Since it is your first time, you must do the most off roading! Dont worry we will guide you in every step. All you need is the nack and you can pick up things pretty quickly.

One of the first "lessons" i learnt about taking videos at OTRs ....never to shoot continuously, to avoid this very problem. I usually stop and restart the video shoot at 2 mins, so that the file is of manageable size.

But of course, there are s/w available to split the video file into smaller sections the way you want.

Just convert it to MP4 and the size will shrink dramatically. There are free SW available on the net for this conversion.

ONLY members with 4WDs are allowed. Those who do not have 4x4s please tie up with other members, as there is no place to park the cars, near the OTR spot.

Terrain - Sand/Slush and water crossing.

BlueThunder, 4x4addict, RedOne, look forward to seeing you again.

Itinerary

0630 - Meet up opposite OTA/Trident Hilton.

0830 - Wallahjahbad

0900 - OTR

1230 - Drive back to Chennai/Mahabs

1430 - Lunch.

Regards,

Arka

PS - Ram.West and Fiery Enzyme, it was wonderful to have your friends over, we look forward to meeting them again. Please confirm ASAP.

Hi chennai offroaders,

Good to see lot of offroadings from chennai chapter. I would advice separate thread for each OTR, as we are getting confused about which OTR , when , who all , etc. It will be easy for us to keep track with fresh threads for every OTR and relate experiences.


Happy offroading.
