Guys if you leave at 8 PM from Hebbal even if you take a hours break for dinner you will reach Shimoga in 5-6 hours.

I did a early morning drive last week via NICE road left home at HSR at 5:45 AM reached Shimoga - Ravindra Nagar at 10:15 AM.

The roads are good to drive but if you are driving for the 1st time be careful on some uphills with sudden curves have seen most night accidents happen at such places.

Once you cross Jog and are into the Gerusoppa Ghat the roads are not so great.

This thread is so dead that now I have started having doubts whether we are going or not?

Never ever seen such a dead period when the trip is scheduled in the next few days

Alter Sirji, the thread is looking dead because the last meet we did was with 54 head count, 22 cars and you mind is still full of those stories, but this one becase a micro event in comparison to that, with 6 cars and about 15 heads, don't worry the about the event, its 100% on.

Brandon, you have to drop the idea of taking NICE road as we are planning to avoid Tumkur road section till Nelamangla, the meeting point is Hebbal Flyover, so check the route you want to come by. Then guys where we are having the dinner?Alter do some googling and find so choices for us

I don't even know which route we would be following.Besides I am used to eating from the roadside eateries too

Don't worry I guess lets make the dinner extempore.The first rocking dhaba we find on the way and let the convoy halt there

Folks, I seriously have a bad news at least for me!
I am dropping out. There is personal emergency I have to attend to. A family member has deceased a few hours back :(

@asdon, The manager @ hotel in Kumta (Panduranga International) had called me this evening. The 7 rooms are still confirmed. He has given me the Account number of the bank for advance payment. I shall forward this Cell Number tomorrow, while I shall forward his SMS of A/c number in few minutes.

Was so eager to do this trip :(

Sorry guys this was an unavoidable situation.

This is very bad news.
So now we are down to 4, so Inder, Alter & Brandon should we do the trip now or re-schedule it to some time later with some more participation? I am ready for it anytime, you guys decide and confirm. Deepak has given me the a/c no and other details. Will wait for your inputs

Regards

Guys, just chanced upon this thread. I am actually planning a trip with my family to around the same places on 12th, but not firmed on it yet. Wondering what is the plan from your side as per the dates. If it is around the same time, I could atleast join you guys for part of the trip.

This trip seemed jinxed and I was already having apprehensions since there was no activity on this thread for a long time.


I am ok with any decision you make.Ready to go this weekend as well as ok in case you all decide to reschedule it.


If yes then tank up your rides today itself as the fuel prices might increase post midnight.
