@ Shahnawaz : I think amohit has some pics of the gypsy with your wife driving. Why don't you shoot him a PM?

no dude, I dont have any additional pics.

By the way when she was driving the gypsy, I was standing at the back and the terrain gave me no option other than to grasp that support bar, to save me from falling of!!

Regards,
Mohit, I think I clicked a few pics from your camera after we finished the ride and were heading back towards the wine yards.

Shahnawaz, my gf says thats the best fun she has had in a 4 wheeler till date. And trust me she has seen quite a lot . Must thank you and your wife.

I must add that the ladies were the bravest of the lot. Specially Shalini aunty. Without her most of this would not have happened.

Ok guys, let me play spoil sport and clear some things here -- without taking away the immense fun we had in the little bit of off-roading we did.

The so called off-roading/OTR that we did was NOT off-roading/OTR at all. Believe me, OTR/off-roading is serious stuff and what we did the other day was just some fun and it being 0.1 on a scale of 0-10 in all respects -- terrain, difficulty, danger, etc etc. I knew that there was NO danger involved and that's the reason I had kids back in the Gypsy monkeying around while I was driving. In a proper OTR, NO WAY would kids be allowed to sit and monkey around that way in an OTR terrain.

Maybe that's the reason I allowed my wifey to try the hillock climb .

I hope it answers your question mjothi. You have experienced the Thipanagondahalli OTR and would know the difference :-)

Get a 4x4 and start doing off-roading/OTR's. Nothing beats it and it is a great family outing/sport combined with adventure and thrills. I can bet that you will forget all other forms of auto-addiction/mods.

Umm, so are you starting any off-roading academy?

And why do you deserve this special status?. I thought that if you visit T-BHP at least once a day and browse through, you would come to know of the happenings and the planned meets.

BTW, there is already a separate thread talking about the next meet. Go find it .

Hi khan_sultan, No special status yaar. I could not log into teambhp for quite some time, since I was really held up in office; hence this request

Sure, shall try to find that link, and shall definitely try to make it for the next meet.
