Its a gradual process Ravi. Nobody can do long distance when you start driving. it all comes with experience behind the wheel.

Suggest you to throw your driver out for a year. I bet you will not hire a driver again. Start with small 50-70km run and then a Mysore run. Then you will see that Sirsi, Shimoga and places in Coastal Karnataka will be a cake walk.

You will also witness vehicles giving more FE than ever.

Hey Basu. Shalom here. Gr8 shots. Its a shame it doesnt fit on the Innova. If it did or you figure out a way of doing it, I'm sure you'll provide us much more fun .. keep driving.

Very true. Initially I was scared to even drive in a different road than the one I knew. Never thought could do 50kms continuously - all that shattered when I was forced to do a trip home due to personal emergency. Around 800Km, in night. After that, sort of understood and settled in for this passion.

Ravi, try once

Saw and read about this trip on your blog (link in your profile) and wondered why you never posted about this trip on here. My net connection is too slow to allow me to watch youtube peacefully. Please post a few pics and some details of the trip so that others can gain from your experience and feel inspired to do it.

I did have a Travelogue (which flopped badly) so did not post photos.

I'm glad to see you have the Innova now and finally joining TeamBHP.
It feels like yesterday that we had met at the Astra Mechanic.
