O team is out trail scratching. Once trail is scratched, everything will shape up around it! For the out of town 'regulars' there is always place.

Wait, I may just have you arm wrestle the Gulbarga gang . which reminds me that I have to call them.

Just as the Met department starts planning for the arrival of monsoons, the BAAPs (consortium of usual suspects from Bombay, Alibag and Pune ) have started planning for Maha Monsoon Madness (MCUBE 2012), the annual gathering of offroaders in the verdant hills around Mumbai.

So please pencil in your calendars for the weekend of July 6-7 (Friday - Saturday).

Apply for those leaves, look up at the sky and appease the rain gods, but more importantly tell Gopal, Janniah, Mhd Ali, Razak, Bimesh (insert favorite local mechanic here) that your jeeps/gypsys must be ready by then.

More details will unveil as we firm out the specifics, but for now we are off to find THAT trail!

And if the thought of meeting such wonderful people does not motivate you, then here is some terrain that surely will...
Hi Genesis

Thanks for the early head up, and great to see the MH off-roaders unite for another off-road season.

Regards,

Arka

I guess even my truck would be out of action from the trail :(

@spawnofsatan: If you value your range rover classic with 32" MT tyres, I would bring the 550

Genesis,

Hahaa, you have just managed to scratch the surface.

We are certain the track will be the best as you all are gifted with one of the best off roading terrain in India, plus an experienced O team who are so familiar with it, who know what to design for the famished off roaders.
Regards,

Hello. Interesting to see that you all are ready with such gung-ho. How does a new comer fits in ???. I have acquired a 550 but without any major mods. I have got MRF's all terrain tyre and I am pretty keen on joining this excursion.

Dear captvicky:

550: Good. AT tyres: Scary. Not having offroaded before: Not Okay

Given the level of the trail, and potential slush we feel it will prove to be challenging/dangerous for you and has the potential of slowing down other participants.

It would be best to get some experience in smaller weekend OTRs first.

Will ping you when we go out on one of these.

Thanks Genesis. I understand that completely. I will changed to MT before you guys go for a smaller excursion. That way I can get some hands on off roading skill. Will wait for your response.

I doubt if the AKC team will sit pretty, Are they organizing AKC at their current location

Kunal, I hope you are in a Jeep Land, and if you plan to have your AKC there, will be glad to join in


Cheers!!
