Right from the starting of our semester exams, we were having a plan to ride to Jaipur after exams but due to some reason, we had to cancel the Jaipur ride or I should say we had to change the destination. We thought of going towards Nanital but convincing parents for a ride to Nanital would have been a bit difficult as it builds the image of hilly ride at the very first moment. So, we thought of going towards Dehradun which, by name, doesn't give such impression and planned to cover Mussoorie and Dhanaulti on the name of Dehradun itself.
Finally, we zeroed on the Delhi-Dehradun-Mussoorie-Dhanaulti-Delhi Ride. As on our last(and first too) ride, Arun kept us waiting for his decision for some 15 days or so and then finally refused to ride with us two days prior to the planned day for starting the ride. So, we decided to ride again as 2 bikes and 3 people (Me, Ashish Verma and Abhinav) and did all the planning etc. On the night before THE MORNING, Abhinav screwed our minds by NOT doing the only work assigned to him, i.e., arranging a cam (so don't expect good quality pics, all taken with 3MP phone cam) but still we kept our cool and after fetching some small things for our ride from market, I headed back to my home and Ashish and Abhinav went to Abhinav's home to stay for the night. Now, here another shock was awaiting us. Abhinav's dad refused to let him go on bike in so much cold weather @ around 11 p.m. whereas we were scheduled to leave @ 6 a.m. Talked about it for more than an hour, and it was decided that me and Verma will ride on respective bikes so that the ride won't get cancelled which could result in NO touring in future also as it was our first official(LOL!) big ride and it took me about 1 and half month to convince my parents about it.
So, past 12:00 at night, its like Me and Verma will ride as single on each bike. Didn't know where we will go, how much expenses will it take, will it be fun or not and many more unanswered questions for which we don't have time. It was planned that we'll meet @ Madhuban Chowk @ 7:00a.m. and then decide what to do, where to go etc.
