Shore is badly dug up and gets stuck and is towed out by CJ. Wonders what is powering that CJ??!!

MM 2 manages to cross and then get stuck and is winched out by CJ with Truck in tow.

Great pics guys, we can only envy you guys for the beautiful climate and excellent terrain.. Where did you all planned for this OTR there was no news on T-bhp.

What was pulling the front raised jeep, its being pulled with lots of power (is it with winch), plus the guy standing on it looks a bit risky. Overall great OTR.

Dwarak sir, thanks for organizing that lovely OTR.

We had to plan hush hush because huge response from all offroaders would be unmanageable. Still we had 5 jeepers not informed directly. Appologies to folks.

Jeep which was being rescued was CL 340 manned by Suresh Stephen, Master offroader from Bangalore. Vehicle was stalling, so no risk.

Yes definitely it was one of the best off roading we had.

Ok guys took me a while to upload the pics, enjoy it as i enjoyed the trip.

Unfortunately my hard disk batteries were not charged and had to manage with the 2GB card, which was erased now and then to accommodate more interesting shots

Next time i will come with water/mud wading clothes and foot wear and some climbing ropes to plan some nice shots and will be walking in front to get the vantage points and not get run over by the 4x4's/

cheers

Super (I SAY!!) pics!! Looks like you all had a lot of fun! No significant damage this time, I hope...

I am waiting for my number to come up. Finally, my beast is running ok for the last three weeks. Rearing to go!!!

By the way... whose pick up truck is that? Looks nice! Does it come with 4X4?
