead of waiting for the eve and the rain --- COZ IT OPENED ONLY AT 4 pm ...

Lunch over .. piled into the cars after a small photo session .. Steeroid and Mclaren pushed of to the track to check it out ... rest followed a while later !!! When we reached there Mclaren says the karts are kinda slow and not much fun .. now these guys r pro karting champs so I thought ooops but then wat the heck we wanna have fun and if we want we can have it in bullock carts so wat . Went in .. the first group headed out .. I didn't go as I wanted to see the racing lines and stuff coz I have no racing lines .. I use the lines that are known as drift lines and boy these guys were flying around the track with no squeeling of tyres happening, no rear end coming sliding out and doing some hot laps . Now this was fascinating for me and I was trying to memorise the lines these guys were using .... coz I didnt wanna be made a fool of . ..

First batch finishes and jumps out .. we jump in and it starts to drizzle ... ... under the helmet I pray harder that the rain gets even harder and GUESS WHAT -- he heard me -- It started to pour and that was the beginning of the ACTUAL FUN . . . Poor pros with their racing lines suddenly started finding themselves sideways most of teh time ... spin after spin after spin ..hehehe e!!! I wasted time in remembering racing lines coz I SURE AS HELL DIDNT NEED THEM NO MORE ... and then there it was .. HELL breaks out .. every guy wants to go again and again and again ! Karts conking of ... and more karts conking of ... and still more karts conking of !!! Totally drenched but still wanting to be on the track ... it was hilarious . But I guess this was the 1st Drift C'ship in India .... I had a blast coz I prefer it sideways anyday !! The only sad part was that I messed up a very gud tee shirt of mine and I get emotional if anything happens to my tee's .

Finally back to the hotel for a quick shower and out to dinner . Brittos again refused to give us seats ( their loss ) and next thing we know is that we are at Mambo's !!! Sex on the Beach ruled the nite ... Nitrous and Islero knocking them down with a vengeance .. KF as usual doing the rounds ( its like starters for some ) , Rum-Cola , Feni ,etc ... Finally we ended up with women around us and there were the married men ( Steeroid,psycho, Amitoj, Samurai, Myself -- dunno about nitin ) and the Rocking bachelors ( nitrous, jay, islero, and mclaren ) .... but soon it tured out the other way round ..MARRIED BACHELORS and ROCKING MEN !!! We need to give the bachelors tips on things besides cars ...

Anyways all in all it was a BLAST again . some bhpians classifie me as smashed after just 2 pints , some bhpians got showed the middle finger by some woman , some bhpians were busy cruising thru the crowd lending support to women who were falling , etc . 3 am, plenty of alcohol down, food finished, stomachs growling so someone wanted to go eat at Aguada . Bad navigation lead to 2 cars starting way before us and reaching way after us only to discover that Aguada has no 24 hr coffee shop . Turned around and suddenly Mrs Amitoj decided she wud like donuts so changed cars with mclaren and of for donuts . Few donuts later we found a eating joint .. had food ..reached hotel at 4am or was it 5 am ... help me here !!

End of Day 3 or was it 4 ..3 I think !!! No clue what day it was ...

Met samurai & nitinbagh

Highlights of the Day -- Seeing the HUGE SMILEs on the wives faces when we finally took them shopping and they got to burn cash . Shopping for tee's , I luv buying tee shirts , infact I can open a tee shirt shop from home anyday . Donuts and more donuts in the Baleno . Pool session with the Bombay gang . DRIFTING C"SHIP and whipping the pro boys .

ALCOHOL CONSUMED ... NO COUNT AT ALL

Cheers

PS -- Mods, I'm sorry I forgot the smiley limitation but pls forgive us for this thread !! Thanx

that night i too was doing a bus journey on the same route ...my b7r reached managlore at 130 am instead of 11pm .....and then when i woke up in the morning at 7 am ...i was about 15 kms from sakleshpur instead of 15 kms from bengalooru ...

now that gives me a genuine reason to avoid bus journey and take the car instead

Ok, I can't make out whether you were coming from or going to Bangalore. I also can't make out whether it was day bus or night bus. You didn't even come to Goa, are you getting high just reading the reports?

You beat me to that. Yes it HAS to have a bar, else no self-respecting TBHPian will ever set foot on your farm.

It will also have to be about 10 minutes away from Mambo's just in case we get bored.

He can also double up as a mattress in case someone falls asleep - thats if the mattress itself isnt asleep. How come you missed out Nitrous and Islero having Safe Sex on the Beach?

Before anybody's imagination goes wild, Safe Sex on the Beach is a mocktail on Mambos menu . Both Nitrous and Islero are teetotallers.
