so gentlemen, the drag starts from Tidel park towards Adventure Zone. My driver who owns an SX4 tells me that the SX4 will beat the mistress as well as the 1.6 Palio. I'm eager to check on that

Nitrous, hope all well at your end. Ravin, all set?,

Our "chota bhai" is going to rock in his FZ16 with a elusive personal companion!

Your driver seems to be a rich man to own a SX4 yaar

Lets have a cheerful weekend than having Nitrous and Bottle cry all day after losing the drag.

Moreover, headers and his "driver" compete with men and not the boys.

Or the shake break, remember ? It was the shake break that was the nemesis for the mistress.

Ranjit seems to be all revved up. Vikram, by the way what happened to the Gypsy? Thought you were getting her along.
Chinna Payyan (Sutta Kambi) still seems to be confused about who the 'elusive companion' is so kindly elaborate Vikram.

So is this the final list?
1. petrol_head + 1
2. Nitrous
3. Headers + 2
4. Arka + 1
5. Hotrod + 1 [the elusive one]
6. Neoranjit
8. Bottle
7. Vijay_shekar +2 (only 24th)
8. Vinod_Nookala

John, You are in right?

Quick summary of Events

Day1

Left Chennai noonish and arrived at Adventure Zone at around 2. After a quick lunch we left to the grounds for some parasailing. We had to wait our turn while some people from Ford who had booked ahead took their turns. Sadly the wind died after about 45 mins and the parasailing event was cancelled.

The parasailing grounds had some sand pits and this led to an impromptu OTR Session immediately. This too was soon cut short after some really heavy showers landed upon us

Returned back to the camp for snacks after which there was an unforgettable card game followed by a screening on the History of Jeeps (dating to WW2) Sorry couldn't remember the exact title.

Day2

Returned back to the parasailing grounds for another OTR session. Were joined by a few other members from Jeep Thrills. This wound up at around 12 after which we got back to Adventure Zone and had a rappelling and rock climbing session on the rappell wall at Adventurezeone after which everyone wound up and returned to Chennai.

A huge thanks to Arkha for setting this up and to Major Roy for his hospitality

Nice report bottle, and good you put up that snap of the jeep with me trying to run you down. Where are the other photos by the way?

An awesome outing with a great set of people. Thanks to Arka for conceptualizing and executing the plan. Great hospitality from Major Roy's end. I shall upload my share of photos tomorrow with a few finer details as always. @ Vikram - No, No, its not what you are thinking

Default Thanks Arka

Thanks Arka for introducing me to the world of OTR's and for letting me drive one of your jeeps for a Lap. Thanks also for navigating me.

I enjoyed the sessions but not as much as I would have enjoyed taking my car to the places where your jeeps went. But obviously I had to chicken out because my " girl" was getting rubbed in all the wrong places and I could not take it.

Now I can Realise what you meant when you said that experience is required to preserve man and "machine" in the TPC.

Any way I shall keep attending your OTR's and once in a while try to do a Lap where my "girl" does not have to go thro the works.

@ Arka - Hey, what happened to those NDMS?? You back to these superslick sand(NO)grips?

Between you mentioned that 7.50-16 NDMS would be soon available in some other thread. Any update on that. I too am running almost similarly worn out sandgrips on my 550. Hoping for those 7.50 NDMS. If not will have to invest elsewhere before this monsoon.

cheers
