Thanks for uploading the pics Tejas and Soumya. Soumya you have the a real gift for story telling. Sadly in all of this the official photographer, cum tale teller, cum occasional offroader, had a bad back so couldn't come in his CJ but inspite of being on bed rest for a couple of days, chose to participate outing with us. Thank you sirji. What would be interesting to know is what cock and bull cover story you gave the wife about your mud slung clothes on your return

Guru came without his much needed coffin.

I had the opportunity of capturing a few moments in my camera and thereon, getting involved in a Mud bath, refrained from touching the camera. Also partly because the terrain was breath taking. All thanks to Allan for taking us there. There were inclines and declines and twisty turny ways up, down and sideways and a lot of slush and water crossings, some river and stream crossings especially the last leg where it reminded me of the AKC crossing, only way way shallower than AKC. All in all a great time.

Paras you have become a good offroader. I can see the improvement by leaps and bounds in your technique from the EXAMM event at Lonavala. Also your Gypsy is in greater shape. Great!!


Breathtaking greenery all around. Almost like being in an English Mew.BTW thats Soumya atop the plain in white. Tejas cannot be missed in his fishing hat, while Paras clears the sludgy decline incline with no problem.

Tejas spots for Devang while Soumya goes trigger happy, the result of which you have seen in his post above.

As the climb was getting more difficult with the tries, it was decided to shed some excess baggage and load from the rear.......One time more and smoothly up with no fuss.....

I remember someone asked him..
"Gaadi Palti ho gaya kya?"
Paras:"Nahi"
Rhetorical guy: "Toh yeh kaise manage kiya?"


All in all a fun filled afternoon.

You know why there were there Guru, they are a part of the initiation programme to EXAMM. besides that, the other two were Gypsies equipped with a door and window which could be rolled up or down to avoid/invite the flies. Orangie was too open and to add to that they had a feast waiting in my CJ....you!!

You were great company and a thanks for the spotting mate!!

Some people wonder where you are coming from

So you make your own way

That was a super fun OTR.
Imran and Gogi- ty , I am getting better because i am learning so much from everyone.
I ve almost gotten rid of my descent fears.
Somuya - You do poetry? excellent captions , they keep getting better and better every OTR. how s your neck? hope its in perfect bobbing condition by the next OTR

Thomson & thomson You were not alone,
Owing to that slush where i left the window open ,WINDOW OPEN !. The devil sent flies loved my car , wherever i stopped there were atleast 15 in the car. The EXXAM id when ferociously used worked wonders, I think i killed a few

We ve got to do this trail more often , the best part is its so close by. Allan your a lucky fellow to have this in your backyard.

Allan's whiffy pits

Seriously the most fun I've had at an OTR. Was it the group, the trail, the flies, the weather or just the slow Sunday morning? I don't know...but it just clicked. Of course I loved the fact that at the end of all fun and games, I got to drive home in my Ford Ikon rather than bouncing around in a Gypsy.

Might make a habit of this!

Good Fun you guys had. The trail looks swell. Add to it the usual peppy narration by Soumya with the pics.

i was returning back to mumbai on sunday morning and was at a traffic signal near IIT when my pal asks me ' woh kya jeep hai, udhar dekh yellow main', guess what, it was monstar on its way to the OTR. Its a thrill to see these kind of vehicles and more so when you identify them


Cheers
