By the way, just a quick question. 25th January is Monday (working day), which means this is a Sunday-Monday drive instead of our usual Saturday-Sunday drive. So did you really mean 25th Jan, or is it the 23/24 Jan (Saturday - Sunday, as usual) drive?

Just checking...

Thanks,
-AD

24/25 Jan '15 it is - a lunar weekend for a change .

Figured, most would apply for leave on 25th and stretch the weekend.

We also cash in the 20% weekday discount.

Cheers

Good idea, but unfortunately Monday can not be bunked. Any chances we day-trip with you? Worst case, we shall drive with you, eat evening snacks on pay-as-you-go basis and return to Bangalore same evening while rest of the gang can continue on the overnighter. Possible?

Guys, day trippers welcome. Fyi :

Day Visit Package Includes: Coracle Ride, Lunch and Guided Trekking.

Ascertained from JLR, for day package:
1. No discount
2. No dinner , even at additional cost
3. check out around 5.30 pm
4. Cannot be booked on their website
5. Therefore, call 40554055, ask for Galibore 24th day package; they will send you a link to your email id and you can pay online.
6. Once done, do add your names to the day trippers list below


Done and dusted, I hasten to elucidate that the quintessence of this drive meet is in the evening...

Post sunset, under a starlit sky, on the banks of the Cauvery, swathed in the moonlight of a full moon, a bon fire to nip the chill, a bar-be-que to tickle the palate, an assortment of beverages and sloshing earthy wit and humour - need I say more .

Now you know why the day package was not offered upfront.

Cheers

Overnighters:
1. RSudarsanan + 1 - 320d
2. Muralidhar Rao + 3 - i20
3. tilt + 1 - Jetta

I am a regular at JLRs RSUDARSANAN sir, but never once thought that the actual experience could be this Poetic !!

I almost confirmed my presence before I read Dr.AD's post. I have exhausted all my leaves for this year at least. I have to wait for them to refresh in March and there is no way out of that

I have to skip this one too. :(
