Unfortunately and to my chagrin, the drive ended prematurely, after dinner, with members bidding goodbye to each other at the resort itself. Alas, so uncharacteristic of our earlier sign-offs, sigh.

The End

Nice pictures and narrative Ravi. But how come no one else has posted any pictures? I was hoping to cover more of this trip through virtual/ pic-logue since I could not join

Unfortunately, I was too busy driving to take pictures. Sorry.

For me, this trip was a serious learning exercise. I "learnt" my new S-Cross. 980km of driving, in which about 380km was on flat 4-laned roads and 600km of twisties taught me a whole lot about how my car handled and responded to inputs.

I loved and enjoyed the trip. Loved driving in those twisties, with nice smooth surface. In the route we took, there were no bad stretches.

Some shots from my collection.
The road on both routes was well, with occasional traffic.

Schedule was made for a leisurely drive with well placed breaks.
We always bet the schedule at sedate driving.

Thanks Sachin for taking a look at my ride to see what the problem is. As you guessed correctly, it was the fuel quality. When I filled it again, at a different bunk, the unnecessary raising seem to have gone. Now, I will work on getting the Clutch play fixed well.

As always, this was a great trip. A truly memorable one! Thanks a lot RSUDARSANAN for organizing this, and for the perfect execution as always, and thanks to everyone for the wonderful company.

Here are some pictures that I took (unfortunately, many are repetitions of those posted by others, but still...)

1. The "main building" of the resort:

And now, with fond memories of this drive, eagerly looking forward to the next one. So, the usual question to end this: Ravi, when is the next drive? :-)

Thanks,
-AD

Technically it is the beach next to Someshwara Temple in Dombe village. Googling for Someshwara beach will take you to Ullal.

Oh, really? Maybe we missed something. But we actually googled Someshwara beach and followed Google navigation to that beach. This is the location that Google showed us:

Adding names to Google map is easy. Locally (in that village) they call it Someshwara beach, because of the temple. Generally beaches around here are referred by their location, to avoid confusion.

For example, Vadabhandeshwara beach is nothing but Malpe beach, exact same location too.

Yes, you are right. Searching google maps near Ullal, I found another sport with another Someshwara Temple and another Someshwara Beach right next to it.

However, that beach (in Ullal) is quite far from Wild Woods resort (3 hours, according to Google). The resort manager told us of a Someshwara beach which is 30 minutes away, so I think he had the same spot in mind where we went. So although technically we did not go to the Someshwara beach, we did go to the intended spot :-)

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I will keep this in mind next time I go to that area.
