Smile Hmmm,,,,,,, Good!

Thanks all for showing special interest. It is great to see that so many new guys are in this time.
Please bring your friends along with you. It will be wonderful to meet you all. As told earlier, please inform us how many they are. We will do a final headcount tomorrow.

Regarding the location, Vagamon is slowly catching up as a favorite now. The rains are once again gathering it's might on our state. So, Kumarakom will be dull if it rains. Anyways, let me study both the options till tonight and will announce it tonight.

How many will be bringing their cars? How many wants to hitch a ride? Please post that now.

That's for now. There are some more confirmations yet to come from Trivandrum.

Location!
It seems Kumarakom will be easily accessible for all. For now I am putting my cards on Kumarakom. Let me book a house boat with lots of Karimeen and Konchu varutthathu. The plan is to leave as early as possible to Kumarakom via Cherthala. We will meet the guys coming from southern parts like Trivandrum etc... at Chertala. We all drive together to Kumarakom and settle at a cool place after parking our cars. When the house boat is ready, we get into it and sail away. We have lunch and lots of gupshup with lots of local spice. The backwater cruise takes about 2 hours or so. We return after that and have tea somewhere and then reach our homes before 8PM!

If it is Vagamon, then we will have to leave our homes a bit more earlier. We have to get together somewhere in the outskirts of Cochin and drive thru Muvattupuzha, EerattuPetta, Kanhirappally to Vagamon. It is going to be a splendid drive. Those who coming from south will have to meet us at Kanhirappally. We can laze around the hills and enjoy the marvelous beauty of the peaks and grasslands. Have lunch somewhere together, Gupshups and drive back. Even in this case, we will reach home before 8PM!

Either ways, it is going to be lots of fun! So, let's get it going guys!

Oopppps!! A small mistake!
We don't have to go to Kanhirappally for Vagamon. It is approachable from Eerattupetta. That means Trivandrum guys will have to come to Kottayam and come via Ettumannoor to Eerattupetta. We will meet up there.

Here's a small map from Vagamon.com.


Hope you guys make out something out of it.

They can drive up to Pala and turn from there to Erattupetta.
