It was 1 of August I was browsing TripAdvisor for resorts and planning my road trip to Bhandavgarh when I received a message in the WhatsApp group from @PrashantKMathur sir. I never miss his messages, and so this one. I was surprised and happy on seeing the message about the most loved SUV and most awaited drive from Ford. I immediately cancelled all my meet-up plans for the weekend. Fast forward to 3 days, it was Sunday, the drive day. I woke up early in the morning, took my camouflaged rain jacket which I bought for the monsoon drive meet-up but never wore and begin driving towards Chevella. The traffic throughout the drive was almost nill and I could constantly maintain 60kmph enjoying the empty road, drizzle and my TDCi engine's roar. The area is 70kms away from my house and I reached the venue by 10:00 AM starting at 8:15 AM with 20mins break waiting for my friend who never turned up. I was the first person apart for Team Ford. Was received really well by Vibrant Ford AGM and team where I get my car serviced and by Modi Ford team where I bought my car. 20 minutes later after finishing all the formalities and coffee break I was into the huge and beautiful Off-roader the ENDEAVOUR. I was accompanied by Mr. Sarath Ford's off-road trainer and he took me for the first round. The track was really good with lush green trees surrounded and even more tricky due to continuous rain and drizzle the night before event. He explained me everything about the capabilities of the vehicle, different drive modes and showed me how it performed in 4low with ease and how it struggled in 4high. The track and the experience was so good that I wanted to go on another round and he agreed for it. Finished two rounds of the drive and the time was 11:00 AM when I met @Jag's. Few minutes of discussion with the trainer and AGM Vibrant Ford sales I was back into my car carrying all the memories and small souvenir (Ford Hat) from the trainer going back home. Off-road Track. These obstacles were really scary to see. A small souvenir from the trainer (Ford Hat) on the music system. He's the trainer Mr. Sarath.
Hyderabad to Vikarabad, explore the unknown terrains. Unknown terrains in two Civic's? Yes, we did few off road stunts too. Total distance : ~80 Kilometers (Gachibowli to Vikarabad) Road condition: Mixed, few good and bad patches but nothing alarming. On Friday night Mr.Vishu shared few pictures of his Vikarabad drive, which we have never seen or heard of it. Me and @Saran decided to recce the place on Saturday morning. We started at 7AM in the morning, drive was fantastic, roads are filled with fog and surrounded by greenery. We reached Vikarabad by 8AM, yes we pushed little hard as we started late. We usually take left turn from Vikarabad and drive towards Ananthagiri. This time we took right turn from Vikarabad and explored the pristine side of Vikarabad. Reaching this location is little tricky for the first timers, this road is not logged in Google maps. Drive video (Watch in 1080P) URL : https://youtu.be/3yVpJPS38Ys
