I think we can expect heavy rains and showers and slush on this OTR?

The Hindu : News / National : Depression over north Bay of Bengal



Seems to be too Northerly but sometimes these things influence cloud formations really far off.

Ram ,

Thank you for advice and wishes. This river is dry for ages and even in monsoon, no water flow.

Dear MPS, Dwarak & Viji Sir,

We had a great time Off roading on sand (bit disappointed since we had to skip the dunes) and pleasure meeting the TBHPians.

MP Sir Thank you very much for the hospitality.

Hope you guys enjoyed the trail yesterday,
had to return back early due to personal commitments.

Looking forward to more such events.

Regards,

Kaushik

Sundays hangover or monday blues ? Not a single picture posted yet !!!

As we do not have samurai or Jaggu in this OTR, so no OTRlog .

I am attaching pictures taken by my friend who accompanied me for tie OTR.

(Do not have many pictures, so posting what ever I have with me)

The initial line up and drive to the sand bed:

There was another group doing a OTR on a different river bed for TPC 2011 at the same time. The only difference between this group and the other would have been the temperature.

While I guess the Blr boys were comfortable at 29 -33 Degrees, the Chn ones were roasting at 39 -41 degrees.
