Vinod Nookala,

Both the jeeps are MM550's. Terrain is ideal for off roading and camping on top of the hillock. Rudra Sen heard elephant trumpeting while we were riding through the jungle trail. Some villagers were pointing towards a hillock through the jungle and they see elephants in herd, but non of us could see them either through naked eye or through massive zoom lens.

When it rains, the trail becomes challenging to the core.

well it wasan EXPERIENCE, right from waking up early to coming home pooped.
My first OTR adn I had a blast, I got to drive the Madzuki too. It is crazeeee.
I had to be cajoled by Shahnavaz to not drive it like a car and then I saw it do wonders.
The rock crawler is exactly what ist says it crawls over anything. The pics do no justice to what actually happens.

Cheers
to all the off roading guys keep it up!!!!

Had the lunch in a nice shady and rocky region. Oh, forgot to mention those custom-built Dinning table


Then while we were about to leave, Dwarak's Gypsy got in to trouble and refused to start. Our Siddharth tried his level best to take off all the wires of the color he hated, but all in vein.

So, we decided to test the winch Vijay's MM550 had. Umm, i would say it was a cake walk, may be due to the light weight of the gypsy.

Then to take it down to the starting point, we had other vijay's (star_aqua) jeep. Look at yourself how it was towed!
