Hey Buddy,

Don't know whether I'll find time to do a full event report at this time. I just uploaded the handful of snaps I managed to click.

The recoveries were pretty easy in most cases since it was just pulling everyone who had their tyres dug into the sand. Given the 8000 lbs load rating on the winch, I was a bit surprised by the way it could pull a Fortuner stuck on a 45 deg incline. We were initially planning to have another jeep assist with a tow rope just to make sure there's enough pulling power, but the winch just did it effortlessly.

You're right, for a debut OTR, the winch saw a lot of action. And it emerged a winner each time too.

Terrific, I was able to understand well even though I don't know Tamil. BTW, the reason that Jeep toppled is clear, the tyre pointing away from the tilt. See 13:43 & 13:53 video position. It is covered early in Arka's offroad syllabus.

I like the 5:22 onwards when everyone is standing like a millitary unit parade.

As for the topple look like someone missed a few classes and I could not see anyone spotting or correcting him.

I personally dont think it was very wise for that one guy to get on the right hand side/practically under the jeep trying to push it up.
Pulling it down from the other side would have been much safer.
