So now you guys make me sob for not coming over.

Vijay, Sorry couldn't take your call. Talked to sriraj late in the night. Got stuck with other stuff badly.

Regards,
Krishna.

Thanks. Yes, this is one of the reason I like Bangalore with so many weekend getaways. And ofcourse, the western ghats. Especially during these monsoons.

Ha, tell me that. There are more behind the scenes. One among it is, the kind of pain I have in my right hand for raising the hands for all those Kms.

But you know what, all that takes the back seat when I think of what I have seen in the OTR.

Saar, nothing comes even closer to what we see on there. I am sure you will accept this. But again, something is better than nothing, right?

Beleive me, this is not even the tip of an iceberg. The sunday OTR trail left everyone to wonder if we were in scotland. Yes. But we need swastikviji to post the pics.

Yes. These are places where we cant make it with normal vehicles. Dont need to regret for not having, just hop-in in to one of those. And, just make sure it has a top too.

mjothi, it's more than 24 hours since you posted your teaser shots. Where are the rest? Or are you waiting for Vijay to give you some snaps?

Yes sir. There are some more I took in my cam on sat, but those are in office . Will post them later.

And, vijay's camera was used to take pic by me and currently lying in Siddarth gypsy. So, not sure when its coming out.

I wonder why no one has posted any yet. Guys, are you all ok?

Wow, I didn't even know there was already a thread on it. I came home yesterday at 3:37PM and so far not developed a single shot. I don't have much photographs this time since I was driving most of the time and mostly behind the convoy. Most of the difficult areas, we couldn't get out to take photograph. Mjothi has most of the action photographs, I have no action photographs at all.

Vijai, heard it? Please post the pics. You should have most pics in the Memory card. The current one in Siddarth Gypsy is the last card with less number of pics. So, thats later.

Especially the 1GB card, has the video of the last hills we climbed/winched out. None of the vehicle was able to make this one, atleast in the first couple of tries

Please upload it.

Btw, lets see how many people were behind the lens,
1. mjothi
2. sreeraj
3. siddarth
4. vijai (Rajasekar)
5. Sharath

2 & 3 - Agreed, it has to be processed since it was shot in raw. How about others guys? Come on.

Ah, i am fine and still enjoying the body ache and insect bites and no leech bite this time .

By the end i could see a lot of demand for spare drivers, so guys next time we need to carry some spare drivers who can drive both gypsy and jeeps. .

Mjothi, good photographs. Now you know why we invite you to events. You will do justice to nature and offroaders.
