Friends. I had a great time at Lonavla otr, I am just missing my machine.

But the next otr I am sure it will be ready, I meanwhile have been learning a lot of lessons from you all.

@Kunal- I was his co-driver when he performed this dare devil stunt. I really thought we going down and wanted to hold the vehicle with my hand as i could almost touch the rock beside me but my presence of mind held me of doing so-and suddenly we were up on our wheels.

Abhimanyu's machine is a monster and I could feel the power, we were up for just a few seconds and (the camera captured this shot).

Summed up in one sentence.

Awesome.... fun, vehicles, photography, weather, terrain and camaraderie

Shibu, nice work with the camera.

Sudarshan, thanks for the reassurance.

Seeing the SWB
3B's in action, makes one respect them more and as for me, to speed up with my 3B and start the trials.
Regards,

What a great time we had. I think when like minded friends go for an OTR, it helps as they are in Sync with each other and camaraderie is at an all time high.

It was a great trail, could be more fun had it rained. Unfortunately the rain Gods played truant. No worries. Had it rained, most of the trail would have been very challenging, not that it was not so already but the degree of difficulty would have been raised to another level.

Like the 1st obstacle of the EXAMM Otr. At that time, with no rain and a dryer track it was a cakewalk for my CJ and the2 other CJs. At this time I tried around three times or so but was not able to get a firm grip. Also no Gypsy except Khan's Spidey (is it a Gypsy first of all?) could make it, this time all the Gypsyies cleared it without a problem. Even a certain 1.0 litre powered Gypsy, worth 3.5 lakh

Funny how the terrain gets unaccessable or vice versa.

As can be seen in the pics I had Kunal and Tejas spotting for me but after three tries i decided to back off and let the others try. The track was also getting worse with each try of mine.

I was loosing traction at the end part where i was supposed to turn left on the rock but because of the NDMS and a very narrow track, the Jeep kept getting pushed into a spot where the rock obstructed it from going any further.

My tyres were letting me down. Great as they are the NDMS lack the grip and the width to get over certain obstacles.

Ok Whos the wise guy who just shouted "Driver Error"??!!

So I decided to get the CJ out of the way. I shifted to reverse and cut a sharp left at this corner, taking the CJ up the hill (tracks visible behind in the pic) all in Reverse. Amazingly it just went up without a whine.

Highlights of the trail;

The approach to and fro through a declined waterless water way/gutter which became an incline the other way around

I presume on days of immense rain a lot of water flows through here from high points. Rocky to the core with slush and mud thrown in all around. Surrounded by complete dense vegetation, a challenge to climb up as well as down. Just loved it.


to be continued.....

Mods Kindly Delete the earlier post without pics. Thanks

V-16,
Your 3B is a beauty, been admiring it since long when it was on the forum after the restoration, AKC and this event. A possession to be very proud of indeed.

Dear Extreme Offroaders,
Superb stuff. Thanks for the detailed report Gogi and thanks everyone for sharing those pictures.
What's wrong with this Jeep? http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/attach...z_dsc_0336.jpg
Did something break on the front-axle? Looks very bad.
Cheers,
Deepak

Hi Deepak,
The steering rod had broken. Got fixed by the end of the day. The bad part was that the rod punctured the radiator as well! Whatever said and done, that's one fabulous jeep... a kaiser with a qualis turbo engine!

Default the aftermath

Sunday was a great day of learning ,as Kishorji ( Tigerranch ) has rightly said .

The winch was repaired /overhauled /greased last year & was not used much . Also the bracket was not tested outdoors. Finally the whole thing got tested enough. its working good,not getting heated too. also the alternator seems adiquate ( no hurry to upgrade) but I wiil need an battery Isolater ( duel battery setup) soon.

More importantly as Tejas has pointed out need a good new tree strap for winching ( How Dumb of me doing without it )

Monday 8.00 am . I emptyed the car took her for a pressure wash , the service station owner is a friendly guy .Now didnt have servents till almost 10 am . Now he puts himself to service ( washing ) . Half an hour later hands over the washing gun to me . One hour later & half his tank empty I emarge beneath the ramp. The whole Que of people qurious about the new washing guy ( long live DIY ) . the whole thing costs me 350. I was happy . No rains at OTR ? who cares ! I was soaking wet .

Next : the car was empty , I took her straight to weigh bridge yes.Now officially my Landy is 1920 Kg.s ( 30 Lt. diesel No equipment or recovery gear but only with the Winch )

Today loaded the Landy with all tools ,spares box ,+ one 60" high lift + two wire ropes ( 18 ft long, .5" thick ) + two heavy snatch blocks+chains+shackles+ two jacks ( Lcv type )+Digging equipment + axe+ tommy bar cum pahar + 5 Lt water can + other misc Items like nutbolts ,radiator hoses ,belte etc & etc . Again took her to weighbridge .

Now with all the equipment I took to OTR the Landy weighs 2110 Kg. NET .(Without me or passengers)

Some more to come

Yours Sudarshan
