Had a meaty meet. Enjoyed to the core and like everyone said,had some pretty colourful events too. Now i'll have to go to Trissur to get my bag which i somehow managed to forget at velubai's car.
owe a ton to the organisers for arranging this mamoth meet.

RoopakR -Those tips from Ram's sister made it presence on the second day. Vichu was driving a lot better.

And those who are anxious to know what happend to my car [ coolant leak] .It looks like a faulty water pump and some leak in a hose from the coolant tank.The car is in the garage. And guess what? the new brake pads have lost 70% of their thickness in 550kms .Thanks to all those who drove my car.

your car was good for a relaxing drive but i had trouble keeping up with rams sister as we all saw on the drive.

Veelu and all others (Zak, Ripper listening?), sorry for leaving without a "bye. see you next time". So let me first tell you all a belated "bye, see you next time" . Again really sorry for this. Actually we were planning to leave when we stopped for that turn to the offroading climb. But last minute we dcided to go with you guys expecting a small drive, but didnt expect such a big offroader/climb. I didnt want to try that climb as we were getting late to drive back. It was poor me driving all the way from resort to Tvm and I wanted to reach before rain/night. All guys were down with hangover and I was pushing hard with some last modules of energy somewhere kept to drive back. Thankfully the flying Redfire car did a wonderful job and we reached just before 6.00pm.

Its no big deal. there were moments during that little offroading detour that I wished I'd taken the endeavour. but made it without any underbody damage,thanks to some excellent spotting work by maserQ ,malludude and ezee123(my passengers). but had plenty of wheelspin and frying clutch.

as for the drive back home for thodupuzha. i was so tired that the drive which normally takes 1 hour 10 mins took 3hrs.

looks like the drive report will take some time, because of all the censorship required before posting



EDIT- evidence of how tired we were towards the end of the drive.

That is all the usable pics that I have. Am saving a few special ones for something else.

Vids will follow soon, though I cant guarantee timeframe.

Re: the mosquito, there is a good chance it might have been

You guys had the best time ever! We did miss a lot
We (Akhil &Manu) actually felt bad breaking up from the formation
Once we reached back home, we had a little time to think about it and we came to the conclusion that that was one of our stupidest decision we ever made cause we never wrote the LAB exam! Damn missed it for nothing
And its was superb meeting all you guys california,jayd,riper,wishva and the thrissur guy who was sitting next to me(forgot the forum name)
