Babu, this trail is not even 10% of the avalakondu trail!! It is just for fun we found this to satisfy our OTR appetite.

Santosh,
I am glad you could recover the vehicle with just a pair of cables and D hooks. As far as i can see the pics, you should never throw a stone into the pit to judge the dept of the pit. YOU MUST WALK INTO IT FIRST!

A stick or a stone will not show the soft underfoot conditions. Only your foot will know. If you cannot barely stand there your jeep wouldn't.

That is the slowest form of getting stuck I have ever seen in a video! And the music adds to the wait ;-)

The terrain looks very "virgin". I would recommend that any organised OTR effort is not beyond 7 vehicles at a week-end.

Just does not make sense to go and ravage such land in huge numbers.

V_N, I learnt it the hard way. But what better excuse to kick myself to buy the most basic of Jeeping accessories.

Venkat - Read on, Dwarak and Giri joined us today and we had a blast, except for my buddies' Red CJ3B busted the crankcase drain bolt, and we spotted it immediately and stopped the Jeep right there and towed it out.

Pics here.
