Your plan looks allright , but I am afraid its a very tight one.

I was there on the same stretch 3 weeks before and you take a minimum of 3.5 ~ 4 hours from Gokarna to Jog falls even though its only about 120 KMS. I started at about 1230 Hours from Gokarna and was able to reach Jog only about 1630 hours ( 2 stops of 10 minutes in between ) because of the Ghats. There were a few clouds at that time of the hour on the way. The road from Kumta to Gokarna was dug up at several places and not really motorable at the speeds mentioned by you.

Instead Murudeshwar would be a better bet where you could enjoy the beaches and the fantastic temple veiws. The beach at Gokarna is very steep at places and pretty dangerous.

A 3 day trip would be required to cover the schedule as mentioned by you comfortably and you would enjoy it better , I mean enjoy your drive better !!

BTW, my ride was on my GETZ CRDI..
Hmm, but I also did Gokarna, and was able to do it in 1 hr 40 min, anyways it does not matter much as we are reaching as per plan at 8am, so will not make any difference if its 9, we can enjoy the western ghats on the way.

@Shiva - The initail plan was for 2 nights but due to some contraints, doing it during weekends, but if you want a part can start on friday morning, DD is looking for a partner for Friday morning start, as he wants to avoid night drive.

BTW guys, the footie action starts on June 11th. Difficult to choose between one of them!

@raj.barcode - yes I know Raj, but the spirit of the meet is so high that who cares about rest, remember, before the Nagarahole trip you told, you need to take rest till 5 after the drive from Bangalore, but you were on the Jungle road just after Lunch

Arsikere - Shimoga - 110 km 2 hr
Shimoga - Sagar - 72 km - 1 hr
Sagar - Jog Falls - 30 km - 0.5 hr
Jog Falls - Gokarna - 113 km 2 hr
If the total journey is about 9.5 hours of night driving and reaching there in the morning; all rest included will be afternoon not much can be seen in murdeswar,one needs at least 2 days of full time to see murdeswar and also water at jog falls at the time will be very less if i am not wrong.

if you guys are going for 3 days then it would have been better.

Default Would miss it again

Guys,

I would have loved to join; but if you have finalized on 11th June weekend; looks difficult for me. I have guests at home and I will be out on another trip on the same dates. (June end or July would have worked for me).

I will miss one more team-bhp meet!

Anyways, Wish you all the best & lot of fun !

So Asdon and all the other Bhpians, 11th June it is!!

Guys, IMO what really matters is all of us getting to meet eachother and enjoy one of the most memorable drives together.
Place comes close second as it would most likely matter to our better half's or GF's!!

Guys, count me in as tentative. Very excited to be on this trip, but currently working in chennai, and if we are returning late sunday night, driving back to chennai after that seems very taxing.

Another factor is me coming to bangalore first ! :(

Sirji there is no rule as such, as it will be an overnight trip, so come prepared, have a good sleep before start up as it will be a all night drive, roads are pretty simple but if you feel you can get lost, there will be a convoy of few cars, going at arround 80kmph, so tag along, and as you have already confirmed for the trip, we will let you know about the expenses for accomodation, not sure if food will be included or not, but you will get the info on 6th, as on 5th we are all meeting to decide the final plan.

Krishna,
When you arrive at the meeting spot before the drive , go to Avijit and bend down and do the "Jahapana tussi great ho" salute(the 3 idiots one) to honour the trip-in-charge.
Avijit is very particular that the first timers to the trip do that.

Alright before you really take it seriously,I was just kidding

Can you give an approximate amount/structure coz the expenses is one of the deciding factors for me this june .
I can only confirm after that.
If you can't give it before 6th, then count me in tentatively.

The total Trip will be 1200km, so according to your car's milage calculate the fuel consumption, keep 1000 bucks for food+(I am taking it on higher side), another 1000 for accomodation(this is approx, original will be on the lower side). I hope you can figure out now

As far as my limited knowledge there is a landmark hotel and few resorts around..like Om beach resort, then few huts around like namaste cafe, Hotel Gokarna International .

is it Kudle beach or the Om Beach ?
