Why don't we do a night Rajmachi?

Daytime, Rajmachi is just not the same. And yes, its getting hotter too.

Satan, great, a different SUV to the mix! Early morning start would be great. 5 am or earlier might be fun!

ebonho, I am assuming most of us are still getting hands dirty on offroading.. and our beasts are still little babies A night shootout sounds amazing, but I dont think I have the guts for that yet. Maybe the early start can be really early, so we get some remnants of night too?

Sure thing Siddhesh. Whatever suits the majority, I am in bro.

"Little babies" is just somehow not on the same planet of what springs to mind when one sees your "babies" either hunkering down together lined up or coming up at speed behind you and one gets this primal urge to run quickly away - far away!

My cousin owns a lovely farmhouse, and now also the Samali Resort. Let me know if you need any help there. Would love to join, we've been planning a Konkan drive. What's your plan... need company?

Dear All,
I am also interested in joining, but i have Mahindra Classic. Is this trail riding only for SUVs? if yes, then we (me & my firend) would come in Pajero. Otherwise i would love to take my jeep with all recovery gears to help SUVs, incase they get stuck somewhere.

Regards,
Shubhendra Singh

The recovery gear would be good to have, but I really hope we are not going to end up doing something that needs such drastic steps

3. Guderian - Fortuner
4. MonaroCV8 - Fortuner
5. jaysmokesleaves - ?
6. ebonho – Bullet
7. Satan - Gypsy
8. Shubhendra - Pajero or Mahindra Classic

Tentative :
1. Mikon - Passenger seat (with Throttleking)
2. amitwlele – Passenger seat (with siddheshb)
3. nawalsinghal - Passenger seat (with Throttleking).
4. Off Roadie & Daddy (kind of rhimes) - Snow (Scorpio 4wd)

Jay owns a Tata Safari 4wd.
This would be a nice way of comparing the off roading/soft road capabilities of the Endy Vs Pajero Vs Fortuner.

Looking forward to your expedition followed by its report and pics/videos.

Menu - I am sure we can rock this one. We can all pitch in with stuff, and have a party.
Ohh in fact I thought when all your butch babies are stucked, I will come to your rescue with my wonlee 4x2 power (read Rajanikanth) ha ha ha
