Quite simple actually:

You be a MAN and tell her that you are going off roading with your friends like a real ME do and that she should have hot breakfast ready for you the next morning when you arrive.

But since that would mean that you spend the next week sleeping in the back of your Mitsubishi...

You tell her that

1> you are going for a late night drive with friends two of whom are doctors. (that for some weird reason conjures up respectability)

2> Since you will be late you dont want to disturb her and so are taking the house keys, she should have dinner and go to sleep early

3> You show up sheepishly the next morning blaming the crazy doctors for going on all night and with a smile (real/fake) present her the packet of Maganlal chikki you remembered to buy from the Food Court of the Expressway. If you get chocolate fudge then slightly more brownie points!

Yeah,better keep it to Maganlal Chikki,nothing expensive,because no matter what you get it will be tossed out of the window instantly,without even a glance on it.


The best option is to cook up some office work if employed or meet an imaginary client(keep it male and oh yes a doctor would be better) if self employed. Only don't forget to borrow some friends clothes,otherwise getting your shirt or pants muddy after an OTR would need another story.

Tejus, thats a good idea. This way we all can move around in a structured formation with mix blend of experienced, equipped and freshers.

Hi,

Please choose your option for stickers. I'm not a photoshop expert. So this is the best i could do in the given time.

Either option 1(4WD) or option 2(with the tyre).

Or someone else plz design them.

I liked both but I recomend don't put alibaug let it be without it. Add team bhp if you want, if its wihtout the destination we can keep it on the car even after the otr.
P.S. Tejas I want 03 plz plz.

James ask amit to get the rope I am planning something what we did at rajmachi.
I will call u I am going to be in pune on sat.
