    Thanks everybody for making it. Had a great time. Was awesome to meetup with like minded and sportive people. On a personal note, I think it is important for us to know our own history and culture. I like to visit such places with my family and hence post them online for others to join me in my learning and understanding of how much our vast country can offer us... if only we have the passion to look inwards. Look forward to meeting more such fabulous people in meetups that am planning over the next couple of months.

    This was my first meet up outing. Was a memorable experience. The efforts put in to ensure all of us had a good time is commendable Raj. All detais were in place. Was good to meet with all those who made it. Raj... special thanks for driving all the way to Mysore to ensure we had hot biryani. Look forward to many more meet ups that you will organise.

      Hi, If you can reach opposite Innovative multiplex by around 6.30 am, I can pick you and drive back towards Silk board/Madivala where others are planning to assemble. you can reach me @[masked]

      March 21, 2013

    • Raja

      I will be there opp innovative multiplex by 6:30. Count me in. Thanks

      March 22, 2013

  • Raj

    Hello All, I have changed our meeting point to Madiwala outside Total Mall. That would be easier for us to hit the NICE road and head to Kengeri. The time would be the same - 7:00 a.m. I was planning on organizing Biryani ( NV and VEG) for all and making it a camp site lunch somewhere on the river banks. Looks like everybody is busy and has not time to check these posts. Hence I am cancelling that plan and sticking to some hotel we will find there or enroute. Pls get in touch with the people who have listed their vehicles as available as sort out the travel arrangements. I can be reached on [masked] if you have any queries.

    Hello All,

    Lets close this discussion on Friday evening. All those who are joining pls make sure you follow these threads and line up yourself with the cars / bikes.

    Also, for the food preferences, pls go to Polls and choose your vote - http://www.meetup.com/Expeditions/polls/777552/

    :)

    March 20, 2013

    • Raj

      Unfortunately I am unable to put up polls here. That is my group and hence I put it up there. All i needed to know was if you are veg or nonveg...

      March 21, 2013

    • Abhitab J.

      Veg. Thanks.

  • MANJUNATH

    Hi Friends...

    I am trevelling from Hosakote please tell if any body able to pick me near KR Puram or Indiranagar.....

    March 21, 2013

  • Raj

    Ok everybody...we are getting closer to the date. I suggest that those of you who have your cars / bikes pls write the number of vacancies you can accommodate and those of you who are interested in hitching a ride pls write to the owners about your interest to share the ride. What I want to see is the final count as follows:

    1. Name of the owner
    2. Number of pax in his / her car.
    3. Names of the passengers in his / her car. Once this is up we will know exactly who is left out and work out accordingly. All costs will be shared equally by everybody. Priority is in the order of Children, ladies, elderly and finally all the macho guys !

    Pls treat this as top priority folks.

    • B B.

      Hi Raj, I would be driving from HSR layout. If the MG road meeting is just for a starting point purpose, I would like to skip that and meet the gang somewhere near Kumblagodu or Bidadi as it makes sense for me to take the NICE ring road from here rather than drive through the city. I have 3 places in my car if anyone from around HSR, Bellandur, Silkboard etc interested. Thanks

    1 · March 19, 2013

    • Sharath P.

      I will drive and my car is a 7 seater. So can take 6 more ppl. However, I do not recommend the last 2 seats for trips outside city as it could be quite uncomfortable. still, if someone wants to take those seats they are welcome.:)

      March 19, 2013

  • omprakash

    I am also fine with TT or Car, I am coming from Kormangala Sony World

  • Shan

    Hi..am also fine with TT or Carpool..

    March 18, 2013

  • Raj

    Ok everybody...pls take a minute off your busy schedules and let me know how may are interested in the TT... how many are coming by car and bikes...Pls treat this as urgent. For a TT the costs would be approximately Rs. 13 per km and the trip would be around 250 kms plus driver (250 per day) and will be a 12 seater. So do your own calculations and let me know.

