Nor can we!!!

That's how much alien off-roading or worse, basic mathematics is back here. Let's hope it changes soon.

Guys: Ignore the opening press lines and look at the content of the event. And what is amazing is that our boys did the event with the minimal of fantasy equipment!
Vikram, I am sure we all read the whole article going beyond the incredible opening line. Since we all had read the first-hand report from actual participants earlier in the thread, it was strange to read the special effects added by the press reporter.

@Vikram: as mentioned in earlier posts, it is truly commendable what these 2 folks have achieved. I would love to be part of such an experience some day and one can only imagine the kind of experience these 2 have had in this event.
Was just pointing out someothing out of place in that report from the reporter.

As a co driver my experience was amazing. Learnt winching techniques, knots, safety aspects and navigation. ....

The Taprobana challenge was a great experience. The event was excellent, people were very friendly and I am sure it would remain as an experience of a life time for me and one of the best OTRs in my life. Thanks Sean, Darshan, Rushi, Prashan and others. On this side of the Adams bridge I thank Sanjay (who convinced me to make the trip), Kaushik, Arka (ex670c) who has been extremely supportive and gave us valuable tips before the event), Headers, Petrolhead, nitrous, fieryenzyme, hotrod and others who were very supportive.

Last but not the least we thank Jeep thrills and its members. It was here we learnt off roading and our performance in the Taprobana International challenge bears testimony to the lessons learnt on our various OTRs.
.......

Regards
Raghav .
