m2s: Your report is eagerly awaited. Meanwhile here's one more shot from my camera of the Gypsy - seems it's got a habit of having its front left wheel perpetually in the air!

Ref last picture: This is what group OTR's are for. Try and do not worry if you get struck. Friends all around to come in and lend a helping hand. Jibes and jeers are all taken and given in fun but when ever some one gets in troble all hands are on deck.

Helps you learn what you and your vehicle can / cannot do.

Oops... no, that wasn't meant as a jibe/jeer. My apologies if it hurt anyone's sensibilities. Just thought it was a good action pic.

@SS-Traveller: No accusation here. Just statement of fact looking at the action around the stuck Gypsy and how helping hands are trying to get it out of trouble.

Thanks all for a lovely day out. Loved every moment of it, and also thanks for putting my tow strap into plenty of action . That's what makes OTRs all the more interesting.

I haven't downloaded the pictures from my camera, but Anil has and put his up on the Scorpiofans site:

SUV Trailblazing and the Scorpio | Mahindra Scorpio Club

Will add some more in a day here.

Cheers,

I tried to do a write-up but word's weren't doing justice. In fact, even the pictures are not doing justice. You had to be there, to feel it, to believe it

Out!

Nice sequence shots ... The hump at top beached the Fortuner! Anyone who was not fast enough at top had this problem.

@m2s: Where is your report? Do pen in some description.

@ Sudev. I tried to put the experience to words. However, I'm still in a state of a hang-over, the cloud of dust has yet to settle in . Let the other guys from the forum enjoy not so good pics while I'll try to do a write up over the weekend, although the pictures would say it all.

As for the fortuner, it wasn't the hump Per se that stopped her, it were the side-steps. The best part was, to see all the 4 wheels suspended in air and in movement. The others, struggled to get to the top alone and as a result, got stuck

Find the Gypsy in the dust?
