Had an awesome time at the EXAMM. The terrain, the weather, the people... it was a superb combination.
Many thanks to tejas,devang and allen.



I think coming down that slope in 2LOW made it too fast for most people to be able to control the slipping, sliding, bouncing and thats why many of them ended up veering away to the right instead of staying in line.

also considering, the jeep being heavier than a gypsy, would gather more momentum as it came down the slope.

From the video it sure looks a lil scary the way jeep went hurtling down as if it were completely out of control. but am sure the occupants had fun..in a scary way.

I saw very few clear this at one go, besides the three Hurricane powered CJ's and the Qualis engined FJ from Hyderabad. In fact the FJ made it look so easy, as if there was no obstacle at all.

more........ soon.....[/quote]

Gogiji my junior colleague Ninad who's offroading experience is hardly a month old went through this difficult obstacle without any hitch ,as if he was crossing
a speed breaker

BTW I would make a suggestion : Do not attempt to do the" Sawarsai" now as there have been local incidents which may put you in a precarious position. Some vehicles did some damages which the locals are not taking lightly.

@Tejas, Had an awesome trail on Examm. The drive to the trail and the flag point was just superb.

Many thanks to your team Allen, Devang and others for all the support and coordination for the event to be a grand success.

I personally enjoyed all the challenges and definitely the once which I experimented by myself. (Apologies, if it made any inconvenience to the convoy)

Looking forward for the next event, Good luck.

Regards
Robinson

Ok, just back to the daily office grind after 3 days in off-road paradise and 4 days driving to/from paradise.

What beautiful terrains you all have there. Just toooo good. I had REAL fun all the days and enjoyed every bit of it. Met many new people & old friends.

Thanks to ALL the organizers, people silently helping in the background and everyone else..

Arre, even my drive in your Monstar & Allan's Gypsy & the THAR is pending. I badly wanted to drive these but.... All the time it was ok, next turn/obstacle we will drive it or ask you to drive my vehicle but it just did not happen... I think the best would have been to just drive it straight away. somewhere in the back of the mind that there are 3 days of off-roading made us a little lazy thinking that there is time.

Khan Bhai,

Your Spidey is awesome, i saw the way it so very easily went through the river and onto to the other side. i was waiting down the hill just to catch that.

You have a superb vehicle. and next time, me too wants a drive in the Spidey.

and did you encounter any issues on Sunday while heading back down?


Cheers,
Raj
