It was nice to see you guys having good fun, probably next time.

Went to koregaon park finally, but took a longer route via chandni chowk just for the sheer fun of driving

Hmmm, nice I was planning to visit Kaas with wifey and parents. I would be interested to join in Ashish. Missed the megameet due to office timings.

Default Stupidest person of the year award....

Goes to -

Yours truly!

Got to see AP's PM on Sat by about 5 PM. Now, that is something I can ignore at my own peril!! So, wound up my work by 6 PM.

(Have been facing a problem with the car and hence had to ride to the meet).

Reached home by 6.45PM and left immediately. Filled petrol at Talegaon (Rs. 2.50 cheaper). It was almost 7.30 PM. Reached Karla by about 8.00 PM.

Was sure that I had missed the venue. It was pitch dark and not a soul to guide.

Turned back and tried to locate the venue by dropping in at some dhabas on the way to enquire - including Tony-da-dhaba. Surprisingly, nobody had a clear idea.

Got fed up - especially with slow moving lorries without taillights.

Gave up by 8.30 PM.

Missed a great opportunity to meet you guys....

PS - I think the place which was lit up and had a blue and red sign post (a-la a petrol bunk) after the split level bridge just before Karla must have been the venue. Am I right. Thought it was the food mall on the e-way. Couldn't locate the approach road. Couldn't see anybody making way towards it.

If I am wrong, please let me know the exact location. So that I don't goof up the next time...

PS to PS - Wife had the last laugh. It is now proved that without her as the navigator, I am lost!!

Sorry guys could not write yesterday.

I truly enjoyed the minute I left my place. but sorry I had never planned to be there late but the traffic from Mumbai was really bad and it took some 3 hours to hit the express way. once I was on the highway it was me and my ride all the way.

Dhruv- we were the only one who had exchanged phone numbers, hats off to you that you were waiting for people for almost an hour.

Called up Throttle to check the location and he never remembered me from the last meet. I am sure now you will never forget me. This time we spent some good time and hope to see you soon mate.

Throttle and me both agreed that the food spread in particular was better at SUNNY DA DHABBA but it was good to explore this new happening place, only thing the DJ arrived very late and could not shake my leg, though i did a bit with 1self.

KHOJ- nice to meet you and wanna see your modified cedia soon.

AP- you could not recognise me as well. but mate it was pleasure talking to you and thanks for the photo session you did for my ride. I will PM you my email id and please send it across to me, if you plan to put it here then pls blurred the number plate. Thanks for kind word for my ride "STAR CAR".

1self- mate awesome ride and thanks for all the wise advice on alloys and tyres, though I was expecting you will take me out for a spin, but its ok, hope to meet you sometime soon in Mumbai or Pune, will definitely call you.

It was pleasure meeting everyone else MX6, Tejas, Cyrus, Speedy, Rajababu's, Tshirt with number 7 (sorry dont rem your id) and my french beard friend (dont kill me for not remembering ur name).

Finally FIFAN special thanks to you for waiting for me and it was a great idea to leave together, thanks for all the help you provided me on the highway.

All thanks for your kind words for my ride, this will keep my momentum up to keep up the good work.

Wish i could have stayed for long, but there is always a next time.

Thanks for organising this and hope to meet you guys very soon

Guys,

May be it sounds far fetched. I deserve it - for driving the 70 kms in that darkness.

But, do I look like a story-teller? May be you are reaching too much in travelogues...

And, stories are all reserved for work in office

I never mix business with pleasure...

Thank goodness for the petrol bill - shall I scan / snap it and upload it here?

And, besides, it was my wife and my daughter who urged me to go despite the late time - knowing fully well how attached I am to this group.

I really feel bad having messed up.

@Ken. I did notice the call after reaching home. Normally I don't make/ pick up calls when driving. Remember, I called you back when I parked my car and was waiting for Ranjith.Rajaram. When it rang, the phone was unfortunately stuck in my pocket.
I wanted to call back once I reach home, but was too enamoured by the fact that things need to go in to this log.
We shall start working on a T-BHP meet in Pune soon!

@vrprabhu. You caused major embarrasment to me. I mistook khoj to be you and kept on talking!

Yes, we all believe your story. But what made you drive all the way to Karla? This venue is a lot before that. We missed your presence in the meet. But then, Ken got so enthusiastic that in the dying moments he has called for a T-BHP Pune meet.
As a punishment for missing out on this meet, we guess we should let you organise the pune meet!

@Saint. It was fun to meet you too. But what made you think we were professional pool players?
Let us know about your bhopal drive and the delhi one after that!
The guys who took pain driving from Mumbai, I was so occupied with so many in my table, that didn't get much time to trouble you guys. I'll make up by coming over to a Mumbai meet!

And all,
there's more photos of people having bournvita, red-bull, milk etc coming up.

MX6- yes we did had a good chat on the bhopal route and I guess will stick with my old burhanpur route, I will definitely update once I have both the sectors.

Your stance, your look and your accuracy to put the ball into the hole made me think you are a professional player.

Hi Buddy,

It was a pleasure to meet you indeed.

I will be driving the Cedia to Bombay sometime after Rakhi for the mod job. Meanwhile, just to keep myself entertained before the meet I drove to Pune and picked up an original Cosworth end piece for the Cedia's exhaust complete in 'Cosworth Blue colour'. Will match the Cedia's blue to a T. Also the swift will get a Cosworth air induction kit with iridium spark plugs as soon as I come back to Bombay early in August. Lots more planned let us see how much actually happens. Will keep you posted and I also await the link you mentioned.

ab thoda bahut yaad aa raha hai!!!

by 6:45, it was moderate size of @15 guys discussing the cars and k n filters and what not.

the cafe is based on the theme of motoring, the painting/pics on the wall, the tables, the food menu, everything was revolving around the theme of motors/cars/bike/engine/petrol/oil etc.
Mumbai-Pune megameet at Lonavala: 17th July 2010-10.jpg

by the time of 9:30pm, gathering of 32 was having snacks and food with chatting on this and that.

@10pm, some members started to have dinner.

overall, it was good meet.

baas, itna hi yaad aa raha hai!!

i will not post any pics about the meet as all pics are taken with shaky camera and result is disastrous pics.[ btw, you know, why the camera was shaky?]

whatever happened in between, i think mx6 is in better position to describe it.

I remember some members who were at the meet.
Pardon my ignorance if i forgot to mention the names of few.

@mx6
what to say about this man.
I am sure, this sober, intelligent,motivated young man will achieve the success in his career in quick time.
He follows some values[ as every one follows] and i respect it.
Kudos to his knowledge.
One request, please don't be too adventurous during night drive with your family.

vrprabhu's punishment should be extended as '' oraganise the pune meet with all expenses''.
