Hope everyone has reached home without much issues.
I faced crazy traffic on Eastern Express Highway due to rains and nothing else.

Just reached home!

Eagleeye and me followed the Gypsy, went off roading through the Aarey Colony Roads.
Luckily no traffic on the western express highway.

Nice to meet you all. My first meet and really enjoyed it

Reached at 10. Took the same Kailash complex route. Horrible but atleast there was no traffic.

Sorry guys for not being able to join in today.

I was in Powai area only since 6pm.

After checking out our new office at Powai Plaza, we got into Tiara and spent the evening there.

I guess I'll join in after 2 weeks now.



Cheers,
Yogesh.

I am unable to make it to any meets :(

My life has gone for a toss as I also do not know what I am going to do tomorrow. Please do quote me in future too so I get a reminder.

Pics for 3rd Mini-meet : 19th July 2013

It was an overcast day since morning and I was sincerely hoping that it remains that way till the end. Incidently it had started to drizzle from 6pm. Around 6:30ish, EagleEye posted on the thread that his blue Laura has already reached the meeting place. I was in touch with Jignesh, Dodge_Viper and Swapszone and they had started or were about to start. I reached just before 7pm. Sa_Kiran reached a few seconds earlier. A minute later a stickered i10 also stopped. It was Dodge_Viper.
In next 5 minutes, the umbrella-meet was On...me, Jignesh, EagleEye, sa-Kiran and Dodge_Viper. We made a few calls to figure out if the others are joining. As we started walking towards K3 for tea, Desmo joined in his Gypsy! After a little bit of coordination on calls and what's-app, siddarthdeb and swapszone also made it to the venue.

engrohit and ghodlur had opted out because of prior commitments.

Luckily K3 provided the protection from rain.

Have to process some 800 odd photos from the Ratnagiri trip I did 4 weeks back. Some of them would end up on a thread here soon. That's the plan for tomorrow. So didn't want today's snaps to add to the backlog.

Awesome time. Great fun to bunk office and attend the meet. Always fun to meet like minded auto freaks.

Wife asked what you did from 7pm till 9pm. I said that we were standing at one place and chatting. :-)

The snaps have come out really well. I hope the laura and city didn't scrape their bellies on the aarey road.

I am not in for the malshej drive but would be in for the next one.

@SDP... Nice pics. And yes, that was my lunch for the day

@Eagleeye... The monsoon drive would be up by tonite. And nice clicks!

@Desmo... The roads were not too bad. The new city could manage just fine coz of a slightly better ground clearance.

Sorry guys, had to bail out again (3rd time, yes I am keeping track), but I cross post my reason from elsewhere...

Spent the better part of the evening in an instructive session with the Executive Director of a Navaratna PSU in Mumbai learning the intricacies and nuances of the English language as well as understanding the hidden meanings in between the lines in Gartner reports.
Maybe, it was time well spent, but now, I might be at work for the next two weekends. Haven't got a clue when I will be able to catch up with all of you.

Hello All,

Nice meet once again. Good to meet some new & old friends. This was really a mini-meet with 9 - 10 people joining in.

Thank you Eagle eye for the pictures, once again.

A big thank you to SDP for processing & posting these photos at 23:57 pm yesterday. Hope your family is not irritated due to your dedication towards your car & T-BHP.

Thanks,
