Oh, didnt know it was a hood cam, like a helmet cam the bikers wear. Great job Sunil, can you post a pic of the setup from the outside, want to know how it is done.

Santosh,

I too love to see the vid from out side, but most stream crossing and stuff, My Wife had to cross the obstetrical before me to take the video & that was not possible or at least convenient, also my kid was in the Jeep & she had to hold him too, so no other person like a navigator to jump out run around & capture the same. The video cam is my Bro's & first time I was using, so didn't know hot to keep it alive for long etc, some videos I have taken with the lens cover not opened essentially audio only .

Trying to get messages out in a not to subtle way!

(The other way would be the old "Mjothi's approach" )

It looks like he got it screwed using some kind of holder. In one of the video's you will find the, after a ride, the camera goes round and round and round and then finally points down! Maybe he tied down a tripods or something on the guards. But whatever done, I find the video without any vibration. That was quite a surprise!

I have a mono-pod that I had strapped with tags to the crash guard. My Bro after seeing the video says he has a remote too !!!, it would have been so much more eazy to turn on & off, rather than stop at awkward locations, turn off & later on again etc.. also the cam goes to standby in like 2 mins if no activity & stops recording, need to see how to keep it on for longer.

The TDI really makes a lot of noise, turn it off & The place is so bloody quite & peaceful suddenly.

After the OTR We went to Kukke Subramanaya Via Bisal Ghat road, 40 Kms & LOVELY path way, for some 15 odd kms was in 2nd gear only !!!, the next day Monday cameback to Somwarpet on the same road & then to Bangalore, Me & My Kid are still recovering from body ache & cold from the trip.

Cheers
Sunil

Guys,

Just washed My Drive this weekend, realized that one of the D shaped connectors on the Tow rope is Missing !!!, it had one at each end, now only one is with the rope!! I had left the rope at one of the obstetrical (the one where a SWB rolled over)

If anybody remembers seeing it please let me know, it is a Very High Gauge D shake with green paint on the removable pinon, at the end of RED synthetic tow rope.

Thanks
Sunil

Good and well organised OTR. Really appreciate the back up service. You guys did a great job

Had few good challenging stretch, but we missed out the last stage due to time constrain.
