For any details,please contact Mahindra & Mahindra or TVS & Sons who are the sole distributors for Mahindra in Kerala. If I get any more information I will post it here.

I am also taking this oppurtunity to welcome our tbhp members, M&M team Vinod, Behram Sir and Pratheesh and your service team and TVS & Sons and their team to my home town Waynad!

See you all there.

Shibu, I will not be able to make it to your abode, or I would carry back to Hyderabad...that lovely black pepper, the best in the world which is grown here. Your stock is still lasting, thanks again. Regards,

Hi Shibu,

Thank you for the invitation, I will not be able to make it due to other commitments during the weekend. Despite being from Kerala, Wayanad is one place I've never been to. Now with you around in those Jeeps I don't think this jinx will last longer. BTW, I came to know that you have booked all the entries so that only your Jeeps participate

Hope this turns out to be a memorable event for you!

Spike

PS- Please tell me about your plans soon, so that I can book my tickets accordingly. I will be there, if it doesn't coincide with my Sabarimala plans, CONFIRMED. Got the drift?

I think I am going to miss this Drive which I dreamed at the time of my jeep rebuild (I put my jeep for sale). But I will be there to see all you proud owners of unique Jeeps.

Friends Can you Please give me a seat on Your Jeep if I am coming without my Jeep ?

Spikey, Whats this bro? It seems you are trying to avoid me. You better make it to Waynad soon. Else you will be banned from Jeeps own country. .
Jokes apart, sorry to hear that you are not coming. I was hoping to see you there. Anyways myself and Jeeps are there in Waynad. Let me know when you can come down and we will arrange an OTR for you

Rajith,

I know the Major's ground clearence is poor and I think using a high profile tyre will solve the issue so I already got a set of army rim and will use a suitable tyre.

Wayanad MGE will be great drive with Rain and fog and Vythiri is a place with unexpected Climate change.Another important thing is the sticky mud at wayanad it will stick to the tyre and loose traction so NDMS is the best.

Dear Ranjit,
How big is your fuel tank? 40 or 60 litres?

If 60 litres please change it to smaller 40 litres tank. It will not hit. Plus recamber of springs will help you elevate the vehicle. It will not touch. In extreme case please relocate fuel tank under co-driver seat like good old jeep. No problem of hitting any where what so ever.

@Shibu- Thanks for initiating this thread. Looking forward to see you in full force
@Sreejesh- DOnt worry about not having a 4wd vehicle. You can join in my vehicle.
@foby- Please come, i will try to accomodate you in any one of our vehicle. But you may have to be a co passenger. May not be able to drive. Come just to have fun!!
