☝The thought which came in my mind when i finally decided to do 'Avalabetta' !! It was a quick plan as my rider brother Charan called me up and wanted me to check for a resort in Nandi hills as he is organising a Chennai - Bengaluru ride. I made a quick call to my mate Sunny and checked if he wanted to come along. The idea was not a trip and just a casual ride to nandi, check the home stay, negotiate on price and come back as soon as possible. But ultimately it turned out to be a ride of 6 people, 3 bikes and ofcourse yes we woke at 3 in the morning and left for 'Avalabetta' which was nowhere in the initial plans!!
Saturday Night (23.09.17)
Location: Sunny's room
Time: 08:00 PM
I went to Sunny's room to confirm of tomorrows plan. He was like - "Bro a colleague (Girl!) just called me up and she wanted to go to Nandi". As most man does he was momentous to cancel the preplanned trip with me to ride along the girl who just called him up an hour back!!☺
My luck or for his badluck the girl was not ready to wake up at 3 in the morning and to leave for Nandi which helped me run my plan☺. Our initial plan was to start by around 9-10 in the morning for Nandi. But later on, as we were required to ride till Nandi anyway, we included Avalabetta to the plan as both of us never made it and which is hardly 50kms away from. So we decided to wake up by 3 AM and leave by 3:30AM to Avalabetta and on the way back to climb Nandi and check the home stay as required by Charan.
Time: 10:30 PM
I returned to my room planning to sleep early as we were supposed to leave early in the morning. But since i had a deep sleep in the afternoon i could not fall asleep even after trying hard .
Took out my phone, checked texts and was scrolling through some youtube videos when i remembered of Hareesh! He was my previous room mate and we had plans for some trips which never took off!. I checked with him for the trip and was quick enough to join! Next in line, Abishek joined who was also my previous room mate, roping in two of his friends along! Ratna and Sarath. Ratna and Abishek shied away once they heard of the 3:00 AM plan. I could convince them easily just by faking a pic of Nandi hills (Source: Google) fully covered with mist for Avalabetta!☺. By the time it was already 12:30 and all of us signed off to meet at 4 AM and meeting point KR Puram.
