Yelagiri sounds good.
ECR is ok, I've never been to pondy he he.

Still Yelagri sounds more like it.
I've not seen where to get off from NH46 (to Yelagri), I was looking for it when I was driving down from Bangalore direction, Missed it I guess.

Sir, Tada, Pulicat is a boring option. We've been there once and were completely dehydrated!!

What say Nitrous, Narayan, ex670C and others who joined me on that mad drive?

Hmm. From what I heard, the dehydration cannot entirely be blamed on the place, but on certain fluids that you imbibed.

Anyway, I am OK with Pondy or Yelagiri. Anyway I guess things will firm up only after track day.

Tentatively ok for 11th April. Pondy or Yelagiri. Drive/entertainment options wise, Pondy gets the vote. Climate wise Yelagiri gets the vote.

We need to ask the mods to change the poll options. But before that, let us throw around some possible dates so that we have a few options that can be used for the new poll.

11th / 12th April seem to be the most feasible dates w.r.t. the poll. Is anything happening or has the plan gone stale?
