Thing is that ECR is kind of unsafe when compared to other National Highways. I'm still not sure about the drive, depends on the availability of the cars and also it might be a working day for me. So, yeah, will confirm by friday.

True, 100 kms does feel (and sound) too small. So probably we should combine Alamparai with lunch and sight seeing with photos at Pondy and round the trip off. As returning too late would make Monday morning office a nightmare! And like I have already mentioned, I have constraints on Saturday too :(

And Anand, don't use Sir, simply call me Aravind (or Auto as my friends call me )

True. Ecr is not as safe as other highways. But otherhighways dont offer the pleasure ecr offers. Plus we are teamBHPians. We DRIVE SAFE.

Monday morning office is always a nightmare sir! ( using sir is kinda a habit for me )
And any plan is ok from my side.
Peolle we need to finalize on the place and date asap since the poll is equally divided. Please pour in your thoughts!

That according to me is a perfect plan. It won't be too rushed. It would mean a total distance of around 300 kms which sounds okay to me. Going to Chidambaram might be a bit of a stretch.

Most importantly the date has to be decided.

Actually yes and I am quite a Petrol-head too, of course, that's why we are on T-BHP right? And what do you have to say about the meet buddy?

Saturday morning to alampara would be great!

Brunch / Lunch at Pondy would be nice idea!

I am going to propose something different and unheard of.

We can have 2 drive meets.

1st September: Trip to Yelagiri and back.
2nd September: Trip to Alamparai -> Pichavaram -> And back. (to Pondi and back is as mundane as going to Sundaram Motors and back for me)

People choose the trip based on their availability and convenience. I don't want anyone to feel left out. We shall nominate 2 people to lead the 2 trips. I suppose Anand can organize and lead the Sunday trip to Alamparai/Pichavaram. Saadat could you handle Saturday trip to Yelagiri?

What do you all think? I am pretty sure some of us can go to both the trips.

@sedated drive
Good suggestion. I think that can be done if the majority are ok with it.

count me in for the september 2nd drive. Sunday suits me well. What we can do is get to alamparai and then depending on the time and how everyone feels we can always extend the drive. I know its not the correct way to plan, but atleast we might have our options open.
