HI Friends Completed 6000 km of blissful driving of my Linea t jet Last month we (me and wife) went for a long long drive in myLinea t jet plus. We drove from Tirupati to Aurangabad and back via Banglore.The details of my journey follow Day 1: Drove from Tirupati to Banglore 250 kms Day 2 : Stay at Banglore on office work Day 3: Drove from Banglore to Pune. Left Banglore at 5.45AM ( I always start driving only after5AM to avoid sleepy truck/taxi/bus drivers) and reached Pune by 7.00PM. Breakfast at A1/Kamath near Davnagere (having missed several other breakfast placesenroute) and nice lunch at Sankam Residency Belgaum. Stayed at Pune for the night. Day 4: Left Pune by about 11 AM for Shirdi. Picked up my sonwho works in Pune for this trip. Reached Shirdi by 3.00PM and completed darshanby 3.45PM. Left for Ellora by 4.00Pm and reached by 6.00PM. Stayed at hotelKailash there which is nice but the food is exorbitantly priced (relative tothe quality). Day 5: Visited Ellora caves from 7.00 to 10.00AM and reachedAurangabad by noon. My son left for Pune in the evening by bus Stayed there fora couple of days with a cousin. Day 7: left Aurangabad by 6.00AM and reached Pune by 9.30AMand spent till 11.00AM with my son and then proceeded. Reached Belgaum 5.30after Lunch enroute near Kolhapur (executive club) and stayed in Sankamresidency for the night. Its a nice hotel and reasonably priced. Day 8: Left Belgaum by 6.00AM and reached Banglore by noon.Did not stop in Banglore but proceeded to Tirupati. Had lunch at Kolar andreached Tirupati by 5.30PM (a distance of >750Kms). The roads throughout were good including the state highwaysin Maharashtra. Of course the best part of the drive was from Banglore toBelgaum. Between Belgaum and Pune while the road is good, we encountered a lotof traffic both ways especially of two wheelers. Through out this long journey I found drive very enjouable and car is very responsive. I touched 130kmph on several stretches between Banglore and Belgaum and the vehicle was very stable and the ride was smooth.<o></o><o></o> I have used the MapmyIndia GPS extensively during this tripand found it fairly accurate and dependable though at one or two places it tookme into “NO ENTRY” roads. Fortunately cops were not around. Total distance covered: 2861Kms Total petrol consumed:213.10L Av.KMPL: 13.42 Could not get the 5000Kms service done so far (meter reading6075kms). Booked for the service this Sat day 14<sup>th</sup> with MG brothersat Nellore.
