Friends, an update:

I had planned to come in my Gypsy for the Waynad drive. Now after a 1000+ km drive in the Gypsy it needs some immediate work to be ready for long drives and also a thorough checkup after an OTR.

I am sure at this point that the Gypsy will not be coming to Waynad and I will be traveling along with Prabhuav for this D R I V E.

Cheers,

Maybe we should also add the type of accommodation + food preferences.

I am coming with wifey, so would need Family type accommodation.

Both me & wifey are PURE vegetarians so would need veg food (simple dal + chappati, dosa, idli, etc would do)

Cheers,

Chances of family making it are slimming down. Will let you know by the end of the week.

An update on the accommodation. On a three-sharing basis, stay would cost Rs.650/person. This includes breakfast on the 8th (Sunday) + 1 more meal (dinner/lunch).

Yes, they do have a no pets policy. Damn! Was hoping for a petogether of sorts!

Please indicate the type of accommodation you would need, ie, single/family/shared at the earliest.

Folks, the weather is going to be great.. so pack your bags, turn on that motor and set course for Wild in Wayanad !!

Default The dogs gonna be a problem.

Since its a no dog policy at the hotel I shall drop him(the dog) off at the relatives. My coming for the DRIVE is confirmed if there is no death in the family. Even if no one from TEAMBHP comes I will be making the trip with family to Wayanad. Will get the GTX along because I fear the Junkindica may not pull up the hills of Wayanad.

As far as accomodation is concerned we are 4 of us and a family accomodation is a prerequisite.

I will join you all from Thrissur or Calicut.

Guys, I am going to start from Coimbatore, can either drive up to Palakkad/Thrissur or take the shortest route from Cbe. I am not too sure about the routes, have to check with veterans like Harrie, who use this road often.

I am open to both routes, even if I am taking a longer path.

CBE-Shoranur is quite a short drive. You could join me at home and we can go together from there. Leave your car at home, if necessary.

Recessions can also be good, no?
