Further, is it a family event?

My Autobot is CT Green

Oh.., you are referring your 4 wheeled Autobot!
I am reffering to my 2 wheeled Autobot!!

@Inderji...Where are you??
Ok, if all are good for a friday!
( I was pitching Saturday so, any work if required, can be done on Friday, Oil/brake/tyre checks - since its like 400km journey in all!! )

hmm, that seems tough.
But, Fri/Sat?

and, guys update the list!!

We should make it final by day end, so we can convey to Chennai guys as well, so, chances of them making it will be better.

All rise!

Actually we are still not sure whether its going to be a day event or covering the whole weekend and all we have is today and tomorrow to decide.
Can we make it still?

The need of the moment is someone to lead.Ek neta ki zaroorat hai.

Usually all successfull trips had someone taking initiative yelagiri(DD), Gokarna(Avijit) and the story goes on.
Do we have one here as we don't have time and someone has to put down the plan in writing for others to agree or disagree.
And just one day doesn't make sense here considering the long weekend.At least we should stay overnight and then come back the next day evening.Be if a fri-sat combination or a sat-sun combination.I am game for anything.Don't want to be on the road throughout the day.
I understand that some folks need to work on this friday too, so guess we can make it sat-sun too.

But the point it lets be fast and zoom on the place and the plan.

Horseley hills will be pretty hot during summer. The height is less than our own Nandi hills. (NH 1479 mtrs and HH 1265Mtrs)

Anyway, guys enjoy the outing. Viist Rishi Valley school. I am not sure wheter you will be able to get acco as a small resort by APTDC is the onlly option on the hills or have to stay in Madanapalle. I would have joined but for the fact that I am driving to Tirthahalli on family commitment. Will join next time.

Happy driving!!

Anyday is fine for me but before updating the list as SURE we need to first

1) Decide if its a day trip or more.
2) Destination
3) Cost

DD where are you when we need you? you started the FIRE.

Some of the hotels in Kodai still have rooms and rate will be in the range of 1900-2300/night/ double bed room. But we need to figure out how many are going, and how many are up for overnight halt.And if we can go till Kodai(430km) why not Munnar(475km)? My choice will always be an overnight trip as a day trip in this summer within a range of 200kms will be too much to handle.

I am game for anything provided it materializes.The tempo with which we are going on discussing seems that when we conclude on the venue and trip days it would already be monday.

OK guys...cool. Looks like the teaser has actually ignited fire.

Few points what I feel:

1. Kodai has rooms still available as confirmed by Avijit.
2. Munnar and Kodai ideally should not be combined unless you have minimum 5 days at your disposal. It will be just like a drag racing on the highways. The holiday fun will not be there.
3. Figure out how many will be ON for Kodai as the more the merrier.
4. If it happens to be a one-day event, I would prefer some fun places (say GRS Fanatasy or Innovative Film City ) instead of just dry lands like Horshley.
5. If it happens to be a 2 day program, Kabini, BR Hills, or Coorg would fit the bill.

Need to know how may are for one-day, how many for 2 days and how many for 3 days. Based on that we could converge.
