    We reached our Bangalore home safely at 5:15 pm today. We left Hotel Lakeview, Ooty at 10:15 am. I took the same Masinagudi route for the downhill journey too. The first stop was at HP outlet near Gundlupet at 12:30 pm where my Linea had petrol for Rs 1000. We had coffee at the attached CCD. The next stop was at Maddur Adiga's for hot tomato soup at 3:30 pm. My Linea did not participate in the photo session as there was no sign of it until 10:15 am although it was scheduled at 10 am.

    Another innovative idea of Tamil Nadu Highways Department. The speed breakers on the MDR [Masinagudi route] are placed only for vehicles going downhill and not for the ones going uphill. And also, at every hair-pin bend, the drivers are advised to go in the second gear!:)

    Thanks, Deepak.

    My Linea had her fifth paid servicing done at Concorde Motors, Mysore Road. I went there by 10:35 am and got my Linea back by 6 pm today. Since all the fluids and spark plugs were replaced in the previous servicing itself, engine oil and oil and fuel filters were replaced now. They didn't have stock of air filter. So, the existing air filter was cleaned and refitted. The washing of my Linea was very bad with a gift of minor scratch.:( I expressed my displeasure in the instant feedback. I paid Rs 5615 by credit card.

    we really missed your linea and your family for the photoshoot.

    we thought of leaving ooty around 1030,perhaps we left around 1430.

    parking all cars in that space is a uphill task,thus ate the time.

    Anyhow your linea got the service job done as per schedule.

    In another few hours, we are scheduled to leave for Vadodara en route HP.:)

    Not at all, Ramesh.

    Thanks a lot, Ramesh. My Linea badly requires all the good wishes as the snowfall has already been reported in the higher reaches of HP!

    Thank you very much, Arnab. Will post updates in this thread, and after my return, will start an exclusive thread for travelogue.

    j.ravi sir,you didn't gave a hint when we met in ooty.perhaps, army top secret or in other

    words "come on its yet another short drive" (i like these figures 1500km in 32 hrs)

    sir,Every time you gather momentum on wheels,creates a buzz.

    Every journey is unique with FTA baby.

    This is something a "poetry on wheels".
