Hi CK, its great you again fell in love with that car. I like Esteems or any high revving petrol motors of that kind. You really need taste, affection, skill and a love to the narrow high revving powerband to drive a machine like that. And oh boy the fun, when she redlines is awsome and never ending. I am glad to know that we have such petrol heads with us. Sorry CRDis

Your drive was excellent, cool calm and always keeping a steady safe distance. I respect you and your lone crusader. Keep that baby, if you can.

Hi CaliforniaKnight,

> trrk and all the others (I am sure I have missed many names)who made it for > the drive -THANKS, for making it so special.

I hope to be part of the 'drive' in the future. I have just been there to say hellp in the past two occasions.

I was planning to drive upto the lunch location this time. But since the drive started late, I cancelled that idea.

Thanks for mentioning me as well as the photo.

Talking Please id yourself

Hey guys. First of all, I want to aplologize for having such a bad memory for faces and names.

So in a bid to improve my memory, please fill in the appropriate team-bhp handle for the corresponding number. I am not filling in the less sure ones to avoid embarassing myself further.

Thanks in advance cheers:

Guess I was the only guy to drive up alone - 6.5 hrs one way - everyone else had passengers. Madness I guess!

It has its advantages though. Its amazing how clear my thoughts are while driving - got my quota of thinking done!

I am all for "two nights and one day" kind of a trip. An overnighter is just too rushed!

Hey! That's really welcome KB.

Only if we had come to know this earlier, we should've left you with the KPBOLERO for some days man! No rush at all.

Guys! I was travelling this week. Will continue with the rest of the report in some time.

Talking SummerSands resort and lunch!

Me and family reaches Summer Sands and we are busy with selecting the thingys for lunch. This is going to be the last meal we will all have together. So, I try and make it as good as it gets and as easy for everybody. No upset stomachs/whinings/unwanted exhaust noises while everybody drives back casually to their cocooning homes.
I assure the restaurant captain that our group is somewhere busy in the meadows and they can take up to one hour before everything gets ready. So, the captain is a bit relieved too. Otherwise, making a lunch for 25 crazy BHPians in a jiffy ain't that easy he knows from the previous experience!

OH MY GAAAWWWWD!!
I hear a truck pulling in to the resort premises. Followed by some other well known cars.
Did I say 1 hour before these guys come??? MAN!!! What happened to the Meadows' tour??? Did they forget about it and tried following me?? Who was the navigator??? Many questions bounce up and down in my mind.
I try and explain the captain about some goof ups and ask him to get everything ready A.S.A.P!!!

I confront Mr. Steeroid and ask why are they here so quickly and he turns my face towards the sky and I understand. It was drizzling at the meadows and they couldn't manage to get out for a tour. So, they slowly moved on to the resort where they could atleast leisure around! Well! Good decision taken.

As you guys may know, there is a beautiful pine forest near this resort and it attracts quiet a huge crowd. So, why not take a stroll around??? The question sounds good to many and many screw up their faces due to the rains.We ask the resort for some umbrellas and they happily provide us with 4 of them (Maybe, they wanted to keep us away and busy till the food gets prepared ).

Some are interested in getting HIGH!! Yes, last night's HIGHness went down the drain for many. But now there was a problem, this resort has no bar license and they seems to follow the rule. So, no booze to buy and as you know, all the booze from last night went to the KERALA's finest! Somebody becomes a saviour and bounce up with 2 cases of beer stocked up somewhere hidden in a car's boot. They all now get together and the open the Kaar-o-baar! The resort doesn't allow boozing in their building premises either!! This time it is Steer's Safari doing the duty of the bar and entertainment system.

Iraghava is trying to get some beer sense into the most photographed head on team-bhp.

Others moved on to the PINE forest with the umbrellas and some even had fresh guavas which was contributed by a BHPian monkey. It didn't rain initially but slowly it started drizzling again. But it was great to be back again in this Pine valley.
