Have a safe and a wonderful drive guys!

With the rain Gods likely to bless us all, do make sure to carry enough protection gears and, if possible, drinking water (especially with those with children, at least for the kid - DreamCatcher FYI).

Also check your wipers; as a precaution, for those who do not smoke, buy some cigarettes (to wipe the flakes on the windshield to get the rainX effect).

Hey mates! Seems everybody is charged up.

Few necessary reminders:
1. Have at least one torch light
2. Mosquito repellents
3. Enough drinking water
4. Couple of umbrellas
5. Swimming tubes if available

Rainfall is likely to be moderate to heavy along arabian coast for next 2 days - so take precautions while on the beach.

Finally have a safe and enjoyable trip!

There is a sudden change of plan, Alter had gone to fill tank, and the pump guy put petrol in his Safari. He is in Concord motor right now getting the White Elephant fixed, his vehicle will be ready in 2 hr, so I am going with Brandon directly to Yashwantpur, Inder will be there, Alter will reach there by alternate route. So no meeting near ORR, meeting at Tumkur rd arround 8pm.

This was embaressing.Someone delete avijits post

The drive was amazing and so was the entire trip.Had to come to office early so not in a position to post pics from here.
I guess avijit/inder/brandon would be uploading the pics shortly.I would soon come up with a report on this trip so that I can omit the embaressment parts

The beast is fine.Yeah gave him a piece of my mind and did not even pay for the 5 litres of petrol which he was expecting me to pay

But since I did not crank up the engine so it was a petty job to just clean the fuel tank.
The only time consuming part was to get it towed till the service station.

This may be a good reason why petrol price is costlier compared to diesel...u guess it right - diesel cars also demand for petrol..

Jokes apart, Can somebody take the trouble of posting report with lot of pics, FAST.
