Trip to Karde Beach
It was my colleague who was throwing a bachelor party.
Since there are many driver enthusiasts in the team every one wanted a drive+celebration!
So finally locked on the Beautiful Karde Beach.
All plans done. We decided to start as early as 5:30AM on saturday 4th of Oct and return home on 5th night.
My participation was tentative as wife and kids were unwell. From tentative it was almost cancelled when the Dr was unavailable on friday due to Dassehra :-(
I could not sleep on the Friday night, just changing the sides all night. I was missing the drive more than the party.
Wife read my lame face and suggested we go to doctor early Saturday and I can drive after that.
But driving alone no fun!! Couple of my colleagues had a football match and they decided to leave late that is by 10am. But still I knew I'll not be able to finish the hospital formalities by 10.
It was pure luck, their match delayed by an hr. They could only be able to finish by 12.
I jumped out of excitement, I still couldnot believe I was gonna make it to Karde.
I quickly wrapped all works and picked up friends wife to accompany my wife. We reached home by 12pm.
Mean time I checked with the colleague if I can take my car. He happily agreed as his i20 was not in good condition.
Next 15-20 mins quick checks done
Fuel level (which was more than 80%)
They reached my place by 1pm and we headed towards a hotel to have a quick bites as he was very tired and hungry after the match.
We finished munching idlis, dosas and puris.
By1:30pm we are off to Karde via tamhini.
Here is the complete round trip route.
Tamhini has always been my favorite route to satisfy my driving thirst.
With 3 stops for tea and photo shoot we could manage to reach Karde in 4:30mins
Amazing drive, fell in love again after this drive.
TJet is one heck of a machine.
Whole of the ghat section never came down below 3rd gear!!

Thanks Abhishek , yes very well said. The track is really made for fiats.
Every corner, just apply break..downshift... And zoooom. Just can't explain that feeling in words.
