Oh Yeah, I agree things have been surprisingly serene on this thread for quite a while. Lets infuse some action into it, what say?

I propose a Hard Rock Cafe meet again on Sep 22 ( Thursday) when the live rock band "Paravayu" pays a tribute to the legends " Pink Floyd"

Heard them a couple of months ago and they are very good

Guys, its "really" been a while that we did a drive meet. How about 100kms drive upto Jadcherla ( or little beyond) on the NH-7 and settle down for lunch in one of the various dhabas?

Even though, I will be hitting the same highway twice in October with a proposed plan of WA covering 2500kms in Oct'11, I am still proposing, as I desperately need to hit the highway at the earliest

Let some thoughts and consensus flow in..............

My aunt is arriving from Delhi on Oct 15th and technically speaking I should be spending some time with her. But, since she will be staying with us for a month, i dont mind skimping half a day on Oct 16th.

I am ok for Oct 9th and Oct 16th and no other weekend in Oct'11 works for me. Let the majority decide the date for this drive.

Let's now all chime in with respective confirmed dates from these two options.....Fair enough?

I'm all for a highway drive, after having dealt with traffic every day of the week, followed by lunch at a dhaba. I have never travelled South of Hyderabad on NH7 but when going North there's Haritha and Malgudis near Kamareddy. It's 118km from the city and involves going through a toll gate so is quite a lot of distance to cover. Beyond, there's Kuntala Falls but getting there involves driving through 2-way roads and a road construction area after Kamareddy followed by another toll gate after Soan.

For shorter meetup drives, there's the outer ring road from Gachibowli/Kondapur to Shamshabad but I don't really know if the roads have traffic now; I believe there are some restaurants in the Gachibowli area too (I haven't been there in a few years since the construction). A drive on the PVR Expressway from near Banjara Hills to Shamshabad devoid of 2-wheeler traffic cruising at 80 kmph may not be as much fun as it's less scenic and there's nothing but concrete on both sides but on a cloudy day it could be fun to do too and when heading back to Nagarjuna circle there are a couple of restaurants too.

Not sure if there are any takers for this idea but if a meetup is planned early in the morning (before 5am) a lot of places in the city have wide roads suitable for meetup drives and later the group can meetup for breakfast.

hello Nitin,

Welcome to the Hyderabad Team-Bhp meet thread,

Hyderabad drive meets happen very often and have been to places like srisailam and suryalanka as well,

Apart from our monthly drive meet where we go a minimum of 100 kilometres in distance have lunch and return.

Some meets which we did recently are Nagarjuna sagar,bidar,warangal,nagpur highway and etc.

By the way all drive meets start between 8-10 am and end in the evening.

Request you to have a good reading of the thread to get a better idea about our meets.

Last but not the least, post #1000 on the thread is by me

Welcome to TBHP Hyd. We have already done what you have suggested quite a few times and monthly drives with this group has become a tradition and as Arcot mentioned, its a nice drive for 100kms-150kms each side have lunch and return back to hyderabad the same evening. And, all such drives usually happen on a Sunday

I am sure you'll enjoy the Oct 16th drive.

I concur this idea. Is Arcot joining for the drive? If yes, surprising..lol

And, if he cannot come for this drive meet due to some very valid reasons, he can wire transfer the lunch dough to any of us and we can party on his behalf

Alright, seems like Oct 16th seems to be a good idea for this drive meet.

Adding a few drive regulars who hopefully wont say No !!

Thanks for the info; I didn't realise the trip ends in the evening. I'll make sure my lights enable a comfortable return before confirming my attendance. I drive an ancient Esteem (2004 Di) similar to the black Esteem that made it to a previous meetup.

BTW, does anyone have a blog/web album (Picasa etc.) of the previous meetups?

Nitin, Search for Hyderabad Meets and you should see many threads with pics of the meets. All the pics are psoted on the threads. Also search for Escapede to Srisailam and also for the recent Suryalanka Trip, which should also give you an insight of what to expect on one of those amazing Over Night Drive Meets too

Not much action here in terms of confirmations. Hmmm, looks like hydeez are losing interest in drive meets.

Sad !
