All the best Guys,

Have a safe and wonderful OTR

The NCR Jeepers are heading to Corbett for the 25th Week end. Hope it rains there. It just rained in Delhi and NCR.

Cheers

Default Can't make it!!

Unfortunately I can't go on OTRs for a couple of weekends. Have family functions the next 2 Sundays :-(

I hope to go to the Mahindra Great Escape in Coorg on Aug. 8th - I have not seen any threads on this yet.

Is this confirmed and have other bangy boyz started planning? (I know some hard core guys were not so enthu about it due to last year's experience)

I am feeling so left out.

The Nilgiris has some of the best terrains to off road. You"ll should consider an OTR here sometime.
There are a couple of others from my region who are interested too.

There are quite a lot of trails, estate roads, slush pits and some of the infamous municipality roads.
Next time, if any of you guys come this side send me a PM and I can show you some of the probable trails.

Hi Sudhir, It was great to have a TLC navigating the off-road terrain along with Gypsy/Jeeps. It's a very very capable machine you have there and you are very good at taking it to places where it belongs.

As you said, it was a great Sunday outing with a small group of friends. No better was to spend a beautiful Sunday morning.

Look forward to more of the TLC, you & your friends joining us in OTR's.

PS: The only picture I took was this one from my mobile . I am sure the zillions of pictures taken by other folks will be shared here.

Come on guys!

Expected a flood of photos here! The only two guys who made a post were the ones without a camera. So, where are the ones with the camera!

Please guys! :(

( PS to the organizers: Next time, please kidnap MJothi for such events! )
