Intresting, Shannawaz. But with Samurai opting out, you seem to have the only off-roader right now.

Btw, if it rains, jump into the cars & sleep there !

Shoot. Am out of Bangy on both weekends.

Would be really great if it could be postponed for the 4/5 Oct weekend or any later weekend for that matter.

Default Wildcraft : JP Nagar.

Another Wildcraft outlet is in JP Nagar 4th Phase, Dollars Layout.

This is close to the Delmia signal. On JP Nagar Ring road, when coming from Bannerghatta Road, turn left at Delmia. You'll find the shop to your left.

Hi Shahnawaz,

Which car/bike/suv/4x4? MM540 4X4
Which dates work best for you? Sep27/28 (my boss will be on vacation at that time ;-))
Can you bring tents? not sure.

Will start looking for some recovery gear(tow ropes) from now.

Cheers!

There is one more Wildcraft store near Marathahalli, as we descend the flyover from marathahalli side towards Whitefield road.

They also rent the tent.

Unhappy

i would have loved to come in my mm540 but i have a few problems
1) i fell down and broke my hand and its in a plaster.hope it comes off soon.
2) my jeep is in coorg and not in bangalore.
3) i have never been offroading except for the 300 metres of slush i face while going to my estate where i need to engage 4wd.
4) its ramzan time :(

Other options include: Hotel Ashritha (Rs 500 approx for a double).