    March 18, 2013

    • Raja

      I am fine with TT or carpool if available

      March 18, 2013

    March 11, 2013

    • Raj

      Shouldn't be an issue. We will decide who are the ones in what vehicles when we get closer to the date.

      March 11, 2013

  • Karthik.R

    Hi Raj good day , am in, coming from ramurthynagar . Its one day trip right ?

    March 11, 2013

    • Raj

      Hi Karthik, yes boss... it is a day trip. We aim to be back home by sunset - unless its too much of fun to let go !

      March 11, 2013

  • Raj

    Ok Everybody... we are just about 15 days away from the date. So lets see how many wanna car pool, bike it or take a TT. Pls do mention your preferences here so that we can all take make the arrangements accordingly.

    March 8, 2013

    • Jayashree

      Raj... pls include me if there is teaming up en route via old airport road

      March 11, 2013

    • Raj

      Sure :)

      March 11, 2013

  • Suresh

    @Raj,
    Can this be advanced to 23rd Mar? Unfortunately, my Sundays are booked for some time to come. I believe either Sat or Sun should be OK to the RSVPed here??!!

    March 10, 2013

    • Raj

      Suresh, from past experience I have seen that most people work even on Saturdays and they are the ones who are more keen to join such events. I had posted this Daycation keeping that in mind. So pls bear with us and take a day off on this Sunday and land up buddy !

      March 10, 2013

  • Shan

    I will also join..

    March 9, 2013

    • Raj

      cool

      March 9, 2013

  • Shree

    Raj- order of prefernce is TT or car pool.

    March 9, 2013

    • Raj

      TT, Car, Bike.

      March 9, 2013

    • Raj

      The idea is to get to know more people and make some more great friends !

      March 9, 2013

  • Raj

    Hello All, I have deleted the Wonderla part of the program. So I guess it is an entire day of history, culture and nature !!!

    1 · February 25, 2013

    • Raj

      Sure. :)

      March 1, 2013

    • Jayashree

      Thanks Raj. Lets fine tune closer to date.

      March 1, 2013

  • Raj

    I would also prefer that a Tempo Traveler (12 seater) be shared. So depending on the total number of people, we can maybe pool in and book our travel well in advance. The costs will be around Rs. 12 or Rs. 13 per KM and Rs. 300 for driver bata. So if all are ok, that should be the best option...:)

    1 · February 27, 2013

    • Jayashree

      Ok with AC or non AC whatever the group wants.

      March 1, 2013

    • Raj

      Keerti... thanks for the tip. Will bear in mind. We will take a call when we get closer to the date.

      March 1, 2013

  • Jasmine Tiger S.

    Tentative,,,too early

    February 23, 2013

    • Raj

      Yep... I prefer to plan it in advance based on RSVP of families with children, couples and singles who are coming so that transportation will not be a problem.

      1 · February 25, 2013

  • Keerti

    @Raj, I gather one can spend the whole day at Wonderla. We may not be able to do justice if we visit Wonderla on our way back from Srirangapatna. Maybe split it into 2 meetups? Just a thought.

    1 · February 22, 2013

    • Suresh

      I support this. When we visit a place, we should visit it thoroughly and not rush up. Of course, it is left to organizer's discretion.

      February 23, 2013

  • Raj

    Travel will be individual / carpool / bikes... whatever you have got... in case there are more families with children... they will be given first preference for carpool or common transport.

    February 21, 2013

  • Jayashree

    Thanks Raj. Also your comment "no last date to RSVP.... there is no booking... just join the crowd :)" - makes it flexi. Will join the crowd if I can.

    Does not having own transport disqualify me to join?

    February 20, 2013

    • Raj

      No problem Jayashree... we could always carpool...:)

      February 20, 2013

  • Parjanya S.

    what do you think would be the total cost...a rough estimate..

    February 20, 2013

    • Raj

      Travel in individual... if we are grouping up then maybe we can hire some common transport... other than that it will be food... B'fast, snack, water, Lunch, tea/coffee... i dont think more than Rs 500 for food... Plus transport... each will be spending their own...
