After the success of the Chandigarh meet, I thought of planning a Dehradun region meet. Sent PMs to Dehradun members Pulkit, Rachit and Varun a few days after the Chandigarh meet. Finally, many calls, SMSs and PMs later, the date 11th November was fixed. Most of the planning was done while the forum was off-line. The initial plan was to have five cars and six members (myself, my dad, Pulkit, Rachit, Varun and Varun's cousin), but because of various reasons, the final count was three members (myself, Pulkit and Varun) and two cars (Pulkit's Punto and Varun's Abarth). We planned a drive to Poanta Sahib, which is around 50kms from Dehradun, but at the last moment, due to the low attendance, we changed our plan and instead went for a drive to Rajpur. I met Pulkit at Wadia Institute of Himalayan Geology at 1000hrs. We proceeded to Vasant Vihar, where we were joined by Varun. The Rendezvous Point: The Beauties Varun's Abarth Pulkit's Punto After spending some time taking photos and admiring the beauties, we started our drive towards Rajpur. I was in Pulkit's car, taking videos. Will post them later. The Drive Pulkit concentrating on the road Th Abarth was the lead vehicle Spotted a rare red Palio We stopped at a hairpin bend for a photoshoot. While clicking photos, a green coloured Swift with body kit, stickers and a large spoiler came and took the corner very fast. I shouted, "Brother, don't take the corner too fast, your Swift will turn over!" Varun said he has seen this Swift many times before. First Stop The Beauties Proud Punters Pulkit (left) and Varun Pulkit clicking pictures of the "Italian Duo" Pulkit's Punto Thereafter, we drove to a place known as the "Old British Mule Track". This track leads to Mussoorie. It used to be a kaccha track before, now it is paved. During the pre-independence times, the Britishers used to collect taxes from shephards passing through this track. Theres an old board listing the toll rates, installed in January 1929! The Toll Board Obviously, the cars could not climb up the narrow track, hence we parked the cars and clicked many pics. The location was stunning! At The Mule Track With hunger settling in, we drove to "Chhaya Cafe", located nearby. On our way to the cafe, a foreigner commented, "Nice car!" That guy must be aware of Fiat! Time flew past as we discussed topics like future mods, service centres etc. Chhaya Cafe Then we decided to visit the newly opened Westside Mall. It becomes the third mall in Dehradun. On our way to the mall At the Westside Mall The the mall's dusty parking In the lift After spending some time at the mall, it was time to leave. This time, I was in the Abarth. Varun was kind enough to drop me home. We had a wonderful time together. Hopefully, next time we will have more members.
