@Parimal. Incidentally, 2 or 3 of those weekend trips you have been at Pune. And I've not been here then. So make it 7. Let's meet up after 7 weekends. Need to get my nose away from the stench of mula / mootha river and smell something good for a change.
Hi!

MX6 ,Anilisanil could you advice as to which route will you be taking?

Naj

I am not driving my figo this time, will be in MX6' car, time is not yet decided but he will be picking me up from my place in Bhavdhan (luckily I live near the Mum-Pune Highway), we will however update you once the time is fixed. Good to know that you too are joining.

Yes agree with MX need to keep cost low., My new year Resolution to spend less .
Good. Let's take a consensus and go accordingly to the venue. This meet is more to greet members on new year rather than succumb to gluttony (which will eventually happen )

What is this BTC meet? Why aren't other's invited to it?

Hey Parimal, do you know 'Aunty's Ice cream soda' place on the Vadkhal naka ~ Alibag road. I hope it is still operational.
There should be plenty as it's a commercial place. And This Ice cream soda seems a good place to stop by on the return leg before punekars can break off from the convoy, after icecreams!

One last question: Is this a family meet or only us?

Please do. By all means. And let's drag Issigonis. Only he can drag Superselect (kicking and screaming).
And I don't mind a family meet either. But then my parents won't be around this time. So feel free to bring your family. I'll check with my wife on how she is placed for a weekend drive to Kashid.

HVK saar. Please suggest a meeting point for us guys from Pune. We'd be driving down E-Way and branching off at Khopoli and taking the Pali road to join NH17 on Wakan Phata. Is that the same as Vadgal Naka?

Yes saar. Please freeze the time at which you leave McD and when you reach meeting point on NH17. Accordingly, Punekars will plan and join you guys. I've asked HVK to propose a meeting spot on NH17.

Not done saar. Simply not done. Cant' you shift the big fat family function to the beach (or later in the night?)
And we'd love if you drive your fiat down to Kashid.

@Issigonis. It's high time we get to see how superselect comes kicking and screaming.

Bavdhan - Chandnichowk - NH4 - E-way - Khopoli exit - Pali - Wakan phata - Kashid.
We can meet at Chandnichowk and drive as convoy. Since my tires are hard, I'd not be driving more than 80 on the e-way.
We can meet up with Mumbai people on NH17. Watch this space for time.
Do bring your hat.

Yup, it is.

Let me spill the beans out: There was a plan to have a sort of a sub-meet of folks staying in the Vashi/Airoli area at Bhagat Tarachand Restaurant near the APMC market at Vashi and Khoj and Parimal signed up for that. I am anyway planning to gate crash that meet. You are welcome too.

Bavdhan - Chandnichowk - NH4 - E-way - Khopoli exit - Pali - Wakan phata - Kashid.
MX6, No need to go to Pali and Wakan Naka, which is different from Wadkhal naka.

At the Khopoli toll ask for the exit to PEN, they will ask you take a U turn towards Pune and another immediate left handed U turn into the right most toll lane facing towards Bombay. This is the exit to Khalapur. Couple of hundred meters of driving along the Xpressway brings you to a T junction. Right goes to Khalapur and the left goes under the Xpress way and on to join the Khopoli Pen toll road.

The other way is U turn towards Pune, take exit to Khopoli. At the overlap with with Khopoli PEN road sharp right handed U turn on to the Xpress way over bridge and proceed towards PEN.

This will bring you to Pen, Here the choices are either to take the Pen bypass (continue on the wide toll road hanging right) and join the Bombay Goa highway in a T, take left and proceed to Vadkhal Naka which is another T, with the NH turning left towards Wakan naka/Goa and the straight going to Alibag + Kashid. The other choice above was to continue straight into PEN drive through and join the BOM GOA further ahead just before the Konkan rail overbridge.

Trust I made sense.

I think you should also try Nanumal Bhojraj also at APMC Vashi almost the same kind of food less waiting time and about 10-15% less expensive then BTC.

hvkumar,
Would you kindly do the honours of deciding a meeting point and time for Thane,Bombay & New Bombay members as also our probable ETA at Vadkhal for the Poona members to meet us there.

Well, a few suggestions have come for the food part of the meet.

At Vadgal Naka, I am told that the Sudha Santhi hotel serves excellent misal, vad pava and kothambir vadi.

In Kashid, near the Prakruti Resort, there are a few eating joints, a couple of them serving good Maharashtrian thalis and much besides. So I think the food problem is sorted out.

Another suggestion is to go on beyond Kashid to the Chikni Beach, which is a small less-known beach - without any crowds - almost adjacent to the Pallonji Mistry bungalow. Does anyone know the exact location, apparently <5 kms south of Kashid Beach.

I would suggest a slightly earlier departure time of 730 am at McD Kalamboli to meet the messy traffic in the Panvel-Pen-Vadgal sector.

That would mean arrival at Vadgal Naka at 830 am at the latest. We could have breakfast there and proceed to Kashid.

Working backwards, that would mean:
- Navi MUmbai guys leave at least 30 minutes prior to meet time at McD
- Thane guys 60 minutes prior
- Central Mumbai also 60 minutes prior.

Does that sound OK.

Considering it is a Sunday, I guess if you leave Versova by 630 am, you should reach McD comfortably, as early as 715 am.

Food should not be expensive, expect something like Rs 300 per head max, all-inclusive.

Kumar sir, as mentioned I have training session on 8th whole day so not too sure about driving again on Sunday... Is it possible if I can hitch hike with some from Thane gang?? and honestly I am not that good at group driving on long trips (Or should I say I don't trust sanity on open roads )
