Fantastic Off-Roading with a bunch of great off-roaders.

Some pictures from my end to sumarize the day. Unfortunately, I did not take the pictures at the second obstacle.

Thanks, Nazim.

It sure was fun, inspite of being towed back to Prabhu's place. Hopefully, it would not be an expensive affair and I shall be back for the next OTR.

We do miss the official photographer in you.

Cheers,

Hi,
Just wanted to say a big thank you to Hydera - Baddies who made it such an enjoyable afternoon. Great camaraderie. And great handling of the recovery vehicle! (Thar rescuing the MM)

Pls. pass on my thanks to the non - TBhpians who were there.

A correction! Though I have done a fair bit of off-roading, it was by compulsion. If I see an obstacle, my first thought is 'do I have to tackle it? Is there a way in which I can avoid it?' Certainly not a person who goes looking for obstacles to slay!

Guys, one small observation. In a group setting, you need to choose a leader. For choosing which obstacles to try, and for deciding on recovery strategies.

Once again a big THANK YOU to all. Esp. Aniruddha for inviting me to tag along.

@Pulsar56: I think I met you in N. Bengal. Should have told me then that you were into off roading. Would have given you different route suggestions then!

Regards
Sutripta

Please post the pictures fast especially of the Gypsy recovery by me!

The agenda for 3rd is to have a wilderness trail interspersed with obstacles on the lines of MGE. Venue will be decided in a day or two. Please feel free to suggest location if you know any.

Oh yes we did have fun but this is just the start. Please stay hooked to this thread for upcoming adventures.

As regards to the Gypsy, water went inside the engine most likely from the breather. But Ardy with his quick thinking switched off the engine. Even though there were no tell-tale signs of water having seeped into the engine, we didn't start it as ECM was also drenched. The vehicle was towed to the workshop which saved it from massive damage.

Thank you sir!
But, till date, I have never driven a Jeep! Right now, I am happy photographing the events!
The route you suggested to us was based on the GC of Ravendra's Laura which was our ride then!
