  • Sameer

    Guys the ratio of 1:1 is critical. Please see if we can get more ladies on board. Ladies Age 21 to 121 welcome. :-). BTW I am 85 years old. :-)(kidding!)

    September 19, 2013

    • Sameer

      Tents are arranged. Thanks for your car. Your place is booked :-). Hope to see you there. also see the latest announcements.

      September 20, 2013

      These tents are big 10 person tents. one/two for the girls. Hope to see you there.

      September 20, 2013

  • Sameer

    All issues will be ironed out by sunday after which the payment will opened up.
    The issues are cars available, payments, exactly what is to be carried by everyone, veg/non veg, BBQ, musical instruments, photography, instructions on the trek etc.

    September 20, 2013

  • Sameer

    The 1:1 ratio has seems a distant dream. Only 10 of 35 RSVP are ladies.
    Looks like this meet up is not interesting enough for lovely ladies of Bangalore!! Or probably the guys are too boring!!
    I do not want turn down the enthusiastic gentlemen. So....

    GOOD NEWS 1. ALL THE GUYS WHO HAVE RSVPed ARE IN AND CAN ATTEND THIS MEET UP ON THE CONDITION LISTED BELOW.
    2. SPORTIVE LADIES PAY ONLY 50% OF THE AMOUNT.

    NOT SO GOOD NEWS : 1. THOSE OF US ATTENDING STAG WOULD HAVE TO BEAR AN ADDITIONAL COST THAT WOULD BE WORKED OUT.
    2. LUCKY GIRLS!!

    I hope this is an incentive enough for more ladies to attend!!

    I hope gentlemen are chivalrous enough for this meetup!

    September 20, 2013

  • Shwetha H S

    Is anybody bringing a guitar, mandolin or any musical instrument....? Or music player dock....?

    September 20, 2013

  • Sameer

    Hi All,

    Our camp site is completely inundated with the heavy downpour in the past week.

    I hate to announce this but we have to postpone the trip to 28 Sep 13.

    I hoped for a dream trip on 21 Sep, something straight out of Hollywood or Bollywood or sandalwood.

    What does one do if all we have wetwood !!

    I promise you a dream trip on the 28th sep.

    Moreover we have wine that has aged another week...:-)

    Cheers!!
