I would love to spend some time taking pictures this time.
Avalakonda was awesome during the JT 5 Anniversary.
The same trail now should be super fun!
So, Dwarak Sir, would it be possible to reach early and park my Gypsy at MPS' place (in the worst case that is, if i do not get to ride shotgun with others )?
Cheers and look forward to meeting everybody.

Deepak,

I hope no problem with gypsy. why is it you want to be photographer only. Start recognizing the brute power you have and indulge in, unless you are worried about damages.

Trail is oneway- entry from one end and exit other end. Hence, it is adviseable to come along.

Tejas, You are welcome. You will get to drive one or the other vehicle. Presently, the swing is towards 18/19th more. Let's hope you can make it with mumbai gang.

I think we have too many photographers and too little offroaders. Guys, please stick to offroading. Photography leave it to great guns here - Rudrasen, Mjothi, Jaggu( snatch his jeep first).

Are we confirmed for 18-19th? Please let us know soon so that we can do bookings or plan our drive itinerary. Also, what are the costs and how and whom do we pay to?

And this time, someone please pick me from the airport. Last time you'll made me walk for 20 minutes on the highway from the airport at 5am and said "don't get mugged"!!!!!!

Tejas,

18th and 19th is confirmed. Sure will arrange for pickup from airport if you are flying. You don't have fear of getting mugged in Bangalore at least.
