    Why not 93PS which shows Linea's power and 114PS which shows the T-Jet's power. So are you coming for this event Sun - Why don't you shift the base of operation to Ooty from Coorg?

    To all Chennai Folks - I've set up an SMS Channel and have sent invitations. Kindly subscribe to receive the updates regarding the meet.

    I've been discussing with Chennai folks regarding the plan for drive. As there are families accompanying us and involves night drive I thought it would be better to break after 400 Km's to catch up some sleep. Currently I'm looking at Hotel Chennis which is bang on the Salem-Coimbatore NH at Perundurai. Target is to leave around 4-5 in the evening on September 14th so that we can reach Perundurai before mid-night. We shall plan to leave the Hotel early in the morning at about 7 which means we shall reach Ooty somewhere before 12 in the noon.

    What's your plan - Kerala/Karnataka & AP folks? Are you all going to drive down directly?

    As per discussions Tvm members will report to cochin on 14th eve and will be staying in cochin YMCA as done in the previous meet. Cinju will be in charge of the Tvm members.

    The drive is proposed to start from Cochin marine Drive will commence at 5.30 AM with 5Am as reporting time. Distance would be close to 190 Kms and expected time of arrival under normal driving conditions is 3.5 hours. Would stop for breakfast at Cbe. Have to discuss with cvanandh regarding a locale. If Coimbatore team can join us we would all be climbing together the rest of 98 kms. Expected time of arrival is 12.30 - 13.30 hours at Ooty where we would team up for lunch.

    The final note would come down once we finalise with our team meeting which is to be held on Aug 5th at 3.PM at Cochin. Have to take advise from fellow team members before the drive.

    Great, I believe we're working on the same timings. If possible we should take the Metupalayam - Kotagiri - Ooty road because it's wider and better with reduced traffic. Also the TN folks along with CBE folks can tag along with you guys for the drive up the hill. I believe Bangalore & AP guys will come along from the opposite side via Gudalur.

    As of now, there are 2 options that we guys from AP are pondering about.

    Option 1 : Start on 14th Sep (friday) around noon after having lunch at home and drive down to Bangalore (~ 7-8 hrs drive). Stay at a decent hotel overnight to get some sleep. Join Bangalore team on the next morning 15th Sep (Saturday) and proceed towards Ooty. That would be around 20-25 cars, would be fun. :cool:

    Option 2 : Start on 14th Sep (friday) early in the morning and drive down to Mysore (~ 11-12 hrs drive). Stay overnight and join Bangalore team on their way to Ooty. This option would avoid us a lot of morning traffic from Bangalore to Mysore, which was suggested and preferred by many of our members. And also we can get some extra sleep. Families with infants and small kids will take quite some time to get ready and start in the morning aswell (personal experience) ;)

    Once the registration process is done, AP team will meet up again for further discussions about the drive.
    However, for both the above options, we have to co-ordinate with Bangalore guys and see if we can manage. If co-ordination of both teams seems to be a bit complicated, then AP team shall drive down to Ooty alone.
  10. I'll be joining from Thrissur. So, if the start is at 5.30, probably I'll wait at Thrissur at around 6.30 am.
