Is there a point in carrying hi-lift jack, snatch block, tree saver, etc. to MGE? I'll only end up wasting time to explain every metal object to the wannabe-BSF guard at the pseudo-Wagah border while entering Goa. The MGE trail will anyway be very tame unless the rain gods pull some miracle.

Dear Sharath - there is no need to carry anything except a long and strong chain with old leaf spring shackles and their fasteners. You will be amazed at the number of stuck vehicles that you will be able to pull out. In any case you have the winch also but winch is slow, chain is faster. I will be in a conference in Pune on Sunday so I won't be able to make it. I am missing it though. All the best.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Behram, I do have the Ramsey 8000 winch, and a 7 meter chain. But with a tame MGE trail and so many service vehicles, I may have no opportunity to use it.

Then she gave me the Head office number 0832-2415941 or 0832-2415942. I spoke to a lady called Norin there. She said only 35 registrations will be accepted, they are almost done and the registrations will close tomorrow. Looks like everybody has a different version of when the registrations will close and how many entries are accepted.

Now I am not sure whether to take the Demand draft or not. I don't want to send the money and have it rejected.

Unless somebody can give me new information, I am out of Goa MGE.

However I am sure you will be able to make a last minute entry at Goa. Yet, as you have mentioned earlier, would it not be sad to land up at the end of the pack in a MGE.

Come on to the Munnar MGE then.

Mahindra anyway made some money of me for this. I gave my Jeep to Mahindra workshop yesterday for extensive pre-offroad preparation.

I had emailed Arif about 10-15 days back, didn't get any reply. Anyway, it doesn't matter. I've made other plans.
