We need a long weekend for that, as Belum / Gandikota is a good 8 hours from Chennai.

As republic day has inconsiderately fallen on a weekend this time, and the next long weekend is Pongal I am afraid we have a bit of a wait ahead of us for such a long drive.

Please pm me your cell phone number and let's chat about this.

Once decided - you could post this on the Bangalore meets threads as well? Closer to Bangalore than Chennai, so Bangalore BHPians might be interested to meetup.

The nearest long weekend is in April when there's a good possibility of 5 days around Mahavir Jayanti and Good Friday, after taking a day off. As Gandi and Belum will take a day each, this sounds like a worthwhile agenda for that time period.

Let me know about lunch/etc meetings, please. Especially if in OMR/ECR areas.

Breakfast is tough for me, but I am sometimes up in time for lunch!

What about a drive and meet up during this Pongal weekend?
Not sure about the others but I'm off on Monday - Tuesday.

How about we have that long, long time pending Tom's diner drive?
Tom's being in Vellore, maybe the Bangalore bhpians could make it as well?

Cheers

Bhpian ksmrsm, has a place at Navalur in the OMR food street. Maybe we can have a meet there, and regarding breakfast being tough, we are on the same boat!!

Yes - ksmsrm (Sreeram)'s dhaba in the OMR food street at Navalur or our usual other places - Andhra or Boat Clubs. All good options.

Meanwhile let us plan for Tom's Diner on the Sunday after Republic Day. Does that work?

Best option is Yelagiri; 230 odd Km for Chennai folks & nearly 150 Km odd for Bangalore boys.

Chennai makkal can have B'fast at Vellore & then ride/drive towards Yelagiri for lunch
Bangalore boys can have B'fast at Shoolagiri & then ride/drive towards Yelagiri for lunch

Both teams have lunch, chit chat for while & then drive back respectively

When it comes to lunch there is really nothing much at Yelagiri. What we did last time was to start a bit late after a leisurely breakfast meet and then, after touring whatever part of Vellore Fort is still open to the public (not much, considering that the cops have appropriated a large part of it for their own use) we headed to Tom's Diner opposite VIT for a huge lunch. We can do that again, a lot of the Chennai people get quite nostalgic talking about the food at Tom's.
