So I deserve a pat on my back 1st for the pictures part .

Samurai my dads house is in Wayanad and spent a nice part of my childhood days there.School vacations used to be harvest time for us and bang we are there for the next 2 months.I miss those vacations though , hell we have to work now. Nothing beats being a student and the most awaited vacations.

My mom hails from Cochin.
To be precise my house is enroute Kalpetta from Sulthan Battery. Harithagiri is pretty close to our house there.

Samurai & Moralfibre,
I was in that impression that it was better for most of you to go through the travelogue well and also have a nice idea from the small pics...
Now if this is what the majority of the viewers think then from next time I will do the needful...

Thanks for pointing it....

I had done Bangalore to Wayanad on my 2000 santro a year back (was exactly 6 years old then). Pretty good roads except around the borders. About 30kms of it into the bandipur forest and a little after the karnataka - kerala border.

The roads in Wayanad are just about ok, and bad in certain places, but a santro because of its high position can take it quite easily - atleast nothing touches the ground!!

There is one more angle to carrying Liquor in car.
In case of any accident the Insurence companies are likely to reject claims.
I have been told this,but I have not read the fine print.
I dont keep Liquor in the car.
I have been driving long distances for decades.but dont carry Liquor in the car.
And I enjoy my drinks!
As soon as we hit a hotel I head for the Bar while wife
arranges for removal of luggage and Dinner arrangements etc.
Roy you always mention total Kms covered and total fuel consumed,why don't you also give Kms/litre.
Other wise we have to look for the Calculator.
