Great! Although, um, sorry- that question was actually directed at hillram!
The other 2 brothers aren't much into cars/bikes so there isn't much interaction with them when I go there.

Thanks Raj for your appreciation.

Ok, here is the final set of pictures wherein we have shooter trying his hand at a kinley bottle target.

We also have Arun trying his hand at angling, he was lucky to trap some throwaways but unluckily no fish

Finally, we drove "20kms backwards" for lunch at the nicely ambient dhaba. Hope you all enjoyed the photo blog as much as i loved posting it

P.S: So when and where is our next meet?.....................LOL

right , now that the pics and meet review is done and dusted ........ when is the next one ?

Before the next meet , may i propose we finalize dates towards a nice stay at Suryalanka ? The APTDC Cottages on the shore were quite pleasing and if we plan early,can even secure them . An early plan could also mean the likes of RR and Himanshu who are eternal Hydies can make it too.

Default Brilliant pics and report

Hi Avi,

Those are great pics and a nice report of the drive meet. Do I detect a change in style? Are your pictures different now from before? Perhaps but, who cares as long as there are great snaps to see!

Cheers,

I am all game, i am all game. How about finding a weekend in Feb'10 and booking the room in advance? This time, no other place would do except "Harita Resorts" of APTDC. What say?

Thanks Nazim and Ravvs. Nazim, you did miss the meet, i pinged you as well, you could have done a dash on your pulsar.

Ravvs, pray what is the style change that you see? Please elaborate? I am clueless

The change is the composition cause Avi is now using a 70-300 Ravvs . No more wide angle ...... and more of "I'm right next to you" types , lol.

Besides ....... he's also captured all the weight I've put on after loosing it in Nov cause od Dengue. Avi .... get back to your 18-55 i say , :-).

How bout Velentine weekend for sSryalanka ? I'm sure when planned in advance it could serve all parties ( bachelors , spinsters and couples ) well .

seeing hillram go with his rifle practice somehow reminded me of Dirty Harry doing his rounds in Magnum Force..

Welcome back Rajesh Bhai. Your presence is sorely missed in this thread.

I wanted to suggest Bidar, but was afraid the others would shoot it down as being done too often.

Boss, that AP to AP drive is your baby for it was your suggestion that we do a GQ run which kicked off the whole thing so please do not stop with reading. Let the comments pour.

Bidar anyone?

Cheers,

yeah, I guess that is it.

BTW, does it mean that we are going to see some candid shots from Avi. I did notice him taking a few pointers on candid shots at the Boats Club meet.....

Cheers,
Another suggestion:
Tirumalapur enroute Parigi. This is the location where the 2008 Jeepthrills off-roading event was conducted. No I am not suggesting an off-road drive!!

The location is an excellent place. For pics you may have a look at these(CLICK ON THE PICS TO BE LEAD TO BIGGER PICS):



The down side of this location is that, the first 50km the route is same as Vikarabad route i.e. till Manneguda, after Manneguda take a left and few KM down the road at the 67 Km(to hyderabad) mile stone take right. This road leads to Tirumalapur. Drive down around 3km to reach this spot. The final spot is surrounded by hills. The location where my Karizma pic is taken, beyond this point you can see step-irrigation in the valley. I was thrilled to see that for the first time around Hyderabad. The last 3km the road is kacha road. You can see that in the last pic.
