  1. Awesome !

    One word to describe the Journey that I had from Pune to Coimbatore driving all alone,

    It all started on 3-Nov-2012, Saturday. Came home from office on Friday evening and was all excited for the journey , the next day.
    Slept soon at 7:00 PM to make sure to take a good nap. But my excitement woke me up at 11:15 PM. Hardly 3 hours of sleep. I had everything packed.
    Now the game began. Thoughts came asking me to start @ 12:00 AM midnight. Was daunting and was also exciting. So immediately started getting
    ready and started loading Punto with the luggage and the necessities.

    Clock - 11:46 PM, FRI - 2-Nov

    Sat inside Punto, and with excitement , started the engine and idled it for 2 minutes. Checked everything barely, the lights and the fuel and the other
    trivial things. Reset the trip meter A. Prayed to the Almighty and engaged the reverse gear to take it out of the parking lot.

    My flat was just adjacent to the Pune - Bangalore highway. Rode slowly till the highway waiting to take it on.

    And the time was 12:00 AM, SAT -3-Nov

    Me, Punto , Road, Road and more Road. Decided to take the drive all way to Coimbatore on the same day

    And the time was 10:00 PM SAT- 3- Nov

    Reached home at Coimbatore safe and sound. Checked the trip meter and it was showing 1250 KMS done in 22 hours with Avg Speed 68MPH

    Not to forget the mileage that I got all the way. Check in the below pic for yourself.

    Am now chilling in Coimbatore, and Got lot to do in the vacation holidays.

    One more thing which excites me is the driving back to Pune from Coimbatore (Yaay)

    Till then enjoy the below pics

    Great drive Heartlin.
    By the way, i don't see any picture showing your mileage figures.

    Do update the road condition. Was the road condition as discussed and expected?
    What route did you take? did you by pass Bangalore via NICE road and straight to Electronics city junction near Hosur?

    It must have been quite a drive to achieve the entire streach in one go :car
