Yes, the drive to topstation is simply awesome. However, with our one day planb, I aint sure whether we would be able to squeeze in Topstation and then return back to Munnar before % PM to start our return journey

Perfectly laid out plan naveen.raju.
However, I would suggest that we meet up in fron of the Audi showroom towards Kundannorr from vyttila or in front of reliance petrol pump towards Petta from Vyttila

This is perfect Naveen. Thanks.

Since drive is on 19th which is Saturday, I shall join the convoy from Oonukal which is about 10KMs after Kothamangalam on the way to Adimali. So that I can also start at the same time you guys do.

This time I am joining the Ford league on my Fusion and let our tallest man EcoSport follow me

My wife is not aware of any plans and is going to get a real surprise while meeting the convoy .

Good to see numbers increasing.
Please PM me your number so that we can keep you updated.

Also confirm your joining sooner so that bookings for accomodation can be made.
We have already booked for six rooms.
We need to be informed if more rooms have to be booked.

Looking forward to meeting you

Looking forward to meeting all of you on a drive again.
The memories of the Marari drive is still fresh in mind and I do hope this becomes as huge a success as the earlier one. If not, better!!

Any new member who is interested to join the drive is whole heartedly welcome. Please pipe up soon so that arrangements for accomodation is made.

Additionally, all members are requested to go through this thread prior taking on the drive. Not that we doubt any of your driving skills, But still a refresher on the basic things to be kept in mind.
It is better to be safe than be sorry

Special thanks to GTO for compiling this great article.

I was so so looking forward to the next meet but having taken quite a few days off from office this month I will not be able to make it to this trip as well. Also have a wedding function from my wife's side on 19th which I have already declared as a no show to my wife and father in law, so even if i somehow wriggle out of office it wont look very pretty when i'm in Munnar!!

Reading Dhanush Menon's travelogue to Munnar yesterday with those awesome snaps makes me feel like I need to go to Munnar immediately with a camera!!

Wishing you all a happy trip and looking forward to seeing the snaps!!

Well... this is indeed a great chance to give your camera a feast.
Make up some excuse in the office and tell at home that you are going to the office.
