You have a green zone. I dont. The D300 doesnt feature a full-auto mode, so it makes you work hard. That is a blessing, though - it has forced me to learn stuff and do some reading before I start shooting.

I have one steer, which is any way in my Scorp. But not good for perfect framing. I think, ripper will also be carrying one. Better not to increase your baggage weight.

This thread is going to be flooded with pics.

If you guys are using tripod I request you to keep ISO low. I expect a lot of good shots from this trip. Steer has his new camera now...So.

Will confirm in a day or two.

You have a back-up option too now Veelubai.

Our plans have been finalised (sort of), we intend to leave Coimbatore early on Saturday (14th June 2008) morning and should have space for one more person (3 from Cbe + 1 free). You can either get my mobile number from rippergeo or please PM me if you need my number.

20% overbooking is normally okay as some folks may have last-minute issues that hold them back.

If everyone on the list does turn up then we will need Zak's tent and a mattress each in the two trucks (Scorp and Safari)

Zak was talking about some alternative arrangement in the tea estate next door?

Zak - where are the finalized financials?

This thread is already 18 pages and nobody seems to be discussing about it (or did I miss it)

What about booz guys ? is it arranged at the resort, is it available at kutti, OR should I get it from B'lore. Please respond fast, I am very anxious.

cheers:

You have to join QuickSilver. Please. That is the most convenient option as of now.

You can take your car too as somebody from his car will give you company for the drive.

We haven't yet! Our backup plan was always there to rescue us.
Thanks and a very big applause to Ram,
Now we have 11 + 3 rooms extra. Yayyyyyyyyyy!!!!
We may even get more as per necessity (We're working on getting more if needed).
