Packed my tent & camping stuff, I Did a test run on how to pile it all on the bike & finally am in bed by 2245, having closed doors n windows in my room I go to bed, nice & toasty , very comfortable.
Have closed the house too as it's cold outside, no cold fresh air comming in. ( not advisable)

Had requested my aunt from a few blocks away to drop by 0630 hours to see me off. N she did come, her knocking made me wake up n I opened the door, i stood outside the door with her, as I gulped the fresh air I was ready to go. I was in fact dying to get on with the trip
Clock 0640 hrs
BASICALLY HAVING SLEPT WITH WINDOWS CLOSED N THE STALE AIR HAD EFFECTED ME ( never do it)

( Machette & his ride )
0810 I was on the road off to kolkata for the first leg of my journey.
First stop was at 1015 hours, I was at behragora 105 km from house
Food was egg- tarka & roti at hotel durga.
I was on the rtoad again
I knew when Jharkhand ended as the roads were really good n barely a pothole in sight as I rode into West Bengal,
am in 2nd state on this trip.
The villages mostly had flashing lights to warn motorists of people crossing ot
Manned the crossings it was a pleasure to ride for the next 200 km
As I reached dankuni 25 km from the city, speed limit was followed by all , n traffic was slow, real slow
Traffic fines sure meems to have worked making folks follow the law.
1430 hours saw me at saltlake base camp for next two days.
