    @ghodlur
    Just a suggestion, for people who have confirmed, we can create a group in WhatsApp.
  3. Guys. I'm bailing out. My mother has fallen sick through the night. Will be difficult for me to leave herbal one and come.

    You guys have a good time!

    Sorry guys, I had to drop out.
    Had a long day yesterday and slept after 2am and there was no way to get up at time to join you guys.
    Enjoy the drive, especially in the cool climate.

    The meet did happen but like last time met with a lukewarm response. Many opted out citing family emergencies and many didnt bother to call of inform about not coming to the meet. So the final list of attendees included myself (ghodlur), Volt (Prashant), Asimpleson(Aseem), GirishRaghu(Girish), Sudipz (sudip) & Coolwater (Mario).

    The regulars gathered at Fountain hotel at the stipulated time and waited for rest to arrive. The last person to arrive was Sudip with his friend and by that time the present already had few cups of adraki chai at the nearby tapri. Looking at the bare attendance, it wad debated whether to continue or not. But looking at the weather gods smiling, we decided to drive till Manor. 2 T-jets, 2 MJD's and 1 Fire engines set rolling. The total distance from Fountain Hotel was 50 kms approx with two breaks in between. One for the photo shoot and one because GirishRaghu experienced glow plug symbol activated on his 90 Hp Punto's dashboard which disappeared after a start. The weather was simple fantastic for the drive with cool breeze (thanks to the subsided rains), empty NH8 with exceptions of two diversions one at Vasai and other at Virar due to ongoing road works. Reached Shree Dutta Snacks at Manor (much to the chagrin of Aseem, he simply had enough snacks from the eatery till date but he graciously agreed for another round). Misal pav, Kotimbir wadis were gulped soon with a round of hot piping chais. Then the discussion started and went on till 11 am. Finally moved out at around 11.15 am hoping not to get caught in the rains as dark clouds were hovering above. But to our luck rains started and it was pouring heavily making visibility in front slightly lesser than usual. But it was fun driving in the rains and on empty roads. Overall a good drive cum meet, wish there were more to join us. As Aseem suggested and I whole heartedly agree, Mumbai meets arent happening, it would be better to join the mega Mumbai-Pune meet once a year and get satisfied. I will allow the pics to speak more.

    Weather seems icing on the cake:)

    Enjoyed it to the core. A drive in the rain with dark clouds hovering around and cool breeze; delicious Maharashtrian breakfast and lot of technical discussions with team, especially with Aseem. What else can you ask for?

    How I wish there were more participants which would have meant an early morning Fiat motorcade on NH8, may be next time!

    Cheers

    @ghodlur...nice write-up on the meet & super pictures.
    Was a lovely drive, fabulous climate, empty roads, scrumptious Misal pav, Kotimbir wadis n' hot chai. Long discussions... another hot chai and we were on our way back. Lashing rain on the return and the Punto as usual was inspiring confidence and hugging tarmac at decent speeds. What a fabulous day it turned out to be. Cheers Guys.
