 Mission  Accomplished  Jawans  !!  Cheering  
 
                                                                                                                                              CHEERS..!!
 
 Was  my  first  trip  with   IAH  and  had  a  great  time.  Thanks  2  all  mumbaites  and  puneites   who  came  together  and  made  it  a  success.
 
 Surely  everybody  was  rewarded  with  awesome  driftwoods  and  had  fun  catching  some  of  the  natives  though  were  no  much  prepared  for  phishing  (Thanks  to  puneites  who  got  net).
 
 Waiting  for  pics  of  the  same.  It  was  a  memorable  trip  and  looking  forward  to  more  in  future.  Thumbs Up  
 
 Regards  
 Satish  Nadar

 It  sure  was  a  great  collection.
 The  place  was  full  of  wood.
 We  guys  started  at  abt  8.15  am  from  Chandni  Chowk  where  the  mumbai  folks  met  us.It  was  Nilesh  with  his  'truck',Nikhil  as  the  cleaner..  and  Satish  and  Ali  as  their  'passengers'.
 We  had  barely  moved  when  Ali,  living  upto  the  reputation  of  a  'passenger'  started  showing  symptoms  of  motion  sickness  !  Smile
 There  was  this  this  short  break  for  the  puke  followed  by  another  one  for  a  tea  cofee.
 We  moved  ahead  only  to  stop  by  a  fast  flowing  stream  where  we  tried  our  hands  at  some  fishing.
 None  of  us  was  really  prepared  as  this  was  more  of  a  driftwood  collection  trip.
 Out  came  small  handnets  and  then  futile  attempts  followed.
 It  was  then  decided  that  we  will  do  the  fishing  on  our  way  back..
 The  collection  spot  was  not  too  far  off  and  we  reached  there  within  an  hour.
 There  was  no  disappointment  at  the  collection  spot.
 The  place  looked  like  a  ravaged  jungle  with  broken  wood  pieces  all  over.
 
 I  actually  felt  like  Alice  in  wonderland  with  so  much  wood  to  choose  from.
 We  kept  moving  ahead  picking  up  every  piece  that  we  found  interesting.
 After  a  while...each  of  our  hands  were  full  and  we  placed  everything  at  a  place  and  called  it  Collection  point  one  Smile  We  eventually  had  three  such  collection  points.
 
 Finally,  we  returned  to  each  of  those  points  and  did  a  final  sorting  and  choosing  and  decided  the  best  looking  ones  and  dumped  them  into  the  boot  of  the  cars.
 
 On  our  way  back   we  stopped  by  2  places  for  the  fishing.  
 This  time  Shubhankar  took  out  the  longer  mosquito  net  and  we  layed  our  hands  on  some  puntius  sp.  and  some  shrimps  and  loaches.
 The  second  spot  got  us  lot  of  rasboras....that  was  an  easy  catch.  
 
 I  didnt  click  much  pics..
 Here  are  three  of  them..
 
 
 L  to  R
 Nikhil,Nilesh,Satish,Nilesh,Shubhankar  (in  Yellow),Alistair  (Behind)
 Saikumar,Prasad

 Had  a  great  time  collecting  the  driftwood  and  fishing.  It  felt  good  to  meet  the  mumbai  people.  I'll  keep  it  short.  All  I  can  say  is  that  we  had  a  great  time!
 Here  are  the  pics...

 Thank  you  very  very  very  much  Rohan,  Sai,  Shubhankar,  Ali,  Satish  ,  Nilesh  Senior,  Prasad  for  a  memorable  experience.
 
 Plus  -  got  a  souvenir  from  Shubhankar"SIR"  Wink  
 
 As  expected,  my  folks  where  surprised  to  understand  why  i  drove  all  the  way  from  Mum  to  Pune  -  for  a  piece  of  wood..  Sad  and  some  shrimps  +  fishes...  all  i  can  say  is  forgive  them  ohhh  IAH  members  for  they  do   not  know  what  they  r  missing  ....
 
 Cheers  !  and  more  such  trips  in  future...
