Ravi, the CCD you linked to (on the onward leg) is incorrect as far as description goes. As I pointed out in the earlier BANs trip, this one IS NOT the one attached to the HP station. This is a standalone CCD at the Tirupati turn-off (comes on our Right as we ap-proach the Tirupati turn-off). The one attached to the HP station is around 8 to 10 kms BEFORE this one (and comes on our Left).

Confirmed:

1. RSudarsanan - 320d
2. tilt + 1 - i20 CRDi

Cheers

Mohan, in Google maps, when "coffee cafe day chittoor" is inserted in "Add destination" that is what pops up.

Description notwithstanding, that is the standalone CCD, at the Tirupati turn-off, picked randomly as a comfort stop.

Nevertheless, we could stop at the earlier CCD, attached to the HP station, instead of this one, since it is conveniently on the left too .

Hi,

Is it possible to stay at some other place, since Radisson Blu is quite costly for me. Or else, i will have to give it a miss once again.

Regards
Saurav

On 21st, after an exhilarating drive and post check-in, a fairly good guess would be that us land lubbers would head to the water body of choice - sea or pool till 7.30 pm.

Then over to the dinner meet at 8.00 pm. Beverage laced light hearted banter over munchies would precede the main repast .

On 22nd, once done with breakfast, 10 am - 1.00 pm is open to sightseeing. Shore temple and any other within the three hour time frame.

Suggestions welcome.

Count me for this 3 hour meet.

1. RSudarsanan - 320d
2. tilt + 1 - i20 CRD

5. Dr.AD - SX4

Chennai Members (22nd Feb 10:00~13:00 Site seeing)
1. Mr.Boss - Sunny

Shore temple, Pancha Rathas, shopping around should easily consume 3 hours. Or we can have a short drive (16km) to Sadras Fort (if it is 'OK' for everyone)

Got a quote for triple share at the Radisson which results in a saving of 1k per head.
If staying elsewhere, joining us for dinner/lunch would be Rs. 1500/- per meal. You would need to mix and match to suit your budget.
