    Sure, it's more exciting when i can explain live. Will tell you when we meet next week.

    RSA was not able to pick the lock from the door (Probably because, each one of us already tried our hands on it before the RSA arrived in about an hr and we managed to make sure he can't pick it the normal way). The guy then made a small hole at the bottom of the driver side door to push the boot open knob (Tip of the year, very useful to know if one is not a thief :D) with a screwdriver and off we were.

    You can stay here Hotel Venkat Presidency- Hotel in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra this is located on the highway about 300 meters before the Kalamboli McDonald or 310 meters from the beginning of the Expressway. It is walking distance from the McD & there is an underpass to cross over from the opposite side of the highway.

    Of course there are several other options before and after this location. Several smallish hotels line the highway @ Sanpada, little ahead in Turbhe you have the option of either the Ibis or the Yogi and then there's the four seasons in Vashi and of course the Hotel 3 Star in Kharghar. All of these are on the highway.

    18. Prakash - Punto
    19. chandu525
    20. varun- punto (absal khan/asif)

    We need to find a way to get and share all the contact numbers of the members who are in the 2nd Group and travelling together to Factory visit from Bangalore.
    A PM or email can be sent to one member who can then collate all the contact numbers and share with rest of the team. Members can send a PM to me or whoever wants to volanteer, with their contact number and email ID so that it can then be made into one email and shared with everyone in the team.

    For the drive, as correctly suggested by Varun we will have to split into smaller groups either 5 cars in each or since we have 20 members on the list depending on the car count we can make it into 3 groups and proceed with the travel!!
    The Lead and sweep cars can coordinate with the groups for the breaks.

    A big thank you to J Ravi sir for helping me in planning the stops and fuel stations. :clap
