Great pics of the event Samba

The summary has been shared by Samba very well. This time I did not take my Thar for the event. I took a ride with Bhpian BlackPearl instead. Thank you Sir for the ride

It was another eventful Sunday morning with Kolkata Offroaders. It was raining off and on which made the obstacles more fun and different from the usual events that I attended.

Sharing few pictures and videos from my mobile.

This was my second OTR and nevertheless it was a thrilling experience. Thanks to Samba and 1100D for their guidance in offroading. Some pictures from my end.

But, the Bolero was doing all the climbs in one go even with bald tyres

Posting a video from another day, another era, but still relevant with the title of this thread. These were probably shot by bhpian Debdeep (don't recall his id immediately though) with my camera (since I can be seen loitering around wearing a ridiculous three-quarters in the field below). Interesting Audio/discussions for those familiar with the local language.

Looking at my file archives, it is kind of amazing how much my cameras have captured over the years on these OTR's without myself being involved behind the camera (with friends shooting with them)



Dont practically want to make any point here, but different things happen, due to different situations and motives. No use trying to generate an opinion based on selective presentation.

On a lighter note, sometimes you get blessed with a Baby within 9 Months of Marriage, sometimes even 9 years dont help! Too many conditions beyond control, sometimes pure luck!

This video is superb, of course it has been taken by Debdeep and edited by one of the best. This should have been put up on the thread pros and cons of weekend off-roading -
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-ex...ffroading.html

It is a perfect example of how a driver evolves by off-roading on the weekends, well some drivers evolve. Proves that change is the only constant

We have just had a fabulous OTR last Sunday, where the thread starter was present. Unfortunately, he was present without his camera and thus hijacked mine. He alongwith bhpian Shourya Lahiri, fought over snatching my sole camera and shot some "average" snaps among them.

But, then, since they were shot by my camera, those pictures are mine! So I will gleefully post those snaps and earn credit!

However, before we get to those. Will have to close a little backlog, of OTR's not covered in this thread since the last post.

First up - 31-Dec-2017 OTR, bidding adieu to the year, in style!

And when I mean style, I mean real "Style"! Look at what's behind the Scorpio!

Pics & report : Offroading with Kolkata Offroaders-img_3342.jpg

This also marked the First OTR where my Daughter participated with me. She can be seen here parked beside the Legend, everyone knows and respects, the ever humble Sir Uday Bhan Singh.

Pics & report : Offroading with Kolkata Offroaders-img_3331x.jpg

The OTR was fabulous otherwise, very tricky loose winter sand, required water wading through the Mundeshwari River

Seen here, Distinguished-Bhpian Blackpearl Rocking it

Some more pictures to give a fair amount of idea as to the beauty of the terrain that day

One Last pic, of this fabulous OTR, to not only Sum it up, but bring out a salute of respect

Will continue with "reporting" the remaining OTR's over the next few days, hopefully, will generate some interest!

Continuing with this useless journey!

The third OTR in line with the two above, where the Thread starter was not present, was on 18th Feb 2018, at Harinkhola

However, in a rare stroke of luck, forgot to carry my camera battery after charging it overnight, so no pics from my end. But will post a few from the ones procured from the KO (Kolkata Offroaders) whatsapp group

The terrain was very very tricky this day. Sand was way too loose. Even lighter offroaders were getting bogged down at places.

Now coming to the latest OTR in question!!

We recently had the the most recent installment of Offroad dose of Kolkata Offroaders.

The pictures were shot by bhpian Shourya_Lahiri (who happens to be my brother) and Fabulous_bhpian Samba! However, since these pictures were taken from my camera, oh, I have said this before! Never mind.

Will just post the pictures in line

There will be more content posted of the proceedings of this day, mainly because, the story involves a little bit of Bhpian Samba, my scorpio and also since this was also the first OTR where my father also participated.

More of that coming too soon.

Tricky times these (the month I mean), to spend so much time on this forum, so will end this post here. To continue!

Continuing from where I left off in the last post.

On this particular OTR, due to the absence of a few key members, I was asked by UBS sir to Marshall the event. Which actually meant that I was not going to drive my Scorpio 4wd on this event. I was driving something else, more of that later!

However, as luck would have it, my Scorpio 4wd somehow did not miss the event due to culmination of various factors. The vehicle (which I call Marengo) also showed me that it's not dependent on me, to enjoy what it does best!

The night Before the OTR, my father expressed the willingness to join an event. So did my cousin Brother, Bhpian Shourya_Lahiri and to top it, sequence of events with bhpian Samba's machines, lead to a condition, that the Scorpio would still need to go to the OTR.

So for most of the OTR, my vehicle was mostly used among bhpian Samba and my father. My camera was shared by bhpian Samba and bhpian Shourya_Lahiri

So all the pictures of this event you see, are courtesy them. However, I have mostly no clue, who shot which snap, unless one of them is present in the snap!

So sharing pictures of Bhpian Samba actually rocking it with my Scorpio 4wd. He was actually quite effective with it.

