That's why I stopped arguing with him right away. We got our difference resoved via PM. SS gets too excited talking cars and doesn't watch what he says or to whom he says, I know he doesn't mean any offence. But diplomacy is something he must learn.

How did I miss these recent posts?

Satya, you should be re-christened as "angry young man" of T-BHP just as one certain "Old Man" of T-BHP.

Whenever a thread is created, its normally created with a purpose, and that purpose is at least not bad mouthing and showing off knowledge.

Some time these kind of replies takes away the interest of others in the thread, I know some of them enjoy these kind of replies and try to put "Ghee in the Aag", but this way the purpose of the thread is defeated. Its better to discuss those in PMs

Anyway, I am coming on to the initial Topic,

Samurai,
Can you guess how long will it take to complete the work for Mysore Highway since you must have seen the pace of work and % of work still left.

I planning to go for a weekend Trip ( near by bangalore ) May be one day long drive to Hoggenakkal Falls. and yes with family. Lets plan a trip of this kind in Bangalore where we can take our Family and also meet with fellow BHPians. What do you say?

cheers..

Spot on, greatDrive. Now lets get back to the topic and discuss Great Drives.

If you're driving Bangalore-Mysore road, try to do it in daylight. There are too many unmarked speedbreakers and abrupt changes from super smooth roads into moon-surfaces.

Breakfast at Tiffany's in Maddur is highly recommended.

They will not be able to meet the November/December deadline. I have travelled this road many times since March and I have seen the pace of contruction. Unless they really speedup the construction, we are looking at mid 2006.

Even my wife was talking about going to Hogenakkal falls. We may be actually going this month with couple of other families. We can combine it with T-BHP drive. That will be a lot people...

Looks like that Zen driver (who passed me and the swift) is a reader of this forum and he has become really mad because I called him crazy. He has been mailing some members commenting about me. Therefore this is what I have say to that Zen driver. I apologize if my comments have hurt you. I may not be as experienced as you, you apparently are much more experienced driver than me to drive the Zen like that, and based on your comments on life experiences you are obviously much older than me. Although I was initially miffed by your comments and replied with some venom. But I think it was a hasty comment. I guess you are just a better driver than me. I hope you'll accept my public apology.

if the zen driver really feels that he was not doing anything wrong (and i believe there may not be anything wrong from his perspective), he should post a public reply on the same. PMs are not the right thing for this.
