Starter, you can't learn sitting next to somebody. You have to do it yourself before you can believe it. When I first attended a offroad training event exactly two years back, Arka just gave his Jeep and asked me to drive it whole day, in city, highway and offroad. And that was the first time I ever drove a Jeep. You are at least familiar with your Gypsy.

Don't worry about being newbie, we all started that way. In fact, some of us (like me) are barely above newbie stage. Just because we yap a lot online doesn't make us experts.

I wouldn't suggest a difficult trail for a newbie.

Fantastic saying Samurai, Now starter hop on to the rally. Move your gypsy into the slush and take a dip into the slush(that is the main reason you had bought this right???)

They do lot of things with their TOYS. I bet you cannot see that.
If you see then you will be tempted to use your CIVIC for the same. Do one thing go to that OTR and get us a some fantastic snaps. what do you say. In this bargain you will see what it is and we will also see what it is

When Samurai is there, I'll not even take out my camera. I will only be learning from him.

Learn what from me? BTW, your compositions are very good.

If the trail keeps me busy driving, I'll not be able to pull out the camera at all. Only if lot of vehicles get stuck, I'll get ample clicking opportunities.

Anyway, it is time to get the Jeep ready for the event. We Jeepers can hardly get up and go, the prep time is very necessary.

our vehicle is super well equiped, all it lacks now is the drivers experience.
id humbly request you, to get in touch with vinod. get some tips, drive along with him
and then take your beauty out alone
believe me youll appreciate her more.
too much power in the wrong hands is not a good thing
then again we have build this vehicle to conquer all terrrain
so stop using her to get woman in chennai , and rather spend that time gaining vital experince off the road,
im also trying my level best to come to coorg,
just adjusting christmas dates

regards

Allan
Hey woman in chennai no way. haha. And yes will take your advise seriously and hope to learn a lot this weekend.
