WE MISSED THE HD by just few Mins.

Though a lot did not happen over a coffee something did that's because Hemanth and I were not updated.
I reached home after playing Cricket in off and was tired and did not feel like getting on to the Net. Hemanth on the other side was stuck with Family and never got to check for updates.
We finally started at 11:30 and reached the Toll by 0005 and waited till 0030, we did not find any one there and decided to drive to CCD and wait there with a cup of Coffee.
Finally after 15Mins we saw a Fiesta (sorry I don't recollect the name - it should be Niranjan) enter and thought all have arrived just to know that the whole plan was canceled that's the reason I told a lot did not happen over a coffee and we drove back after a quick bite if Sizzling Brownie.

The drive was good and we reached home by 2:30am. Hope to meet all next time. HD we missed you.

One learning on this ride:Exchange Mob Numbers and be updated.

Glad you guys carried on!

Extremely sorry you weren't informed. I tried everything to do that; called up everyone hoping to find out your no.

Anywho, hope the next one turns out good.

I would have joined if it was not raining, wanted to put some miles on my new bike. But the weather is too bad for the bike drive.

Hello guys, I have recently relocated from Delhi to this beautiful city. And I would love to meet you guys, be it on Team-BHP meets, or drive. I stay in Whitefield (Prestige Shantiniketan), and if anyone is nearby, would be great for any impromptu meet too. Cheers!

Welcome, good to see there are still folks who like to move here, even though the infra and a few things are quite in a bad state! Hope you have a good stay, we can catch up sometime as my home location is not too far, PM me your number and we can meet up, am assuming your work location is also nearby whitefield?

Impromptu drive?? Yeah right.

What started off as an in city drive ended up being an amazing road trip of 600kms. Will let Libran start the travelogue and let the pics do the talking.

It was one hell of a trip and the 3 of us had a great time.
