Nice and informative discussion guys! But, we shall not divert from the main topic of this thread: Salkeshpur Camping.

We can continue this discussion about tow ropes and all in a separate thread.

This whole D ring shackles thing has messed up my mind.
I have a lot of questions and shall wait for the new thread to discuss that thing.

Man. it needed 3 people to even lift that tow rope. :-)
Lol...i didnt get it from him...so planning to make my own 12wheel/axle puller ;-)

Says Winch ‐ 9000lbs. Lol good joke when you cant find one in INDIA!
@yamaniac: Its not a joke. If you intend to acquire one, you will get it in India. But at what price is the question. Winches are available but are exorbitantly priced. So one need to search hard or save hard

Boss, not sure if that is a typo. This meet is for 27th and 28th weekend.

Cheers,

Hi Khan,

Where did you get thermal mat for the Tent ? How much did it cost? Is it the same as the Sleeping Pad on Ozone website?

. .. Not thermal mat Inder. It's a thermo-foam mat. You can get it easily in 'upholstery shops'. 16mm think one would cost you approx Rs 120/- per meter. 12mm one would cost you approx Rs 95/- per meter.

It's the same as shown in the ozone website.

Ozone also has one more variety for ~350 for 1 mat (it looks more chic and sophisticated than the black thermo-foam mat).

khan_sultan / chandan,

For those sleeping at chandan's cottage, I'm assuming we have to bring our own blankets. Can you please confirm?
