Good. So where do we folks from Bangalore meet/assemble? Dakshin Honda? at 7.00 am?

Also, folks do bring in essential items fro yourself & your car - such as car jack, spanner etc..

As I indicated to PatchyBoy, my status is tentative. As soon as I'm done with work on Saturday, will start and drive down to Yercaud. This may mean I land up late at night but I'm hoping none of you will have a problem with that.

Rajan,

I think you will regret for calling us 'Annas' when you see us in person


Any plans of meeting somewhere after Krishnagiri and we going together from there?

That was not meant in the literal sense . It is like calling Bangy BHPians as Bangy Boys.

Cheers,

Rajan

Rajan! Mission_Safari might have really taken it in the literal sense . This term was coined long back and its a respectful one too for the chennai gang.

Have fun guys, have to miss this one to sort out some important issues @ the home front and hence have to miss and am sure this will turn out to be a good one.

For once i thought i earned respect without asking for it and here you come with a clarification to destroy my short-lived belief

Just wanted to set the stage for a fun filled meet discussion given the fact that we are only five days away from it.

Get the 4x4 truck there. I am tempted to bring in my Gypsy -- in case I see terrains like the one below:

Would love to do some off-roading there. But if I am the only one with a 4x4, then .

Saar, i guess you forgot the quad bikes.

Now you see you are not alone.

Rajan sir, did you talk the resort folks on the costs of hiring a quad bike?

Condor, according to the railways' website we would be landing in b'lore by 6:30 am. Thats the earliest we could make it.
Now how far is the breakfast place for the railway station?

Have fun guys. I could not get the home ministry's assent for this one. So unfortunately have to skip this meet.

Looks like Benny boy & Mike from Bangalore would be making it to the meet.

Have to appreciate the spirit of the 2 Andhra-garus (Deccan Chargers ) from Hyderabad - train-pooling to Bangy and car-pooling from there with condor. You guys are hereby nominated for the TBHP green-earth award 2008.
