Guys, all de best. This would be one hell of a trip. Sam, some more pics of the nano would do wonders.

Plus, apart from the travelogue it would be wonderful & useful if you can review the nano's performance on long trips. Parameters could be as follows:

i. Mileage (city & highways)
ii. Handling (Highspeed stability & Braking)
iii. Engine performance -> when the car is run non-stop for a few hours
iv. A/C cooling

etc., etc.,

Well, if you complete the round-trip, I am sure this would be an excellent effort that would market the nano. I wouldnt be surprised if this trip is going to be sponsored by TATA motors as a part of NANO endurance.

What do we expect next? NANO & Ladakh?
