Great pics. Im glad you guys enjoyed on your maiden OTR. Now that the bug had bitten you, be prepared to get restless until the next otr comes along. I like the way the machines were performing. The Safari and the Sumo Grande seemed very adept. At least thats what the pics and videos show. The Endevour has a very torquey engine but is a bit bouncy.

Greta initiative and effort and let me tell you, you guys enjoyed it so much because you were all like minded and went in a small group. Unless there is proper planning, a large group should not indulge discovery otrs.

Kudos to your effort.

Oh, there are already plans afoot for the next event... And yes, a small group is fun... but 3-4 more SUVs would have added some more punch!

Here are some pics from my cam... have a couple of vids too, will upload them after they are processed

Today was just amazing.
Thank You
1) Siddesh for taking the initiative
2) Throttle King for organizing and the frozen thumbs up
3) Monaro CV8 for the live (multi)media broadcasting you carried out throughout the event
4) everyone else for being there and making the event a great success.

It made my two night stay in Pune completely worthwhile and has left me hungry for more. The best part is that on the way home my Mom was asking, 'So when is the next trip going to take place?'

I'll post the pics taken by my dad tomorrow, had left the camera to him and was just enjoying the drive.

What was interesting was the way each of us had a different take on the terrain
OffRoadie ...the most technically perfect poised controlled calm text book 4wd driving.
Siddeshb ...the automatic endy handled with gay abandon not worried about the scratches powering up with all4 wheels willing to explore the terrain .
Throttleking ..driving stye was like a machine gun staccatto burst of power as and when needed with his 2wd safari.
Me the sumo with the Sumo with no option(with our combined weight)but to just go for it hell for leather.
And to think that on tarmac we just break for the smallest pothole .
The mix of people was perfect
THE SENIORS ..allowing us to indulge in our antics yet instilling in us some discipline(by just being there) so that things went smooth.
THE PHOTOGRAPHRS...going to great lengths vertically and horizontally for those action shots.
THE PILOT ...vtech on his bull leading the beasts herding them and pointing out the best places for the action.
MY friends who i had got along for the sole purpose of pushing the grande in case i got stuck.
last but not the least
THE TWO LOVELY LADIES who ensured that all were fed (left on our own think the men would have just chomped down on the fruits n cake without bothering to cut them up nicely).

What an adventure it was. Had a great time jumping all over inside TK's Safari.
I was supposed to ride my Bull but would've missed all fun & on the fly jokes with Monaro CV8, Racerx and Throttleking.

Running & clicking the offroading thrill was equally exciting.
sierrakamat (Doc), you rock with your Grande. Your SUV is very tastefully accessorised & looks HOT. Your punches & one liners were hilarious & you crushed everything that came in your way while offroading.

OffRoddie, man you are a real experienced OffRoddie. You did it all without any fuss. How coolly your Scorpio & you climbed the uphills which looked like very tough ones.

Very happy to meet you all siddheshb, sierrakamat (Doc), vtec_guy, Monaro CV8, Ninjatalli, RacerX OffRoddie, honeybee, ninjatalli and all others that I missed to mention.

Looking forward for more adventures & meets!

Good to see you people had a great time & can't explain how disappointed I am on missing this block buster meet. . Hope a similar meet is planned sooner than later. Thanks all for sharing these wonderful pics of great moments you guys had (which we dropouts missed).

Hope to be a part of next meet whenever it happens. Keep it up guys.

Congrats on a wonderful and successful weekend escape. Good to see you all had a great time. Your group size was ideal.

This trail is most fun in the monsoon and i will surely join you guys when you plan one then. July is the best time. Ive got loads of recovery gear too, just incase. But in the monsoon some sections are very tricky/not do able for 2wd's and might need some towing.
There is another route that goes to the Bori bungalow. Seems you guys missed that stretch.

Cheers,
Jay

Great pics and accounts of the OTR meet. Especially refreshing to see it from different perspectives. It would be fabulous to see some more pics coming up.

I would have loved to be a part of this one, but the very fact that I gave up trying mid last week says a bit about the importance of my plans on Sunday

I hope the truck owners will be kind enough to do an encore sometime later this year when I can participate. I am sure some inexperienced people with mouths wide open (not only for food, which is becoming quite a tempting habit now!) will be welcome at all such meets.
