Without a jerry can, pipe and a pepsi-bottle-funnel, he would have never made it out.! So all you jeepers' - come into the OTR with 3/4 tank of diesel.
LOL!!! I am so happy that he got struck "Indirectly" Because of me.
But you know what, you never can be so "Prepared". As i told you in my previous post, it's very rare situation to Anticipate. I would say, chances of getting a hard hit on your diesel tank and breaking it is more "Predictable".

He did not forget santosh. We were getting frequent calls from Dwarak and others, to be there immediately for the rescue operation, hence we did not bothered about the fuel and also you know we have other jeepers(roshan, suresh, rajesh, etc) ready to provide the fuel in case if there is a need.

You really don't need a jerry can. a pipe and a pepsi bottle is sufficient. and he could have made it without all these if he had decided to go in one shot.

you can tell everyone to make sure they have filled upto atleast half tank instead asking everyone to carry 5lts each with a jerry can, pipe and a pepsi bottle. Needless to say everyone will be carrying atleast pepsi bottle . so just buy a few mtrs of pipe and keep it in your vehicle.

Today while returning home from office, buy a mask and wear it before entering your house. Say you had a checkup camp in office and they mentioned traces of H1NI.

so, do we have a list of participants and their rides compiled by now?
i'm kinda having a feeling there will be more spectators than participants. I belong to the former category.

^^ If I have enough volunteers to push the vehicle in case it gets stuck, I have space for 3 in my 2 tonner!

Else, the Willy it is, for me.
