Whereas Yelagiri is kinda midway between Chennai and Bangalore and is practically possible!

I did not know we were planning a twin-city meet for a single day, that is why I was thinking of Yercaud : I was thinking it would be a stay-over. So it is not a case of mistaken identity (I know quite often Yelagiri is mistakenfor Yercaud and vis-a-versa )

Yelagiri should be Ok, I guess, for a single day meet.

What is John's ID in TBHP ?
Sir, which route did you take? The villipuram route or the GQ to Krishnagiri and then left there? And how much time from Chennai to Salem - My guess is not less than 5 hours!

2. The john I know is esteem_lover. you should be able to PM him. BTW. He is a good organiser!

I would be interested too, let us have some options for dates; this will help everyone decide sooner. Mid-April sounds Ok to me : there is a holiday on May 1, thursday, which could also be a possible date.

Headers what ever MillionSwords is saying is true. yesterday i traveled from salem->krishnagiri->bangalore and it hardly took 2.5hrs in my peted elantra.

I was surprised to see that there was no potholes in between Krishnagiri to salem stretch.

Sir, Would like to know the time between, Chennai to Salem..via both the routes..

Salem-Bangalore [ silk board ] doin in 2.5 hours is fair..but Chennai to Salem is a different story altogether!

I regularly do Chennai - Bangalore in 3 hr 45 min..[read as Poonamalee to Silk Board] The either side last mile is a good two hours

My point here is that if traveled from Chennai->Krishnagiri->Salem roads are not bad at all. Regarding the timing and the route he has taken MillionSwords can answer this.

between Yelagiri or Yercaud i am game for twin-city mega meet .
