Default My version of report with Pics. (III)

Yes, I am back after a small holiday session!

After Vazhachal Rapids, blah blahs and lunch, it was time to start the engines and go deep into the Jungle!!


The get together! The viewing gallery for the Rapids. And our very own MaxBHP enjoying his share of a poor birdie!!!!


Carfreak caught hopping after food!!

Then, Joz and his better half Anju had to go back due to some very much unavoidable reasons. We tried all the methods of persuasions, warnings, teasing, Frightening, coaxing to the max!! But in the end, we always liked Joz and we didn't want him to be kicked out of his house. So, we let him go!


Laughter time!!

From this point it's pure jungle. Here, there's a Forest checkpost.


Checkpost office space! Nikkibike signing for all!

We were supposed to record our Vehicle numbers in front of the forest officer in charge.

All the 6 Vehicles where parked in a line for him to glance and take note.

After his usual murr murrs, umm ummms etc.. he was curious to know about our destination, whereabouts, profession etc... Then he wanted to know about the fancy T-shirts we were wearing!! We invited him to Team-BHP and soon we will have one more new member.

Then the drive was pure fun! Traffic was ZILCH, roads were bad and narrow at the same time, It was thick forest on both the sides, beautiful and scenic it was, innumerous hairpins, mountain passes and a bunch of good and crazy BHPians. We were doing pretty respectable speeds thru the wild! Kicking up some serious dust. We always kept some margin as precautions especially on blind curves.


Rumbling thru the Jungle!! Blurred vision with dust added!!! Sometimes the roads were well tarred and sometimes there wasn't any!!!!

Each of us had some time leading the pack while the rest followed. The best was to see Mr. QuickSilver molesting and raping his yet a Virgin OHC!!! That car collected collected some dust on it's body for the first time ever. Here's a short video: RapidShare: 1-Click Webhosting (check out Jk's serious face too!!).


Then all of a sudden, MaxBHP takes control of the pack and stops!! And the pack follows too. Then we hear an unfortunate news!! They are leaving too. (Max, it's ok! Next time make sure you stay till the end of the meet. We missed a lot of Fiat bashing oppurtunity without you!!).
