I envy you people on your blessed surroundings. Cheenai is the worst place for that matter The heat is so much that after Jeep thrills-4A no one even dared to venture out.

It was a breeze. The SPoA helps in passing over obstacles without a second thought and you just drive through. No scraping, just put the tyres on obstacles and move on. Also the lockers come in handy -- even when any of the tyres are in the air (so no need to shake the vehicle to get traction). The rock crawler gearset allows you to literally crawl up inch by inch and on descents use no A B C

Though the articulation has increased a magnitude, it is still not where i would like it to be. It needs to be even more and it is the dampers that need to be modified for even more extreme articulation. yes,

What about Dwaraka's new 1.8 ISZ powerhouse?
It REALLY is a powerhouse now. It has LOADS of low end torque and climbed very nicely -- unlike stock gypsy's where you have to rev it up.

I don't know if people took pictures of it. By the time people joined in there I had already crossed it. Also, due to the SPoA/No Rear over hang advantage, I had the freedom to take the straight down path -- rather than come in at an angle.

The pictures would be similar to how it was last time. here is the picture that Rudra took

Having seen lots of Gypsy's and jeeps being used in the city, I did not know what these vehicles were capable of achieving. All this changed during this OTR (which was my first OTR).
All the pics and narrations here do not do justice to the terrain or the vehicles.
It was quite an experience to see someone "walk" his jeep up a slope.
The joy on people's faces on completing a climb / decent.
(Though I am not sure if the drivers were more excited or the village kids)
The mud bath scenes of vehicles splashing and sliding around.
(Again the villagers had called others from neighboring villages to watch the "show")

Though the pics give a snapshot of the fun, the participants will be seeing the pics and playing the video of the excitement in their minds.

I for one am looking toward the next OTR (armed with a camera this time) for more fun and excitement.

Very nicely worded post Ajay. I share the same thoughts too. It was my second OTR driving my own Jeep. There were a lot of offroad learnings, not to mention feedback and understanding my Jeep better. Fantastic terrain, friendly bhpians and vehicles that performed really well. I am still re-living those moments through these pictures.
