No problem at all, Manu, as long as you dont mind the bench seat "comfort" in the Gypsy : my cousin will also most probably be coming with me.

Guys a suggestion. Please get someone to video the event in detail as the guys did for the Rajmachi trail. That video is mindblowing and anyone seeing it would want to go there. The gentleman who took it made a clear effort to document it all and introduce all the members. He added music too making watching it such a riot. We need to do the same for Chennai and make people want to come there from all over the country to experience the fun. Its a bit like marketing but its necessary to share all this fun on TBHP effectively. Even if its not about travelling across the country its about newbies to the sport getting attracted to it and getting into it.

What all of you are doing is very very vital for the whole sport of offroading to take off in India bigtime. The passion and commitment is there, now market it well too and we'll have the world of 4x4's on a blazing trail soon

I have a family thing that afternoon but I am definitely going to try. Count one LC80 as a probable.

Gears,
