Lol, you could look at it this way too.

The journey was fun, topping it up was the spirited driving of IJS

Unlike other JLR properties this one does not offer much from a wildlife point of view.
True that, especially if you are coming back from Thirthahalli. This place doesn't warrant a drive on its own, could be a place in your bigger plan. Even if it is not, nothing missed!!

So what if the place is mediocre, am sure the company of the people and the journey itself was most enjoyable
Excellent pictures as well Lalu, Thanks for sharing

Yes, as you rightly said, the place is just worth a visit enroute. We visited on our trip to Tirthahalli and enjoyed the quick stops at Sakre Bylu & Gajanur Dam. Mandagadde had too much water and was not accessible so we gave it a miss and just stopped nearby to get a glimpse of the place.

What a feeling to drive Safaris in a convoy. Owning a Safari, I always wanted to do that.

Nice pics and crisp report. As NPV has said, it is not the destination that matters but the company we have that matters.

Finally a 'laluks' travelogue after a very long time, though the 'power puff gang' seems to be missing from the action. Look forward to seeing the complete team in action, sooner than later

Thanks khoj bhaiyya. PPGs would have joined this trip had it been in September, but C2C were having issues with other dates. Hence I joined alone.

Many trips have happened, but without PPGs, probably I should take off to some place with them soon.

After living and driving a sedan for many years, driving an Aria surprised me. So did a Storme. They behave quite well, and I was pretty much at home. This was a very well maintained new Storme of VK.

A video of me taking Storme for a spin


Disclaimer : I am not a Tata fan, nor a SUV fan. This is just my impression after taking it for a spin for some 20 odd kilometers in winding roads. I do not know how much it takes to maintain the vehicle like this. Probably the Safari MEN can explain the upkeep and friendship required with TASS.

Congrats to the C2C group for completing its 1st anniversary! Guruji must consider getting it legally registered now and start filing taxes.
