Oh that OTR was over exhilirating experience. Rehaan's Scorpio was having only 4 WD H. Low was not working, but he did very well all along. Last patch was the culprit, where his clutch got completely burnt out. Mammoth woudn't move an inch.

We tried in jeep to pull up a gradiant which was slushy and slippery. Could not budge a centi meter frankly. We sent one of the jeeper to a nearest village to get a tractor. Tractor came but failed in dragging the scorpio. Tractor was trudging every where on the 2 ft clayish mud soaked in rain which was lashing.

We abandened the tries and locked the scorpio and left it to be on itself, travelled back to bangalore at around 3 a.m.

Please refer to below thread.

Wonderful Pics ABS!!!
After I read your post it reminded me of the time when I first started off-roading and dint have my jeep ready!
From my house I used to take my Safari park it before the start of the OTR and then sit with the fellow jeepers of NIOC!!!
This was the time when I used to take the maximum number pictures and learnt quite a lot!!!
Great going buddy!!!

Default Trail exploration short drive

Guys it was a lazy sunday evening and few of our offroad folks decided to offroad and find some new trail. My jeep did not start due to water entry into starter motor due to watery OTR last week in palar. Decided to jump into devi prasads XDB. Went near Kelambakam area the same place where me and Arka had gone before to explore few weeks back. By the time we went there it was dark. Did manage to do some offroading.

Few shots missed but were worth clicking were the ocassion where Gopi (white Gypsy king) got stuck just before exit and Kartik Gypsy water fording.
