    Looks like all of you had a great time.I regret missing this one. Due to lack of time at my disposal, I did the other, shorter trek instead of this. From Rajgad to Torna. However, I'm planning to do this route sometime in the first/second week of january. If anyone of you is interested to come along (yet again), please let me know.

    This was one of the most difficult track to complete in the given time..specially when we had such fun on the way. The group was so indulging sometime i forgot that i am on an endurance track not leisure. Interesting "discussions" on which way to take between professor saab and Vijay kept us entertaining and that also gave us time to stop and gasp. Super dude came out to be mr baronia who is know all guy. Can not forget the fun we had on the way cracking jokes on whatever we saw. Gaming nerds srikanth/Kapale taught us MAFIA\contact which i am going to play in next meetup...Anubha kept saving her energy and (may be) kept cursing us..(inko track nai masti karni hai..he he)...Hope to go with you guys again....CITY SLEEP. :)
