PaneyJi, am open to all the above options , barring Srisailam. Goingthere again tomorrow afternoon.
How about this place.
[Jungle Lodges and Resorts Ltd]-[Wildlife and Adventure Ecotourism Destination]
We can drive there, look around the place, have lunch and come back.
But I am not sure if this property will allow us just for a lunch. They also have a safari I guess, but time can be constraint.
It is just 18kms from Bidar.

Poll added for your convenience.

Do vote and based on majority, we can choose that destination. however, lets stick to July 10th any date later is too late to hit the highway...

I already feel as if my hand and leg ( steering wheel and gas pedal) synchronization has partly faded away

I am game for any of the opitons mentioned but voted for Medak church and Bidar. Medak church falls on Nagpur highway itself after taking a left from the highway.

Sagar Highway and NH-9 are too crowded to have a good run. So is the Bangalore highway. I vote for Nagpur Highway for a relaxing highway drive.

Cheers

P.S: I guess the Singaporean Welcome Meet is off!

+1 on the Nagpur Highway. Less crowded and a good one to drive on. When the plans are on for a Drive Meet on Nagpur Highway, why don't we do it a good drive meet.

Option 1: Hyderabad - Nizam Sagar
160 Kms Drive from Hyderabad via NH-7
Drive to Somarpet to spend the time near Nizam Sagar Lake. We can also visit the Medak Church as it is on the way to Somarpet/Nizam Sagar

Drive to Allapur to spend the time near Kesaram Lake.

I'm game for any drive as long as it's the same day return! preferably on the NH7 towards nagpur (which is what most have decided in any case)

Been to Medak church a few times, including once recently! nice place ... and one can stop at Sher-e-Punjab dhaba en-route for some tasty grub. Voted for a longer drive on Nagpur highway though - Medak is about a 26 km diversion from the highway, in any case.

Have been following t-bhp meet threads - but havent attended one so far ... look fwd to !

Nice. So everyone seems to be in agreement to Medak ( which also incidentally happens to be a first for Hyd TBHP drive). So lets stick to this destination and stop at Shere-e-punjab for lunch.

If i am not wrong. Medak is roughly about 110kms from Hyderabad. Perfect kms for a decent drive....

Lets start the headcount :-

What : July TBHP Drive Meet
When : July 10th
Where : Medak
Time to meet : 8:00AM
Where to meet : TBD

Confirmed Names
1. Mobike008+1
2. Sabby
3. Milecruncher
4. Fordmanchau
5. Octane78
6. Traveloholic
7. Therealabs
8. Roadtiger
9. Svasants

Copy, add your name to above list and paste it back. It will be much appreciated that you add your name "only" if your truly confirmed

BTW road from the NH-7 turnoff to Medak Church is Getaway country

We can then head out to the Pocharam Lake and have a small picnic at old Nizam's Haveli. We can actually have a BBQ there in the shade. If everyone's game, we can work that out!

Oh! Is it. Then I reckon we need another route to get to Medak or tip-toe our way to the church

And, about BBQ out in the open. It's a big NO.....

Adding Appu who is itching to hit the highway....

July 10th weekend. Why don't you guys drive to the 1st leg of the first FMSCI National Championship in Drag Racing? It is a lovely drive and promises 2 days of super duper cars and fun.

Cheers,
