Jokes apart, Can somebody take the trouble of posting report with lot of pics, FAST.
I would have taken the trouble but had to come to office very early, so will be doing the uploading thing in night, sorry guys for the delay, but the trip was super, and roads were the best part of the entire journey, those were butter smooth on NH 206.

Hey Guys, this is by far one of the best trips we had.

The roads were a drivers dream. The cars were sticking to the road like vacuum, with the neat asphalt. And day and night the skies were dark grey and it was raining most of the time. And one can imagine how beautiful it would be in a forest when it rains.

Pics will definitely come soon

The funniest part of the trip was while comming back, we planned an extempo round from Tumkur to Bangalore and all will agree that the Zen driver will think 10 times before he hits the road in night again, hold on guys the secret is not out so soon

Same here Inder.

Your daughter is so adorable, especially with the way she pouts her mouth.

The drive was awesome, the race was great and the breathtaking view.

Sirji please wait till tonight, will post the pics, Alter is writing the trip details, Brandon was very busy behind the camera so expect some gems from him, Inder was so cool that he forgot to take his camera also(along with cash), And we are all thinking about this - the Hotel we stayed was very good, but why someone will put his money to built such a big hotel and then name it PANDU?

Default The D day

Missed it the last time and no way was going to miss another long drive meet.But driving 500+kms non stop that too in the night
without sleep seemed a bit insane and not very pragmatic.
But what the hell.We are the ones living on the edge.Since when did we start doing sane things

"Surjit we are not paying you to sleep in the cube".I guess its the newbie effect.I wake up.Its my new manager of my new company literally standing on my head.
Hope next time i come back to your cubicle you would be buzy working.
Damn!! Caught again.I look up.Its 2 o clock.Few more hours to go.To heck with few more hours.Let me go and tank up.

Leave office and straight away drive to the nearest bunk.Damn its a BP.I always had a disliking for BP petrol pumps.
But who cares.

The pump guy - "Yeshtu Sir"

Me - Poora tank bhar do.And I start walking away from my car since I had a cigarette in my hand and did not want to blow up the entire pump.
I still remember that akshay kumar khiladi walk towards the main road and then running back as rajpal yadav when I realised that
the idiot was pumping petrol in my beast's tank

Damn the moment i woke up in the after noon and saw my new managers face I should have known this.Bad Bad day.

Me - Oye ruk.Pagal hai kya.
pump guy - yen boss?

Me : bhaiyya diesel vehicle hai.
pump guy - to bolna chahiye na.Humein kaise pata chalega.

Me : haan main hi gadha hoon.I instantly call up concorde motors and ask for their tow vehicle to be sent.

pump guy : lekin 5 litres bhar diya hai.paisa to lagega.

Me : Oye twadi ma ki aankh.Jo mera itna paisa barbaad hoga uska kya.Pump ke manager ko bulao.

Pump guy: Wo nahin hai.khane gaye hain.Lekin aapki gaadi bina paise diya pump nahin chodegi.

Me : Ok.I lock the safari and start leaving on foot.To rakh lo ise.

Pump Guy : sir yahan se hatao.Baaki vehicles are waiting.

Me : I am not going to start the vehicle.Do u understand.It has petrol in the tank.

while we are in the middle of arguments the concorde guy arrives.leashes the safari and off they go with another guy taking control of the steering wheel.

I also leave after giving the pump guy my visiting card of my old company.

Smart boy !!

To be continued....

And then I sms avijit ki bhaiyya apni to lag gayi.You guys carry on.I would have to miss this meet.

But as usual Avijit being the brilliant organiser will not take a NO from me.

Avijit calls back instantaneouly

Avijit : Bahut badiya kiya.Sabaash.(And I was cursing him for applying salt on my wounds. !@!@!@#)
Me : le lo ab tum bhi.

Finally I said that I would call him back from concorde.

And it happens that due to my newly found technical knowledge and few threads where owners had commited this mistake of filling the wrong fuel
and learning the moral to not crank up the engine , I am saved.

It takes just an hour to clean up and my safari is good to roll.

I pack and dump everything and collect my fiancee on the way.
And we catch up with avijit,brandon and their family near mahadevepura.

And then the accent and safari start rolling eagerly hoping and praying that we will soon be joined by a beemer.
We reach yeshwantpur crossing and wait for inder with gleemy eyes.And then he arrives with his wife and a barbie doll.
But what the flick!! Its a swift.Damn Inder.Where's the beemer.

But then it hits us.The wheels man.the wheels.His swift had one of the best Lenso alloys that we had seen around.A dual tone combination of
white and steel/chrome.Looked awesome.Bangalore Section Meet - trip to Gokarna via Jog falls-_mg_3888.jpg

After the introductions we are start to roll.

Unlike other trips, this time no one wanted to race and prove his carhood..No showing off this time.

Everyone was driving in sync with the head and tail of the convoy swapping
positions at regular intervals.And after some time which seemed like driving for centuries I had a look at the trip meter.Only 150 kms.Wow!! are we rolling on our stomach or what.We stop at a tea shop.Have tea with ciggy.

And we are on the roll again.

Time goes on and our eyes are all fixed on the road ensuring that no act of carelesness happens on the roads and we do not end up in the accidents
in india thread.

The drive continues early into the morning when we are nearing jog falls and inder goes mad.
His swift suddenly disappears like a rocket and we are panting and puffing to catch up to him.Meanwhile the sun rays have started to
hit the horizon and the view is getting amazing second by second.All of us have a scenic drive till we reach jog falls.Only to see that there were no falls at the Jog.Only a what we can call a small drain in fluid mechanics.
