Posting after a long time. Sometimes Life makes you so busy that our priorities change. Same happened with me. My wife gave birth to a son two months back. The happiest occasion of my life. The last two months and the nine months before that when "WE" (not she alone) were expecting made her my first priority and driving, 'Fiat'ing and 'Punt'ing took a backseat.
So now when all is well and my wife is at her mother's place I have a free hand
(quite literally) to do anything here. So I decided to make optimum use of the vacation time and go to our native place in Talere (Taluka Kankavali). We could offer prayers at our "Kuldaivat" here and also it would serve as a long drive with a much needed break as well. The travelers are myself, my parents and my 9 year old nephew. I am the only driver.
The following preliminaries have been done:-
Tyre Nitrogen Pressure - Checked
Engine Oil - Checked
Coolant - Top Up done
Route - Mapped
Google Navigation - Checked
Am I missing out anything. Please point out. Any tips, fine points are welcome.
I am leaving tomorrow morning (09-05-2013) at 6. The planned route is Borivali - Ghodbunder - Majiwada Jn - Mumbai-Pune Expressway - Kolhapur - Gaganbawda - Tarele.
Will post the travel experience and the photographs soon. Wish me luck.
