Default Report: Wild in Wayanad D R I V E

WOW! Had stomach full of D R I V E this time! Never driven an SUV in winding roads with this much of confidence and fun!

Safari had its day too! It would have never experienced this kinda abuse before! Suspension and steering works done is SPOT-ON and we enjoyed every millimeter of ghat section, throwing it out to the corners and drifting!!! 4H drive thru the winding roads was full of fun! The truck was in complete control and Santhosh kicked all the corners/bends with ease!

heh... fogot to lookout at the scenic / exotic locations as we 3 (steer, me and JayD) were busy concentrating on the drive and the way truck performs!

A good and peacefull meet. Many thanks to MaserQ for the 'event management' done!

Finally a report! Good to know you guys had fun! As for the fun with the Safari, full credit goes to you, Nikki, for getting it ready!

A peaceful meet? Ahem! Why do I think there are stories to be told? The silence is what they call 'pregnant'!

3 cheers to MaserQ for getting the D R I V E on the road!

PIKCHERS pleeeeeeeease!

The cochin gang reached back by around 12:00AM. I must say, this was one great drive. The most relaxing one in a long time! Thanks a ton to MaserQ who made it all happen!

Will post a report and pix soon.

For those that don't believe what nikki said, it really was a quiet, peaceful, uneventful meet. What could be reported cannot be put here, so the next time there's a D R I V E, make sure you're there.

End of meet report.

End of meet report.
I guess with all alcohol related discussions being forbidden ground on this forum, the meet reports look to have no 'meat" anymore.

What else can you expect from Malluland
