Usually during the off-road events, one person apart from the jeep driver is allowed per jeep. So, if any 4WD participant has an empty co-driver's seat. one of U guys can ride shotgun.

I would love to be a part of this event, but I have work that weekend. When's the next off-road meet? It will be fun to do it in a group, after 4x4ing on my own usually.

Rgds,

Agree on the heat part.
Its touching 43 degrees, expect an open field to be 45 degrees. Perfect recipe for a heat stroke.

I spend the entire day in that heat with no stroke .... one just has to take the basic precautions and all is fine . NOTHING TO WORRY

Considering the heat, Chennai 4x4ers are doing it in the evenings.
Start at around 4PM and finish in the night.
We just went for an OTR on saturday.

That is very incorrect and I am sure you were just guessing. Shotgun passenger is the protector:

its from the days of the wild west.
the mail stagecoaches used to carry mail & bank cash
and were regular targets for the bandits en route,
so they had a "cleaner!!" second, sitting beside the stagecoach driver who was armed to stave off the bandits,
hence the term riding shotgun
