Punekars, let's meet at 6.30 near Sadanand. We will be off to Pawana by 6.45.
I suggest we PM our mobile numbers to some one who is not driving. He will be in a better position to co-ordinate.

I don't know if we should take old highway or express way.
Let the convoy be led by someone knowing the road to Pawna.

Hello everyone, just have a few questions:
1. Once leaving from McDonalds Panvel, are we gonna stick to the 80kph speed limit on the expressway or do more?
2. In case someone wants to fill fuel, are we stopping at the food court after the toll plaza?
3. How do we split the cost for breakfast?

Please refer this invaluable thread (How to have a successful and enjoyable meet) by the late incomparable Sam Kapasi. It will answer all your questions and help make the meet truly enjoyable.

I have always taken the old Pune-Mumbai highway and turned off at Kamshet to Pawananagar and thence to the lake. However this may not be the most direct route. Google maps shows the simplest route as taking the e-way to Lonavala and then exiting and finding your way to the lake. However when going to Sunny's, the best way would be the Pawananagar-Kamshet road, which is very pretty incidentally.

I think there won't be time to refuel en rout to Pawna lake. Best to fill up today. In case one does need to halt, he would reach late as not all cars can stop.

As for following the speed limit, I guess it goes without saying, but Yes please follow the speed limit.

To reach McDonalds by 6:30 is going to be quite a task. It takes almost an hour for me to reach there. So, 5:30 am is when i have to leave from home.

I will be starting from 5 Gardens, Matunga; continuing on the Eastern Express highway till Mankhurd; then left, on to the Vashi bridge road.

Any one willing to join me is welcome.

I will join you guys directly at the breakfast point by 8.30-9.00AM. But most probably we will not be able to make it to Sunny's; so we will leave the Pawana dam resort when everyone leaves for lunch. I am all set now for tomorrows meet.

1) Even though one should strictly adhere to the highway rules, IMHO we should maintain 100-110kmph. No more than that.
2) That would be inconvenient for those who don't require a refill. I suggest everyone tank up before meeting up at McD's. Early morning = denser fuel = more fuel!
3) That......is what I'm worried about too.

If there's even a vague possibility that you could attend, please do. I would definitely want to meet a fellow Dombivlikar!
