Please give more details on this team its mission and its members. With HVK at the helm any frontier will be conquered and all the elements overcome. Wishing this team an exciting and unforgettable adventure and hopefully an equally thrilling photo filled thread for us.

Arrow Raid De Ladakh

Saw off the Ladakh team, HVK's (Mumbai) car and Glen's (Bangalore) car yesterday morning at Ahmedabad Ring road,had chai and gup-shap. I was to be part of the team, but could not get leave, man proposes .......

The team was all pumped up and prepared to the gill, their spare space filled with anything you can name. Dr.Mandar from Pune with Dhananjay is ahead on the road, yesterday morning near Chittaurgarh at 10 AM and Anirudh somewhere around Gwalior, he's driving up from Hyderabad, had some A/C problems and lost 4 hours of drive time. They'll all meet up at Delhi today morning, seheduled to reach Patnitop tonight and tomorrow evening / night Kargil.

2 more vehicles are likely to join up with them enroute, the convoy wold be about 5-6 and 20 people, what a way to raid the highlands!!!!

Just talked to HVK; everything's going green, they are reaching Ambala, it's a 5 vehicle convoy now, Dr.Mandar up ahead and they would meet up at Jalandhar.

So much planning has gone into this event; wish them God speed and lots of fun.........

======
