I should have bought early so every OTR could have captured. Camera is good for shooting Sir.
Sir when are you buying Canon 7D.

Even I did not believe SLR can take such good videos but results are good, only problem it takes lot of memory.

I guess our reporter are busy with there work so I am posting a SS video of Scorpio.

So, now we had no way out. Human power wont be enough to get this monster out of this hurdle. Hi-Lift jack? not sure.

So, we decided to use snatchblock on the trees & bushes found in the left side of the vehicle.

But there was no easy access to the tree for connecting the Snatch-block. Vijay helped Vijay to get on the jacket. He prepared him as if he was going on some space expedition. The jacket, gloves, cap... wht not.

Quiz: Whose the team member behind this costume?

Sorry, no prize for guessing right.

We failed the first try. We cant even shake the Scorpio with the anchor on the trees we found. It was either the Jeep that was pulling the Scorpio or the tree that was moving out of thier position. Finally, we gave up this tree and found another one. Then it was successfully winched out.

Can you notice the tears from the tree after we broke the bandan of it with the Scorpio. They both were in love for the past couple of 10s of min, and we played the villain role to separate them.

But still Scorpio found time to gift the tree with the rear quater glass!


The next hurdle was on a full of free space. Scorpio did not need to worry about the trees or bushes for the scratches. but this was a different one. One wrong move, and you will be ending up in the wrong side. This time it was Tanzim on the wheels. He did an excellent job of controlling that heavy monster.

Several of us did have a doubt if it was achievable. Hats of Tanzim.

As we were discussing, if someone visit here, they will not beleive that a vehicle passed this way. You need to see to beleive it.

probably next time, in other direction. hehehe.

Next was like a big pot hole. Thats all. With all the hurdles the machine crossed, this was just a peanut.

Ok, here comes the HOT topic. I will leave it to Shakir & Dwarak's comments on this rescue. Lol.

Moral of the story is - Never follow a Gypsy. if you do follow, then dont assume the easy/toughness of the trail by Gypsy's movement.

For once, at last, i've got something to show when it comes to the Jeep/Gypsy duel with my colleague at office
My bad, i missed this OTR.
I would love to hear more about this from Shakir & Vijay.
Cheers,
Deepak
