This is irrespective of whether you are a driver or a passenger.
Hrag, Hi , I completely with your comments and in this case where we may have new co-passengers, respective ego's have to be left at home.
I will like to suggest that the BOSS( meaning HVK,since I believe HE IS THE KING OF ROADS ) should give a do's & Dont's list for all new co-passengers travelling together for the first time. Dont's such as NO Drinking liquor or Smoking in car , Going off route without the permission of the leader, etc Do's list 1) Basic medical kit, 2) All Documents pertaining to Car including PUC 3) copy of Driving license of all such persons who intend driving etc
Names of all participants with email ID's ,mobile nos, HOME nos of near and dear one's( in case of Emergency) to be maintained at all times with the Team leader.
By informing all the Participants of such Do's & Dont's, a certain discipline can be maintained.

While on another issue I wish to know if any help is required for locating hotels in and around Pune/ Lonavala for the 7th or has it been organised already??
Any other help required?? Sponsors

The trip is scheduled to start on Feb 7 from Bangalore, and run for 12 days thereafter.

Overnight halt destinations are not finalised and hotel bookings will depend on place of stay and number of participants.

The costs being considerable, pooling is the way to go, but there have been hardly any pooling plans announced so far.

Originally, the trip was planned with several tbhp meets en route, but so far only the Baroda and Calcutta teams have evinced interest in hosting any meets.

The recent 6 Day GQ Drive has thrown up enough evidence on how difficult the drive can be and the necessity to prepare very earnestly - both the car and its driver.

Count me out folks. Once on the GQ is enough for me. Not interested in doing it twice -- even a stretch.

HVKumar,
Since pooling is the way to go,
I am from bangalore & was wondering if any one would like to join me for the whole GQ or for any particular strech.
I'm driving a Swift diesel 6 months old & just back from a 20k km service.
upto 3 guys can join me.
