Yaar galti huey ho to maaf kar do!!

From Khalapur exit it is 22 km to the entry point.
Therafter it is another 6 km winding road up the mountains.
Once at the top ,you decide when to stop driving.

Example:
If we could all possibly assemble by 9:00 am, we could reach the OTR spot by 10:00 am.
We could drive along,have lunch,cold drinks etc till maybe 4:00pm.
Descend and hit the highway by 5:00pm
Believe me the best part would be the sunset(at around 6:00 pm,in that case you hit the highway at 7:00 pm).

Anyone for a night OTR some other time?
We can make camping arrangements too,complete with night fire,dinner ..
The weather is hilarious.

Count me in.

I have fixed up all the possible issues with my Mini Pajero and want to test the beast.

Would be doing some testing this week to avoid any last minute issues.

David would also be coming along with me.

Cheers

Good idea. Am open to it. If we are not doing the overnight thingy, i suggest let's meet up early. No sense in meeting at 9am (people are always late). Let's meet by 7:30am at Khalapur rather and complete the track before noon.

Don't have one as yet. Let me know where i can buy one from here and i shall get it.

Tejas,

it doesnt make sense if its not overnight. coming back home and leaving in morning doesnt make sense.

second if you are saying lets go early in the morning do you think people will be able to wakeup on sunday morning after a wild saturday night??

regarding the cable, we got it custom made but you can try buying it from sewri (shivdi) whatever. it has a dockyard near by so they sell stuff like this if you cant get it anywhere then tell me i will try to source it for you.

Imran will be in a gypsy.

few of my friends may come. (non members)

I meant either do the overnight OTR, stay back and do an early morning one as well. OR if not, then make an early morning one.

Hmmm... Good point; i forgot about saturday night. Need to rethink and make a few calls myself now...

OK. Will try to look for one. How long is your tow cable? What capacity / how many tons? Is it nylon or steel? what kind of hooks? How much did you pay?

@Tejus: Thanks for adding my name to the list.

You may also add Davids name to the passenger list. His MM550 is getting ready (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-ve...50-bombay.html (ex army MM550 in Bombay)) so he would ride with me.

There are lot of shops near Masjid Bunder Station where you get good ropes used on ships, may be it will help.

I am ready for Sunday early morning.

We can meet at the Mc' Donalds Kalamboli right where the Express Highway starts at 7:00AM. As per the Google Map there is a Petrol Pump there so we can get the tanks filled and head for Khalapur.

Saturday night and then morning sounds very good.I will have to look up with the provisions and other arrangements. Give me tomorrow.
Tejas do you have camping gear with you,bacause I heard you do "jungles".
I have a "Northface" tent for 4 and other sundries.
So if you and Dev are pukka about it I can do the necessary.
Who else would like to join this "extended version"?
