Guys, I spotted you at 09:15AM today morning. I was on foot. I tried calling you from behind but your vehicle gained speed. If you're reading this and are still in Shillong, pm me your contact details and I will call you. Maybe we can meetup.

Great to know you guys are heading back. Drive safe!

I'm leaving early morning tomorrow to DC and will be back by end of March.

Cheers!

Hi Ravveendrra,

The thing I immediately noticed is your son. Must be great for father-son bonding. How old is he? How is he taking the trip? Was it your idea or his? (I mean about him joining the trip).

Default reporting from Bhubaneshwar

This is the AP to AP team reporting from Bhubaneshwar. For anyone surprised at our progress, the trick is simple - have as many drivers in the car as possible. That way, each can take turns sleeping/driving.

We plan to leave tomorrow morning and head to Vijayawada for our home stretch.

Cheers,

TeamAP2AP: Tried calling but your phones were unreachable. You guys must be crossing a desolate stretch somewhere near Berhampur now. Looking forward to meet you guys and other folk @ Hyd this weekend.

Good Progress indeed Raveendra, Hopefully you guys should be near Hyd now. Team Driver concept really helps in covering more and more distance in lesser time.

Hope to see some nice pics once you settle down in hyd.

Default Ap!

Hi, we are passing Rajahmundry as I type. Absynth is driving & I woke upfrom a nap courtesy the crazy kamikazi type 2 wheelers here. Thanks to the various bandh calls for tomorrow, we have made yet another change in plan & will drive on post dinner.
