I totally second that. One place where you can sit, roll, drink, eat and laugh your guts out and add to the noise pollution..

As long as it is not something similar to the last meet at Zucchero's where our Ishaan was just around the corner and from there took him a cool 45+ mins to walk-in..

can we have a proper 1 hour drive to some place with "natural" scenic beauty, enjoy the drive, take some nice pics of our drives...

spend maybe 1-2 hours at the location , have booze - on the way back have food at some good dhaba - take some more snaps and drive back home...

can some one suggest some places like this ? -
based on what i heard, i can suggest

1) sultanpur bird santuary - somewhere hear hero honda chok - NH8 -apparently there is a good resort also on the way - i think pataudi's...
2) sohna sulfur springs ?
I second that narayan, that's my perfect idea of a meet.

GD, you seem confused. Anyways we were wondering what happened to you. We thought that the fosters had gotten to you big time.

Excellent idea - only issue is, with the summers already here, driving post early morning is out & I don't see too many people gathering early morning. A late afternoon meet-up may still be possible; if we want an open stretch where we can take pics of our rides, Surajkund should work? Then we can drive on to GK II

Drinking out in the open.....dunno, I'm not comfortable; if there is any scenic place that has a bar & restaurant, I'm game. Somehow, drinking out in the open tends to get too boisterous & then god knows what altercations etc we may get into. This place called Pataudis that you mentioned - does it have a bar?

Don't forget contributing to the environment by reducing fuel consumption. I like the idea.

BTW KD can you throw some more light on this


I guess we all can meet at somebody's place in gurgaon, where we can park our cars, and then clamber on in One 'BIG' Car. That ways we can call it the 'Krazy Car,' coz we will all be crazy petrol heads in it.
Ya thats a fantastic idea to avoid no oil leaks and brake fluids, tyre pressures cheers:

@metropolis

I think KD meant that lesser no.of cars will be needed if 3-4 Bhpians are in a 1 car so lesser the fuel consumption.

For a longer route we can even hit on the Surajkund - Gurgaon - Delhi road

Lols

I think this is most applicable for you. Hope your ride's ready by then, and if not i'd be happy to give you a ride IF you are in gurgaon.

I Second the idea of the drive and then move towards a place where we can get booze and decent 'khana.' After all driving is one of the most important aspects of a T-BHP meet.

GD and confused ??? i dont get it as GD is the only one in NCR with clear cut views and theories i.e say the difference between Excess and Surplus.

Anyways,i now think you all are getting a bit haywire now.

Just keep it simple and plan for the meet in the evening rather than driving etc etc

my 2 cents

Thanks pankaj for the clarifying the statement.

@ himanshu: the route posted by you is truly a long one and I believe its scenic as well, but can't say much about it, coz haven't been on it myself. I would definitely love to follow you guys on it. My bet is that it would be one helluva drive.

Amen. But let them drive around for a while if they want....and then reach the watering hole. In any case, given the amount of time you waited around last time for Ishan, you could have driven to Agra & back
