Only if I would have known about it.
I was alone at home with wifey and kid out of town and was getting bored doing "nothing"!.

I hope I come to know the next time and make it too.

Went through the same agony when I missed the initial 3 drives.

Make sure you follow this thread for updates. Safe to assume, the next Zombie drive is a good month, or maybe more away now.

Cheers!

Zombie Drive - Saturday night - 1st Mar 2014 (and early morning 2nd Mar)

Although lot of us love the zombie-drive format of the meet, somehow one did not happen for ages. Then with a really short notice, one clicked a week back.

We were supposed to meet at Reclamation at 11pm. I started horribly late, picked up minimalist from Powai and was joined by Shenoy brothers in their Zukie. We did go through the new terminal at the airport and experienced the new SAR road. To avoid the jam due to flyover work on WEH, Akshay (minimalist) took us through Bandra internal roads. Me as well as Aditya were completely lost by the end of it.

By the time we reached, it was past 11:30pm and everybody was just rearing to go. Stopped just to say a quick hi to a few.

PlatzaTurbo's A4. Dippy was riding shotgun with him.

We moved to the next building, but this drunkard (the one on the left) was hell-bent on extracting some money from us and slept on the road just to block our perfect line-up. VVB tried to reason with him, but we asked him to let go. We somehow squeezed all cars in the remaining space.

We dispersed around 2:30am. A few of us came back via the Eastern Freeway which was completely empty at that hour.

Here's the last pic.. when we stopped towards the end of the freeway. That's cartman almost hanging out of his car, a sight which is not really rare.

Powai Mini-Meet on 7th Mar 2013:

Yogesh had hinted about a big surprise in the next meet and all of us were eager to find out.

When I reached and parked, found nobody around.

Then an Accord pulled over with a lot of familiar faces inside. So that was the surprise. Yogesh got an Accord!

Thanks for the report and pics Sanjay. To my bad luck, how much ever I tried, and even after strong persuasion by Aman and Varun, I still missed the Zombie Drive.

Hope I can make it for the next one. I guess I'll only have to plan one soon.

Nice stuff! I'll have to keep an eye on this thread for upcoming meets, especially Powai ones!

Off topic: how'd you guys like Papa Johns? I found them to be quite ordinary ages ago and have stayed away ever since.

Bicycle ride to 'town' - Sunday 9th Mar 2014

After the SGNP bicycle ride, we hadn't done a longish ride together. Did exactly that today morning. Dodge_Viper, AdiShenoy, SiddarthDeb, Sa_Kiran, minimalist, SDP and a couple of friends. Rode from Thane/Mulund to Gateway of India and then to Kyani near Metro. Cartman and PlatzaTurbo joined by car directly at Kyani.

Here are some pics from the day:

Started at 5:20am from Mulund.
6:15am: First break at Priyadarshni.

Hmmm ...Kyani and Co. Long time since I had their mutton patties. Looking at all the biking shots reminded of the Himalayan momuntain biking expidition I am going to miss this year.
Being a relatively new member here, I hope to join these meets sometime soon with my friend Accius.
