Oops! I missed this thread. I was in Pune last weekend to attend my cousin's marriage. This was my first visit to Pune. Had I seen this thread before, I probably could have adjusted my time according to your trip. I arrived there on 31st and flew back to Bangalore on 1st.
PS: I caught viral fever on 2nd (my b'day) and here I am typing my first post after recovering :-(

Voted for Panchgani + Mahabi -- Lavasa/Mulshi is a little boring as its just a drive and back. And amby valley on weekends is a mess nowadays.

I might not be able to make it. Planning something with some of my other friends the very same weekend. If that does not materialize, I am in. I will let you know accordingly.

Time to revive this thread. The drive is happening and we are going to Mahabaleshwar.
Leave at 7 from Chandni Chowk. (Chandni chowk because it has the closest access to Katraj tunnel). We will be very punctual this time and the latest that we can wait for people to assemble is 7:15 to 7:30 am. If you miss it, catch up on the way.
Reach Panchgani at around 9:30 - 10:00. Have breakfast at Lucky's in Panchgani market. Have Milk shake at Satara Milk center in upper market. Go to Table land for a photo shoot. Leave Panchgani say at around 11:30.
Leave for Mahabaleshwar stopping at Parsi point first and then anywhere for some scenic views. Reach Mahabaleshwar and kill time or drive down to Tapola which is about 30 kms from Mahabaleshwar? Nothing special on the Tapola drive though. Come back to Mahabaleshwar at around 1:00 pm and have lunch somewhere. Drive back by 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm and reach Pune by 4:00 pm.
I need a final head count and people who are getting their cars.
I am coming as a passenger with Karl or Shrivz.
1) There might be members bringing their cars and wanting a contribution for fuel / toll in case you decide to count in as a passenger. Please fund yourself sufficient for these expenses if demanded.
2) Since there are quite a number of confirmed first timers, I'd recommend reading this thread.
