Stage-1: From comfort of home to Kullu

Posted by Thejesh GN On January - 25 - 20118 COMMENTS

I don’t now how we came up with this plan. But I guess its one of those *30year* beer celebration sessions, I pitched a plan to travel by Himsagar Express, from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. Nothing but just train travel and then return back. For a friend of mine Sandeep that sounded weird. He pitched why not carry bikes along in train and ride it back to Bangalore. To my surprise all of us agreed. Next day all four confirmed too :)
the plan
Next few days were hard-core travel discussions at Alliance Francaise with lots and lots of black coffee. At last with Anand’s help we had a new destination Rohtang Pass and we will end our ride in Bangalore. I named the ride as #3kfor30.

Soon booked rail tickets, shipped bikes through a shipping company, got biking gears etc. I was still in shock. I couldn’t believe what was happening. I thought it was a dream. It can’t be so easy. But then reality hit me when the ride was just a week away. I had signed up my 125cc Yamaha to do 3000kms. I have never ridden it in mountains or more than 1000kms in one trip. And the biggest problem was I have not ridden a motorcycle in last six months!

The year that was 2010

Posted by Thejesh GN On December - 31 - 201010 COMMENTS

Now that you are used to “The year that was (2007, 2008, 2009)” posts, I will get into the post with out introduction.

1. Sabbatical – spent most of my time at Janaagraha thanks to Infosys. My sabbatical will end on Jan 15. Wait for a detailed post.

2. My sister got married.

3. Did a month long motorcycle ride across India to celebrate my 30th birthday. Initial plan was to do 3000kms. At last I ended up doing 5000+kms. It was a life changing ride. I haven’t written much about the ride. But I promise, I will. Check all posts tagged #3kfor30.
Surprisingly you can make new friends at 30. I guess I never met so many interesting people in one year, of course 1998 was a different story.

4. Restarted YAPodcast as 1by2coffee with Veetrag. Now we have nearly 2000 downloads. Its been fun. We are planning to do at least 25 episodes in 2011 against 12 this year.

5. Planning to raise $500 to setup a computer center at Kodagalli with UbuntuAtWork. Thanks to friends we are already at $325. The rest should be done in another 15 days. I will write a detailed note how we used this money.

6. I have been blogging for seven years now. Thanks for all the support.

I wish you all a very successful and peaceful twenty eleven.
