Basic Personal Essentials

Water - At least one Gallon per person, per day if not more. Drier, hotter climates may require more. Remember: Alcohol doesn't hydrate. In fact alcoholic beverages dehydrate since it take more water to metabolize alcohol than the beverage contains. Plus it may cause you to require the above mentioned First Aid Kit.
Food - Bring food for twice the amount of time you are planning on being gone. Should you be delayed and have to spend a night out on the trail, you wont have to worry about going hungry. Good ideas for trail food: trail mix, beef jerky, fruits, dry/canned food, etc.
Extra Cloths - Nobody likes to sit in wet cloths or an extended period of time.
Personal items - This includes toilet paper, anti- microbial hand cleaner, etc
Sun block
Rain Jacket
Communication devices - Cell Phone, CB Radio, GMRS/FRS radios
Power inverter if necessary (e.g. Cell phone recharger, battery recharger for communication devices and camera)
Trash bags - Keep your trails clean
Maps, information about the area
Compass or GPS
Water purification tablets

Versatile Items

Duct Tape
Bailing wire
wood blocks - Useful as chock blocks, jacking platforms, ramps, suspension supports (for broken torsion bars)
Bungee cords, several in multiple sizes - good for securing gear, temporary repairs, etc.
Rope lengths
Super glue
Epoxy
Tie wraps
rags
Work Gloves, leather

Went for the first time with the Extreme Offroaders Gang. Wow ,it was my first Otr and we had lots of fun. Sadly my Landcruiser " Free Spirit" got struck as my 4x4 was not working. My mechanic forgot to lock it (its electronic turned to Manual) and I trusted him.It was a learning experience for me that all checks should be made before hand by oneself and not trust anyone else.
I am sure all the participants will enjoy the obstacles and the trail. I will stop writing more about the obstacles and the trail otherwise I will be accused of leaking the Exxam paper.
Wish and pray that the event will be a great sucess.

This is what i suggest. Who ever wants to participate as a spectator, please put down your names here.

Drivers who have space in their vehicles for passengers and are willing to give a seat to to others, please inform us when you confirm your entry.

Once we have full data, we will inform the passengers which car they will be paired with on a first come first serve basis.

Passengers, you will have to help out the vehicle driver and follow his instructions.
I have registered & also booked a place in hotel. But I am yet to find a seat from bombay.

Somebody help please, its my first OTR

Everyone who doesn't have a seat will be given one after they finish the registration formalities on Saturday morning in lonavla.

Edit: Vickram, you have to make arrangements to come to lonavla and back on your own.

Default suggestion

Dear Team,

It would be good if all participants can be provided with a concise 1/2 pager word doc/pdf which contains imortant handy information. We could keep a hard copy (preferably laminated) with ourselves and also stick on the vehicles before leaving. Would be of great help especially in case of phone batteries going dead or say lost phones.

Some things that I feel it could include

1. All important phone numbers and email ids
2. Addresses of hotels & venue
3 Important deadlines about reaching the venue. Arrival & departure timings for each day and sub event

It won't take much effort & I feel would of good use.

P.S. I volunteer to prepare the soft copy
