1] Yeah, i also felt that there was no proper introduction.
For next meet, whatever may be delays, we will have proper introduction ceremony.

2] By looking at the post below, there is no trace of old age.
You have rightly placed the names to the faces.

I did notice the White Aria going in the opposite direction with temporary registration. Was wondering whether it was test being done by Tata Motors or some one already bought and I missed launch notices. Looked like a handsome car.

With age also comes wisdom, aint it? The names were right on dot.

BTW, I read in the news that Maharashtra forest department is proposing to have Kaas, and few other places in Sahyadri ranges as UNESCO heritage sites. Hope it takes place and gets known. Thanks to this trip, I explored a tip of the range and next few months will be busy exploring more.

Missed thanking Turboholic, for his superhuman effort. Thanks for telling me about the options in Sahyadri ranges. You are another guy to bug about Maharashtra. Was looking for you before leaving but could not locate you.

Abhinomad and the father duo were rocking.It was nice to meet you folks.Your father is wealth of information. Hope to see you both again some time.

BolBolero, your HP travelogue was fantastic. Could not sit and pick your brain and experiences. Hope to do that next time.

AP,MX6, thanks for your suggestions for my trip. Will buzz you if I need more help.

And the talk about next meet is on already? Keep them coming guys.

Moreover, she was not feeling well since we left home). So we looked for her at the stalls and then assumed she might have already taken stairs. In this haste, me and my dad went right to the top without a single break in spite of his age and my operated knee and damn there she was with Mrs AP.

Now you understand why MX6 got irritated and branched off from Sajjangad car park to lunch and then to Kaas?

The meet was rocking nevertheless, but then from Mahendra, every one went in different directions. Don't want to vent my ire here, but back to my old point. We need better co-ordination.

Ofcourse, we are a learning lot! The next meet, we shall have proper plans/ back up plans.
If everyone's plans don't fit in, it would be better if we congregate, have a proper intro, spend some time together talking, break up and proceed on individual or smaller group plans.

No mincing words here. But I felt bad that most people skipped lunch and that plans were changed ad-hoc due to xyz reasons.

Anyway, this was my prime motive! And this is what I got as well!

and she does beat them all MS and the expression of hers says how happy she is between those colorful sea of flowers.

Moreover, having seen her in person when we last met, I could recollect her various expressions while watching the DVDs. God bless her.

I was delighted to see all of the Kaas' photos from the meet since I had almost prepared to drive up but eventually ended up deciding to stay back.

Would love to see more of them in coming days.

I was tied up with some important duties this morning. Just browse through the entire thread. It seems everyone has enjoyed it to the fullest..

First and foremost it was 'Fantabulous'. I really regret that i missed the lonavala meet. What a pleasure it was to meet u all guys.




@Ashish Pallod,@MX6: It was pleasure meeting you sir. I wanted to meet you both since long time.Finally it happened on Saturday. And as MX6 rightly proposed lets catch up at the tapri meet.

@Turboholic,: It was nice meeting you. Look forward to meet you again.

@anilisanil, pjbiju, @Khoj, was a pleasure meeting all of you. Hope to meet up soon.

@Issigonis, I just loved your Jetta. hoping to see you soon.

@Sprucegoose, Shekhar it was really fun to be with you. Really had nice time with you. Thanks for a ride back to Pune and accompanying me in your little fag breaks. Hope to see you soon with your "Gameover"ed OHC.

@Xehaust, Gagan it was a pleasure meeting you and your girlfriend. I hope you found your way to mahabaleshwar.

@Parimal-g, Without you we wouldnt have attended the meet. Thanks for the lift.
And hope you enjoyed your drive to Kolhapur.

@Nomadabhi, @Gostel, @StarVegabond, @laluks : It was nice meeting you all. Wish we had more time to interact.

All in all it was pleasure to meet all the BHPians and hope such meets would occur more frequently in future.

Oh boy. You managed to capture me and Laluks? That's a great photo and I'm loving it. Thanks a lot for that candid moment!

I managed to batch process all the raw files and convert them to jpegs. But they are still above 2 mb each. So will be loading random photos shortly.

Guys that was one wonderful trip. Sorry I could not post earlier. These days I am personally and officially very much held up. The trip to Kaas thankfully gave me a bit of relaxation.

@Starvegabond - Thank you for taking me to kaas. Your planning and the timings were on dot. I never knew you were such a wonderful driver. By the way your "Michelins" were too good. I enjoyed the moments taxing you joining your heart beat in wishing for Vada Pav and US Pizza in Belgaum. Also the banana bombs we put at the erring truckers . I miss that water vapour song!

@Ashish Bhau - was a very short meet. Definitely we must catch up. I have not done much trips to Maharashtra. Hopefully with your knowledge, I will be able to chart out a plan soon.

@MX6 - Thanks for the DVD. Will catch up soon sometimes.

@Khoj bhaiyya - It was such a cherished meet, but was too short. We must certainly catch up soon. I loved the way you put up your camera, when we were discussing exposures

@nomadabhi - how did you recognise me at Maharajas? I was surprised.

@BolBolero - very short meet, I was in a hurry to find Star.

@Turboholic - Thanks for guiding me to the waterfalls.

@pjbiju - short and sweet meet. How did you recognise us? The KA registration?


@sprucegoose, amit, gostel - hope we get more time in the next meets.

@others - we could not meet, nor I have registered you in my mind. The time was too short. Appologies for that.


Coming to the pictures - I have to admit none of the pictures I have recreates Kaas in its grand splendour. I admit that my skills are still not honed to click such wonderful panoramas and beauty. @Star had caught me several times pondering over the beauty than trying to click it with the camera. I am overwhelmed by the beauty of this place and thank our Creator for such wonderul sights for all of us to behold.

Though most of the time this video was haunting my mind...

Abut the cap Fiat may have to source the same from Brazil, so its better to fil the water till the time, just kidding, will get it done soon, till now its working fine, i think cap is ok.Will post the Pics soon.

@parimal_g, your coolant overflowing with zeal was a lesson for me on how to deal with such events.

Thanks to shekhar, it was his experiment with his OHC to put water, and for me its working better than coolant.
