Sorry, I am not sure which flyover is this. From ORR, I have never driven towards Bengaluru - I always take the exit for the airport. Do I have to take that exit for this flyover and NOT take the road towards Bengaluru? If yes, then do I come down the ramp and then take a U turn to get back on the road that goes towards B'lore? Please correct me if I am way off the mark here.

It'll probably be marginally easier if we meet at a point that is a bit ahead after the ORR. That way folks who take the ORR will take the exit towards B'lore, and folks who take the PVNR expressway to come to the airport can also merge there. Something like this BP petrol pump?

EDIT: Wife and kid would like to join us! Kid is 4 years old, so it won't impact the buffet. Can I add them, please? The other advantage is that if wife is joining, then the plan cannot get cancelled .

Thanks for the feedback! Looks like we are in for a treat with respect to the food. Parking et. all we will have to anyways park on road as no hotel will have parking for 30+ cars

That is one comprehensive list of cost break-up and most of which as usual skipped my mind

Exactly. When coming from Gachibowli, exit ORR and DO NOT take the flyover that goes to Airport. Instead take a U-turn just outside ORR exit and face towards Bangalore highway and you will see all cars parked on that road to the left

No need to ask permission. Most of us are coming with spouses so your wife and kid are most welcome.

Its really good to see this enthusiasm from so many T-BHPians, getting more interesting.

@Avi, for Hyd BHPians, do we have any stop-over/plans for breakfast? because reaching the Pit-stop after 120 kms from starting point might take around an hour and half (maybe) i.e. 10-10:30 AM which might be little late for some of us to have breakfast.

So I am just putting my thoughts/options
1) Have the breakfast before we meet @8AM
2) Plan for breakfast at the starting point, for which we might have to adjust above schedule (we have few breakfast joints on the left before we take Airport turn)
3) Have some snack on the fly (might not be possible with Family/kids?)

Any other suggestions/plans are welcome.

Good Thought but, unlike Bangalore BHP'ians we are starting at a liesurely time so my strong recommendation is to have breakfast before reaching the meeting point or carry some light breakfast along with you that can be munched during the drive like (Sandwiches, Poha, Upma, Idly etc)

We cannot afford to have too many stops for a short 200kms drive

Even the tea-break is not really required but, it's good opportunity for all of us to catch up and get to know each other etc.

Great response from both the sides.

Team from Bangalore , pls carry all documents and paper work , apparently all the KA cars are being flagged down at Ananthapur for routine checks. This has been happening for the last couple of weeks. A cousin was stopped 3 days ago.

My apologies, but I still did not get it the location.
Is there any landmark there?
Or can you show it on a map, please?

Thanks.

I guess, its just beyond the famous newly opened Pulla Reddy Sweet House on this NH (just before one takes left side entry to airport if coming from Shamshabad side). Somewhere here 17.249953, 78.376099

Pl recheck!!! with Mods!!!

Hi SKavuri,

I presume you have been to airport via Shamshabad. once you cross Shamshabad, you generally take left (ramp road which catches the flyover) to reach airport. All you need to do is to keep driving straight without taking any turns. You will land up near the bigger flyover running above you on that road which is Outer Ring Road. That is the landmark I guess where our Team BHPians pointed the first pit stop. Bangalore Highway is just the plain straight road from shamshabad till Bangalore . You can see it for yourself.
You may come up with more than one fly over above bangalore highway, but they are hardly 200m away. so its just line of sight and I am sure you will catch up with them. If possible take someone's mobile number to guide you once you reach shamshabad.

Regards,
Sikky

Silkyonwheels and Novicefreak : Why aren't you joining?
Hello Mobike008,

Firstly, let me introduce myself. I am "Sikky". Joined TeamBHP recently.
I was excited to meet all the Hyderabad TeamBhpians and was almost to post a comment that I am joining too, but yesterday I was dumped with a new project with deadline of just one week which means I will be working on Saturday, Sunday and Monday which actually were holidays as per our office calendar. I will try to meet you guys at the specified location within the specified time, introduce myself and continue my journey to office.

Will be joining in future plans for sure.
I will inform in this thread if the scheduled plans at our office are postponed.

Regards,
Sikky

Plan your return in such a way that you meet us at Kurnool for lunch or if that cannot happen atleast try to reach by 3:00pm so you can drive back with Hydeez gang?

Welcome to Team-BHP and sorry to know that despite your interest you are forced to work on the weekend. Sigh! that's what is life all about.

I believe in working when I get bored from vacations

Just kidding...do not take it literally

Please do join us at the meeting point, would be nice to meet up with you

I have been organizing Team BHP meets since a decade ( Will complete 10 years on Monday---Unfortunately, should have been on Sunday so it would have been a perfect celebration for me personally) and organized plenty of them but, over the last couple of years I have lost the enthusiasm due to many reasons

Bottomline, Please do not expect this kind of a meet to happen AGAIN anytime soon !!!

Thanks to the efforts of you, sikyonwheels and novicefreakrl, I did understand the location.

I am used to taking PVNR expressway to Airport but on 11th I will have to take ORR to airport first time.

In case I miss the exit, I will try to catch up with the team at destination. I've no clue where Pyramid is, as well.
