Default Route for Cochin / Trichur Gang

All times are for starting point

5.30 am
Cochin - Trichur (Nikki, JayD)

6.30 / 7.00 am
Trichur - Shornur (+ Dr Pull, arvindwarrier)

Breakfast at Shornur? Or Trichur?

7.30 / 8.00 am (9, if you're stopping for breakfast)
Shornur - Perinthalmanna (+ Steeroid)

9.15 / 9.30 am
Perinthalmanna - Pandikkad - Nilambur (Direct)

10 / 10.30 am
Nilambur - Nadukaani - Cherambadi - Meppadi - Kalpetta

From here I dont know the route well enough to put suggested timestamps.

ETA - about 2 pm, so we do have some slack built-in as the distance from Nilambur to Nadukaani is 37, and 59 kms from there to Vythiri (or is it 59 for Nilambur to Vythiri). If we leave Nilambur by even 11/11.30 am, we should be there comfortably.

@hvk - am joining from Shornur, not Palghat.

59 kms from Nadugani to Vythiri. Little less if there is a direct road (as rjstyles69 said) to Kalpetta without touching Vythiri.

Confirmed - Breakfast at Shornur (if you dont mind veggie food) since JayD will be driving the Fiat (Dukkar) from Cochin to drop it off home.

Sir (with due respect) the route that you spoke about is existent. This route is generally taken by people traveling towards calicut to avoid traveling all the way to Kalpetta and deviate again.

If we were traverse your route we generally reach chundale and from there on towards Calicut.

Would a Bhaiyyaji Munshi qualify?? Strong arm tactics for recovery can also be arranged!

Yaay! We have the chief accountant of Team-bhp this time too. :
Guys! I'm officially out of this. Had different ways planned out to make a secret bang this time. But nay, it isn't working out. Will have to wait for another month.

Enjoy! Take loads of pictures. Don't mise on having fun. Once done, post a good report here according to the forum rules. I know there'll be lots of pics and scenes I'll never be able to see.

Wish you guys all the best!

Welcome, Dr Madhavan! If I'm not mistaken, this is your first D R I V E / Meet?

Are you bringing your pug(s) along?

We now have 2 Docs on the trip!

Has kpbolero confirmed yet?

No. No.
He was part of the first Tri-State meet in Ooty. And wow! That Baleno did some circles around the cars. It was amazing!
This time if he's gonna bring the pugs, there'll be lots of photo ops I suppose.
