Thank you Suman, for the route guide...and definitely we'll touch base before the meet. What came to my mind is that you/gd-bhai might plan to reach the venue from your offices in Delhi. In that case I was planning to get in touch w/ gunbir.

NH-24 is also closed??? I thought only the Delhi-Haridwar route is closed and that traffic is diverted to NH 24.

No chance of doing that here Suman! Roads closed from 9th to 11th. And in any case with the large number of Kanwariya's with their mob mentality I would like to avoid the risk of travelling on those dates.

The stretch that is closed is Garhmutekshwar onwards Nitin. Before that is fine. Plus, the only other route from Moradabad to Delhi while not going through Brijghat (The trouble spot) is Bijnore-Mawana-Meerut-Hapur-Delhi which as you can imagine is an extra distance of around 200kms. so we need to travel 350kms! And even then it's not safe since in Meerut & adjoining areas the Kanwariya's are present in large numbers!

P.S. As proof of what they do every year, see the news, I think they created some ruckus on NH-8 yesterday.

I was planning for a long drive from 11th to 15th (if you take Monday and Tuesday off, you get 5 days). But due to this Kanwaria mess I don't think either Kumaon or Garhwal will be accessible on 11th :-(

So that leaves HP; Dharmshala here I come :-)

Cheers

Nitin

So 11th it is.. wow..!

First things frist:

1. Location & direction - longitude & latitude should help so that I can map on the GPS.

2. Time

3. Aur meat mein sab chalega - shami kebab aur keema ke alaawa..

Aur zarra head count ho jaye..

Kya baat hai, kya baat hai!

Speedo wale Freak bhai, Thank you. And as usual you are in charge of the Meat again. We still drool over the grub at the first farmhouse meet.


So lets get the confirmations now... of course, I'm IN!
