This will perhaps answer many Q's

1) Why Bhor (first) > Varandh & why not Tamhini ( first )> Varandh > Pune

Answer :
1) Shivapur Area & the Toll booth there -- better be avoided in the evening ( while coming back ) . People who frequent must be knowing the evening time delays at the Toll Booth & the Shivapur 'Bhel Chowpaty chaos '
Sudarshan sir, I can confirm only if this is a family inclusive meet. Till such a meet happens I will be unable to attend any planned meet!

I agree with the reasoning for the route, but please also note that traffic at the Bavdhan toll naka near Chandni chowk is also horrible late on weekend evenings during the monsoon. though not as bad as the Shivapur toll plaza!
We may need to plan our time better
Are we going to the Ganpati temple in Mahad?
And where do we have lunch?

More questions later

This must be family inclusive/family drive --I have taken it for granted , , even I too 'will have to take' family along .

Yes I am aware of it , but I have chosen a Lesser Evil --- In worst case people can 'walk down ' to Pune from Bavdhan --Its so near so no tension

Let the discussion go on , we will find more answers

Why not ? Let everyone join discussions & have their opinions too .

I think we need to fix this by Friday max

This one I'll have to sit out. Not to be a spoilsport, but has anyone traversed the route through tamhini ghat in the last few weeks? My colleague had been to mangaon three weeks back, and was cribbing about the road - full of potholes and he could only manage 30odd kmph throughout the ghats.

- why do we put cheese slices (instead of cubes) in omelets when we make them at home?
- when will he get to see the car built by dada? (didnt remember Tejas' name, I had to prompt him)
Amazing pics! liked them all. Had a great time at the meet.
I'll get my car in perfect shape as soon as possible. I am taking it even more seriously for the 'junior' now .

  • Total Bill : The cafe owners probably just considered the total count & just added a few zeros and came out with the figure

I was the first to reach the meeting spot Cafe Vohuman.
Last one to reach was Selfdrive with junior.
Look forward to the next meets and hope to catchup with the guys who didn't turn up today.

Just wanted to thank you all for the way you welcome newbies like me. It was so simple and informal. Me and Ajinkya are excited in being part of such a great forum and have the opportunity to stay in touch with you all.

Bachelors , ( technically )

Bachelors ( temporary ) ( Married but enjoying all the things ) ( family-men without the presence of family )

lol. Good that you put this up sir.

Had kept myself off the list, as I might not be in Pune that weekend. But if in case my trip's cancelled, are there any bachelors coming on this trip? A car-less bachelor needs a seat.

Incentive : You'll get a dedicated shutterburg. Imagine the number of pics of you & your car with the ghats in the background!

Hey Vishal,
This meet I could barely manage, as reached Pune late night (actually early morning). We will definitely meet next time, eagerly looking forward to the same, as the crowd is really awesome. About the next drive meet on a bullet always a capslock YES with a font size 72 (provided my professional commitments allow)

@dot, if you are reading this, will your kiddo be joining us too? I have assumed you are coming for this drive meet
anyone else with kids joining in, let me know before hand so I can plan & shop accordingly.
