This one was just terrific. I loved every bit of it, except the bloody boulders he he. First proper outing for DwArF and he just loved it, performed exceptionally well without any hitches the whole 2 days. Just to brag, didn't even need a radiator top up

Sunil,
Can you check this and re-upload if required ?
Sunil,

I rather suggest that you start a OTR Report thread with a bunch of your & your bros best photographs.

Jaggu, The DrArf was certainly one of the main attractions. It was fun trying to keep up with him during that one stretch.

Sunil - Super snaps. Just a suggestion, we need to take the pics in such a way to show the true incline.

For example look that the incline the people are standing at and the horizon, it shows truly how steep that hill was.

Also after you post the videos, do email that one video as promised .

Also Sunil time to buy a 3 Tonnage tow rope from Stellas.

Second special stage, this is a rocky stream, followed by a tricky left hander and then a final climb. Short wheel base country and hence gypsies had some nice time.
