Thanks for the suggestions @ Ganges, I am driving alone and have done more than 800+ kms plus about 5 to 6 times and hence driving 900+ Kms a day should not be an issue. I have decided to take some packed rice from home for lunch (day 1 & 2) so that I can stop near a toll booth and have my lunch and continue the journey which can save about an hour to find a restaurant and back to highways. @ Ravi_M, since I am not sure about the route condition, I preferred to go during the day time. I also came to know that the route Satara-Lonad-Shirur-Nagar is filled with lots of truck movement, is that so? @ Sunil Kumar, thanks for accommodation suggestion and I too have my plans to stay in RNS residency. My plan is to back to Chennai from Murudeshwar via Kollur and my colleague planning to travel to Kukke Shree Subrahmanya Temple from Chennai next weekend and hope the same route I will also be taking, any alternate route to reach Tumkur? He drives his Punto 75 BHP.
