    Default Brumous Morning at Vandri Lake

    We (Prasad Gawde & Sagar Nair) started our ride at around 5.30 am in the morning. It was little cold outside due to fog. The road was so smooth that we were enjoying the ride. Suddenly the entire road has been covered with Mist and we could not see a thing in front of us. And then the Ghats started, where the speed dropped even below 50kph. There are water droplets inside the helmet and we could not see a thing. So we just took off the helmet visor and then continued the ride and still we couldn\'t see a thing. It was near zero-visibility.


    We followed the road marks, where we went off road when the road marks suddenly disappeared. We have to ride through the speeding vehicles...especially larger trucks, who can\\\\\\\'t even see us. The moment we reached the junction next to Vandri Lake, we had Tea to warm up. Then we continued our ride to Vandri Lake, where we saw the moment of surprise. Everything is foggy and in that freezing cold, the water in the lake was still warm... smokes coming out of water and dew on grass & spider webs are just awesome.


    Suddenly we got a call from Prasad\\\\\\\'s friend(Jaan), where he said that he camped in Vandri Lake...Now this is what we call \\\\\\\'Coincidence\\\\\\\'. We got lost when trying to locate the place where Jaan Mohammed camped. We could see him, hear him from a long distance. But we just could not find the way to reach him. All because of one old angry villager, who did not allow us to cross his house, which is actually the way to reach where our friends camped.


    I would say, its one crazy ride to awesomeness. Winter rides just got better.
