Default Bangalore Annual Offroading Event January 2012

Hi offroaders,

Like tradition follows, Bangalore Offroading event is a phenomenon which brings 4 WD friends from across. Though it is too early to post the actual dates of the event and OTR venue, Avaavalakonda qualifies for another chance, unless we have another trail brooding. MP Sreenivas will be every willing to host us at his Avaavalakonda land.

BODA's are summoned to do some search for new trail which will be able to take 100 vehicles and double the people on two day event including one night camping as usual.

Any suggestions on trail and dates, please pour in advance to streamline the arrangement. January 26th falls on thursday, means no chance of OTR on that day. Next option is 28th and 29th January being saturday and sunday. or 27th and 28th (friday and saturday) to enable outstation offroaders return to base on sunday.

After offroaders from across have experienced conflicts with authorities and locals, we have to be more careful this time. We can discuss about measures and the same are going to be strictly followed each and every participant.

Look forward to your feedback and suggestions.

Warm regards,
Dwarak

Hi Dwaraka,

We look forward to Aaavalakonda 2012.

My Suggestions
1) Keep the same setup in the same terrain.
The O-Team has good experience in organizing the event and are familiar with the surrounding area and necessary logistics.

2) Work out a few Trail Heads(Entry/Exit Points).

Do the shorter Trail on Day#1 as there are more vehicles and Longer Trail on Day#2 as the number decreases substantially.

3) Dates
27th Jan (Friday) - Meet up & Day#1 Night Stay
28th Jan (Saturday) - Day#2 & Drive back to Bangalore.

The Terra-Tigers eagerly look forward to this event.

Regards,

Arka

Dear Dwarak,
Would like to suggest, for Day 1,do the Uttar pinakini. (Uttar Pinakini part 2) and for Day 2,we can look at Avaalakonda or Solgere. However must mention that Solgere has limitation of handling maybe max 12 Jeeps. Why not split the Day 2 activity between Solgere and Avaalakonda? Reason is since most outstation jeepers have seen Avaalakonda and most locals have seen Solgere, switch locations for local jeepers and those of outstation.

That way we give best of both worlds to both local and Glocals(read as globals/outstation jeepers). I know taking the group to two diff locations requires massive planning and deployment of manpower,food arrangements etc etc. Reason am suggesting because Bangalore OTR in the past have attracted MAXIMUM participation and knowing bangalore authorities,thought to play safe and offer variety too.

Andy

Am available on all sundays from month of November if you require, for any recces.

Andy,

You have the answers too buddy. Bigger the crowd difficult to manage. soligere is strictly manned by Forest department and no thoroughfare.

Avalakonda poses tough challenge each time and terrain changes. Plus unexplored trails are so many. MP Sreenivas will be able comment best on it.

We want one more Avalakonda kind of trail. So exploration is needed.

I am definitely interested in coming. Do you think my car will be alright in the terrain? Don't know what it will be like.

By the time the event happens My ford Endeavour will be equipped with the following:

1. 2" ironman lift kit
2. Ironman underbody protection
3. Geolandar AT Tyres

I have a 4T tow strap, D shackles, tyre pressure gauge. Only thing missing is a rear tow hook. But for emergency situations we can attach shackles to the leaf springs I guess.

Please let me know if I can come.

Thank you,

-Vishnu

I dont think any LWB can tackle Avalkonda. Even gypsies gets stuck here and there as there is hardly any place left for the rear over hang to escape without scraping.

There was a lancruiser prado from our team this year.

Broken bumpers (front and rear)
I tyre totally damaged
Full body had to be repainted and what not.
Cladding broken.

Catch Zac and get a 4 inch lift + metal bumpers + rock sliders , then you will have a fair chance.
