    Yesterday [7 September 2013], we checked out of Hotel Sapphire, Amritsar at 12:15 pm and started driving to Dalhousie. We reached Hotel Grand View, Dalhousie at 8:00 pm. I got the connectivity now only in the hotel, and hence, the delay in updating.

    Your Journey seems quite exciting and all the best for happy miles ahead.
    BTW any particular reason, why you prefer to drive during evening/nights instead of starting in early morning.
    Also did you drove for all those 26+ hrs continuously till Indore? Amazing.

    Thanks a lot, the_crusader.

    I planned it in such a way that I reach the destination hotel by 12 noon, the specified time for check-in, so that I can take rest for the maximum hours; but, it didn't work out that way and I ended up reaching by evening thanks to the bad roads and traffic congestion.

    With a power nap of about one hour after Ahmednagar.

    Hats off Ravi sir, for all your energy even at an elderly age.

    I get tired after driving for ten hours itself.

    Drive safe, waiting for your travelogue.

    My Linea safely brought us to The Bhagsu, HPTDC Hotel at McLeodganj, Himachal Pradesh at 4:45 pm today. Earlier, we checked out of Hotel Grand View, Dalhousie at 10:45 am. En route, I gave my Linea a grand Himalayan spring bath spending about an hour.

    We [me, wife and Linea] reached Hotel Padmini Niwas, Mussoorie, safely at 8:15 pm today. We left The Bhagsu, McLeodGanj HPTDC hotel, at 6:20 am. Although I dropped Zozilla from my itinerary, the Zozilla experience chased all the way to Mussoorie. While Padmini Niwas is situated on the top of a hillock, the access is by way of a steep, gravelly, narrow public road. I struggled a lot for about 15 minutes to take my Linea to the car parking. At a hairpin bend, the front wheels started spinning without grip. The rear side of my Linea was facing a deep valley without parapet wall. We started getting burnt rubber smell! Finally, I steered the front wheels straight forward, did a few manoeuvres and finally parked my Linea at 8:30 pm!
