Tell your boss to go and get a life.

Weekends are not for office work. Work life balance

P.S. no offense meant if my post comes across as rude.

Sorry if the message misguided you. But his boss is his better half so waiting for her approval.

For sure shot approval, say you're required for a few hours at work over the weekend.

Good idea, but his wife is in the same profession as he is so difficult to fool her about working late i guess.

Any drives planned during this weekend? More than a month since the last meet happened I guess.

Hi Guys,

Great to see this thread .
I'm pretty new to Team-BHP, and used to always wonder how and when the meets happen.

Finally found this superb thread. Was reading about all your trips, awesome, especially the Krishnagiri one .

I stay in Jayanagar and would love to be part of such trips.

Unfortunately I'm planning a trip to Nagarjunasagar this weekend, so would not be able to make it to your trip this weekend.

- Cheers.

Any new place in mind this time?

- The only two roads that are currently good for drives are Mangalore & Hyderabad road.
More over 2 weeks back when i went to dharmasthala i saw 2 coffee days on the way to mangalore road. One should be around 50km and another 100km from nelamangala i guess. We can do a drive to one of those places. OR

- We can do a Dinner meet this saturday?
So that many folks who are busy can take time to join us for 2 hours.

My friends and I just planned a marathon monsoon drive to Kodaikanal, Ooty, Valparai or some other hilly place this weekend, so a meet this weekend is off for me too.

Will keep my eyes peeled for updates on this thread, and will join in case my trip doesn't happen.

@Brraj - CCD drive sounds good. You were suggesting Horsley hills during our last meet. If everyone is ok with that, we can explore that place for the next meet. Roads are also superb on that route. I don't think BHPians have done a meet here. Many people may not have gone here. In fact, I being a localite here also have not gone to Horsley hills , I'd not even heard of it earlier until you guys told me.

dinner meet is ok, as long as it is in some highway restaurant with a good drive and adequate parking facilities for 10-15 cars. Or else people might turn up in autorickshaws if we meet at koramangala or mg road area *lol*.

P.S - any other suggestions - waterfalls? hills? beaches? grasslands? snowscapes? lagoons?

Been to Horsley Hills and World's largest Banyan tree some 90 kms from Horsley hills! A very nice place, but the suggested time to visit here would be Monsoons! We went there around the last weekend of April and felt like sitting in an airconditioned microwave oven (friend's Chevy Spark) And the area is very much dried up.

Bunch of AP Forest department guest houses are on the hill top but worth reserving in advance if you're planning a weekend there. Worth visiting for a weekend chillax but not recommended for a day drive. Roads in Karnataka are pathetic - courtesy: Expansion project going on near Chintamani.

Planning for a night trek to Kuntibetta next weekend! Any motorheads interested to see a sun-rise and start July in an unusual fashion? Or alternatively can plan up for a meet on Sunday evening somewhere (saw this thread and observed not really a meet was organized in last month)

Nope! Didn't go trek but went with a group of bikers on a ride to Sivasamudra on Sunday. Write-up being saved for my own blog! :-D

If you're interested for a trek this weekend, PM me - I don't belong to any profit-related adventurous or tourist organization. On treks on own passion!
