Alright, updated the time to 9am. Since its such a short drive, going too early would also not help too much.

Plan is to drive till Vikarabad town and go beyond till the lake, spend sometime there. Photo shoot etc.

Then on the way back stop at a restuarant for lunch.

We should be back home by 3pm.

@Spadix, we are going through Gandipet route. So you can probably meet us at the junction where ORR meets since you will come from hitec city side.

Sounds good. I'll reach the ORR junction at say 9:30 am. I still prefer an earlier time but I get your point -- there's no point in you guys staying put near the lake for 4 hrs given that you want lunch on the way back. I'll hang out with you guys till around noon and then head back home.

I just hope it doesn't get too sunny (doesn't make for a good photo-shoot) and that there's at least some cloud cover like I've been observing in the afternoon the last 2-3 days.

Regards,
spadix

Checking in for the latest. 10 mates are coming probably 9 cars.
Would have loved to see Raveendra zoom past in his super ride ..
But we still have an Annihilator in white ..

So is it going to be 9 am when people start from home ? we are in Hyderabad .
Is anyone traveling with family ?

Looking forward to the meet tomorrow.

Despite the scorching heat and one of the most bumpiest and tossing you sideways throughout with some really bad patches in between, it was a fun drive of 200kms door to door.

As usual, we started pretty late due to waiting for Vmedury and then some drama with Neil's Fiesta dying down in peak traffic jam at Rd.No.1 Bhills and we had to pushed it to side of the road and abandon it outside CARE Hospital and also due to some confusion with Alton and Alok who were waiting at Gachibowli end of ORR while they were supposed to wait at other end of it ensured we were out of the city around 11am.

For the first time, I had the courage to hand over the keys of WA to Ravvs for the onward drive until Vikarabad. And, we blasted through some horrible terrain with one terribly close call that we came out of it fish-tailing at a good speed. It seemed there was lot of drama from outside but, inside it felt as calm as a coma. However, while returning with me behind the wheel the WA went through a pothole at high speed with its under belly hit with an abnoxiously loud noise made my heart go in my mouth and drilled some sense into me to slow down..hehe! By far, this was the worst hit it ever took till date.

After spending some time at the Vikarabad lake with good humoured banter wherein some of us tried out the massive boot space of WA. It was time to hit back towards hyderabad with a lunch at "All Seasons" enroute with lovely trees providing complete shade from this harsh sun.

This drive meet was a mixture of good food, great company, laugh a minute riot (most of it due to some crackling anecdotes by Appu) sprinkled with bumpy and bad roads and hot sun.

Now, allow the pictures to do the talking.
