Nice.

Hope you checked the tyre pressure as well. Weather prediction is rain for both days - so tyre pressure and tread depth is more important.

Have fun.

Wish I could've joined too, but a different plan came up.

Also, a reminder - Please stick to the main roads and don't take the shortcuts suggested by GMaps. Those shortcuts have horrible roads and low gc/lwb cars WILL bottom out. Had a narrow escape with the Laura when I visited couple weeks back.

Also, two speed breakers at the foothills, right before the curves start, are nasty. Be crafty when tackling them!

Have fun guys!

Was really looking forward to meeting you again at Radisson.
Yup, tyre pressure will be checked early in the morning. Thanks for the good wishes.

Awesome

For the first time in the history of this group's drives we have husband and wife both coming separately, driving/riding their own vehicles! This is really great and this sets a nice precedence! This is the true spirit of driving enthusiasts! Hats off to you guys!

See you all tomorrow :-)

It was a great overnighter as always. A thrilling drive, a great company, some great discussions about cars, some nice sessions of exploring each others' cars, and of course a nice party in the evening! A perfect weekend. Thanks RSUDARSANAN for organizing this so meticulously! And thank you everyone who joined for the great company!

Uploading some random pictures that I clicked:


An impromptu photoshoot on the way:

Graaja's beautiful 3GT with his trademark cycle racks on the roof (for reference, see his triathlon thread):

Ramgiri's Mercedes C250d. My car next to it:

A random shot of my car:

3-series face off :-) 3GT and 320d:

Another shot of the famous 3GT:

Abirnale's XUV5OO:

How can any team-bhp meet not have car discussions and test drives? We hopped into each others' cars (I got a nice ride in Ramgiri's C250d), and here, Zebo driving my car. He pushed it through some corners in the ghat, and gave us a lesson on how it is meant to be driven:

And finally, a nice moment in the parking lot. Red was the color of choice on this Sunday :-) From left, Abirnale, junior Abirnale, and junior KiloAlpha:

As always, a wonderfully organized drive. The breakfast at Radisson Salem, the drive through 70 hairpin bends, the beautiful location of the resort, nice photoshoot of cars with deepfreak displaying his acrobatic skills while shooting the cars, fun evening with campfire and getting to meet so many TBHPians, a nice trail run and hike on Sunday morning, our Droneacharyas (borrowing the term from Doc_Nikhil) Robimahanta and KarthikK demonstrating their drone flying skills, the customary photoshoot before departure and the sumptous Kari Virunthu at Salem, this was a wonderful weekend to remember. My younger daughter did not want to leave!

Thank you RSUDARSANAN for organizing the fantastic drive, and thank you everybody for the great time.

It was great meeting Speedmeister and family, Mr. and Mrs. KRRaj, Mr. and Mrs. SajiNSalin and Krish for the first time. Looking forward to seeing them in many more drives.

A few random pictures from my side.

Google put us through some really bad roads. The GT took all these roads without breaking sweat!

Some of us (Mr. and Mrs. M Rao, graaja and family, Mrs. AD, Mrs. KarthikK) went for a short hike Sunday morning. We hiked through some nice plantation trails and then also climbed a small hillock. A few pictures from the hike.

Trail through some plantations.

As I and family said bye to everyone at Salem, finishing the drive with a cup of Annapoorna famous Rose Milk at Coimbatore.

How dare I? I reserved the pic for your ownership thread which I read with great interest. And we had colour coordinated shirt too. But now since you said it, here it is

As always, a brilliant write up by you, sir. But how could you not post pics of the Droneacharyas with their drones?!
