@ToughGuy: One word "Amazing". You really are tough guy[clap]. Very nice Travelogue enjoyed it thoroughly. That would be tiresome yet worth the effort I feel. Thanks for sharing the complete experience.

I used to think that only I am insane enough to take on long solo journeys,but after reading this review,I can say that you are a true 'TOUGH guy'.
I have made my longest road trip to Jodhpur and once to Udaipur all alone,but you did it till Pune,that also in a Wagon-R!!It needs some real guts.

Although I also have made one such trip but that time we were three people in the car and went to NDA for seeing the passing out parade of uncle's son...what is a piece of bad luck is that I have no pics,only memories of the trip are there.
We also too the same route as taken by you.

Thanks TSIVipul for your lovely comments, in start after reaching Gurgaon i thought of going back as i seriously doubt whether i was able to drive 26 hrs that too solo but i kept my eyes on my set targets and mission accomplished.

I thank god for being on my side.

I can understand that feeling very well buddy. But it's only a matter of one or two hours, after that the countdown begins[;)]

Well,my case is quite different.When I leave for a long trip,I am always just on my decision and there are no chances of returning without completing the task until there is some emergency.
I just once pray Maa for good luck and leave towards the horizon..

Checked and amazed,1900+ kms in just 19 hours is really mind blowing.

Right you are,still I believe in only two decisions 'yes' or 'no',either leave or don't,return is not acceptable for me.

Had this feeling for this trip only, may be due to i am alone or may be due to such a big target of reaching Pune by next day.

Well,my case is quite different.When I leave for a long trip,I am always just on my decision and there are no chances of returning without completing the task until there is some emergency.

I am also very firm in these cases, once i had taken decision will not think much but for this particular trip i thought like this may be due to reasons stated above.

That's damm expensive. 40 lakhs just for the entry. I can tell a better and cheaper way, buy a air ticket come to US, rent a car and drive from NewYork to California. and that is almost 3000 miles.

Air Fare: Rs 50-60 K (May be less if you can get a deal)
Renting Car: Around 50K for a week
Petrol: Around 22k

So which option would you take buddy[:)][drive]

Like i said for people with really deep pockets(millionaire spending habits),& obviously you travel with company of great cars,millionaires & celebs from around the world.
In a way its like buying a Lambo/Ferrari or buying 20 odd Chevy Cruz
or choosing between economy class on an airline & to fly in the Concorde(sadly no more).Its a lifestyle choice for those who can afford it,but for the rest the option you have suggested is good & affordable.
