I saw the Jeeps yesterday at 3:45 PM in Hunsur. I was driving from Kushalnagar to Mysore. I saw Swastikvijis jeep and a gypsy (maybe spidey) other jeeps i could not recognise.

I reached home at 8:30PM last night. It a rather nice track, enjoyed it a lot. I broke my front leaf spring on the way back, otherwise my Jeep handled the event pretty well.

I am leaving for another trip tomorrow, so my OTR report will come out next week.

Let me start By Saying thank You to everyone whom I went with to the OTR . I've always wanted to go to an OTR and I can't think of better company to go with! Starting off with Vijay (Star aqua) who invited for the trip ; Rajesh (rajeshnarayanan) who ofered me a ride in his Jeep ; Vijay (swastikviji), Siddarth (Donno the handle name) and Prabhu (Donno the handle name) ; Sreeraj (sreerajunnithan) who made sure I was comfortable with them. Thank you very much guys, and in Topaz’s(JMC guy) way - “” I LOVE YOU AAAL “” ha ha ha ha..


Was scheduled to reach the meeting point at 9 am in front of Rajarajeshwari hospital. Somehow everyone managed to reach by 10:30 IST(Indian Stretchable Time) and started off on a looonng journey (Yes, it takes really long time by jeep ) and reached Virajpet at around 5 pm.

Hello Guys !

I have been to this place with my office collegues. Did you go for a night mount ride ?? if not insist Mr.Sagar Ganapathy, He may charge for that and i am sure you will never regret it..

Oh god how did i miss this thread ! Else i would have mentioned this earlier before OTR

Let me know your thoughts after a night mount ride..If you had been.

He was in a company of folks who won't need insisting for night ride. They would take you night offroading for free even if you were kicking and screaming against it.

Headed straight to ChomaKunda for a small OTR. Could not reach the top as the 1st jeep got stuck royally and was finally pulled out by Samurai’s jeep.
Headed towards the camp where a nice camp fire was arranged.

Next day, 21 december was a grand day. The OTR was scheduled to take off at 8 but at usual was delayed . It was a pleasant morning, slowly the vehicles found their way to the camp and in no time the whole place was flooded with jeeps.
After a briefing the OTR finally started.
