I am not good at writing travelogues, hence I will let others do the honours. Also, i have only few as I had more fun behind the wheel than behind the cam. Anyways,

Let the fun begin-

What a drive! I think the best part of the trip was the midnight drive from chamrajnagar to kanakpura road. Empty roads, full moon shining on the ribbon of tar and 21 tail lamps flashing red. What a sight it was to watch the convoy wind its way through the NH with grey trees giving silent salute to the speeding devils! Sudarsanan sir thanks a lot for managing the drive. Lookin g forward to the next meet

I tried hard to atleast be a last minute addition making my own lodging arrangements (Had informed this to KarthikK) but I couldn't manage
I so wanted to be a part of this meet, but as a responsible guy I had to fulfil my family duties.
Anyways one day I'll visit this beach for sure!

Now I know salt on a wound really hurts...preparing myself for more salt
Looking forward to more good photos.

Sheer perfection in plan/execution. Thanks Ravi Sudarsanan. Thanks Karthik/ Jayanth for looking into minute details. What was amazing is the "Team-Work" that everybody shares quite naturally, what with my Bolero faking trouble (thanks to water getting at the sensors in the Beach Drive) to getting the engine up and running, wasting two hours in the meanwhile and all stood with me. Special thanks to Sandeep as well. Awesome fun, drive, stay, food et al.

Prologue:

Feb 2014, Turf meets Surf! 10th Anniversary Drive Report-k-drive.jpg

Where do I begin
To tell the story of how enchanting a drive can be
The sweet love story that is older than the sea
The simple truth about the exhilaration a drive brings to me
Where do I start

A drive fills my heart with very special things
With angels' songs , with wild imaginings
A drive fills my soul with so much love
That everywhere I go I'm never lonely
With a drive, who could be lonely
I reach for the steering-it's always there

How long does it last
Can a drive be measured by the hours in a day
I have no answers now but this much I can say
I know I'll need another drive till the stars all burn away
And the tarmac is always there


Apologies to Andy Williams
Words-smith: yours truly

I am really feeling very bad for missing this opportunity. I would definitely be part of the drive next time whatever the situation might be.

@RSUDARSANAN: Request you to include me in the next meet, this would be my advance booking

And would love to see more pics from you guys on the convoy and of the beach drives.

Thoroughly enjoyed the trip! Thanks Ravi sir for accommodating my request to join you guys at the last moment. I'm especially sorry for the trouble that I caused by missing the convoy .

Here's my ride on the beach. Do pardon the quality of the video.

It was a wonderful experience meeting so many TBHPians during the meet. Kudos to RSudarsanan, Jayanth(Diesel_convert), KarthikK for organizing it. The attention to detail was just outstanding.

It was fun meeting the mods Vid6639, Ajmat and Samurai for breakfast and would like to thank them for the lovely keychain as well.

Few pictures from my side:

@Robi, fantastic pictures there. The punto splashing through the water has come out superb.

When will I get a chance to have you take photos of my Linea?

My First TBHP meet and what a meet. Enjoyed the drive, got scared a little at the precision with which some of the members take to the ghats and came out a happy man. Ravi sir, Hats off for the planning and execution. I missed the convoy while returning, but i was tracked down

Trying to upload few snaps.

@RSudharsanan Take a bow for the meticulously detailed planning. Loved every minute of this meet. Also would like to thank the other two members for making this such a fantastic meet. Do keep in touch.

Waiting for all the other pictures from all the cameras present during this meet. Keep them coming.
