BTW, where do you stay in A'bad? My brother stays in Prahalad Nagar & we can meet when I am there.
Hey Nawal. I am put up at Ghodbunder road. I have shifted to Navi Mumbai for a job. Will be here for a while. I am staying at Ghatlodia in Ahmedabad. We will probably coming via Vashi bridge, and connect to the Mumbai - Pune Express highway. Exit at Lonavala and meet at 1st Talegaon Tolnaka. Do let me know if I am missing out something. Any people from Mumbai joining in?

You have a couple of options, 1st, instead of lonavala, take Dehuroad exit(Left side,Immediately after second toll on E-Way, leads you directly to Talegaon toll Naka Don't cross Toll Naka, stop before the toll).

Second one: Join directly at Pawana Dam/ Sunny's Dhaba At Lonavala, as we'll be proceeding Back towards Lonavala after meeting at Talegaon, Saves time for you but you miss the FUN of driving along TBHP group.
Take your pick.

I'm in the tentative list as of now. If I do come, I'd be going directly to Pawna dam to meet up with the rest.

HG, you are already listed as a joinee, so sure, please come and play. Since we are a bit unsure of the road condition from Kamshet to Pavna, please bring your tow rope too (not kidding). That will be reassuring.

Thanks dot. Tow rope permamnently in the vehicle. But of course hopefully it shall never be required...as c'mon the roads ain't that bad, neither is there a trace of a water droplet on the roads these days. Now serious - I am not sure about that patch - is it some kind of a trail or something ?

Try and make it Amit !

Ok. Here's a potential dampener from my side regarding my availability for the meet.

‎62 Olive ridley hatchlings crawl out towards the vastness of the Arabian Sea at Maral. this morning.

Nesting begins again with a renewed vigor. Nests at Velas, Guhagar and Maral in quick succession post a small delay due to delayed winter.

So am now keeping a closer eye on the hatching at Velas that may happen on 12th feb, in which case, I'd be there in Velas instead.

Let me see what transpires.

As of now, they haven't yet announced the dates for the Turtle festival at Velas.

Dude, they deserve some privacy
Dont become paparazzi for them in their infancy
Come to Pawana and take pics of us with anvancy

Sad rhymes apart, how do you know if they will be out on the 12th? Whose ear on the ground is giving the updates? Just checking so that we can also stay informed.

That's an amazing rhyme. Loved it.
Anyway, we don't know whether they'll hatch on 12th. Hence I'm watching their space closely. The egg laying stated last december itself and those eggs are relocated along the coast in batches in various beaches by Sahyadri Nisarga Mitra. Normally, the eggs take 55 to 60 days to hatch from the time they are laid. So the first batch that was relocated to Maral almost 2 months back seems to have hatched and the baby olive ridley turtles crawled to the sea.
Based on the hatching pattern, the Sahyadri Nisarga Mitra will announce the turtle festival at Velas. Till now they've been relocating the eggs succesfully to various beaches.

Check out their website for interesting stuff about Olive Ridley turtle conservation, hatching etc and the velas festival.

Sahyadri Nisarga Mitra, India - Marine turtle, Vulture, Whitebellied Sea Eagle, Indian Swiftlet, Konkan, Maharashtra

Apart from this, they also have a fb group (search for Sahyadri Nisarga Mitra) where they keep updating the status of each batch as and when they hatch / relocate etc.

And Turtles don't require privacy when they hatch. They need our support so that they can survive. I'm not in Maharashtra on 18th feb. So that leaves me with two weekends of potential hatching. the 11th/12th and the 25th/26th. Hence keeping a close watch.

Sure saar, I was only trying a sneaky way to get you to the meet!
Thanks for the info, I will keep an eye out as well and see if I can make some time in my sorry little life to attend this. Or take time out to volunteer some help maybe.

So, after all the "yes" and "nos", what's the current status of the meet? How many are 'in' and how many are 'out' ?

With the "Lancer" coming, I can't afford to miss this meet. So, I'm confirmed. Will be using my own transport, which one is not sure.
