I have seen Hotel Anjali on the road between A'Bad and Himmatnagar - is that a decent place - it is on NH8 itself.

Given your commercial acumen in selecting and pinning down hotels, any help further down the route is welcome.

Combining with the Desert Storm is not a bad idea, let us also explore whether such an option is a good idea.
I WANT to join, there are lots of issues to be sorted out before I finally join in.

About economic options; I am trying with YMCA; its near Sarkhej, a little off the loop, but good for fellow-ship, stay etc., place must have lots of space for parking and a decent restaurant. Any budgets?

Will get back to you about Anjali hotel.

About Baroda, we will have to depend on Baroda based ppl.

I tried reaching Vadodara members. Here is the list of Vadodara members who are willing to be in the meet. The venue for the meet is not yet finalized. Out of all the members, joie-de-vivre ( Dr. Bharat Patel ) is ready to continue to drive till A'bad. Further planning will be done after the final dates are declared.
More details are welcome.
The list for people coming to meet near Vadodara is as follows:

1) aaggoswami ( myself )

2)the_maassk

3)Anurag_Gupta.

4)joie-de-vivre ( Dr. Bharat Patel )

5)Ravi Kashyap

6) jeepswithsimple

7) Jeeper

I do have one more plan but will declare later. It is a bit compulsive for Vadodara members, so will be declaring it if necessary.

Are we close to a date as yet?
