Kozhikode drive:

We welcomed:

- Mrs_Bean and junior, making their debut

- AkshayS, back with us on this drive.

It was a delight to watch him push the Alto to its limits over hill, dale and plains.
A far cry from the tentative Fiesta days, four and half years ago, when we first met at the very first overnighter, the forerunner to so many thereafter...

Kudos to:

- 500ContyCruiser for his marathon drive from Dharwad to join us at Kozhikode
- cmiuc for his signature arrival at the drive destinations, time/distance no bar

this time the indefatigable duo made a synchronized arrival.

Over to the pictorial:

As always yet another amazing outing! Chief really has a knack of finding the right places and organizing these meets. And his reward? Putting up with a crazy bunch like us! Since the chief has done a great job of chronologically capturing the essence of the trip will try to fill in with some of my pics too (Good time to test the new attachment process).

Special Mention Pearljam received the best driver of the trip award. He received a certificate from the Kerala State Police, sadly the rest of us abandoned him when they were giving him his award

Early morning 4:20am start and only 1 coffee down so far so camera has not warmed up yet.

Chief at the head of the table making sure everything is in order, this was at Mercure Mysore and the spread was really good.

Thanks chief, for a wonderfully organized overnighter!

My personal highlights of this trip were:
1. Akshay. He underlines the fact that it is not the car that is slow, it is the driver.
2. Managing to stick to schedules despite a few hiccups on the way
3. Evening unwind sessions, where we discussed all manner of topics. In particular, the history and evolution of Team BHP and its rules.

While I am not a photo taking type, here are a couple from my end.

- AkshayS, back with us on this drive.

It was a delight to watch him push the Alto to its limits over hill, dale and plains.
A far cry from the tentative Fiesta days, four and half years ago, when we first met at the very first overnighter, the forerunner to so many thereafter...



The pleasure was all mine - Got to experience Driving a Slow Car Fast Syndrome for the first time and had the time of my life! (As part of an un-aging group. ....)

Thanks to Ravi for organizing amazing meets all these years that have made my Fiesta days a "far cry". I'm really, really glad to have taken a chance with that very first overnighter in an untested new car amidst an unknown group of people! Long time back indeed.......

And as always -

Here're a few of mine (although some really good ones failed to make it under the 4.00MB limit)

Looks like you all had a great trip this time as well. Thanks for sharing.

I don't know how I keep missing these posts before the drive occurs. I've long wanted to be part of at least 1 such drive, so I get to meet all you wonderful people and experience convoy driving. I now try to scan T-BHP Meets page every once in a while to keep an eye out on the next Bangalore meet. Have sent a PM to the chief as well.

Eagerly looking forward to the next one!

Kozhikode bhpians need help!!. My sir's car, a Ford Fiesta 1.6, is stuck at University of Calicut. to pick the car came all the way from karnataka. Due to lockdown we weren't able to crank the car even once. Now today we see that it has a big issue with electrical system due to which we aren't able to take the car back today. We are towing it to some mr. Nitin who is supposed to be good at Ford cars in the area. Now our pass ends today and should leave by max 1:00 pm today. What should we do? Stay back and take both the cars or leave it with mr.Nitin and pick it up once the lockdown scare ends?
