total - Rs 2190 for 4 people.

I say comparable to a meal and movie at a multiplex. And any day better than that .

So when's the next OTR?

thats well put by chettri, OTR anyday better than watching a movie and a meal for that amount for a group of 4!

OTRs will give the real fun and live action, where as the movie you watch may turn out to be chandni roundabout to china!

If it would've then you would have found the real mud brutes outnumbered by the sheer number of city slickers..

And then you would have found a lot of scorpers like us also there doing mud-wrestling....

I am gutted that I will not be able to make it to this OTR as well. This is the second one I am missing.

The Gypsy is getting an electric fan fitted. Hope to have it back before the OTR but need to test it before I put it through the OTR!

Ankit, why is the electric fan taking so long. I dont think that its that long a job???
If vehicle is in drivable condition, get it to the OTR on Sat and then you can do the fan thing on Sunday

Hi Ankit,

OTR in Manesar is the best testing ground for your electric fan :-)

Cheers

Sarvider Sir/ Amit/ Harjeev

Its not just the electric fan. There are some other small bits that also needs doing. Plus my son has got viral fever yesterday, so now there is no chance.

Maybe an OTR on 10th April weekend (long weekend for Good Friday).

Sorry guys.

Ankit

Hi,

The pics are amazing. But I noticed a Jeep (UHV 6760) getting stuck rather awkwardly right at the beginning of the OTR. Seems the person was new to offroading as I have gone through many NIOC threads, and the members there are very careful while going through an obsticle. But the particular Jeep driver did not even guage the terrain and went head on for the drop. I bet by now the same driver would have gained experience beeing in company of the much experienced NIOC members and Mods.

Regards,

Autocraze
