Unhappy Offroading Meet on 31-July-2008!!

Guys!
I am S O R R Y ! ! !

This had to be planned in no time. Yesterday, as usual we were in between one of those daily evening meets that we suddenly had to decide upon this.
Steeroid has a flight to catch on Friday before his boss kicks him out of his job. And he is the one who started up the topic with MansIdea giving him full kicks. So, we are now doing this before the weekend dawns upon us.

The DESTINATION:
It's a forestic area in Kerala known as Neliampathy. It's in Palakkad district and surrounded with unlimited greenery and hills.

The DRIVE:
We will leave from Trivandrum by around 5am or so to Trissur. From there on we will either choose 1 or 2 vehicles for the journey ahead.

Confirmed till now:
  1. Steeroid
  2. Mansidea
  3. A S H V I N
  4. Speedzak
  5. Mah1r
More details coming up after my lunch.

Zak ...strikes again & this time with another beautiful location. I am sure this will be a real monsoon drive & Roads are beautiful & well tarred (for a change). From Nenmara, its rubberised & immediately after the forest check post, the pothundi dam view point will give ample opportunities to the shutter bugs. (Ripper - dont miss this one)

Here are some motivators from me.

Green green roads

but watch out for obstructions while you get lost in the beauty of nature
Offroading Meet on 31-July-2008!!-nelliampathy-030.jpg

there are silent ones too
Offroading Meet on 31-July-2008!!-dsc03028.jpg

dont miss the waterfalls in between. dont worry if you miss one as there are plenty enroute
Offroading Meet on 31-July-2008!!-nelliampathy-002.jpg

The Mampara Drive or OFF ROADing & sorry only jeeps are allowed - not by rule but by experience.
The grass/plants shows the direction of the wind & the intensity of the rain. dont forget your rain coats as the front seat of a jeep will not miss any drop

you will enjoy this climb
Offroading Meet on 31-July-2008!!-dsc02973.jpg

& the climb downs

Surprise in between Dont pinch yourself. its true
Offroading Meet on 31-July-2008!!-nelliampathy-017.jpg

& she is not alone
Offroading Meet on 31-July-2008!!-nelliampathy-018.jpg

Learn new off roading techiques
Offroading Meet on 31-July-2008!!-nelliampathy-026.jpg

some survival ones too
Offroading Meet on 31-July-2008!!-nelliampathy-023.jpg

& the FOG. dont forget to check your fog lamps
Offroading Meet on 31-July-2008!!-nelliampathy-028.jpg

Pls. dont miss this one guys, as this will be one hell of a drive. Pls. let me know the final numbers so that i can organise lunch & your OFF ROADing vehicle.

Mansidea's pictures have well, spoke everything of what we are upto tomorrow.
The terrain, vehicles, clothing etc.. everything is explained. Well done!

And, ooops! I made a mistake in my first post here by mentioning trivandrum!!
We will leave from Cochin tomorrow as early as possible. That is as close to 5am. we will reach Trissur and rest of the convoy will join there!

Where is Nikki???
