Travel partners for long road trip in December

  • December 15, 2012 · 5:00 AM

Hi, I am going on a road trip during the last 2 weeks of December covering Aurangabad (Ajanta, Ellora and around), Gir Forest(safari to see the lions!), Somnath, Dwaraka, Rann of Kutch, Mumbai and Goa and I am looking for 2 travel partners to make the trip more enjoyable and also lighter on pocket. The plan is to start the trip from Bangalore on the 15th of December and reach back around 28th (this is not fixed). At the moment, another group member Tim Poeppel is confirmed, so its 2 of us.
It is expected that interested parties love being on the road, are willing to share the responsibilities/expenses for the trip (please bear in mind that this is not an organized trip. we have to deal with things as it comes. for eg: no reservations made, so we have to find place to sleep every night where ever we are) and most importantly is easy going.
My initial estimate for the trip would be around Rs 25000 per person if we are 4 ppl.
As this is a long trip and we will enjoy the trip only if we enjoy the company, If you are really interested in joining the trip, we must meet before we start the trip to know each other and have some confidence about the ppl we will make the trip with. This meeting is also required to discuss the trip.

So, if you are really interested in doing something like this, please let me know on 8892370382. The next step would be the meeting and we take it from there. Please also know that the trip will be fast paced and very exhausting.

Please note that RSVPs will be ignored unless backed up by phone call or message.

btw I am driving and the car is a Mahindra Scorpio.

Thanks

      this is a conservative estimate for 12 to 14 days of travel,fuel, food, stay, safari, entry tickets and miscellaneous expenses. considering that, its a good deal i think.:)..and this is not final figure, we share the expenses as they occur.

      25000/- for 12-14 days is not a bad deal, which works out to 2000/- per day per head. In any trip, the stay and the food cost a lot. If one can manage these two, that will bring down the cost by a whopping margin. I'm another road trip guy. When I go on trips, I generally get around 1000/- per day per head including everything, many times less than that too.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
