Great pictures and captions Jaggu.

Srikanth - this was my first OTR with the Yokohama Geolandar A/T tyres - all the previous OTRs were with Bridgestone Dueler H/T tyres.

Hats off to you Hrishi. You drove amazing, cool and calm and perfect articulation of gears and pedals!

Do give the truck a nice wash and some tightening job

Thanks for the kind words, folks. This was my 6th OTR with the truck - only the tyres were different this time.

With the OTR bug biting you looks like you would have to forego you weekend trips to Chennai which is what I was mentioning in my earlier post. With better shoes am sure you would become more serious, waiting to see the crawling truck to match the spidey

The Safari is literally making its own road here - This path was a narrow one lane before the Safari made it into a Highway!!
