You could try going to Guntur via Nagarjuna Sagar. I hear the road is absolutely lovely. Never driven on that road, though.

Ani, since the numbers are increasing exponentially, you may have to book the entire hotel and maybe some more rooms too

OT:there is some connection between mc ,suryalanka and sonia gandhi.

everytime he decides to go there sonia calls him to delhi
Great memory, RR! I do remember Zen91 seeing him with Sonia.

And MC had also volunteered to receive a parcel at IG Airport from someone in Avi's family.

Would be out of this drive meet mainly because of wife's sisters wedding day approaching fast and we need to be here to take care of few things. Regret missing this meet but would definetly join the next one.

Have fun and enjoy the drive guys.

Milecruncher, I dont think anymore takers would be there for this sun, sand and beach weekend vacation.

So it should be safe to close the window. Any last minute entrants can arrange for their own bookings for stay

Amidst all this I would request all to kindly note one tiny detail.
I'm alright with car-pooling; but no one other than me is going to drive my car...
I'm sorry; but thats an absolute with no negotiation...

That makes two of us with the same mindset!

OT--How come your posts count shows as a meagre 2,even though you've made zillions of posts?

Three, but with a twist, as my wife drives the car and she's a better driver than I am.

I don't like to hand the car to valets and I can see the look of disappointment on their faces when I deny them the chance .

But I can't avoid having someone else drive it when I hand the car in for service :(.

Regards,
spadix

Well said !

For that matter, show me one team-bhpian who would willingly hand over his car key to someone else to drive? I dont think so as only car fanatics reside on this forum.

So such a mind-set is not un-common

Coming back to topic, looks like that is going to be the final list for this drive.

Btw, to discuss the agenda for this drive meet, shouldnt we meet for dinner or something on this saturday? Perhaps, Hotel Ebony where they have an "All Inclusive Offer?

What say?

I have conflicting emotions on this. The logical mind says : "Heyy, it is only a car, a mechanical thingy." The heart says: "Shove off! I don't care if it is a mechanical thingy - it is MY CAR."

The heart normally wins and I kinda get selectively deaf when someone asks me for the keys (another reason why I hate the idea of 'button start'). That being said, several people have driven my car(s) but, they are all excellent drivers and people with a deep respect for cars.

Ebony sounds good and I might just pop in for a bit just to catch up. BTW does 'all inclusive' include the goodies in the lobby?!

Cheers,

Unhappy A sad update!

Guys,

Looks like the Getaway will not be available after all for the drive to Suryalanka drive (Updates here:http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/suvs-m...d-getaway.html (Do I really need the THAR? EDIT: Booked Getaway!)).

So all reservations for the Getaway are hereby cancelled and we will need another car. Can't take the Nano as by the time it reaches, it will be time to head back!
