Beggars can't be choosers.... (no offense to Rudrah - I simply mean that I have to face your comments :-) ).

Remember I left Pune on 6th on personal work, so it will look ridiculous if I take a day off again.

And, frankly, there is no need to make any 'bahana' - all the people in the office (colleagues and bosses) are aware of my famous one / two day trips. (Unfortunately, this year the outstation trips were beyond one week....) So, if they find that I am in my seat throughout the month (except for a few specific months), they enquire about my health....

See, I keep remembering things one by one, to help you guys out.

Next tip, don't forget to get the batteries of your cameras charged - and carry spare battery / memory cards. I am sure everyone will be on a shooting spree - and there is no way of buying batteries in Kaas; similarly, water too....

What say ASHISH Bhau?
MX6,

I had finalized on Hotel Maharaja however last week my daughter was down with viral fever and cold/cough. Just 2 days back she recovered from fever. Hence didnt booked the hotel in advanced. Thou my parents are still against to take her out I thought its worth to visit the flower valley and that should make my daughter happy but sadly in the end we didnt have rooms available there. Hence now opted for Mahabaleshwar and then to Kaas.

Rashtrapatiji, on Mon we called hotel maharaja, Radhika Palace and others i dont recall now and it was full, not today

Eventually i'm visiting Kaas but unfortunately not with you guys. So unavoidable kalti to the Tbhp group but not for Kaas!

Thanks for the minister's post for now! Cant afford this honor! hehehee

I second VRP in the battery episode. Forget Kaas, I walked for over 1 hour with my leg in this condition in search of Duracell. It's terrible.

@AP bhau. Look at bahana's all around! When it happens, I accomplish. When it doesn't it's because of home minister/ parents/ kids/ neighbours/ boss/ ayodhya verdict/ CWG/ nuclear disarmament/ Ball tampering/ what not!!


All Kalti Guys. Take it cool. We always expected Kaltis. But keep the reasons flowing. We need something to discuss between 9:30 and 10 tomorrow.

The link you have included is showing Route 1, not the Panchwad way which you are suggesting.

The second route is the same route you are talking about.
i.e. Satara - Panchwad - Mahabaleshwar (Panchwad is the place you take the left on the NH4, you can clearly see it in the map i posted for Route 2)

@Ashish - You are talking about Route 1.

Now im thoroughly confused.
@Parimal says Route 2 (Satara - Panchwad - Mahabaleshwar) NH4 then Left
@Ashish says Route 1 (Satara - Medha - Mahabaleshwar) Satara Road all the way.

Any bright ideas anyone?

Once again, main concerns are:
Better Roads & keeping in mind im not that used to highway driving + problem free areas (MOST IMP.) (have read about highway horror stories on BHP))

Here is a link to my post with the Routes - Satara2MahabHow?

OK guys,

I will sign off soon as lot of work is pending due today evening.

I will be at Hotel Mahendra tomorrow at 9:30 am APST [ you know, this is ashishpallod standard time].

Baaki baten baadme at the hotel between 930 to 1000 tomorrow as mx6 suggested and we have too many topics to be discussed about cars!!!

Btw, at my place, BSNL dial up network is working faster than broadband.

I have to start working on plans for tomorrow. So I'm gonna be out of this URL for sometime now. I have numbers of many of you. Will catch up with some convoy in Pune then meet the rest in Satara.

I will try to make it by Ashish Standard time. But then, my daughter has the final say. So if there are delays, there are delays.

See you on the morrow. Where do I start the preparation? 3 cds of the comics.

Guys,

We need to decide on the days event as many of us are travelling with family and might need some preparations to be done before hand. Kindly let us know what is the plan for tomorrow, except for meeting at MCD at Kalamboli at 5:30 for Bombers and then reach Satara by 9:30am to meet Teambhp.

Plan so far:

Bombay Bombers - Meeting up at McD at Kalamboli 5:30 am
Pune Peshwas - First Meetup at Chandni Chowk 7 ish. Will wait for 10-15 mins if Bombay Bombers come by at that time (possible considering 1.5 hrs to cover Kalamboli-Chandni chowk)
Next meeting point at junction of Dehu Rd-Katraj bypass and NH4. Meet up with other folks - should be 7:30-7:45 by now

Onward to Satara expected arrival 9:30 and Hotel Mahendra - breakfast and chaha. Aha!
Meet and greet. Decide on sequence and off we go.

Don't forget:
1. Water and plenty of it.
2. Camera batteries
3. fuel/air check

I have got some PMs from pune folks - others can be exchanged as we meet.

See you guys tomorrow.
