After Allan practically 'made' a path in the soft slushy mud (where Ibrahim wedged himself in for quite a while), the other vehicles too decided to give it a go. Here's Gogi's jeep.

After baking in the heat for a few hours, some of us decided to go forward and find the lake - the others, decided to find lunch.
The water sure looked cool and inviting!

Wow! amazing action series from western offroaders. As HVK said you folks are (offroad) corrupted lot. Didn't see GTO there in his classic.

Crazy good stuff. Ibrahim as usual in his indomitable spirit tries to 'make his own road', and usually succeeds.

@ Tejas > What tires are you running on your Classic and how did they perform in the slush ?

Im quite tempted to INVEST in an offroad specific machine and am more inclined towards a Cheapsy(cheap gypsy)... and then push its limits on the modifications. Guys, anyone selling a Cheapsy, do let me know... and should i go for the old one or the King ? SOry for going slight OT.

Jay go for an MPFi..
If I hear of one on sale, I'll let you know.. but this'll cost around 3L..
If that's too much, then go for a carb 1.3 (King).. But please stay away from the 1litre gypsies..
Also note that carb gypsies will be low low low on milage.

Coming back to the OTR, "Raft? Why did you need a raft when you have a boat?"
- Nice one!! Lol...

Dear all - first I would like to compliment our gracious host Dr.Mohan along with the entire Alibag team for inviting us to this wonderful OTR. I enjoyed every bit of the day's event as everybody did. Thank you Dr.Mohan and team. The terrain was carefully chosen and it was a healthy mix, having varying degrees of difficulty which made the event exciting.

I request people who drove the Thar on the track / people who saw it go around / people who photographed it post their comments in any way they think suitable.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar
