Buddy, got involved with some work Day 1 - Missed it completely.

Day 2 - Was good with the Storm doing circles in 2wd what other meagre 4wd machines did and YOU were missing. I was the TD of my storm which climbed inclines without the A pedal being used!!

Am sure, many have the pics of your Gurkha's jump and wheel spin.

Default Jeep Thrills 5A - Day 2

Could'nt make it to the first day event and was planning to somehow make it to the second day. A call from headers on Saturday evening and it was confirmed I and my brother would be making it to Adventure Zone with him in his STORM . Came back home at 2AM in the night from Vellore and getting up back at 6:00 was quite a tough obstacle, but then wanted to make it at anychance. Hopped in with headers and off we went storming towards AZ.We reached there by 8 and see people getting up one by one and by the time we completed breakfast it was almost 9.

Returning to the parking lot and the unveiling ceremony for the 1 Ton was taking place. Fix the battery bring in the petroltank(read jerry cans) and Ali dives into the engine bay trying to start the 1 Ton. Suddenly everyone is starring at the 1 Ton wanting to hear the mighty roar. But suddenly we hear another beast grumbling and shouting waking up everyone from the 1 Ton trance. It was none other than arka's petrol 3b, and boy did it shout ( nice ffe arka ). All this took up nearly half an hour and the beast is still standing as it is. So arka asks his bro(arkadeep) to lead the pack to the clay pits while few us stay back waiting to see the beast get up from its long slumber. After a couple of tries we plan to quit the waking up but suddenly she starts clearing her throat and gives a befitting thunder bringing back the smiles on everyone's faces.

WoW looks like you guys had super fun. I had everything prepared, even got my jeep cleaned up the previous night.
If not for my sprained ankle would have definitely made it. Feeling miserable looking at all the pictures.

Post Jeep Thrills 5A - Day 2 ... Contd

Off we go to the clay pits following the one ton. I hop in to Vikram's Gypsy along with Vijay. Enter the Clay Pits and find we had missed quite some action. Soon the 1 Ton came out from one of the pits in a rally style jump making everyone go crazy about the behemoth. And now everyone followed one by one in the pits, trying it at two different exit points.

I know there are a lot of people who are gurkha skeptics and haters in this forum which includes me, dont forget i was the first gurkha owner who actually criticized the vehicle and the poor service! That said the above video was not really representative of what happened on the excursion, that was the only time it got stuck and we where just entering!!

So for being fair for the sake fairness!!! Lets not be like news channels and show only the bad part to reinforce stereo types and sell sensationalism!

Man, the only thing I can hear above all the din of the many jeeps there is Arka's voice...KEEP YOUR HANDS INSIDE! Haha...I will just put on my headphones and raise the volume on my MP3 player to the highest when I am driving and Arka's next to me :P
