Get well soon Star.
I am happy that I could bring some cheer to you

Thanks Star for the ratings and compliments.

Try to go after the rains, it'd be nice. But the climb up and down is very tiring, even today my calf muscles are paining.

I'll put up the distance and time log tomorrow for your reference.

The message on 39th hair pin bend means Lalu's got his own forest! I meant Lalu Prasad Yadav.

Going by the theory of Star, I must have atleast 20 Trees in my house - a need which I have fulfilled unknowingly

He he the edit took away my oddball request to you asking you if it would be feasible to take Dashy along on a day trip the next time around. so here I just typed it back guess you cannot keep neither a dog lover nor the dog down for long.

NOTE The quote in my prior post above attributed to GTO is a mistake arising out of my harried fingers trying to beat the 20 minutes edit limit, kindly ignore the same. GTO's correct quote is reflected in this post. Thank you for reading this.

Administrators/Moderators Kindly delete the post above & if you do so please also take away the NOTE above & this line too. Thanks.

Hey thanks khoj. And thanks for reminding me of that introduction

I am not very sure how the people here would have taken it if I had Dashy around with me this time. Definitely Goa is a good place for her, and I need to find the resorts which allows pets. Club Mahindra unfortunately does not, and my time shares are with them.

What the hell! Guys taking bath in Undies same as Hogganekkal, would be ridiculous to go with family or lady partner. Is there any water body around Bangalore where couples or families can enjoy without undymen?

, Let them be.
There was enough space for you, if you ignore them.

On another note, there were more ladies than these fellows.

Thanks nandans

70 is officially marked. After that till the temple, there are over 20+ hairpins too.

But all these hairpins are small ones

Nice photos Laluks. Well I thought you owned a Civic Tafeta white but the pictures are of your Red Swift. Is the Swift the second steed in your stable ?
Then about the photos. Well they have come out nicely. I especially like the black border you have put. I feel it really brings out the photos contents.
