Man, what a coincidence! I am doing almost the same drive with my family (part of a family get-together) in August.

Still, of course I don't want to miss this company and the chance of hanging out with you guys. So I will come again for that :-)

- To get to GRT, it will be quite some pain
- The hotel is below the 4-lane at a very busy signal. Also you need to get on to service lane earlier.
- You guys will lose a lot of time.


Some places you can look at instead:
- There is a new A2B at Arcot just a few km before you exit for Tindivanam. Its a new one.
- A2B Chinnar after Attibele is very close.
- Sai Sangeeth though is about 150 from Silk Board is a much much better hotel (12km on your side after Vanyambadi toll). Depends on how long you guys want to drive you want to break.
- Also the Chinnar A2B wont be ready with food very early. Expect delays.

Done. A2B Arcot it is.

. Chinar said they open @ 6 am. Whatever fare is ready at that time will be the b'fast menu.

As drive time/breaks are fairly evenly spread out, not tweaking that.

Thanks a ton for the timely inputs
