    Pune Member's Travel Plan:

    1. We will meet at Joshi Vadewale, Wakad (opposite Indira College) at 7.45 am
    2. Have some quick snacks (vada pav, tea etc) and leave Joshi Vadewale by 8.45 am
    3. We proceed towards the meet venue taking the old highway. Wakad - Somatane - Kamshet - Pavana. (Google Maps Link : http://goo.gl/maps/x5Nc3)
    4. The distance is around 45-50 kms and it will take us an hour to hour and fifteen minutes to reach. We stick to old highway till Kamshet. At Kamshet we take a left turn on the highway to a road that takes us towards Pawana. From that left turn the meet venue is 17.3 kms. It is imperative that we reach early so that we can reserve the good parking spots for ourselves.
    5. This 17.3 km patch is good / bad / average in stretches. But not really bad. Underbody won't scrape. There is a small narrow ghat. In case there is a bus that is coming from the other side we will have to pull over. I suggest we do not take this ghat all cars at once but do so in batches of 3-4 cars.
    6. Once we reach the venue we park our cars and wait for Mumbai members to join.
    When all members are at the venue we call for the boats and start going in groups to the island. Do note that the boats won't ferry for individual members. We will be transported only in groups.

    Stuff to get: (This is common for both Pune & Mumbai members)

    1. Your FIAT car ! :p
    2. Caps, sunglasses (Don't wear the cap in the boat. It will fly off)
    3. If you are not comfortable with outside water : your own stock of water bottles
    4. Camera
    5. Badminton rackets and shuttles, playing cards, cricket equipment
    6. Spare clothes - in case it rains and you decide to have a blast in the rain!
    7. Please wear comfortable sports shoes
    I will update this thread if something more comes to my mind.

    Hi,
    I am in a fix. Had left my Punto at Pandit, for second service and to get ABS issue resolved yesterday. They have not been able to resolve the ABS issue yet and I am doubtful if they will deliver my car today. Can I ride along someone for the meet?
