khan did the 1st half, a stock thar wasnt in comfort zone of the spidey driver, so tejas did the last bit in the question of headers...

Kunal, AKC Team,

Need some route advice...

How does one come from lonavla to Karjat? I see in Google earth the way is -- exit to Khopoli -- Khalapur -- Wandhal -- right to ND Studios? -- Karjat?

Also some micro level directions, GPS turn points, GPS destination of stay/camp would be greatly appreciated.

Stepping away from sparring with the Thar, for a moment, this is the condition of stock CJ3B side steps after recces for EXAMM and AKC.

I could have unbolted them before the recces but since I did not, they had to be hammered down and one of them had to be cut out.

So if you value your jewels please dont let them hang unprotected.

But it was so much fun!

Genesis,

Thanks for the demo shot, for all to see.
Incidentally, I am not planning any kind of steps on the side or at the rear for my 340.

If you can't climb a Jeep don't ride a Jeep.
...the new one liner.

Registration/ completion of formalities ends on Thursday the 30th of june.

I find it quite amazing that some people have still not done the needful.

If you intend to attend the AKC2011 complete all formalities NOW.

Guys please fill a full tank of Petrol/diesel before you turn off the highway.

If you run low on gas at the event NO fuel is available for 15km.

Everybody please carry your own Poison as nothing is available nearby.

Same for personal medical supplies.

see you soon.
