Guys, I had a Gala time the whole day yesterday and was GREAT meeting you all. Had lots of fun -- though I am not a drive kind of a person. Thanks to all who dropped by for the meet & to DD for taking the initiative.

Myself & Condor had 3 t-bhp meets y'day. 1st at a traffic junction, 2nd at C-Park/Drive, and 3rd at Hesserghatta lake side where we spent the evening getting lost & found by the team-bhp off-roading gang. They were shooting birds and believe me, i never knew that bird watching/shooting was so much fun with camera lenses like Bazooka's.

Look forward to the next meet/drive. @starter: you RED gypsy is tooo good. I will be honest, it was the main motivation for me to join y'days meet.

PS: I swear, the speedo needle in my Gypsy did not cross 95-100. Boss, my vehicle it is meant to go slow (crawl on rocks) and not go fast, so you guys need to get the speedo's of your cars checked for error.

Cheers,

I swear, i did not know that there are lenses that huge and that camouflage cover for those lenses seriously make them look like some rocket launchers. It was great meeting our offroading group. We laughed our guts out. Siddhu, Viji, Vijay, Sree, Khan & Condor, all of them had a look at the Gypsy and pointed out the differences in the new vehicle. I got to talk a lot of things with Sree on the way back. Once again, Thanks a lot Shahnawaz & Condor, for taking me to this place. It was an awesome evening and i would love to join again. So, please let me know, if you guys are off to such a trip

Default Team Meet Report - 6th Dec 09

It was a lazy Sunday morning. As usual, I hardly had inertia to wake up, especially when family not around. T-BHP was playing in my mind since Saturday night and needless to mention that was the only driving force which made me get up at 9 am, half awake. Was ready for the outing by 10, when got a msg from s3va that he was not joining. Subconcious mind said - what a beginning !

Anyways..jumped onto my li'l cutie Santro and started off for Cubbon Park, Bangalore's Joggers Paradise. Before I could reach the place, got a call from Brraj that he was already there.awe..quite embarassing for an organiser. Reached by 10:50 odd. A white Swift with "Live to Drive" sticker was waiting to welcome us, but where was her master ? Next came in Shishir_bn ..sweating..walking from the farthest corner of cubbon park near MG road. Thts the spirit buddy!

And then there was Starter with his Red Horse - the Gypsy, not to mention the centerstage of the meet, complimented by Khan_Sultan's 4x4. Suddenly there was a surge in BHP and Torque in the team. Khan Saab, Condorji and few others were in full swing for anatomy of starter's Red Horse. Hegdegg even took a TD of the 4x4.

One by one, by 12:00 we were almost 16 people including family of GG and Sajands. Well the master of the white swift was also back by that time, none other than Hegdegg. Optimist too could not resist dropping in for few minutes, despite his family commitments, and yeah..Thanks a lot for the 2 bottles of Slice. The heat was catching up..still no plan, nor destination fixed and Rk_sans, Optimist, Swiftboost, Ravibhat and Sajands were planning to take leave.

@Swiftboost and Ravibhat - Hope you enjoyed your daughter's birthday.
@Sajands - Wish your wife to get well soon.

Quick toss between Nandi Hills and Devarayanadurga and the winner was -
Devarayanadurga. Khan Saab and Condorji were having 3/4th of their legs in the Hessarghata OTR, 1/4th in the Devarayanadurga trip. Because of the OTR timing we had privilege of having them with us till Kamath Lokaruchi on the Tumkur Road. Decided to meet up after the toll gate of Nelamangala. by 12:30 the team dispersed for Devarayanadurga.

The drive till Nelamangala toll, with a lot of traffic, was uneventful, which took almost an hour. Sriraj and Varsha joined us there for a surprise. Got to know Laluji had also set off to join us for the trip, but had got stuck in the traffic. By that time everyboydy was hungry so decided to proceed for the Kamath Lokaruchi on the Tumkur road. By 1:45 we were there and Laluji joined us for the lunch, a bit late - U know Guest Appearance, but with a difference. Food was quite good. Enjoyed the meal thoroughly.

The second part of the meet was taking a different shape with Khan Saab, Condorji and Starter leaving for the OTR. Rest of the team rushed to Devarayanadurga as per plan. Road condition from the Tumkur highway to Devarayanadurga was excellent except a few kms of bad stretch. Sriraj with his Skoda was zooming like a mad horse..others trying to catch up. Stopped at a water body enroute. Aah..the air was refreshing, water was inviting and the solitude was just making the moments ecstatic. Photo session continued for some time. Laluji with his Nikon D90 left no stone unturned in terms of capturing the lively moments. Were about to go back to continue our journey to Devarayanadurga, and lo.. Varsha got wounded by a piece of glass in the water. Got a first aid and she was fine. Reached the first temple by 4:00 or so. Had a darshan and drove up to the peak. Few hair pin bends..and we were at the peak. The view was just spectacular from the top with designer cloud pieces. My Nikon D60 was anxiously waiting for me to give it a chance and it did get its chance. Chit Chat for half an hour, with background music of Sriraj's Loco engine, decided to return back by 5:15.

Way back Sriraj and GG vanished somewhere. Later through Akashvani got to know that they were planning to hijack the whole vegetable market of the nearby village. Rest of the story was quite indian bollywod style...Happy Ending of the day with a memory to rejoice.

Guess who enjoyed the most - our cutie pie - GG's daughter.

Had a good sleep dreaming the next wonderful meet.

Lovely pics DD, nice writeup too. So, next time I would be following SX4 instead of Santro. It was nice to see you slow down when we ( Nirmal and I) were not in the vicinity. Hope to match up to the speed next time. Hope to get wider tyres for my swift before next meet.

Me and my daughter are waiting for the next meet with the silent support from my wife.

+1000 on this. Even in DD santro it was showing 110-115-120 sometimes and we were just some feet behind itself. Moreover we have seen the blast off from Sri's scoda also and at that time the reading was 115. SO khan and spider saab your speedo is having some probelm because everyone who followed you were racing at 115-120.
