Brilliantly written travelogue and lovely pics. That was one amazing journey and I guess you guys had a lot of fun blasting the audio system .

One query though... where did you keep your luggage?

Yup, like Ajmat mentioned most of our stuff was very kindly carried by Sam to Mumbai. however, we still needed one set of overnight clothes apart from the other necessities & the Tools/Spares/Laptop etc. that we were carrying. So, we stuffed the Tools, Compressor etc. were stuffed behind the small cavity behind the seats while the bigger bags were kept upside down over the Amps after placing a towel on top of the Amps so that they did not get scratched.

Here is a pic of when we stopped before Udaipur to check a Check Engine Light issue in YetiOne & took out the bags to let the amps cool down a bit more. But overall, we had no issue of the amps overheating due to two reasons - 1. Decent amount of heat dissipation space was still here in the sides etc. & 2. Because we didn't play the system at higher volumes at all as you can very well imagine given the length of our drive.

To say thanks to everyone involved would ruin what I feel.
They say love your friends and they'll love you back. I couldn't agree more. My friends, (you all know who you are) - have loved me back in every way they could.
Everyone involved, every single person, I would not have managed without you. This project would have never been what it is today.

The Evil Twins do not belong to me. It is a joint effort from a whole lot of Team-BHPians. Let me name some. Just like that.

Autopsyche - for an excellent design and some visually striking work (some of it done in a blinding hurry)

Gunnu, JB, Mukul - for staying up with me all night and installing the stuff. That was hours of hard work and no sleep.

Iraghava, Ford Rocam, Sideways (for your great help and advice and mad behaviour) and Viddy(Delhi to Bombay)- you guys are crazy! I can see you had so much fun.
Ajmat, Rudra, N_C, Rtech, Navin, Steer, TSK, Dippy, Samurai, Rehaan, Porty head, Jaggu, Addy and everyone else for their constant support, concern and advice.
Everyone for the constant phone calls "Done? Not done? What next? Need anything"
Ajmat, Jaggu, Rudra, Viddy (again!), N_C and Addy (Bombay to Bangalore) - all mad people.
Rudra for his sexy dialogues and as good as pornography photography.

There's so much more I want to say...

Sam,

Thank you. It is impossible to express my feelings in writing. I had an absolutely amazing time. I thank you for trusting us with the job of getting the twinns to Bombay.

I spent 4 or 5 days with some absolutely fantastic people.

Tausif & Maria - The sweetest people I have met. They put us up in their lovely home and made us feel very comfortable.

Arush, JB, Gunbir And Mukul - Amazing guys who worked through the night with the installs. Gunbir your jokes are out of this world. Hoping to catch up with you guys sometime in the future.

Ishaan, viddy and Jitu - Amazing company, we should think of doing the raid together, what say ?

The entire support team who kept in touch with us throughtout and encouraged us.

Thankyou all. I look forward to doing this again.

damn man. You guys from the 3 corners of the country have so much fun! I really envy you guys. I wish I was born somewhere up North

Anyways, congrats on 2 things. 1 - A very well written and described experience. 2 - The TEAM-BHP Effort. You guys deserve a salute.

I wish I could have been a part of this, but I feel I already am, by being a proud TEAM-BHP member. Thank you Yeti for the wonderful opportunity to TEAM-BHP
