Vaisakhr has proven his skills again, lovely snaps there. Others are not behind too. A4 is no doubt a welcomed guest

Me feeling for missing it but can't help.

wow...

Jaw dropping pics Vaisakhr.
Especially the mist covered Ecosport and the wiper/ windshield pic just after that.

As I was sad and heartbroken that I couldnt make it to the drive on saturday, me along with my good wife and kids on tow, went to visit Parunthumpara on Sunday.

As I was walking along the barricaded walk way, I saw a singular white car on a nice back drop.
For a second, I wished that the car was mine and the backdrop could've given a nice shot of the car.

And going through the pics, look who I found as the owner of the car was: MICROAUBIN!!!

We were so close by each other and we missed meeting! That was so sad!!

was a wonderful meet. Was caught up in work for the last 2 days but I was seening all the pics.

Wonderful pics bigbrad and vaisakh. Awesome you guys.
I did not really like the star trail one but the sunrise pic was awesome.

It was a great outing and drive through the KK road was mind blowing. I managed 17.84 kmpl guys. Guess that was the best of all.

The sunday that was spent simply 'lambing' around was so much fun... I cant remember the time when I could just sit and have fun.. hazards of having to make a living

So that brings me to the question
When is the next drive ?

And did you just call revintup' City a 90? So did the Honda loose some horses along with the lift of the needle?
Well he was driving like that

Oh so close!!! Is your XUV PY registration by any chance? As I went back, I noticed one with T-bhp sticker on the rear.Also told my wife that this bhpian probably didn't know there was a meet happening in kuttikanam.

Never imagined it would be you!!!

Last two days have been really crazy at office. I have been waiting for a long time to come to a meet though I have been following this thread and seeing all the pics on it.

Since the Saturday being the first of the month I couldn't make it for the drive. Sunday looked bleak though but I decided to take a chance and try to meet the bhpians.

A big thank you to all the bhpians who were there who made us feel so welcome. Special mention of thanks to the ladies too who gave my wife good company.

Even though we were there for only a couple of hours, we really enjoyed this wonderful opportunity.

Enjoying the awesome pictures and looking forward to the next meet!!

Happy to note that all of you had a nice outing.
As usual, the pictures by Vaisakh are superlative.
These two pics gives an impression that you were on a trip to Leh.

Same here. Never imagined a bhpian from the nearby meet would drift onto parunthumpara.
Moreso because, as per the initial plans, they were supposed to have visited parunthumpara on Saturday evening and leave kuttikkanam by around 1400.

Therefore, when I crossed kuttikkanam at 1615, little did I know that these guys were still loitering around near by

Nice pics @Vaisakhr. Always wanted to join such a ride, but missing the opportunity. I will also try to join for the next event if I am in kerala, even though my ride is now shifted to Pune :(

Great snaps guys. You should have spun this off as a separate thread in the travelogue section

Uploading some pics from my phone.

IIRC, the following great shots were taken by BigBrad. Please excuse the quality as I got them through WApp.

Love this shot. Not least because its Kungipalu.
Team-BHP Meet & Drive - Kochi-12.jpg

No idea who took this wonderful panoramic shot by the brilliant KK road at Mundakayam.

The rest were taken by me on my Lumia.

No money for Bilstein to lower the car? No problem! Fellow BHPians can help you get the desired height as demonstrated here by vaisakhr' Swift.

deetjohn, That panorama shot at KK road was clicked on my Lumia. Was just testing my panorama shooting skills. I am still learning, and a million thanks for the compliment, didn't realise it was pretty good until you uploaded it here and I had a good look. Duh!! I am such a lazy guy to switch on the PC and,upload my pics. Thanks again.

My perspective on the drive,
In one word, Wonderful!!! This was my first drive meet and I never expected such a warm welcome from you guys. You guys are simply awesome. I had a really really nice time 'lambing' around with you all. I felt there was more to this than it being just a drive meet. Naveen.raju, speed.demon, mistakenguy,vaisakhr, figo mba, revintup all you guys and your lovely family. I will remember this for a long time. Hats off!!!

A special mention needs to be made about fellow bhp ian microaubin who joined us at the resort for lunch. Thanks a lot for joining us, it was simply a pleasure meeting you and your family. Hoping to see you again at the next meet. And man!!! I couldn't stop ogling at your A4. Wonderful drive there. Keep her shining just like that and drive safe. Cheers!!!

PS : All of us missed dhanush menon didn't we ? Hope you join for the next drive.
