    Guys, apologies for the delay. I am not a seasoned travel writer! So requesting the readers to please bear with my choice of words as well as photographs. Here is an introduction of the entire experience as further posts will follow.

    Warning – This report may instigate a desire to go out for a similar trip! Some members who have been a part of this trip are probably already contemplating about the next fun adventure.

    One line description

    Seventeen people, a Royal Enfield, a Fiat Punto, a Jeep, two Tata Safaris and an overnight camp at an off-road destination with veg / non-veg barbeque & great music with guitars that became a memorable experience!

    IMG_7663.jpg

    Here is another view, 7 tents were pitched in total!

    DSC01261.jpg

    It all began with the idea of a night out at Rajmachi based on the prior visits to this place by one of our TFI members, Kedar. Here (Link) is his recent experience which influenced us to visit the place. Most people know his Punto, so presenting the person who played a pivotal role in this meet.

    DSC_3539.jpg

    It was easy to get a Safari owner & a Jeep owner wanting to drive their vehicle on such a trail. They usually drive around in a Fiat and such a chance to explore the capabilities of their secondary / alternate vehicle beyond the urban setting is very rare.

    Here is the Jeep! Yes, it is a 4x4! And Yes, it came from an army auction! It hauled most of our luggage & lots of water.

    IMG_8105.jpg

    Our own moderator Italia Linea was itching to put his Safari to good use. So here was our 'Sofa on Wheels' to give company to the Jeep.

    And then there was an overwhelming response to the people that wanted to join the plan. We were forced to cut short late entries since readjusting things like transport, food, tents etc was simply not possible. And then we had a Punto join the fun.

    IMG_8339.jpg

    This was the time we realized that it would be an absolute first time for most of the participants since all of the tents (over half a dozen) were freshly ordered over the internet.

    Allow me to take your leave for now with a promise that I shall update this thread soon enough. There is quite some story left as two more vehicles joined us for the trip.
