Guys we had a great time, 25 kids & 20 adults joined us.
We left R.T nagar at 6:30 AM, regrouped at Kanakkapura Metro at 7:30 AM.

Waited for Breakfast to get ready at Idle Mane on the way to kanakapura road,
the Thatte Idle, red chatni & Sagu is Awesome, packed 50 Plates (2 each)

We later reached a lake had breakfast & did some off roading / water wading
with kids, as usual managed to get my Gurkha Stuck, was trying to see if it
will crawl in Slush !! if it did wanted to demo the auto crawl across the
lake !! thankfully it didn't & Gypsy couldn't pull it out but the Might )m 616
did.

We reached the reached the base by Noon, it was scorching hot, Sonata did its
first share of offrading. it cam in almost 2 kms of jeep trail !!! WoW ...

We went up, had food, kids danced & Sung songs, was really nice to share the
joy, later we went further up till the summit, but was very hot so returned to
the base, relaxed at the temple, had some juice & snack, people who had come
paid there contributions & we left for Bangalore.

All the off roading had its toll on the sonata, its front left got flat, so
called in the Gurkha, used the exhaust air jack, (not very useful, or we don't know how to use!) then put Manuel jack replace Tyre, thankfully we had twin piston air compressor too.









Cheers
Sunil
