hey headers
How are you man? Not seen...dont let the recession effect you so much
Yes, we had good time, last section was tough..almost everyone thought only SWB jeep can do that, Devi's MM50 struggled, but mitsubishi L200 with chikki and some additional dose of liquid fuel could clear the obstacle.

This terrain is more challenging during monsoons no doubt!!!

Well the black jeep which is for sale has become green

In the process he couldnt prevent damaging his tail lamps.

P.S manpower was used as the gypsy got stuck where no other vehicle could reverse and position itself.
Hmmm you have posted the picture.... I was thinking of sharing it today but you did it.

Vinod you missed the episode, I rolled the soft top down after damaging it big time. Not only the tail lamps actually the front parking lights, soft top and rear tail lamp have all damaged. But fixed in the very next day, now my beauty again back to normal recovering all the damages.

trammway,
i didnt know about additional damage, i was busy exploring how to get out of that place beyond the lake bund. When i came back saw you stuck deep in the mud. I must admit your classic was very good offroad with lot of grunt. However i think you should have reversed up the trail instead of trying the steep mud wall perpendicular to the stream bed.

Wel you would say now whats the fun in taking the easier route???

Well .

P.S- Post some pics if you have

Amazing snaps...hey Vinod, nice to see you and pat and a few other regulars back in action there...do you remember me?

Think back to Ooty OTR in December 2007 - walk to the lake beyond the forest and sitting there.
