yeah, i screwed my vehicle in last OTR. Heavy rains must have contributed to it i guess.

Arka i hope the walazabad side will not be blocked with heavy water flow on entry. Lets hope we dont spend our time searching for entry points.

Fording is one thing.
God Forbid, Having yourself and the vehicle washed away is another.

Give it a waterwash, especially the underbody areas and lubricate the joints
