I think the core team should carry a large card - might well need to be a very large card - and all t-bhpians on the way can sign on it with a message. Just a suggestion.

Btw, for people who were looking at sponsors.

I saw the news in yesturday daily that one guy (a firm?) is looking for advt on private cars. The car owners will be paid for the #of KMs they travel. The ads will be pasted on the car sides. Forgot to note the website.

Any one here?

Arrow High time for the itinerary!!

I think now a next step needs to be taken. An itinerary!! Reason - it will need fine tunning by local / adjoining area t-bhpians. Further, if we need to exchange further thoughts regarding the activity (what, how, when, who, where, why, etc), we could finalise the things well in time.

Feb-Mar is a better time, now that winter has set in. Roads in Orissa are also on the mend and the Surat-Baroda road is also much better.

I think we already have the route xls in this very same thread from HVKumar. We need to put dates and meet locations to it and we can take it from there.

Seems like a quick meet to discuss this agenda is needed

Guys, just did a small calculation. Assuming a average speed of 40kmph and driving only 12hours a day, this is what I got. Around 12.5 days to complete.

Should be possible right?

If we can do the same here, then it would give some more structure.

Time to start the countdown for the GQ Drive in February.

Suggestions for Start Date - in February 2009

Who is participating, and in which sectors?

Where are we having the meets?
Pune?
Mumbai?
Baroda?
Ahmedabad?
Jaipur?
Delhi?
Kolkata?
Vijayawada?
Chennai?
Bangalore, for the finale?

Who will volunteer to organise the meet in each of these venues?

We need suggestions for hotel stays en route.
