Our last meet-up of the year 2016 was planned a just 2 weeks ahead of our meet up and our excitement towards meeting all the new India-Drive men started to prevail. Well, it had finally happened on a Saturday i.e. 10th December-2016 which turned out to be more fun than what we have anticipated.

All the 7 cars who attended the meet have lined up for a short introductory session:)

We set our own pace towards the destination by not missing out on 'India-Drive's' convoy

That's how you space up with the car ahead of yours :D

Those long curves are fun to drive. But overall road condition is average.

We reached our first stop at the destination besides the Nagarjunasagar dam which seemed quite dry with no water around

We got involved with our principle photo-shoot at the pit-stop

The roads throughout this place seemed quite good for a smooth drive

Covering the entire convoy in frame is a tough job. Time to get a wide angle lens.

It's been a pleasure meeting you guys. Return drive was super fun. Car discussions, boring boat ride, high speed convoy, food hunt, chicken Biryani @5pm, special nimbu soda with seeds, tea breaks, photo shoots, night drive, vinit's gyan on new hidden feature in fiesta, saran car gyan session, kumsi selfie video, harshita joining the drive even though she visited the place recently and jagadesh keeping up with us despite being a new driver.

 

We missed the panchagani team. Hope to see you all in 2017.

 

Thank you guys for contributing and making the drive a success.
