Awesome drive. Something I'd love to be able to do myself. Btw how much did that GPS unit cost?

Thumbs up Thumbs Up to you Travelbug

Hat's off to you Travelbug; not an easy task to drive such a long distance solely! You actually deserve this.

Well i am thinking of buying a new petrol car, right now i have a diesel fiat palio 1.9d , what car would you recommend , A star or swift or the Getz
Can't compare A-Star and Swift or Getz. For me Swift is Peppy and Getz is more comfortable( atleast back seats).

Thanks kb100, I thought of taking picture of that drop on the way back but somehow missed it.

Your averages are pretty good, except for the Surat-Baroda section, anybody could get mired there. If you minus that section, you have clocked one of the best times in these sectors; I can say this as I've done the entire stretch.

6692 KM is some drive on a Swift, great non-stop laps, single driver etc., .... Salutes

Thanks Ramky,

Swift is doing great but suspension got a little softer.

Thats a pretty strenuous drive you have done. Nice details of journey break up. Did you face any issue in your car after such a long drive?

That's good for you buddy but just a question whether you have Delphi nav 200 or Delhi Nav 300. Because nav 200 is 20k and nav 300 is 23K as per my knowledge.

Nice triplog there but given that you'd been preparing for months, I would've reckoned you would have halted for lunch at Sankam Residency, Belgaum. The Belgaum - Kolhapur stretch is the best stretch of road sans any traffic at all.

Also, you mentioned that at Surat, there was a holdup owing to a Tata Safari which fell into the Narmada. That should be the Tapi. The Narmada flows between Ankleshwar and Bharuch.

Cheers

Hi Omkar,

I would not suggest this route although it's shorter by around 500-600 kms as this route is not safe for night driving and roads are pretty bad once you enter MP specifically before Gwalior.
Wish you a Safe Journey.
