Thanks SDP. I actually thought tonight there would be a zombie drive and was looking forward to it as i missed it the last time. Nonetheless will see you guys outside the school or K3 depending on the traffic on JVLR.

Powai mini-meet on 30th Aug 2013

Kiran was the first to reach the meeting place. I reached around 7pm. A few minutes later a young college guy approached us and asked if we are from team-bhp. That was Aman (amansanc). Some 10 minutes later even YogeshNagpal and Varun (VVB8530) also turned up.

zen_rally_sport was expected in green Figo, but I guess he got tied up with something at the last moment.

That's it. Good meet as always!

PS: Seems like the 'Zombie Drive' idea is liked by quite a few folks. As per Swapnil's suggestion from last meet, there is a good case for doing the night drives a regular affair...may be once a month.

Thank you SDP for the reminder.

As I was busy in shifting my home, I could not attend the regular meet. Hope the meet was good.

You are not the only one. I work till 10.30PM and have only once attended the Friday Meet (had to bunk office and left early). Before that i did a splash & dash just to meet our gang.

Cant do these always. Waiting for more on the next Zombie Drive.

Default Kaas : Drive + meet

Guys,
Here's a suggestion for the next drive+meet:

Date: 15th Sep 2013 (Sunday)
Place: Kaas, Satara
Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-kaas.jpg

Detailed photologs:
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...y-flowers.html (Kaas - The Valley of Flowers)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...sterpiece.html (Kaas - God's own masterpiece!)

Tentative plan:
1. Start early morning (4:30am) from Mumbai-outskirts.
2. Reach Satara by 7:30-8:00am. Breakfast on NH4 (Shriram best wadapav center).
3. Reach Kaas by 9:00am.
4. Explore the plateau, enjoy the variety of flowers till 12noon.
5. Head to Bamnoli for lunch.
6. Do either Thoseghar waterfall + Chalkewadi OR Sajjangad till 5pm.
7. Start return journey at 5pm. Be in Mumbai by 10-10:30pm.

Alternate plan:
Zombie drive on Saturday night . Reaching Kaas early morning to witness sunrise. (Bath and other morning formalities would be an issue in this plan.)

What do you guys say?

Aha! And I was thinking the same to suggest in watsapp .

SDP, if we leave around 1AM from Mumbai, we can reach Kaas by 5-5.30AM and catch sunrise also. So this will include zombie drive along e-way and NH4. With this we can include Thoseghar, Sajjangad and Chalkewadi. Else it would be little hectic to include all.

But not sure how many would be ready to drive all night .

Guys - Can we try and plan the weekend after 15th?

The reason being its Ganpati season and I believe most of us would have relative to visit for ganpati.

And, 15th is the 7th day Visarjan too.

Not sure when the flowering season ends?


Thanks,
Yogesh.

Sounds interesting BUT Hectic! The pictures are are too good to resist though. Have heard a lot (and now seen) about this place from friends.

I think i will be able to pull off the day drive. Not sure about the zombie waala plan.

Can we look at teaming up wherever possible, so that we have at least 2 drivers in each car?
