    Driving tips for newbies

    Dear Sagar, Thanks for your advice. Really appreciate you guys taking time out and giving valuable tips. The small ghat section at Lonavala was unexpected! Somehow managed it. These downward safety tips are very useful. I like your last line! I always like to drive safe, since I travel with the whole family.

    Dear Ranger, That's exactly my wife wants to go. Since we're driving mostly on NH44, not sure whether we can make it in a single drive without break.

    A trip to Warangal and Laknavaram

    Nice write up Jagan. Need one suggestion for Laknavaram overnight stay. Is it safe for a family to stay? I mean have you seen any family staying back during 🌃 time at Haritha resort... I was planning to stay in Warangal/HNK rather than near lake. This safari is from Toursim board or from private firm? Thank you.

    Dear Admin, Thank you for valuable tip. I was really unaware of this thing. Got a gyan by you and also from Sridhar. Learning is a continuous process!

    Dear Sridhar, First Big Thanks for your inputs. That's what I did and stayed in 2nd gear. In actual scene, exactly at the hair pin bend another vehicle was coming down.So I applied little brake then move ahead. That's an experience!

    Thanks a lot for your valuable inputs especially hill descending tips.😁
  7. Hello all, This is my first post in the forum. As my status suggest, i'm newbie here☺️ My profile; Total experience behind wheels: less than 1 year Total kms traveled: below 8k (with only 1 long drive ~1600kms i.e; Hyd-Pune-Mumbai-Aurangabad-Nanded-Hyd in Sep 2017) Car owned: Baleno petrol manual transmission. Travellers: Me, better half, 2 kids (10Y, and 5Y) Before posting as a new topic, i browsed all the topics for the topic to start. My intention is to take expert tips from all expert guys like you. Kindly bear with me if you find these queries childish, as i can't change stepney by myself! 1. During ascending on ghat road (which i observed on Lonavala ghat road), i drive in 2nd gear. At the hair pin curve, applied full accelarotor, as i felt my vehicle may not move further. Scary experience. Is it normal? Somebody suggest me to use 1st gear for those ascending hair pin curve... 2. I have read lot of experience of driving in Wayanad. With my above experience can I hit the road? Planning this October holidays after getting 3rd service done. My wife drive well if the roads are well mainatained like NH44. 3. Does Nitrogen gas really helps for better maintenance of the tyres? I will continue post my queries here in this forum, if i get some response as I believe in learning is continuous process until you die! Note: I start exploring the forum very recently. Had i read all the post before my unplanned tour to Mumbai, i would never taken the route of NH65 especially from Omerga to Sholapur😩. Thank you for your time and valuable inputs.
