Sudev bhai, the offroad bug has bitten you, it is time for you to buy a M&M or a gypsy..

Sitabani track was done the same day after river driving by most members and remaining were getting the Red Stryker repaired at Ramnagar.

Did Sitabani last monsoon and it was fun with rain and quite dense jungle. Not many pics since was the only car. Have posted some pictures in my GV long term review.

Buying a Willy SBW petrol is one option that has been on the table but not sure if enough driving would be done on it to keep it ready to run condition.

pdev, there was no point trying to start it there, first we got the Airfilter and other things cleaned and then started it. It did well.

No this wasn't part of the OTR route. This was a route for tractor crossing, which we were told by a local. Jeep went one side fine but while return it took water in air filter.
