Thank you sir, for the understanding. Once Jeepcaptain updates the account we are ready to roll to the third day.

From Day 03 onwards, the real expedition begins. We'll be seeing the beautiful greens near Sangla and Chitkul.

Look forward to no_enthu_da's pictures. They are surely going to be amazing.

@Jeepcaptain - While you complete your post couldn't resist asking - Why were the cops attracted to your jeep? Was it because of the KL registration?

From what I know, his Bolero was stopped by cops for a variety of reasons all over India through his trip - out-of-state registration, dark sun film, stickers of Discovery/Nat Geo. We saw double standards by cops in Panchkula - stopping our cars for sun film when every other local car had sun film too!

That's very normal.
One of the best ways to avoid all this is have a 'Press' sticker. Generally the cops are a bit hesitant about stopping media cars for some weird unknown reason.

Thats a fast one. But, some smart cops ask for the Press ID too.
I used to manage with a Visiting Card of one of my Press Acquaintance.
When ever I was stopped, I used to open my vallet in pretext of taking money out and Indirectly flash the card with huge PRESS printed in RED. They simply used to say " Saab Aap Press se ho.. Tho Pehle kyun nahi bataye? Pls go on"
This worked in Pune, Mumbai and even NCR.
Unfortunately lost that Vallet and the card too.

Lol. yep that's the way to do it. Either you have a friend's visiting card, or you have a visiting card of your own with words 'Media' written somewhere on it.

Kerala to Delhi in Boleros
On August 8 th 2 team members of the Indo Polish Himalayan Expedition team started their Expedition. NJ my bro started the Expedition from my home town Adoor, Kerala NJ is the one who is going to be travelling and driving for the longest distance among all of us in this Expedition.. About 12,000 + kilometers of travel in 31 days. He was expected to be back home only on September 8th after completing the Expedition.
VE another team member from Trichur, Kerala joined NJ in the Bolero from Trichur and they started to Bangalore to join with SPK and his Bolero Stinger 4x4.
So there were 3 team members in 2 Bolero's coming to Delhi. One 4x4 and one 2WD. All the three of the were travelling to Delhi by road for the first time and they were guided by our chief HV Kumar on the phone throughout their trip.From time to time I was also checking their progress over the phone.
They had a wonderful drive from Bangalore all the way to Delhi. It was raining in most of the places in Karnataka, Maharashtra, Gujarat and Rajastan. So the photography possibilities were limited. However they managed to click some good pics which I will share it with you here.

Now let the pic speaks

Start of a Dream Expedition!
