Dear Ranjith,
This is a very neat looking Major...please preserve it. You will command lakhs for it in few years:-))

Wishing you guys all the best for MGE OOty today. I Couldnt make it for this event either for recee or for the main event :-( Blame it on THAR.

Thanks for bringing the Mge to town. There were some issues regarding finalizing of the trails and I must mention the folks at Mahindra and Vinay Thomas really went through a lot to get the necessary permission.
2wd Scorps and Bolero's had a fun time.

Rajith, post the pictures of Friday.

I do not have many pictures to post. Only a few clicked on my phone.

Good to know that you guys had some nice time at Ooty.
Rajith, the Major looks lovely with its new shoes. The Gypsy discs are a direct fit?

Beejay i have added more picture of uer recomended trails done on friday.

I had a severe insect bite near my eyes, it was catching like a bullet and paining like hell !! tried hard to remove it and rubbed areas reliously with hairs in hand (As adviced by Beejays friend) Local remedy worked and didnt give me a swollen look. Beejay please advice more about that insect which is common in estates of ooty , so that guys can take care in future OTR.

I am not sure on what it is actually called. Direct transalation to English means "flying ant". Normally the whole area swells up and is more painful than a bee sting.
Waiting for Shiyas to load the pics on FB, will load them here too. We had some amazing fun after you left.

Good looking hard top on Invader there. Sumo's tail gate is a nice fit. Jeep george's vehicle is something i missed. Will make a specific trip to check this out when time allows