Pics & report : Offroading with Kolkata Offroaders-img_41021.jpg

There were just a few obstacles that I took over, mainly because they were mostly Scorpio non-compatible obstacles!

The Hilltop, as the name suggests, its an ascent and a steep descent back to back, a bane for Long wheel base vehicles, unless a little momentum is maintained, where the front wheel lifts for a bit with just a dab of the throttle at the top, to clear the ridge, (throttle lift-off just at the point of landing to take the descent)

Ascent

Followed by steep descent,

The famed Table top!

Pics & report : Offroading with Kolkata Offroaders-img_41421.jpg


However, the highlight for me on this particular OTR, was my "almost 70 yr old father" (he will turn 70 within a month!). This was his first OTR. Generally he hasn't warmed up to my Scorpio, he has always been a little uncomfortable with its soft suspension setup (he loves to drive my Ikon 1.6 though). But then, he drove it on the OTR!

Here is a pic of a 70 year old first timer, trying to take on the trickiest obstacles at the venue. Not only is the climb steep, there is a drop within it, also, one has to stop exactly after the rear wheels climb the slope, otherwise, there is a deep hole on top of the table. To top it, the drop on the otherside is steeper.

Pics & report : Offroading with Kolkata Offroaders-img_24231.jpg

What surprised me was that, he chose a very slow approach and I was sure that he would either stall the engine, or loose traction. There was minimal dust trail.

Pics & report : Offroading with Kolkata Offroaders-img_24241.jpg

Surprisingly enough, neither the wheels lost grip, nor the vehicle stalled, it also stopped right after the rear wheels cleared the climb (but with the slow approach he chose, that stopping wasn't even a challenge)

Pics & report : Offroading with Kolkata Offroaders-img_24261.jpg

Ending this post with this fabulous pic shot by Bhpian Samba! Of me, spotting/marshalling my own vehicle, driven by my old father! Thanks Samba a lot for this one! The look on my face, kind of reflects my disbelief (with the speed of approach).

Awesome! Good to see the whole family getting into the offroading scene.

The replacement bumper on your Scorp, is that from the first gen Scorpio?
Why didn't you get an offroad bumper instead, seeing that you have done this to improve the approach angle?

Thanks Man! Offroading is kind of addictive so it will only get worse!!

The Bumper is from the Tata TL 4x4, is an exact match for the width, just the original Scorpio bumper bracket is adapted to fit it. An offroad bumper would have done the same purpose at a much higher price (more than triple!) and I kind of like this look, as the TL borrowed styling cues from the Mercedes W124 Bumper. Besides this was done as a tribute to my late Mentor (The Thar Creator!), who had once suggested this while heartily laughing to glory!

Since I left this clue and yet no one was curious about it, it becomes customary to mention it anyway.

On this OTR, my ride was this!

Its going to get quite a few more updates, to make it even more effortless!

15th July was the world cup final from 8 Pm IST.
It's Sunday.
It's Monsoon!

So why not have some fun during the day by having an offroad session at Pandua was the common idea from the 'Kolkata Offroaders' members.
Post the OTR session, our very own and much loving Uday Bhan Singh Sir named this OTR as - 'FIFA final monsoon OTR'!

It was a big group, we had around twenty one 4x4's with more than 30 off-roaders. This time we had variety of cars. Starting from Range Rover, Jeep Compass, old generation Ford Endeavour, Scorpio, Thar, V-cross, Gypsy, MM550 to old Mahindra jeeps including our very famous left hand drive 8181 & even a Jeep FC4x4.

It was a big group to manage.
But by the guidance from UBS Sir and superb efforts by veteran offroading members like Adhiraj Singh, Vidyun Singh, Anirban Ghosh, Vivek Arora and few others this OTR was accomplished successfully without any hiccups.

The starting of the day was pleasant and cloudy, the mid day was very hot with temperature crossing 42*C & the OTR ended with torrential rain.

By the time our convoy reached Pandua and after a quick introduction with Do's & Dont's were explained, our drive started by 9-30am.

The first half was a trail drive from 9-30am to 12pm.

The 2nd half was time to overcome the obstacles from 12-30pm to 2-30pm.

I took a jeep in this OTR, so clicking and driving at the same time was getting very difficult but managed few pics from my end.

Sharing the pics-

Our Captain. UBS Sir.

Rath Yatra was followed by the 4x4 Yatra to Pandua with Kolkata Offroaders to energize the mood for the FIFA World Cup Finale !!

FIFA i.e.- "First In First Out" for the Trail Drive was the command from our Chief Adhiraj Singh who spear headed the entire outing which was very well organized and mentored by Senior Off Roaders. Thanks to Sir Uday Bhan Singh who with time has let the spirit of offroading mature like wine in all these years which welcomed a lot of new faces this time.

For certain personal reasons I have been out of all the action for the past year and a half or so, but it was the most opportune time for me to test the potential of my preworshiped FORD ENDEAVOR XLT 4x4 on this occasion.

For a change since I was myself amidst the action, I could not do justice to the lenses I carried. However, sharing some snaps that I could manage to capture.

The essence of Offroading with KO :
