My vote for this would be the scorpio -
1) he did the entire OTR in 4H!!
2) he has done towing duties too

His clutch may have failed at the end, but it does not take away from its offroading abilities

I expect some mad rush of vehicles to this OTR already

Hey Guys,

We have a Ham radio VHF repeater put up on top of the Yelagiri hills which is in need of maintenance. What about combining both these into one trip (recce + maintenance visit)?

It is installed at one of the highest peaks in Yelagiri hills along with TN police repeater. The site is 2 km from the nearest road and one has to trek through the forest to reach it. Will check with the ham who was instrumental in installation and post here.

Nice terrain guys, - And please use a mat on the tow cables and not stand so closely to the cable. The risk of a fatality is high expecially if the cable snaps be it nylon or otherwise!


OK so when is the next joint OTR happening? OR should we guys come to Hosur?

I was guessing so, the damn thing looks like it can climb a 90deg uphill with that ground clearance and trye size.

Being in bangalore Id like to see that scorpio in as is condition, looks killer!
