Talking Some more!

As it may happen, let some more pics from my basket grow out of it.


Time for that I click you, You click me! At the Kalpakavadi porch soon after the arrival.


There goes TRRK and his beloved Indigo Marina (with some unusually upsized and downsized tyres). He had to do some driver duty for his family.
Sir! I bow down to you. You came all the way just to meet us and waited for more than an hour while we kept on delaying. We definitely missed you on the D R I V E ! !


Tables had to be shifted from many different places to accommodate this crazy group of motoring fanatics.
JK is still mesmerized by KP behind his back! LOL!!!


A beautiful fan it was. A S H V I N (I got your name right, ) fell in love with it's nature of all sound and no go!


All are hungry, thirsty and looking at the door for each and every plate as it arrives.

hmmm....not particularly liking to be overtaken thru the left is very right. And if nikkibike told you this it is perfectly understandable - he didnt hear the end of it after he pulled off his trademark "tailgate & overtake" manouvre. I promised to brake hard the next time he tailgated.

My picture session continues from post #104

Another view.


Tbhpians watch their rides pose for the group photos


& when the sun decided to call it a day...


we took a tea break.


Zak is bringing my tea.


It was another great meet rather D R I V E & we all had fun. For me the drive thru that beach road was the best part of the meet.

Now When is the Next One?

Going to have to repeat them again, after the latest round of snaps.

The Chayakkada snaps has a real earthy feel to it, the way the bulb's light is, and the overall light is. I Like, I Like! Great Snaps!

A really nice meet, though I missed the part that I actually came for - the drive along the coast. The lunch got delayed more than expected and then I was worried about missing the train. So had to break off and head home via Karthikapally.

Also, I lost track of the convoy after a few kms when an Alto guy came in between me and the rest - he was learning driving and I had to trail him for few minutes and by the time I overtook him, you all were gone.

Anyway, I plan to do the drive again later. And BTW, it was nice meeting all the kerala tbhp-ians in person.

The snaps are too good. If it is not too much trouble, could you guys please email me the snaps to biju_r(at)hotmail.com ?

The few snaps that I took.

1. The full crowd (well almost, except for a couple of us who were taking the group photos). Can someone put names to all the people in the pic ? I know most of the names, but not all of them. So..



2. Group snap split into two - Part-1 :



3. Group snap split into two - Part-2 :


4. The camera-shy ducks at Kalpakavadi :



5. Meeting organiser (ram) passing around the booze.



6. The starved crowd waiting for the food, with empty plates.



7. mansidea, jkdas, kpzen and ashvin are all ears to what ram is saying.



8. The cars lined up - ready to leave for the drive post-lunch. My Swift was at the tail of the convoy.



9. Another picture of the lineup.


@mansidea, your Scorpio looks awesome.


10. Rear-view of ram's Verna. Loved the sticker - thinking of getting one done for my car too.
