Anybody need more details for enrollment can call Mr Chidambaram, an M&M Guy in Coimbatore -9994099177, 2WD vehicles are also allowed. Seems terrain is not so challenging.

The problem was not with the terrain, they did find very challenging terrain. But there are hardly any 4WD customers in that area. Therefore, they had to find a less challenging route.

I will be presenting myself with a couple of passengers on Fri evening or sat early morning, but if the plan is to do an OTR before MGE on Fri then I may look at rescheduling my onset to Fri...

To the locals or once familiar to the MGE area:
1. Please recommend options for stay other than the once already occupied.
2. Rajith, would it be ok for you to PM your contact number to me, may be we can coordinate and start from Blore together if it fits all right.
