Aamir bhai, I think Dwaraka is talking about the other video (It appears in the strip containing suggested/similar videos - also labelled as Vid 0077). In that video, you are going downhill when the right rear wheel of your Ford GPW lifts and the chasis of your GPW flexes so much that it looks like the Jeep is going to topple. Even I felt that video was very scary but you managed to get out of that situation in a cool and calm manner. Can you please share with us the thought process that was going on in your head during this scary manoeuvre?

I have seen several of your videos and your off-roading skills and courage is truly commendable.

Dear Santosh
Dawaraka was commenting on the video (Vid 00077 ) in which i was climbing the hill. I was very scared but somehow managed to climb that hill.
Its been a long time i am doing this type of Offroading on these tracks.So i guess that Allahs blessing & experience helped me do this track.

Well, that climb is scary but I found this downhill climb to be more scary, the same video that I was trying to describe in my previous post:

Scary, that was more scarier than a horror movie.

I was expecting the jeep to get torn in two pieces during that kind of mad roading.

Aamir, Allah was certainly on you and your jeep's side during this kind of daredevilery.

@ PAVAN KADAM

The Video you pointed out is one of my favourite n it was taken few years back.

I did this track on two different occasions.
This is one of the Trickiest of all which i had done in past.

Thanx a lot for appreciating my videos on youtube

@ randeep04

Dear Randeep

Actually we planned this tour. It was a one night stay at Murree & then to Nathiagali the other day ( Sunday )
There was no snow when we reached Murree ( Saturday ), even on sunday morning till 11 it was raining ( No Snow ). But we stayed to our actual plan n travelled towards Nathiagali, on our way to Nathiagali we received so much snow & everyone was surprised.
It was a dream come true for most of us.
We were on 13 different 4x4's Willys,CJ 5, CJ 7, Nissan Safari, Toyota Landcruiser BJ40,Prados , Adam Zabardast etc

It was no doudt one of my BEST tour with the courtesy of Islamabad Jeep Club

Hope u liked the pictures

Aamir
