Bad to hear of the bad experience with the cops.

Was the Aurangabad-Ajanta road?

@hvkumar: This was on the Aurangabad to Pune route. The First toll-booth that you get one the way from Aurangabad to Pune.

Limbe Jalgaon Toll Plaza

Hmmm I never got to update some more info I had about this trip... here are few items I took for emergency perspective:

Rope for towing

Jumper cable - home/hand made! As my car is an Automatic, can't push and start the car, this would have come handy if battery gave way. Ofcourse we would need another battery of a vehicle

Tuble less tyre puncher kit

Holy Thread, instead of "cross belt", would have been more appropriate. No?

Hi Ajit,

This is a good long. It's sad to see that you got tangled in a few issues, but they were minor, and you handled them well. It's great to see you carry some essential equipment/tools like jump-leads, and ropes.

In the previous page, I'd noticed the bottles kept underneath the seat. I do not advise this practice at all. It's highly dangerous, whatever the circumstance. It is possible that the bottles might roll into the driver's foot-well and get lodged underneath the pedals.

@suhaas307: I totally agree with you, that the bottles or anything that can roll or move under drivers seat can be dangerous.

I usually keep only spare news paper and cloth, and in this case as you can see the bottles are under the passenger seat.

And your signature, I exactly know what you mean

I am really glad to know that! The sticker finally did pay off.

Well the wedding was at Central Point. Where we stayed is a totally different story

I actually liked very much this hand-made jumper cable. What I've in my truck is the standard version whose cable length is short.

What I want to know is the specs of the cable that you used. Secondly, won't the length increase the resistance and reduce the ampere or the current strength?

This is domestic wiring cable rated for 660/1100 volt typically used in the 15 amps circuit and both are about 15 feet long.

I have not put it through the multimeter, will get it tested and update.
