More photos follows. Two jeeps alone took almost 6 hrs to do the recce for first and second day trails.

You will see MPS wading through the water to see depth at different places. This stretch is open for water crossing during the OTR on 18th and 19th sept. For who do not wish to wet their bottom, we have recced alternative route. Probably more trickier than water crossing itself.

Going by the last 3-4 pics looks like its all going to be about articulation.

This has always been a SWB terrain.

By the way I was going to Bangalore Airport yesterday and has fond memories of going to Avalkonda the last time.

Also was feeling very bad of myself that I will not be able to attend the event this time.

Anyway there is always a next time.

Hmmm

Hi guys,

Sorry, but everyone's busy this weekend and won't be able to come. I'm too bored to come alone. Maybe next time.

Have a good one!
