Default Regarding OTR

Hi Guys,was back at the OTR site today for a review.
My findings:
1- The place is very harsh and easily tiring .
2- Its windy and the sun does bite .
3- The area is too large ,roughly 21 square miles and covering it in a go would be impossible.
4- Not much inhabitation so, no food joints, cafe's or for that matter a "loo' for a long time to come.
5- Its extremely dusty,hence those with open jeeps may look like they have come out from the sets of "mummy"(the movie).
6-Phones work well due to the good network.

Hence in my opinion it would be advisable to come with a vehicle in good condition,have a sunscreen lotion,cap and good quality shoes so as not to slip.
Water is highly essential and at least 3 litres per person.

It would be so nice if those interested could confirm with the number of persons so that food can be arranged.

Posting a few more photos.
Attached Images

Default Otr

@ Tejas: good question..this fact is taken care of.
@ Dev: Am I glad to hear from you..its been a long time.
@ sab4X4 ; This place is 22 km from Khopoli,come towards Pen by the Khopoli-Pen Road, ask for "Dagadkhan" near Sawarsai. My number is 9823162649 should you have any problem. I will look up in my log and post you the GPS coordinates.

Rahul from Delhi is flying all the way to attend this Preliminary OTR.

Guys like Dev and Allan can have a look at the place & they can decide a future 4WD track.

Mohan,

You have discovered great terrain for OTRs. Definitely this spot rocks and will be sufficient for 6 months of OTRs of different challenges.

Hi,forget about the post of "water boy",all posts are vacant from top to bottom.So its just a"walk-in" or perhaps a"drive-in" .

Ok Guys, now for some "Micro-Planning"..So Please fill in the "blanks"

#I shall await outside the Khalapur exit (1st Toll-naka from Mumbai,2nd from Pune side at __________am(please not pm) to go to the site.

#Pune guys coming from road other than Exp.Hwy can wait near the 1st Khopoli-Pen Road Toll-naka. Time latest by _________am.

#Once at this place we should finish and touch the highway by ________pm.

#We will be expecting ____ number of vehicles.

# We shall have a total of _____ persons.

# We have ___number of pure vegetarians in our wild pack.

Answers which could help me in arrangements.
This will help me in further planning.

BTW..Sen dada we would love to have you and your Safari in action again,are you coming?

Good microplanning. I hearby christen you official planner of all future OTRs... Sir Mohan!

Anyways, what time are we planning to reach the OTR site? How many clicks is it away from the Khalapur exit?

If we know these two details, then we can coordinate individual meeting times in our respective cities.
