Default Jaipur OTR - Search begins for a nice trail.

Yes it is Team-bhp-NIOC OTR in Jaipur. We did it on Sunday morning. 'We' - yes only one Jeep and two folks.

Now that my jeep is serviced, tested, essentials taken care of and fully 4x4 ready (except tyres), it was time to pull my socks up and start first of our regular planned weekend OTR in Jaipur.

My friend Vivek, who also share similar interest, got really interested after seeing my last NCR-OTR pics, accompanied me and we started at 6.30 from my home.

Our plan was to search for a nice trail which should not be too far but should have good features, not very difficult (as we were only one jeep and first timers). In Jaipur we are lucky to have our share of Aravali Hills so we were confident that there won't be much problem.

We tested one dirt track, few villages, many soft roads and then we saw a gate in the fence toward hills. There was a small temple and behind that was a pleasure for offroaders. Full 4x4 terrains. We had lot of fun and thrill. Took little extra risk at few spots and did them successfully, coz I had experience of attending two NIOC-OTRs.

Finally we found a nice picnic spot way up on the hill and a nice terrain to reach there.

We took very few photos and videos, here they come.

We finished this one soon as Vivek had appointments at 10. But from next time we plan to do 7 AM to 1 PM.

(My jeep is CL 340DP. The Classic stickers are add ons, I havenít removed them yet as the kids like that.)

Hi Yogesh,

Great going buddy. Nice OTR.

Sarab is right 3 is a good number as at times you need 2 jeeps to pull you out. You can be more adventureous.

But its a great start. Keep it up. Pls make sure ther are 2 vechiles, tow ropes and shakles.

This is the way to start and the group keeps on growing and multiplying.

Check the area behind Amer fort had attended the Ford & Willys rally. There are very nice climbs there.

Hope to see you in delhi for the next NIOC OTR on your Jeep

Redgs

Amit

Great Yogesh
Post the rest of the pics.
We ourselves did an OTR on saturday, its bad you were not there. Make sure you are there the next time, but only if you get the goodies from Jaipur.
I've heard alot about those stuffed mirchi pakoras. There are a Jaipur specialty.

Amit is right. I too think that atleast 2 vehicles is advisable for an OTR and as Sarab has pointed out the minimum what we guys do for a recce is 3 vehicles.

But you an alfa is a good start and once you start gaining popularity the Japiur group will in no time start gaining members.
Best of luck

Hi, carry a tirfor and a long rope with you. The tirfor is a very versatile recovery device which will get you out of practically any trouble. Then you can offroad alone confidently!

I have also noticed that you have alot of rocks and boulders at the place where you do off roading.
So why not invest in a good quality winch, then there is no harm in venturing alone.

Hi Yogesh

Excellent job buddy. Looks like you are loving your 4x4! As advised by Sarab and Amit, it is always good to have a couple of jeeps with you.

Hope to see you with your jeep at the next OTR.

Cheers
Ankit

Hey thanks Amit, Harjeev, Ankit, Sarab. I had that point in my mind, but you see someone has to start first. I was very cautious but still one doesn't know when the jeep gets stuck.

I think Alfa's Jeep is going to take more time. Others I know either don't have 4x4 or don't have a jeep. So I will have to go alone till the time there is another one. But will take along ropes and shakles.

Hi Randeep, I would love to acompany you to the workshop. Hope you are coming on Saturday so that we can keep an OTR early morning on Sunday 5th April.

Anyone else want to join are most welcome. Alfa, Deky?

My first preference would be to take you along, but as we live in two different corners of Jaipur it becomes a bit dificult. I will search Google to see what is trifor. When is your Jeep getting ready?

Thats a nice idea... I will plan so I get free time on weekend of 11th when I come to delhi, as i want tyres, hooks, ropes as well as if we get a good winch.

@ Ankit, Kandisa: Thanks buddys.

Great going buddy. keep it up. That's the spirit and nice to see 4x4/off-road enthusiasts all over the country.

As others have mentioned, do have at least 1 more jeep/4x4 with you.

BTW, nice terrain for some good rock/boulder climbing.
