Not just photography. We need lots of videos as well during the drive.

Vaisakh, are you listening?

If you are going in that direction this week, you might as well take over the responsibility of being the captain. My memory is a bit rusty. I have a GPS though.

If your recce doesn't materialise, I can take the lead also. No probs. I suggested you cos, I thought that a swanky new 'surprise' would be a better sight to bring up the front of the convoy.

Hey guys, I know the road till Thodupuzha diversion from Muvattupuzha very well. Won't Maradu/ Wyte Fort be a detour? I can wait for you guys at Karingachira, just before St.George Cathedral as I am from Tripunithura.

You will need to head straight at SN junction and there is a toll just after the railway bridge (INR 7.50 for the day). The other road through Tripunithura town is all dug up for laying pipes. And take the first right just after the toll and spot Kungipalu with the Got BHP? sticker.

Have updated the list.

Confirmed :
1. vaisakhr
2. dhanushmenon + wife + 2 kids (drive/ stay- 1st/2nd June)
3. Sree83
4. naveen.raju+wife (DRIVE - 2nd June)
5.mistakenguy (DRIVE-2nd June)
6. Jacs
7. Amalji (DRIVE - 2nd June)
8. BigBrad (DRIVE - 1st/2nd June)
9. rajoy123 + Wife (Drive - 2nd June)
10. Speed.Demon (drive/ stay- 1st/ 2nd Jun)
11. deetjohn (drive/ 2nd June)

Tentative:
1. Recallers & Coolclouds
2. revintup + wife
3. Voyageur
4. Eagle eye
5. Figo_mba (???)
6. Beejay
7. Alexpaul
8. ImprezaFan (+ Wife?) - Will confirm in a day or two.

I will have my camera with me. But I request everyone to bring their own too. As I will have my car with me, I won't be able to shoot while driving. And more eyes means more pics.

BTW, am here at little flower church, elamkulam. Our dear Bhpian Jose.Joseph is getting married today.

Then that would be better. Let's meet right after the toll. Should have some empty stretch to park our rides.

May I help you with driving incase I'm not bringing my car? Only if you are comfortable handing over your car to another person. Else, no issues.

Ok then. The meeting place for Bhpians starting from Kochi has been fixed as the place after the toll and the right turn after that.
Time- 0700
Departure time- 0720

mistakenguy, if you are doing that recce which you had mentioned, kindly also look for spots enroute and also at destination where we can do photo shoots

Where are you intending to wait for the convoy?

I am driving down from Kalady and am also intending to join the drive from Muvattupuzha.

I think the ideal place would be at velloorkkunnam. After the hdfc bank, (which is on the left side immediately after HP Petrol pump). There is ample room for parking our rides. Incidentally what would be the best time that you reckon to arrive there?

I don't have an issue handing over the 'car' to you. But, sorry I love driving more than photography . You are always welcome to join my ride. I will hand over my d7000 as soon as you join .
