Thanks to prsnck for initiating the meet.
Am really sorry I couldn't make it for the meet. I shouldn't have to tried to lift that table in the morning

How was the meet? Who all were there? Waiting for a detailed meet report.

Clevermax, expecting some awesome snaps from you bro.

Hi,

Meet between 1030 and 1230. Opposite IG's office, Marine Drive and shifted to Marine Drive itself.

By the what did we do for two hours?

clevermax was very busy with his camera, so should have a lot to post - meet and others!

Vaisakh, you were missed a lot. prsnck apparently had work to do in Tripunithura and also missed the meet. There is always a next time.

BSNL EVDO was particular;y slow today and I had to reupload a photo after editing as I did it earlier without masking the number plates. I managed!

It was nice meeting you trrk, jose and antonio.

This is the first time I am meeting trrk (Dr. Rajesh Kumar) in person, though I know him through PUG and t-bhp for few years.

Few pictures here:

Some car talk (plus general topics) in Marine drive

Oh no, it happened again, I couldn’t make it this time too. Sorry friends, I was offline from Friday afternoon till Monday so that I couldn’t update about the meet. But it would be fine if you could make this meets in the evening then everything will be much easier. Minimum 1 function will be there every Sunday (Am afraid next Sunday is also engaged) and I have to drop my kids to Catechism school after the Sunday Mass. Evenings will be some more relaxed after a heavy meal?

Its great to know that you guys are meeting regularly and I am really eager to meet you all in person, may be next time I could spend some time with all of you. Jose, thank you for the concern and I will make it surely next time.

BTW, nice pictures, at least that will help me to identify you guys if we happen to see before the meet.

I missed this too as I was engaged with official work.
We can certainly catch up next time.
This thread usually updated during thurs - sat most of the time when last minute meets are arranged. Next Sunday, am busy too.
Maybe we can catch up after that.
Anyways, the thread will be updated regularly. Just follow up at times.

See you soon.

Compared to the other photos, mine are nothing. After all there is only so much an HTC phone camera can do!

And yes, that is Thoppumpady. I used that route both for coming and going. The roads in fact were decent for most of the stretch.

My mobile number is there in a previous page. Vaisakh uually starts an SMS chain for the meet. So if we have your number it would be easier to get you in the loop.

The past couple of meets have been in the morning because of me as I have driver duty in the evening. This time even clevermax was free only in the morning.

The next couple of months would be busy days for me and so I may not be able to make it for meets.

So you can choose different timings.

And for me, weekdays are better as my driver will be here for other driving duties. But then you all would be busy!

Me too missed the meet naveen. I lost my traction control during ascending a ladder in ship which gave a sprine on my left hand. It happened last week. My car was having an voice commanded automatic transmission for that time(Me push the clutch and tells my Mom to shift the gear!). It almost cured after 1 week rest in home. But in the sunday morning I was trying to shift a table which made my hand to go back to the same worst condition. The pain was so awesome that it watered my eyes. So went back to the oil+heat treatment and complete bed rest for the day.

Both trrk and antonian were kind enough to offer me a pick-up, but sorry guys. I need to maintain one position to make it less painful and traveling was impossible with that. So I had to say 'Good bye' to the meet. Which was almost sad like my hand.

My guess was correct! There is only one place which we can see that kind of rod with that red bus! The less traffic and comparatively less distance are the advantage of that root. But the roads are bad in some places.

I was about to suggest him that. sajjt PM me your number so I can inform about upcoming meet, which is helpful if you go offline often.

I suggested the morning because both you and clevermax were free for that time.

I've seen your previous posts so I know the reason too.
