Finally off-roading happened,many rides got stuck,ride show off's happened..worst is about to come:
After removing Pdev's MONSTAR with alot of efforts from 20-25guys pushing from behind lifting his ride and 2 Gypsys pulling it out with chains and towing clip,one of the gypsy clutch plate burnt and gave up the car stalled,Pdev removed the towing hook and we started towing this with his car,after a lot of efforts and difficult slopes we managed to tow the gypsy,at one point all decided that we must divide the load from one gypsy and move to the other so me and nirmal went to imran's gypsy,i was sitting in front and nirmal at the back,it started drizzling and we also switched on out Headlights,which devang suggested that we switch off the lights of our car as he could not see the road ahead and it was already getting darker and long way to go,everone was exhausted by then,and only 6-7of us left rest all went way ahead to remove the other 2 trapped cars,As we switched off the lights we did not see a slight turn and our gypsy took off a small hill at the side hit the tree hard and toppled..we all were stunned for a second that what happened,suddenly the gypsy rested all 3 of us on the ground shakey,everone shouting at eachother,weather they are ok,hope their hands legs or anything is not trapped under the car,Thanks to GOD everything was normal,except for some bruises and a swollen left shoulder and ruptured left elbow of mine,we came out every buddy was shocked seeing it live from the gypsy ahead.We figured out what exactly happened and saw that the toppled gypsy was resting on the tree and the massive tyres at the side,and below was a deep fall.... here are some pics.

Hope the swelling and the bruises heal fast,i am not able to ride my bike or drive my car,it pains like hell......

I hope you guys would be more careful the next time. Its just not worth the risk trying to return on mountain trails in the night and that too during monsoon. Glad you got off with minor bruises. Do please agree on a general rule that no one drives at night on trails.

BTW what brand and size are these mud terrain tyres?

Mumbai Gang: Pleaseeeeeeeeeee be careful and take precautions. No fun in doing 4x4 when life is at risk.

I do hope that you all will NOT do off-roading at night.


You all are seasoned 4x4'ers and should eb setting examples for others to emulate.
