Sometimes I sign up for stuff without reading the fine print

I remember once I had signed up for a 15K race thinking it was a 5K race. This time when I signed up for Off Road Driving, I figured I would be in an ATV like in Costa Rica.

Noooo!! These are the old Range Rovers going over near vertical climbs up and down and thru water (that river in the picture was chump change compared to some of the water we went thru). Pretty amazing what the vehicles can do in low gear.

Once I got the hang of how to steer the vehicle inspite of sitting at a 20 degree angle on my left or right, it got easier. That is if you do not count the couple of times I manage to stall the engine by releasing the clutch too quickly. That was manual transmission driving for me for the first time after I got my license in India in 1993 !!

Very enjoyable experience though. I would love to come back and do this all over again.
