While tracking the third spot, Rajesh ended up doing some recovery for the locals also:

Another successful recovery and another biriyani IOU to Rajesh!

No, not Nishant getting stuck, but him clearing a hurdle.

That's it from me.

Ofcourse, we were disappointed. A 550 made for the Army - much much stronger than we thought.

This is a great training ground for starters and guys who wanna test their newly built 4x4's out...very less chances of anything going broke (vehicle and wallet included)...I sense a lot more action at this place in the future!

Even the RS you see in the picture did a couple of climbs and descents!

This OTR was organised for this very purpose.
There were lots of people who had new vehicles and also people who had added something new on their vehicles or rebuilt it completely.
This was a welcome break and a much needed OTR for most of us.

Cheers

A good OTR. It was good to take out my "KHAKHI" into the terrain it enjoys being in the most. Man it performed great. (Wish I could say the same about the driver though!!) The only problem i could see was the front wheel arch extensions. Was amazed at the amount of power it has. thanks to all seniors and friends who helped me out and for the wonderful pics. I think Asish has some videos too. I'll see if i can get those and put it up.

I am sure all of us enjoyed OTR and the "After hrs" of it too..
Both the "KHAKHI" n I are looking forward to the next one.

Cheers

Nishanth

Default Recovery

Hi Bangalore JEEPers,

Nice terrain, and I agree with Venky, that it is a good initiation area for newbies.

Nishanth's JEEPs looks very smart. How was it recovered?

Did you guys anchor the front with 2 JEEPs and reverse the JEEP down the slope with the Steering locked to the left?

Or was it winched up the slope by Swastik Viji?

Regards,

Arka

PS - Please use Gloves and Cable Dampers with ISW Ropes.

Looks like it was pivoted and turned anticlockwise?
