Yeah, and the way that guy turned tail in just a few seconds, on seeing so many angry BHPians was classic. He was aggressive for a moment, totally toned down the next, looking scared the next, and in his car the next. Even the people on the roadside were giving him dirty looks. (The 2 other guys in his car sat right inside the car all through.) The whole incident was over in less than a minute!

Steer, the way that guy spoke and behaved, he definitely needed to be dealt with right there. You did the right thing.

xinome, of course, had to do something xinomish. He ran out of the car soon as I stopped it, went right up to the crowd, pushed right into it and asked the guy: "Dude, what exactly is the problem?" (or something like that, with the "Dude" definitely in the picture). I guess the guy didn't hear him with all the BHPians right in his face.

Wow! Now thats a real Team-BHP drive. For some reason, it reminded me of the 1st Team-BHP weekend drive. The link also has Team-BHPs first entry into Shaadi.com with....guess who?

Looks like all of you had a blast. Great report + pictures. Do all of you down south like light-coloured cars? Theres only like white and silver in the pictures.

Ram_hyundai was last caught sleeping in a Maruti! Next time, You're not going to miss it. Are you?

Where's Vivekji05? Haven't seen anything from him.

As reported by a staff at my office who stays very close to Vagamon; There was heavy dog thru out the day in Vagamon yesterday and day before. It appeared as if sun was replaced by moon in the day. Very chilly and cold too. Roads were hardly driveable. Glad we didn't stay overnight.

I saw that the moment I posted it. But I cannot edit my posts from my phone (It's a recent problem). I was just speaking to Hydra about it.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!
I request you to read the DOG in my earlier post as FOG! Please.

Sorry for not delivering what you expected, I was handling a Steering, a Handy Cam and a Still Camera. So I did not took enough on either of two cameras. What end up with me is some incomplete shots compare to you guys captured. A neat Photo Travelogue by hydrashok well done, Iíve learned some lessens for next time.
Iíve done some editing of whatever I had in my handycam, but I donít know how to post video in this forum so Iíve tried to upload it in to Google Video(1.39min) but the quality is poor, here is the link


Iíve also uploaded a iPod Video version(.mp4) of it for download, link is
RapidShare: 1-Click Webhosting

Small size but better quality, You need apple quicktime (7) free player for play it. Link
Apple - QuickTime - Download

Thank you all for a wonderful trip.

Aha! So that was why you were carrying a big camera-bag.

I just loved the snaps you posted. The one with the VDi in front profile (the first one) and the one of all the cars in the fog are awesome!

EDIT: Just watched the video. Nice work! You've got most of the drive in it! And I liked the RVM idea

Wow! That's great Biju. You'll have to upload to google/youtube to get videos here on the forum. You just did it. I know, it should've been hard choosing between the steering, SLR and digicam. Still You've managed it good. Yet to watch the video after I get home. A big Thank you for all the effort. :
