Shankar, very neatly written logue and the inputs on the "scorp" does add more value to the travelogue.

I think inputs on scorp would have given lots of confidence to the prospective Scorp owners atleast am more confident about this vehicle now

Btw the scorp really looks wild in green and black bumper etc and i assume its a mhawk?

thanks dude
nope the mhawk was over budget when it was launched so I bought the 2.6 in april 08
as luck would have it, exactly one year later the new LX Mhawk was launched at roughly the same price I paid for my 2.6! But no regrets I like the 2.6 engine a lot.
going forward who knows? may upgrade one day!

hi
yes - sorry now I remember that black jeep.
also in this area there is one nicely done up Orange MM which theyve modified a bit to look like a Wrangler. then in one of the inner roads there is a Dark Green and another Dark Grey MM - also look very nice, stock and purposeful
And yes I live next to the Army area where life is relatively quiet - mostly for the benefit of my dogs who are happier here than in some crowded and noisy part of the layout.

yes it is a lovely place indeed. all plantation districts and the people there usually are nice because for the most part they subscribe to a more gentlemanly, peaceful era - a complete contrast to the fast paced, hectic and oftentimes horrible soul-less existence that people in the cities are forced to bear these days.

coorg does have elephants in the wild. however the ones that obligingly posed for the photos are not wild. they are working elephants, employed in the timber camp as you enter the district.
