1) There are 125 pix
2) Three Videos ( one taken using my P910i and hence of bad quality but a MUST watch/hear)
3)Will try to add story for pix

so here we go.

I joined Condor and V1p3r from Salem in Condor Sumo Victa... most of us wowed when we saw the Sumo, excellent maintenance by Condor. Started from Salem by 10am and reached Kovai after we picked Harrie ( thanks to him for the Monsoon Mayhem T-shirts). Thandu and MCL were following us in Thadus car.

1)v1p3r took Sumo to 100kmph plus even in 3rd gear. I should say that I was surprised by the built quality, noise insulation and braking of the Sumo. Yes, I did curse v1p3r 2-3 times under breath for doing stunts on our way downhill were we had some nasty bends ( and he was happy …yeee that’s a drift!)



2)saw this at Kovai.


3)]What a match, says v1p3r.


4)Harrie trying to find some charcoal for the barbeque


5)My driver and navigator taking pix on the way! Scary!


6)Stop for a tea


7)Thadu has to let us go as the road is better suited for SUV and sort


8)Some pix after we met the rest of the gang. Harrie’s bro carrying our beer.


9)Steer met KB 3 months back and hence when they met after his come back from Dxb!


10)MCL! Have it? Flaunt it! (oops, missed a t there!)


11)Time to cross the fences. The first is easy one but the second is electrified by late eve! Sacred me initially as I am still a bachelor



12)[ook at KB’s face. KB thinks “vellam here” and “water here!” Steer now start mixing.



13)da silent valley club

A picture perfect location, shutter crazy members, hot rides... what else can we expect here? Beautiful pics guys. I liked the one with the reflection of the sunrise on the Safari. It's a majestic car for the pics. Zak made much out of the early morning ride too, I see.

sorry I had been caught up at work for the past few days and was not able to register my presence here. I needed to thank everyone who made it to the meet and made it a very enjoyable one.

Zak, special thanks to you for organizing everything smoothly.... everything went as per plan, if not better. Looking back, I am amazed at how much was done in that short time. Harrie, many thanks for those wonderful T-shirts. I appologise for the confusion for the print being done on the backside.... my appologies for the guys who got bitten by the bed bugs too.

As usual, I got a chance to meet some very interesting members for the first time:

Condor (your Sumo was quite a surprise, with that nice ICE... no complexities, just a simple setup that sounds so nice.),

MansIdea (I had to meet you to know how to pronounce your ID... he he... great pics pal.)

Mohit... can't believe what you did to the Accord. Now I can only imagine what you'd do with the Perf. mods. Too bad we did not get to see the Getz.

Charan & Sanjay... not exactly the first time we are meeting but it was very nice having you guys with us.

And of course, it was very nice to meet the other oldtimers... (in no particular order) Hydra, Nikki, Rahul, Tadu, Steer, KB, Nash, Aha, JK (sorry I forgot to wish you afterall...), Akshay.

Charan deserves a special thanks again, for being a wonderful host.

Thanks everyone, it was a well needed break for me and a very enjoyable one at that. So, when is the next meet???

22) Time to head to the camp for barbeque and fun. The gang waiting for blueboy's arrival and then he comes and hails us!




23) Steer,kb and thadu arrives with food and firewood and mcl helps them unload it from the dicor. The barbeque!






24) The king ( blueboy hold record for sitting in the throne for 2.30hrs!) with Charan. Guys, looks at Charan's face carefully! The scene before Steer ran off for a bath! Zakkie distributing the CDs. Lovely pix! Now you know why I asked you guys to watch charan's face! Look where Blueboys's leg is!





25) The drive to Ooty! Check the refection on top the Safari!










quicksilver! when's the next meet? This saturday at Tvm! lol!

Sumit, come to Sutra tonight and I'll tell you myself. If you have enough money, I can give you an action replay!

JK, seriously man, how about thumbnails next time? I have over 50 pics that aren't showing, and this is the 6th time I'm refreshing this page.

Great snaps, JK!

Now is this the meet thread with the maximum number or snaps or what? And Condor hasn't even posted his snaps yet. Judging by his equipment and the quiet way he went about his business, I have a feeling the best snaps are being saved for the last.

Guys, will have to disappoint you on these. I'm no where close to Rudra, and all of you have posted some lovely snaps already. I will not be able to add much to that, but will post some pics which have not been covered yet. Sunday.

Default Some more pics! Shall I say?

Ok, The bandwidth is really running low to load all these huge pictures in a go!
Hey, 2mbps lines are out and available. Get one of those and enjoy.


I did have a nice time enjoying the drive and the meet.


Drive thru Silent Valley is something to be seen and experienced to believe.


We had to stop frequently to let those beautiful scenery reach here.



There were huge rocks and hills all the way.


This was one cute chameleon we got to see at Steeroid's home.
Yes, we did stop at his home to catch some mangoes. And how tasty they were! Thanks Steer.
