MFl / ashvin: whats the plan?

I'm in as passenger if anyone's taking a 4x4 from Pune.. (torqueunlimited, you listening???)

otherwise, on a more serious note, can we hire a 4x4 gypsy in Pune???

Ashvin and cars??? Talk to him only about 2 wheels. No plans from us baba, we dont have 4x4's but if any are available on hire then we can chip in and have fun!

All fans, young, old, new, outdated & rotating ones...please join without askin'...

If not for anything else, we'd require some serious manpower to push some of the (ahem) cars through the slush....so come one, come all...it's time we tested the load capacities of the infamous mountain goats' leaf springs...

Some tips for newbies to off-roading:
Wear good "off-roading" shoes or boots.
Don't wear fancy clothes, there's a high probability that some thorn might tear them.
Avoid shorts unless u're crossing a river bed or desert sand.This, I learnt the hard way.
The least and highest number in a jeep should be "1+1".
Weight and Centre of Gravity at any point of time are VERY important.
And always respect nature and its rules.
PS: Don't expect it to be a walk in the park!

ok guys..
bad news, I'm gonna have to let this one pass.. some last minute family stuff has come up which can't be missed..

moralfibre messaged me saying that he has to take his family to kolhapur tomorrow, havent been able to confirm with desmoquattro yet since he's not answering my phone..

I truly apologise to Roy who we were supposed to hitch a ride with..
