We're leaving together
But still it's farewell
And we'll come back
To Bengaluru
I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving without our regulars
Hopefully things will be the same again ?

It's the final countdown
The final countdown
Oh
We're heading for Chettinad
And still we stand tall
'Cause maybe they've seen us
And welcome us all, yeah
With so many kilometres to go
And things to be found
For sure we'll miss all our regulars so

A merry little band will sync up at the crack of dawn tomorrow

The drive manifest:

a. Round trip -
1. RSudarsanan + 1 - BMW 320d
2. Mr_Bean - Suzuki A-Star
3. shetty_rohan - Volkswagen Polo GT T
4. M Rao + 1 - Hyundai i20
5. KiloAlpha + 1½ - Suzuki SX4 S-Cross

b. Breakfast trip -
1. robi + KK + sunnyboi - BMW 328i

Cheers

It was a fantastic drive. Also a great culinary experience at the hotel.

Many thanks to RS for his meticulous planning.

Preface:

Sharing a quote “remixed” for a fellow bhpian shortly before this trip:

Original -
“Do good things whether others notice or not.
It’s the deeds that matter, not the size of your audience.”

Remixed ~
Do good drives, whether others participate or not.
It’s the drive that matters, not the size of the convoy.

This odyssey quintessentially validated it, in more ways than just that.

“…and we'll come back to Bengaluru”
Yes, we did, with memories of Chettinad to treasure for a long time to come.

As is wont, the quintet met and left on schedule

An early rouse, miles and a sumptuous lunch having been munched a siesta was a natural corollary.
