Ok guys here it is -

We are going on 27th Morning

Meeting will start at Mysore Road-NICE road junction from 6 am onwards. We hope to Start by 6:45am, and stop some where Between Maddur & Mandya for tiffin. That is by 9:30am considering the traffic on Mysore road.

By 10:30am we should be ready and head for Srirangapatna. By 11:30am we will gather at Srirangapatna, have a roll call and go in a convoy if possible, towards Hunsur.By 12:15pm we should reach there and topup fuels if reqd.There are 2 ATMs so we can use them also. By 12:30-45pm we will reach the resort. Get fresh and lunch will be ready.

After lunch we will go on our own for a Jungle Safari by road, if possible till Kabini. Come back have evening snacks and camp fire and musical night will be waiting for you. Enjoy till you drop, don't forget to take dinner in between(ready by 9pm).

Morning we should get out by 5:15am, as morning safari will start by 6:30am in Wayanad forest, which costs 600/ph, we will negotiate that if possible. Do a safari for 3 to 4 hr, come back to resort have a heavy breakfast, can have shower if reqd, check-out by 12:30pm, come back via kabini route, meet some where on Mysore road(any of the CCDs), have photo sessions, see eachother off and drive home safe max by 8pm. Start posting your snaps


We are going ahead with the "Save Tiger" posters for those who are willing to carry them on their cars, without any media involvement. Request to all, this is a private event keep this as private. I hope all will agree on this.

We are collecting advances for resort payments, you can pay full or 50% of the total cost (Rs 1000/- per head, excluding children under 5 yr), so you may contact Me or Preetam on how to transfer funds.

Thanks,

Avijit

Hey Asdon,

it will be good if we post the final list, i might be bringing one more person(My Mom) if she is interested, since she will be visiting me in 2nd week of march.

will let you know later.

by the way the safari will be in Jeeps, one more thing how the rooms will be available for Family, since my wifey wanted to know.

i was also bit tensed initially but went freely after some time since it was my first Meet. and i had to catch up some one so was not able to stay still the end.

We plane to take rooms with 5/6 beds or dormatories with 8/9 beds. Now we can put 2 or 3 families togather per room or isolate all ladies and kids in 2/3 rooms as you(all) will wish.

This is a good idea. Asdon as Alter said, even I wanted the poster if you can spare or if it is left over.
Alter good slogan "Anything to save our wild buddies"

guys what about the topic of carpooling? As we want to do something to save the tigers why not start by reducing the number cars traveling to nagarhole? I don't think all cars are traveling to full capacity(at least i know mine isn't).i think this would mainly workout for people traveling alone and bachelors.what say?

No issues from my side, in that case I also might opt for double bed room

But then who are going to stay in 5/6 & 7/8 beded rooms? Some families might want to share rooms, and if everyone is going to stay in single rooms then the resort capacity will not be enough, hope you guys understand what I want to say, I know its an individual opinion but if 50+ heads has to be managed then everyone might not get what they will look for. I know I sound little odd, so comments please

Rocky,

i had mentioned the concept of car pooling earlier, but then i realised that i am in a forum filled with people who love driving! and by requesting car pooling, it basically means asking a driver to become a navigator or a back seat warmer..

thats the reason, i didnt bring the topic again.. i dont ming people joining me in my car, but then asking me to sit in some other car would be amusing. what do you say? would you go in some other car, to support car pooling?
