Yes, the title is inspired by the BRILLIANT movie IN PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS. Why so? Because just like in the movie where the main character spends much of his time in pusuit of achieveing happiness, we, that is, Dipankar & Sandeep spent most part of the night in the search of the place called Swarghat.
Dipankar a.k.a rx100.7050 on P220 Fi
Sandeep a.k.a titanic4u on CBR 250
total kms done 750 kms
Destination: Swarghat, Himachal Pradesh.
So, I was mood for a shortish trip during the Dushehra holiday (Thursday). I have done few trips in the past but posted just one travel log which was my short honeymoon trip with my all time favourite pillion, my wife. I had to take one compensatory off on Friday & voila!! We get 4 days of holidays. Took prior permission from my wife about this trip. She had to reluctantly agree to let me off loose for few days as she couldn't get leave from her office (at this point of time, I get reminded of an TV ad of some liqour brand music CD where one of the guy becomes very sad when his wife's one week official trip gets cancelled. Other guy is very sympathetic to the problem. In my case, there was happiness all around.... my wife reads this & am a dead biker doing real ghost rider scene)
Mr. titanic4u is a relatively new guy in XBHP. He is also very new in biking activities. He bought 1st bike, a CBR 250. He does 1st trip & that too with me & that too on a stretch in which even seasoned tourer would think twice doing that stretch & that too in dead of the night.
Nevertheless, we started our journey to Swarghat on 06th Oct'11 at 1600 hrs from Rajghat.
More to come soon. There are many photos to share as Sandeep was carrying his Nikon DSLR & me carrying my new Canon Powershot SX 30IS. It will take soem time to upload pics & complete the travel log as all the pics are high res.
