Damn! We've never had to plan a D R I V E that far ahead - it usually takes a couple of weeks to round up the guys.

Feb 7 & 8 is perfect for me. If everyone says aye!, can we start getting into the details?

Will be difficult, if not impossible, to find slush in Wayanad during Feb, though.

Steer you prolly will have to do some searching for a nice place to off-road in Feb. Off my mind I can think off Karapuzha dam site, precisely you need to try and get to the other side of the dam.

Place is called Nathamkuni/Nedumpaala or so.

Feb 1st week it is then, tentatively. That leaves plenty of time to plan ahead after a boozy Christmas/New Year season!

Should we call for a family meet with wives/girlfriends/ boyfriends/ kids/pets or a greet and gali bhpian meet? Once this is decided, we can look at suitable accomodation and chart out the route with some unexpected you-know-what thrown in for good measure!

It depends on how many people will be bringing families.
We havent heard much from the bangy boys, except KS. More families from there, rather than from kerala.
Greet and gaali sounds lovely!

Default I am in.

If its on the 7th and 8th of February 2009 I am in with family. The wife was livid that I just might have another Team BHP trip all to myself and this time she wants me to take the whole family along or not go at all. Once in a while I have to give in to her. The whole family will be along and that means four of us and a huge vegetarian Labrador too. Rocky the Lab will sleep in the boot of my Junkindica.

Confirmed. Not sure of family as our schedules are all mixed up and unpredictable for the foreseeable future, but if they are in Kerala in that timeframe they will definitely be there. We'll also try to bring a hyperactive and attention-seeking 6-month-old German Shepherd (DON!) along, if he can manage to sit still in the Safari without tearing my sub and our luggage into pieces.

There is nothing very serious about any of the D R I V E s. Other than having a helluva time
