Default Pics Part1

23rd Afternoon/Evening.

While waiting for the sea breeze to pickup we tried a few ditches for the beginners.

But because of the overcast sky the wind was erratic and very strong, and finally we it started to rain, so we had to co to the campsite.

Before dinner we screened the History of WW2 JEEPs.

Sorry about the delay. Here are a few from my end

1.Waiting for our turn to go up up and away while the Ford guys were having their turn. If you can notice to the extreme left, its actually Arka warming up to 2 days of rib tickling humor at pilot's expense. Pilot is now fondly called Hotrod aka Sutta Kambi aka Lightning rod aka minnal kambi aka chinna payyan aka chotta bachcha aka aka aka aka..... the list goes on
Off Road into the SKY (Chennai)-picture-004.jpg

2. Raghav all set to take off. Trembling knees and jittery spine amongst other things as he prays to the lord almighty. He was the only person to get a chance to go up (in the literal sense) that day since he was the only person besides minnal kambi to weigh below 60 kgs.
Off Road into the SKY (Chennai)-picture-014.jpg

3. After numerous aborted take off attempts, Raghav finally gets airborne while minnal kambi trembles in his pants as he prepares to get up there 10 minutes later. Luckily though he never had to do it since the winds dropped and we had to pack up.
Off Road into the SKY (Chennai)-picture-016.jpg
Off Road into the SKY (Chennai)-picture-017.jpg

4. Raghav, Raghu and Varun smiling their way to glory around Major Roy's Jeep. Last Heard Dabur lal dantmanjan (tooth powder) was looking for new models.
Off Road into the SKY (Chennai)-picture-036.jpg

5. The beasts with the Scarlet Ferrari in the background. If you can look close, you will find sutta kambi in Major's jeep trying to get airborne for an inverted flight. So Mr. Pilot, did you manage to find the answer to that question?
Off Road into the SKY (Chennai)-picture-038.jpg

6. Arka briefing the group while everyone pays attention to the captain.
PS - No, Sutta Kambi is definitely not trying to bully Arka though it might look so. lol
Off Road into the SKY (Chennai)-picture-053.jpg

7. From left - Varun's Scarlet Ferrari, Vikram's RWD Lada, Bottle's Palio 1.6 and the famous mistress belonging to the one and only nitrous. Now the informative, revealing, instructive and enlightning conversation between Nitrous and Sutta kambi through the night is part of irreversible history.
Off Road into the SKY (Chennai)-picture-055.jpg

8. And it starts to pour towards the end of Day 1. We had a prelude to the Tambaram Drift with the cars being driven sideways on sliperry mud en-route to the camp site. Guess Vikram would had had the most fun with his RWD.
Off Road into the SKY (Chennai)-picture-052.jpg

9. Vijay Shekar's Pajero - It was sad that we did not get to see much of this beauty as the excessive rear overhang got the better of it on every decline.

1. Ironical? Gypsy man and family on board a Jeep The little princess, Sneha seems to prefer the Jeep to the Gypsy. Vikram, don't you wish you had retained your Jeep? lol
Off Road into the SKY (Chennai)-picture-035.jpg

2. En-route to the para-sailing grounds. The convoy driving through the villages sure did receive some attention.
Off Road into the SKY (Chennai)-picture-059.jpg

3. The Jeep twins parked side by side all ready to get down and dirty.
Off Road into the SKY (Chennai)-picture-058.jpg

4. Yellow Yellow Dirty Fellow. Raghav perched on top of major's Jeep.
Off Road into the SKY (Chennai)-picture-075.jpg

5. Her word was our command. The youngest Jeeper. WINNER TPC 2019
Off Road into the SKY (Chennai)-picture-092.jpg

6. Vikram cooking some Doughnuts with his RWD Lada.

7. Now here is Raghav taking his turn at sutta kambi while Arka takes a break.

Default Pics Part-2

Hotrod was busy explaining the principles of FLIGHT. (different from what he was explaining to Nitrous at night punctuated by LED Flashes), since you guys did not understand you all had a laugh.

Fantastic snaps of Vinod's jeep. Looks like I missed quite a lot. Sutta Kambi et all.
@ Vikram, your RWD looks cool.

You guys seemed to have had a great weekend. Seems like a good practice session before the Palar Challenge?
