Hey, very nice pictures in there Vinod. Looks like the Chennai 4x4 gang is increasing in strength -- as I see quite a number of vehicles that I have not spotted before.

Any plans for an OTR on Sunday Nov 1st? I will be in Chennai from 28-31st for work and would extend my stay if there is any OTR happening on the 1st.

Cheers,

Will ping you folks up and catch up any which way.
