Long weekend drive from NCR: Notes to myself

1.Never ever plan a drive to any place of remote interest to Dilliwalas on a long weekend. The roads will be choc-a-bloc with rashly driven cars and SUVs,the public restrooms can put a refugee camp to shame and the hotels will charge you just about enough to be manageable by selling one kidney.
2.All shops and restaurants will run out of IMFL and paneer( Kadhai, Butter masala, Malai, Methi, Mutter all types). Soya chaaps will be sold out by saturday afternoon.
3. If its a hill station, road-side garages will make a neat packet patching up burnt clutch-plates and changing brake pads.
4. Prepare for dents, dings, scratches and long queues if god forbid someone blows a turbo/ tyre/ head-gasket bang in the middle of a hairpin.
5. Carry 5 litres of water, electral and energy bars. Wear comfy shorts, a nice sun-glass and drink lots of kadak adrakwali chaai.
