Exclamation Pointers #1

Had some offline discussion with some members on the phone today. I would like to make some pointers here.
  • It is an overnighter DRIVE meet since many are interested.
  • People are coming from far cities and states. So it would be better we get back to Cochin by Sunday afternoon.
  • We will have to do a lot of driving on the first day and less on the second day.
  • We will be organising a good and comfortable stay in a friendly resort.
  • Families are most welcome.
  • It seems our bachelor crowd is more well behaved than the married ones here.
  • We will have to share the accommodation and other expenses amongst us. Please be prepared to pay something near to 1000Rs per head. (Final amount will be announced later).
  • If anybody is running short of cash...... please contact RipperGeo or Ram_Hyundai!!

The route is being finalised and will be soon posted here.

Hi Steeroid Saar,

> Will you be coming with us to Idukki/Munnar?

Definitely not for an overnight stay trip.

Why don't we finalise the route and day?

Edit: Since it is an two day trip, count me out.

Default Final route and Itenary.

Ok.

Thanks to all for showing good enthusiasm and support.

Let me do the honours of revealing the final itenary and route.

Day 1
Vytilla - Muvattupuzha - Todupuzha - Topstation - Kulamavu - Painavu - Cheruthoni - Kattappana - Elappara - Kuttikkanam.
Accommodation is being arranged at a Tea garden estate in Kuttikkanam.

Day 2
Kuttikkanam - Vagamon - Todupuzha - Muvattupuzha - Vytilla.

As said earlier, we'll have lots of good winding drives first day and less on day 2.

I'm currently sorting out the best places to take breaks in between the route.

Guys,

This thread is really getting hot. I would like to join for the following reasons:

1. Need a break
2. Meet TBHPians from Kerala
3. D R I V E

I will bring my wife along. Can somebody help me with the route from B'Lore? Planning on starting early on 14th morning and reach there by evening.

Cheers,
Rajan

We have already quite a few drop outs due to the 2 day plan. Its only fair that we let people join us for the 1st day or the second as their schedules permit them
