First things first: Thank you Jeep Captain for making the event so memorable. I am sure at least half of the crowd there turned up for you. The bonfire at your place was best of all.

Thanks Shibu for that!

@Milecruncher, your storm would have done most of it provided you exercised control on your heavy right foot.

My Dear Saar,

I have a very light foot. As a matter of fact, I only caress the throttle these days. BTW are you in base in the first week of October? Might be headed your way and might take up your earlier offer

Cheers

Agreed! But only if its a pure 4X4 event. I have a feeling it will be 4x2 as well here in Hyderabad and the venue will be Narsapur Forests like last time

Nice Pics. This is truly looks like a Great Escape.

Looks like MGEs are now moving into strictly 4x4 mode? I hope this is the case.

Is the upcoming Ooty one a strict 4x4 only event?

Spike, Even though you missed it Thanks for introducing your college mate and buddy and tbhpian buddy dhanush and his friends to me. We all had a nice time in my farm house the previous day of MGE. It was a small team-bhp and Bangalore Bolero Club meet.
