Guys, I am in for either Saturday or Sunday.

I have a bit of a vision impairment that makes driving at night a bit difficult. But I can manage unless we need to keep driving into oncoming traffic. Would prefer a day-trip more than anything else though. But please don't change plans if you guys prefer a longer trip. If its too far this time, I'll definitely join in next time.

Also, anyone bringing their "SO"s?

Nozzlering - looks like you are not married / in a relationship. If you had had a significant other, then you would not have asked the question ..

Sorry for bringing this up abruptly. 800 kms ride/drive can be done in a day definitely, but this will be more of endurance for the rider/driver.

I have post on my blog for one such ride to Jog Falls. The link is here

A brief summary of this ride.

Quote:
Distance covered - 828.7 kms
Total trip duration - 15 hours and 30 mins

Umm.. Just a guess here - SO in the context Condor is referring to would mean Significant Other. I think

Horsley hills is not that bad. The only resort there is good enough and some of the places that you can visit around (sun set, sun rise points and a couple of cliffs around) are good for one day ride or drive. I can say that from one trip I made a few years back.

we wanted to test that endurance, thats why its called crazzy drive, I have been there now more than 10 times, just wanted to do it in a group, but as Karthik has suggested we keep it open for June-July, when Jog is in full flow.

SO = Significant Other (typically used so as to not offend the people who have live-in relationships, alternative partners etc)

Are we converging on a few places yet? Looks like part of the group wants to go long-distance and others want to go somewhere closer. Anyways, I am up for the weekend drive. Will keep checking the thread.

Or we could use SWMBO - She Who Must Be Obeyed

I am in for a weekend drive.

Last few pages have gone really confusing. Can someone please clear up the date and location? May 1st I won't be able to join as I'm going for another drive. Next weekend I think I should be able to join. But single day cannon-ball run to Jog and back is not worth it I guess. The place itself and surrounding are so beautiful during the monsoon that you have to spend more than a day to enjoy it properly.
Another place that you can cover is Kere Thonnur and Melukote (they are just 10kms apart) at approx 140kms from Bangalore. Good roads all the way. Don't miss the sunset over Kere thonnur

Guys, shall we finalize Mettur Dam? This place seems to be ideal as there are good restaurants on the way and also good roads.

My Vote -
Date : 5th May; Place : Mettur Dam.

Fantastic snaps out there during the Nandi Hill trip. May be better than the chikmagalur ones.

Missed quite a few for some time. Hopefully in a catching up mode now.

Anil - No reward for guessing the word. Condor had already mentioned it.

Sirjee, i don't think many of here are endured enough like the DON.

But as somebody mentioned earlier Jog would be better post monsoon.

Suggest - Dubare if people are interested in rafting.
Talakkad could be another option.

Guys...we need to freeze the place fast.

I was just going through the options. What is Kanakapura lake?? Never heard of it! Do you mean Thattekere?

Kaushik's suggestion for Thonnur Kere also is good. Nice place with very little traffic. Unfortunately, the traffic on Mysore road makes you want to .

Also, Talakadu can be clubbed with Shivanasamudra if we are doing either. Both are relatively close by.

Correction with Hogenakkal distance - it is 185km I think, not 125. At this time of the year, Hogenakkal will be a view of rock formations, no water *lol*

anyway I am in for anything. You guys decide the location.
