Me and one of my friend, bachelor party, so all we need is a clean bed for each and ofcourse a clean toilet. Tent/Dorm/Double Room/single room anything would do.
BTW, I've two seats available in my car, anyone wish to join in is welcome. But be ready to be in the slowest car as I'll be stopping whenever there is a photo op and sometime these stops become bit lengthy too.

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.
Just one doubt, what time are we going to start from NICE-Mysore Road junction? 6.45AM? Are we going to be strict about the timing? It will take an hour or max 1.5hr to reach Mandya. And if we start even by 7pm that means it'll be around 8.30AM max. Or are we going to stop for photo-shoot or something? And it's better if we decide about the stoppages for breakfast/food/fuel etc.
For breakfast we have the options of Kamat Lokaruchi, McDonalds, Shivalli (next to CCD) etc. Let's decide on some good place without any parking problem.
We can have some sync-up points instead of driving in a convoy. (The breakfast point can be one such point). Srirangapattana turn can be the next sync up point. And next one may be Hunsur turn towards Nagarhole. Why I'm saying is because not everyone will be at the same speed and to keep in sync in a convoy all the way will be a pain. Just my two cents.

@Kaushik - Thats what we have already deciede, we have 3 stopping points. reason I gave 9:30 because of the midway photo opportunities, heavy traffic, smoke break, nature call.(Lalu has a good experience of facing breaks due to team member's natural breaks) and everything you can think of during a journey. If we reach before time good for us.

And starting at 6:45am, well you must be mad to belive me

6 am is the starting time, just wait and watch at what time the 1st car arrives on the spot. Talk about being the slowest of the lot and you will find me at the 1st place

That means I cannot join in from Electronic city entry, and better to get in from Bennargahtta road?

@laluks you can join in from electronic city junction but when you near gottigere the road ends abruptly and you have to take a diversion to a small road on the lake bund which is not well marked(you might miss the turn there if you're not familiar with it). so better to join from bannerghatta road.

Thanks rocky. Bannerghatta entry is better.

The deviation you told - is that aright turn and some patchy roads which finally exits to bannergahatta road? I remember once being on that. That time the road was horrible. If its the same - how is it now? Is it relaid?

oh you already used horrible? I have to find new meaning to call that road as for the current condition.You can via E-city, there is a road from back side of Wipro office which connects to BG road and then NICE, I usually use that road to go to NICE road.

If I'm coming, I'll be alone.

So, any guys with whom I can share a tent/bedroom?

Or am I too late to enter? Have the bookings already been done?

@laluks:yes that's the deviation i was talking about. It was relaid but i have not traveled on that road for the past 3 months now(as i don't want to pay for that stretch of road until its completely finished) I usually take the bannerghatta road entrance.
