The meet was great, no doubt. I am sorry I had to leave early. Will put up the pics soon.

I look retarded in the pic! Bapu, could you do me a favour and upload a pic of a log instead?

You clicked me at a very amazing moment!

hey guys,

it was wonderful seeing you all today morning. the enthusiasm was fantastic. 5:30 am wake up was excellent and only 2 members not able to make it is pretty good. It would have been a disaster if only 2 members reached the meeting spot.

I have some pics and i shall be uploading them tomorrow from office tomorrow.

Looking forward to having another meet soon. 5th Dec. is not possible for me as i just found out that I have to go out that weekend.

@bapu excellent pics. btw, how has the group photo? pls upload the same. I dont remember whose camera was used to take that pic.

Cheers!!

Thumbs up

Great crowd + A Beautiful location = One Classic meet. And what fun it was to wake up super early on a Sunday morning
All said and done it was great to get together with like minded car and bike aficionados and the discussions that prevailed were well, enlighting.

Loved every bit of it. Thanks to everyone who were a part of it and made it happen.

Great pics Bapu. Looking forward to more pictures and future meets.

Hello gentlemen,

It is rather unfortunate that I stumbled upon this post just this morning! I would have loved to meet fellow TBHPians. The pictures do paint an inviting tale. However, I believe there is another meet scheduled for the 5th Dec. I shall closely watch this space for the details but just in case I miss out, I have called H@r$h@l and asked him to keep me updated.

Looking forward to meeting you guys

It was indeed a nice meet. This was my first experience of meeting fellow Team Bhpian and it was a good experience. Looking forward to next meet on 5th.

Nice pics Bapu. Eagerly waiting for pics from others.

Here are the pics from my earlier visit.

Picasa Web Albums - Rutvij Shah - 2008 Feb Thor...

May be we can plan again to visit the place in the month of Jan/Feb.

It was a fantastic meet early morning 5:30 AM on lazy Sunday, I admit it was just for the Team-Bhp meet. Other than Team-Bhp I would be "No-No" to anyone.

Looking forward to see the pictures, and thank for them who have taken and uploaded them.

Well, finally we had the meet.

I reached at 0545 hrs alongwith my friend Arun to find Bapu, Rutvij, Roshan, Hiren and Harshal already there. Soon the others joined in too. I guess, by the time we started which was around 0600 hrs, we were a total of 12 people.

We took 3 vehicles; my Punto, Aditya's 4X4 and Achint's Scorpio. It was awesome driving to Thol in the early morning. Aditya led the way in his Jeep. The approach road to Thol was bumpy and full of ditches. I scraped the bottom of my Car a few times and I guess the Scorpio and the Jeep could maneuver effortlessly.

Rutvij, apparently had some contacts at this place and got an amazing discount on the entry fee. It was almost 7 AM when we reached the lake and there were already a few cars lined up. We moved to another spot, a bit nearer to the lake and got out armed with the Cameras and Binoculars.

It was an amazing sight. Early morning chill, the still water, birds fishing and very serene. There were a few people around. We started discussing and clicking away the birds. Yograjsingh and his kid were a great source of information about the kind of birds. He even carried a book about the various birds and it was fun spotting birds, hear about them from him and capturing them in our cams. Then started the discussions about the Cars, jeeps, various Street experiences and we had an entertaining discussion.

We then shifted to the parking spot where we spent another 45 minutes talking about 4X4 and admiring Aditya's ride. Yograjsingh was a great source of information about Jeeps and it was a very candid and amazing discussion.

I had to leave a bit early due a personal engagement, so I started back with by 0815 hours. I guess the rest of them proceeded to a kitli and spent a couple of hours before calling it a day.

On the whole an amazing experience and we also discussed about have a offroading trip sometime soon. I guess, we also have a discussion about having a meet the next Sunday too. It'll be fun!

Some pics from Me and Arun:

Edit: Unfortunately, the order of the attachments went for a toss while uploading! Anyways, I guess those who were there will figure it out.

Sorry guys, could not make it. Looks like this is was a big meet than what we initially had in Baroda and A'bad.

I was in A'bad at my relative's place, but was attending "Confluence" at IIM-A. Next time. But looks like I really missed quite a good meet.
