Am in for June 1. If rain starts by that it would be perfect for a trip to Wagamon.

On the contrary avoid first rains. The roads tend to be slippery.

Wagamon and June 1st are fine with me. My wifey would also join in case its an over night trip. You guys would have to bear with the trouble of my two kids also in that case. Prashob would also chip in with similar story I believe (I hope)

And for the international auto show at Kochi, I wont be in town

Just hope the kids are gonna like you too. Else, it might be scary

Just kidding.

BTW if its gonna be just a one day drive, wouldn't it be better if we shifted this to June 2 ? We can go on June 1 if its an overnighter.

I might be able to get a good deal on a resort in Kuttikkanam. Can enquire if all are interested. What say ??

They are gonna like you anyway Speed.Demon. They are quite friendly. I am only afraid whether they will become too friendly.

Overnight stay at Kuttikkanam sounds fine. We can do a circuitous route in that case. Can drive through Muvattupuzha- Thodupuzha- Wagamon- Kuttikkanam.
Return via Kanjirappally- Pala- Ettumanur. On both routes, roads are in good condition.

On parallel thoughts, return can also be planned through Kumily-Ramakkal medu- Adimali- Kothamangalam. The trip will be a bit too long in that case.

3) Naveen - Free after 20th May

So looks like June 1st/2nd would be the best date to fix if everyone is fine with that. I'm fine with overnight stay but will have to bring my better half if it's a stay (Will decide once I get to hear if there are others to join her - Dhanush, Deepak, Prashob can confirm). But will overnight stay work? We need to book the rooms early right? Most of the entries will be confirmed at the last moment. So guess it's best to go for a one day drive. Any thoughts?

As for the place, Vagamon looks like the preferred place.

Anyways, I'm just putting in my preference.

Proposed Plan
Date - June 1st
Venue - Vagamon

Just raise your comments.
Naveen - This looks very accomodative for me unless any lastminute suprises crop in, both 1st and 2nd June looks free as per my calendar. Please go ahead with your plans.

And venue, anywhere in Idukki is just fine with me because I'll either drive from Kottayam or Thodupuzha .

Thanks.

Edit : I might not be staying back overnight as family is not joining.

Me too. Tempting venues and routes; so very inviting!

May take a call to join, once the variables viz. date/s and daytrip/overnighter are concurred upon by the Kochi team.

coolclouds/denver85: Loud thinking. In case we are able to make it, what is the possibility of driving down together ?

As of now I guess everyone prefers a day drive. Maybe, we can start by 7 in the morning and return by 6-7 in the evening. If it's a one day drive, we need to finalize whether it's june 1st or 2nd? and also the venue. Vagamon seems the preferred place. So if this is fine, kindly mention the preferred date and the venue

OT - I guess you had come to Cochin couple of weeks back. I spotted your car and posted the details in the sticker spotting thread. Your car is really familiar since I have seen in Blore tbhp meet.

Default re: Quick mini-meet(s) in Kochi (Cochin)

Shall we start a head count?

Date - June 1st
Venue - Vagamon


1. vaisakhr (confirm)
2. naveen.raju
3. dhanushmenon
4. speed.demon
5. BigBrad
6. jacs(no stay)
7. amalji
8. Mistakenguy

If its a one day trip June 2nd will be suitable.

Otherwise if we are planning for the over night stay, we need to start planning the stay. Any one have any familiar places, near Vagamon? I hope Dhanush might have some ideas.

When I went to Wagamon, we stayed at a place called something like "Asha Sadan, Eco Nest" or something like that. They have individual cottages and also single/ double rooms. The tariff was some Rs 1250/- per cottage for the night. It is located very close to the kurishumala.
There is no A/c or fan in the cottage as it was adequately naturally ventillated, and at Wagamon, we did not require A/c also then.

On parallel lines of thought, mistakenguy was mentioning something about sizing up a deal with a resort in kuttikkanam or something.

In case of a single day drive also, I am in for Jun 1st or 2nd. vaishakhr, you can add confirm in brackets next to my name too

At this point, I feel like a vagabond shuffling between Chennai, Bangalore and Ernakulam. Vagamon is tempting and I am palpitating like how a dog would after looking at a large piece of bone! June will be too hectic a month for me, so count me in as a partner in spirit! I will definitely attend the next meet before I fly off to Germany in September. Will be missing you all!

Good day friends,
Just happened to see the thread. Please count me in for the meet. June 1 and 2 is just fine as of now unless any last minute surprises pop in.
