Default Monsoon DRIVE - Kochi

Its evident that we have enough interested TBHPians in cochin to go for a drive.see this thread the preceding discussion
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...g-kochi-7.html (Karting in Kochi)

so, have started a new thread for our next drive. the initial plan was to do it before the monsoons started. but thats not going to happen.

therefore.....
we shall welcome the monsoon's this year with a drive through idukki and ernakulam, and hope that the monsoon repays us by not destroying the nice roads that are now available for enthusiasts.

for a preview of the roads I'm talking about, please refer to this thread
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...ing-roads.html

these are my two choices from the large number of options provided by kochicar.

the 1st one may be a bit too long. but it will be a great drive.

the second one also has an advantage of a trek and a nice picnic spot at the end of it.

where are the other opinions?
tentative date- June 1st

@steeroid and Zak- its only a short flight away. get down here.
on second thoughts-dont come, this will be a fitting reply to your escape to ramakkalmedu.

also please note- this is not restricted to cochin TBHPians- all are welcome.
just let us know so that we can co ordinate better. thats all.

@Tbhpians who are yet to join us for a meet, why the delay?
all those interested, please put down your names in the list.
I'm starting off with my name.

well....june 1st is only tentative. and if you're coming all the way from there just for the drive, I'm sure all of us would be happy to push it back by a week.

just that no one has given their date preferences yet, and the discussion doesnt start till some one actually comes out with a number of some sort.

Ofcourse we can change it to the 7th or 8th.

P L E E A A A A S S S E ! ! !
Make this the June 14-15 weekend. I'll be around too. I'm very much tied up before that.
Not a problem if it's difficult. Well, we can drive again soon when 'm there. I'm coming for a wedding (and a break) by 10th or 11th. Will be in India for a month or so.

Route suggestion is to go up via Kothamangalam, neriamangalam, cheruthoni, thookkupalam and come back via the other route. Or go up via Adimali, Aanakkallu, Nedumkandam, thookkupalam and take any other route to come back. Going up and coming down the same route is BORING.:-)
