    Default Escapade to the Eastern Ghats - The 1000 km Ride

    Prologue


    The discussions had been hot for the past few days on the next trip. Even after meetings at CCD and online chats, we had not yet selected a destination for the next trip. Also, there was still a question as to how many would join the trip. All of us had our obligations, related to family or job, but the starry eyes told the story that they dreamt of. In wake of the recent political bandhs, there were uncertainties if there would be any trip at all.

    We had two options: traveling within the state northwards and go into the wilderness of Keonjhar, or taking the Golden Quadrilateral road south to the beach city of Vizag. The state-wide bandhs and the lure of traveling on the beautiful beach roads were too much, and we finalized upon Vizag. The planned date for starting on the trip was 25th of December, when all of us were on holidays. But even ten days ahead of the date of the journey, many of us were not sure and no plans were in place.

    Come 13th December, I did a small trip alone and that acted as a stimulant to awake the riding beast. I decided to go on the big trip, come what may. The next meeting, we did a headcount of people who were in for the trip. A decent six riders, with two maybes was fair enough. Others had some personal commitments to attend to. Next, we started on the real preparation part. Mails flew around the group with the list of things and tools to take, along with some tips from the more experienced tourers on the net. People who heard of the trip were cynical, even mocking, trying to reason with us against the idea of the trip. In our case, passion was way ahead of reason and there was no one who could change our minds, not even warnings from parents.

    On December 24th, we had one last meeting and ticked off against a list of things each one of us was supposed to bring. Bikes had undergone the examination of the mechanics and the needful was done. The hotel had been booked, thanks to the effort of Soumya and Harish. All bags were to be packed at the night of 24th.

    The stage was set for the big ride.
