This was my first OTR and will definitively not be the last. A hearty thanks to Srinivas Sir, Ravi Sir, Suresh Sir, GV Sir, Sanju and Babu for their advice, help and suggestions. Made some nice friends in Madhu (Gypsy), Parag (1963 Willys) and got acquainted with all the unique id names on teambhp/facebook. (Chetan).

The fun and action began for me from the time we assembled at Total Mall, Sarjapur Road. Having seen a line of jeeps on teambhp, it was an out of this world experience to be actually a part of it.

GV sir was probably the best spotter an amateur could get; clear-cut instructions and very simple techniques. Of course despite that, me and my friend found ourselves in the centre of jeeper attraction when we went out of control in a obstacle and almost fell on our side.

My jeep is proud to have its very own battle scars - twisted and bent side steps, shrubs stuck in the under body, mud cakes all over, new noises and vibrations. Will take jeep to garage by October 1st (Salary Day )

I could write more but my muscles were both sore and excited

I dint have a camera, so putting up whatever a simple Nokia and Sony Ericsson could handle.

While returning home (R.T.Nagar), we (a friend and i) crossed your house and saw the Trax, standing in its grandeur. We were wondering why you had not come, untill your post appeared now.

Get well soon.

Awesome pics!

I really wanted to tag along but had some prior commitments. Met (rather accosted) Mr. Achyut (I hope I got the name right) near Dommasandra crossing, he was more than willing to take me with him but alas! :(

Would definitely like to join the gurus for some gyan during the next OTR, hope it happens soon...

Yes we were having an OTR in Bangalore after some time and it was a good outing. The number of obstacles were less but they did test us out and i personally enjoyed it. Was testing the modifications made in my jeep for the last 6 months and boy did she perform. Despite getting stuck royally in two place she did all other obstacles with aplomb . Putting some pictures that I have .
