H4wk has a custom-made video camera setup in his car - to record onboard videos from the dashboard.

"Action" shots of 24 hot cars zipping by the curves is going to be a nice video. Yeah yeah, absolutely sedate drives .

Thanks. Then I am in from the start point till the breakfast point or up to Dodballapur whichever comes earlier. As karthik said, half ticket!

I seriously doubt weather we could park around 22 cars at the meeting point opposite esteem mall on the service road. If cops are present around, no chance. They usually chase you off even If u stop on the service road to attend a phone call. May be since it is early morning, would be less of an issue. Howeever, any 'plan B'?

Last time roads were bad so I remember us discussing that you should put it away, with the risk of hard disk head damaging the surface and all . These are flat out roads tomorrow, plus the convoy is double the size. Start getting to work now, and assemble it again. Its a Saturday so you're free anyway!

Should'nt be an issue at 6.30am, and cops will still be sleeping at that time, more so since its a Sunday. Opposite Columbia asia is usually free at that time. That's not a no-parking area anyway, as far as i know.

Them bad roads were after we turned off the Kanakpura road. Could get some good shots until then (and after that too), but no Team-BHP cars

Btw, I'm out all day (at the hospital). Will get back home in the evening, wash the car and the setup the rig. I don't think I'm gonna sleep tonight

Something like this :

6.30 AM - meet-up opposite Columbia asia.
7-7.15 AM - leave after all members have arrived and chit-chatted for a while
8.15-8.30 - breakfast at Doddaballapur railway station - wherever that place is (experts please advise route). People who want to get back home after breakfast can do so. The rest can continue for the pseudo ghat section drive.

9-9.30 - leave after breakfast to visit Makalidurga fort
10.30 - 11 - depart and return home by ~12.30 -1.

Bangalore-Doddaballapur-Makalidurga-Doddaballapur-Dobaspet-Bangalore - 160kms roundtrip ?

Guys I think the Makali fort is on top of the hill. Its easily an hour or more of climb. And I think the fort is almost non-existant. Its more for the view from the top.
But what I meant was, you need to account for some climbing time. Also after the sunrise. the base of the hill is pretty open, and hence if its not cloudy, the sun would be strong.

Last But not least : Please take care. The temple base has an unmanned railway crossing for a Kacha road.

Columbia Asia should not be a problem, but do we have parking at the station, and on top of the hill for 24 cars?

Just confirm @mempheS, the crossing is NOT for cars, but for people to walk over the track at this crossing to reach the temple.
