They pack the sand to form temperory mud roads that they use to get the lorry to the spot they currently mine.

@ Danny, Machi no considering, other vehicles driving down excuse and all. you better get your vehicle down for TPC

Hi Jaggu,

The Contractors build Lime/Rock/Packed earth road (Grid) on the river Bed, to move the 6X4 Trucks.

The actual excavation is done by Bucket Hoes and Crawlers.

After the contract expires these road and broken down, to prevent others from exploiting the terrain.

Regards,

Arka

This is "sambar land". In any case it will be better to leave out the fat and pack in more carbohydrate rich food (Read : Dosa, Idli, Rice) it will be easier for your body and will give you more energy.

Do remember the temperature is in the high 30C and may touch even 40. So carbs + lots of water is the saner choice.

Thank you Discovery Channel.

You kidder you...

Done - Not sure if I'll be driving or walking the dunes and stuff but I'll try to give you the inside edge on the goings on.

Feedback on the heat I can give you right now =

I am meeting the guys at 6:00am Sunday morning with or without my CJ3B depending on how it goes at Ignite tomorrow. Will keep y'all posted. Too bad I don't have an ice-box like the one I have in Mumbai!!
