Good idea! this would be a great alternative to the January drive meet. we can do the bijapur drive in March/April.

Jan 09 would only be possible for me if its at the end of the month.

@HVK: whats the next step sir? Should we start booking rooms etc etc?
Also I`m planning to drive my Octy RS from Cal to Chn and back, are the roads on that route ok for the low GC due to the RS bumper?

Hrishi, are the dates finalised (7th to 14th Feb) or they are still under consideration. need to plan for leaves from work accordingly.

I think we should take inspiration from the new year drive and finalise these dates.

Lets just agree on the dates and then everything else can be managed around it. Anyway there is no perfect date. So lets freeze these.

Cheers

Ok guys lets not loose the focus. With 1 GQ drive already done lets get into turbo mode and crystallize our plan for this one…We have a lot to take home from the drive the famous 5 have just completed.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...s-6000kms.html (GQ Drive: 2vehicles, 4meets, 5bhpians, 6days, 13states, 6000KMs.)

If all of us are ok with the 7th-14th Feb dates then we can take things further from there - things like daily targets, tbhp meets at the EOD locations, hotels, groups etc.

There is a lot to do guys.

At this point in the thread can a summary be put up about most likely tenative dates for the trip, number of participants, etc.
I & my Safari would certainly like to join this once i can figure out the dates. Did not find a single confirmed date of departure in the whole thread.

I agree with jaysmokesleaves. Lets have a date and then we`ll know if we can stick with it or not.

Just for some perspective, its already 13th Jan. So we have a month. So lets get moving

I will be doing the Blr-Mum stretch as confirmed before. Maybe Kumar sir, Shahnawaz or Mahesh can throw some light about the people confirmed and willing to do it as its still very vague about the members doing the confirmed stretches.
