Sure thing V12. Heres one where we were 50 km away from any signs of mankind. We just kept on crossing hills and mountains until we found a spot to camp on!

And this is where we camped for a night. The tent is attached to the front right wheel since the wind was just blowing it away. Also, me and a buddy made a bar out of the bonnet. Primarily because there were SNAKES all around the grassland.

GTO, Where on good mother earth did u go rambling like that?!? I am at a complete loss for words here. Awesome pic dude! They can use it for some tourist mags. And to find a place like that in our country without a country bumpkin looking into ur camera.
How did u find your way back to civilization? Hope u didnt go in circles like thompson and thomson.

Thanks for the compliments guys.

Need4Speed, This was off the Bombay Nasik highway. We took a right from the highway into the fields and just kept on driving. Most of the times that we off-road, none of us have any plan. We find a spot that looks good...and take it from there. Coming back was as simple as using the compass, and some landmarks that were noted along the way.

SLK, my friend was playing photographer. There are actually LOADS more pictures. Will scan them for you guys to see. No I didnt sleep in the tent, preferred the comfort (or lack of ) of my Jeep. The others did though.

S350...Sure, come on down to Bombay and I'll teach you a thing or two about off-roading!
