Yup, 25K it is. We had asked him the same while he gave us a lift to the trekking spot.

OK, So here & Now comes the part about THe trek.

We finished the climb and parked inside the resort. Since lunch is arranged only at 1:30 and we reached at 11:30 or so, young Mc Stumpy says we'll go for a viewpoint, which has some drive and some trekking.

Piled up into a few cars, Waited for sometime for somebody to show the way to the view point & Tadu got bored.He told Vikram we'll drive a lil bit. Then almost everbody started following.

Then Saw memo stopped a lil bit in front, Chap must've been asking directions , Tadu enthusiastically asked him to follow.Tadu'll show the way.

Tadu was directing Vikram.(without having aclue about the place). Till finally the road ended. He asked an old guy about a view point. and Old Guy is like "View pointo... Athu ennathu saar"

But our enthusiastic Tadu never gave up.. He told Guys.. From here is the trek.

And there started the tbhp trek.

Wise are those who decided to turn back less than halfway into the trek. When most of the others got back following the trek, they were almost lucky to get some form of transportation back to the resort, which was about 5-6 kms away.

And how so? The trek was fabulous. You guys missed the beautiful view from right up there. Shame that there were none of these men with their DSLR's or whatever that is they carry trying to be Rudra Sen Jr (hint: Rudy loves nature btw).

Default The best type of redlining, in 5th gear!



Car redlined in 5th gear. And boy, do I love this thing for doing that.

And I am uploading a couple of Gigs to Google Videos. Will take quite a bit of time to complete, probably another day. Hopefully, this time we will have a clear video of the whole drive (one way, around an hour).

Since MAI says Naturally Aspirated 1600 class cannot have weight reduction by using fibre parts I am but forced to take up the challenge you see . A few surprises coming up shortly. Keep watching this space.

My my! Can't wait for the uncensored version. Your car is beautifully fast you know. And you do know how to treat her well.

Great photo work as always Riju. The 2 pix that edge out all the other magnificent ones are the front-on shot of Vikram's mean Swift and your Baleno - which looks very classy. Vikram in his Swift looks like Nigel Mansell in an F1 car


Vikram - my birthday is coming up in August. I wouldnt mind for those headlights. Pl ensure both the low and hi are HIDs. And a new lo-mid range Raj Hingorani FFE with catback.
