Default Short offroading on Sarjapur road, Bangalore on 24th Oct'10

I waited for long enough to see nobody who participated in the OTR posted any pictures or nerration.

Lazy Sunday, invited about 7-8 offroaders for a short offroading trip to a semi dried lake on Sarjapur road. But, 15 turned up. These offroaders now a days get the scent of OTR and come running.

Lake bed is about 2 kms from Sarjapur road, detour to the right just before railway line crossing and Decathlon sports stores. Terrain is muddy and slushy with some clay to play with. Lot of sand quarried pits filled with water. We chose to stay put to mid part which posed decent challenge for 4 WDs.

Pictures will follow

short OTR to say, but almost every vehicle had to be pulled, pushed or winched at some point or other.

Default Pictures from my camera

It was a reccee trip but eventually 20 plus vehicles turned up. As usual we met up at Sarjapur road in front of Total mall. Had breakfast and entered the trail.

Terrain was mostly slush and within couple of meters we encountered the first pile up which was a nasty rut. I was not sure about the water proofing of my CJ3B and was mostly parked and shooting. But eventually DwArF took his first dip inside the water and a major one at that! We survived but water went in everywhere, thanks to pre-historic tech no major damages. Though that wasn't the case for all.

Default Story continues, rather the chaos!

It was total chaos! Many over enthu drivers, flying around the place and at one point of time, we were in a situation where 4 to 6 vehicles were stuck at different parts of the lake bed, the 2 winch vehicles also stuck!

One scorpio sinking and no way to recover, which really woke me up

First rescue attempt ended up with a slightly burned clutch for the MM550 with 35" tyres. Second time it was better, with Nishanth's MM.

Though rescue was good, water played havoc with the electrical connectors and end result a defunct scorpio!

Weather was pleasant so we were lucky, as soon as the recoveries were over everybody decided to move to the bund wall climb, that Dwarak had found.

Some were more interested with splashing and went about merrily on the lake bed.

One OTR irrespective of the age of vehicle or the amount of money spent on vehicles, almost everybody got stuck! Well almost everybody

Dreamcatcher, If you are buying Safari make sure you buy 4 WD version. Two wheeled variant is no use in offroading.
