@Fanta, hope you are participating in TPC10. Why not form a team with Allan and gang. They get to see this part of the countryside as well.

Hope she is holding on to, too.

Well! Ciao soon.

Hi Serpente,

A 4WD Bolero is quite capable, how ever the 4wd mechanism and the Transfer Case must be in working order.

@ Tejas,

Nice initiative, contact Cargowings and other car transporters and see what they offer.

Regards,

Arka

HINT - try to strike a Rapport with any Mumbai's Hyundai showroom/warehouse managers. Get some info about the truckers since all their trucks return empty (officially) back to chennai. Let me know if you need any help from bangalore. I will check with some trucking companies...
