Default re: Mumbai & Pune BHPians! Monsoon Drive to Malshej Ghat, 27th July 2014. Final Plan on p

Although I won't be able to come, I'd definitely suggest going Malshej rather than other places mentioned above.

It is a must visit in rains atleast for people from Mumbai and Pune who have been to other getaways around the cities.

Trust me, not doing Malshej means missing to enjoy the truly Monsoon Drive.
Sounds convincing, let's do the Malshej drive this time!! I'm all game!

Drunk rowdies with no traffic sense is a common phenomenon at all monsoon spots...especially on weekends. The trick is to start early, reach the spot before the crazy crowds arrive, enjoy in a fairly large group and sneak out of the place before it gets mad.
Reaching early would surely help. Most drunkards & unruly crowds would arrive around 11am and beyond i think.

I will be in Mumbai from 19th July to 10th August to visit my sister in Hiranandani. I hope to join this drive, whatever the destination is.
The only problem is that I will be reaching Mumbai by flight and hence wont have the most important thing for a drive - car.
Let me see if I can convince a couple of friends in Mumbai to join in with their cars. Will update the list if I succeed. Fingers crossed.

I am in! Will be riding shotgun with someone from the WhatsApp group.

I am surprised by the weak response this drive has got. The weather is awesome. The place is great. The roads are wonderful. This is going to be one heck of a drive!

So all those who are holding back, please add your names to the list.

P.S.: All those who haven't attended a meet till date, please do join in. You will surely not forget this drive.

Cheers

As mentioned before in this thread, i am in. Ritz VDI, I will be accompanied with 2 of my friends from Mumbai, Andheri East. Let me know the meeting point. This would be my first BHP Drive and i am so looking forward to it.

One question, are out of forum people allowed? I have a friend ( Hubby and wife ) wish to join in their own car, allowed?

Hello Bhavik,

In case you aren't able to convince your friends, you can ride shotgun with one of the Mumbai bhpians. A few of them would be starting from Hiranandani itself. Hope to see you there.

I have to admit that while I'm sure the drive will be spectacular (Malshej really is as pretty as a picture in the rains), I'm just not sure I'd get up on time on a Sunday! Putting myself down tentatively; if somehow I awaken on time, I'll be there
