    Default Rohtaas Adventure on Sunday 16 th May 2010

    Dear Members & friends of IJC

    Islamabad Jeep Club is always striving to explore new venues of Offroading in this region.
    This time Raja Aamir of Sar e Alamgir & Fahd ( Offroad ) invited Islamabad Jeeb Club members to explore the area near Rohtaas Fort.
    IJC accepted their invitation & on Sunday 16 th May 2010 we went on six vehicles to the area. ( Raja Aamir's vehicle was the seventh one )
    We started our journey early morning at 8 am from Rawat. Reached Dina where Raja Aamir welcomed us.
    We started our Exploring mission from Rohtaas n reached Jhelum after a very adventurous day at around 9 pm.
    Did so many tracks on our way specially Sand Run etc

    Few vehicles got stucked in Sand & mud. Retreiving those vehicles was another adventure n high level of coordination was witnessed between all the friends.

    Although it was a very hot day but all the friends enjoyed thoroughly.

    At the end of the journey Raja Aamir gave a very levish dinner at Al Bilal Hotel Jhelum.

    As usual lot of pictures & videos were taken n will be uploaded soon

    Thanx

    All IJC Members

    Msg from nn

    A long yet lovely day out of off-roading with IJC, at the dry river bed next to Rohtas Fort (near <st1:place w:st=" border=" 0="" alt="">Jhelum</st1:place>) on the invitation of Raja Aamir and Fahd (Off-Roader)
    <o:p></o:p>First of all must thank Almighty for granting us with all the blessing. And for keeping us out of harms way and bringing us back safely. <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    We set-off at 080 from <st1:city w:st=" border=" 0="" alt=""><st1:place w:st="on">Islamabad</st1:place></st1:city>, in a convoy of 6 Vehicles, <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Shabab and Zeb in Safari Cruiser!<o:p></o:p>
    Ali and Nomi in Land Rover Tomb Raider <o:p></o:p>
    Zohaib and Salman in FDO 1 (aka Rescue 1122)<o:p></o:p>
    Ahsan and Imran in Lazzaz<o:p></o:p>
    Asad and Shahzad in ~Jero<o:p></o:p>
    Me, Aamir Bhai and Zohaib’s friend in my LC<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    At Deena Raja Aamir Sb joined us in his Open Top Land-Rover, Fahad was driving the Land Rover. <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    After fixing few electrical gremlins in Shabab’s Safari Cruiser, and spilling Lassi on Pinky's New BlackBerry (long story)!! We set-off on the road to Rohtas Fort, and eventually drove down on to the dry river bed. Once in the sandy river bed, the child in each of the driver’s raised its head and everyone started doing high speed runs, donuts, water splashes and what not. Because of such vast area and higher speed runs, still photography was probably very limited, some of us did make some vdo clips of various acts. <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    We stopped over for a short / quick snack / lunch in the shade of trees and set off again. I felt that we hadn’t had much adventure till then so I tried something different, and different it was!!! I got the LC stuck in soft wet sand near a water crossing. The LC was truly beached, i.e. belly on the sand and wheels spinning in the air. The moment it happened, I knew we are in big trouble. What followed over the next hour and half or maybe more was just pure coordination between all IJC gang and Raja Amir, Fahd and their Mechanic. The LC is one heavy beast, even without me sitting inside!!! <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    We managed to completely break / snap 3 different steel winch cables and two fairly heavy duty tow straps as well. Zohaib’s High Lift Jack was of extreme help and we managed to slowly life rear wheels and place stones under it and some more and more. In between we had the most amazing action with three powerful 4X4s (Safari, FDO1 and Tomb raider) with individual tow straps attached directly and also in tandem to try pulling together to get the LC out and couldn’t believe it didn’t move at all out of the bog hole. Everyone was almost out of ideas. I couldn’t really believe a tractor or two would have enough power over n above the three beast we used together to get us unstuck. Finally as a last straw we got Raja Sb's (FDO1 and Safari’s winches out of commission with broken cables) Land Rover parked across the river bed on rocky terrain, higher by about 8-10 feet and from there we successfully managed to pull out with the help of the winch. Once the front wheels were out I just pushed the accelerator to the floor and drove out like anything………<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    But that was not all, being the true off-roaders that we are. Shabab and the Safari cruiser were feeling really hot and tired after all the hard work they put in to get the LC out. So being the true IJC Buffalo, they decided to take a dip in the pool of water just 200 meters away from where I had got stuck. And guess what, Safari got nearly sunk as well, water went inside the cabin and more. The rear silencer was dipped fully in water and water went in that as well, as engine shut off. Luckily this recovery was much quicker with two Land Rovers winching and pulling in tandem and we were out within 20-25 minutes. But with so much water in the silencer, electrical gremlins made the starting of Safari an issue. Things improved slowly once water came-out of the silencer just like out of a hand-pump, must have been more than 10 litres in there. The Safari’s new engine was saved by the grace of Almighty and eventually seemed to be running fine.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    In addition to that we had plenty troubles of over heating with various vehicles, especially Raja Sb’s Land Rover, which eventually gave up the ghost and had to be towed the last 15+ kms by our Rescue 1122 vehicle of the day FDO1. <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    In between, we had the most fun with Acceleration runs; high speed tail slides, donuts, and jumps from the ridges etc. Lazzaz managed to break the right front shock mount after the jump (from which it landed really awkwardly on front right wheel only). <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    After reaching back <st1:place w:st="on">Jhelum</st1:place> we were treated to a nice dinner in Bilal Hotel by Raja Amir Sb. Finally we set-off back for ISB at 10:30 and I managed to get home just before 1 am after dropping off various passengers with me.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    This morning I could not believe the amount of mud stuck under the LC. The wheels had so much sand /mud stuck onto it that on the way back the wheels were wobbling / bubbling like mad above 85kmph, because the mud weight had really imbalanced the wheels. Hopefully all will be sorted by a proper wash/ service. <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Unfortunately, despite my best intensions (charged the battery the night before, put new memory card etc) I did not manage to take a single picture with the DSLR. Have few quick snaps and small vdo clips from the mini digital which was in pocket. Will upload them soon.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    I would specially like to thank each and everyone person who was there and put in selfless effort in trying to get the LC unstuck despite the hot weather and such a long day. Everyone was splashed all over with mud and sand while trying to get the job done. <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Once again it was a truly unforgettable and memorable trip for me and am sure for almost all who came along and had had great fun. Thank-you ALL, May God Bless us all.

    it was a wonderful trip with various type of terrain. from speed runs to jumps to mud bashing to mountain climb.............it was in short a treat for any 4x4 buff.

    loads of issues encountered however with the grace of Almighty we managed to overcome most...

    My Jero engine stalled on one of the speed run even though the temperature was at half....... my mistake was to do the run with a.c on in 40 degree

    initially i thought i had ceased the engine but then it started and behaved somewhat ok with an occasional missing factor....

    Next morning i started the jero and it was running perfectly smooth. engine was as sound as earlier and the oil was also normal....while speaking to my guru jee, he told me that it could be one of the nozzle getting blocked somehow which later on opened.

    At the end thanks everyone for making it yet another memorable IJC event. and thanks Fahad and his team for the hospitality.

    i will be uploading my share of pics shortly.

    Strom,

    Lazzaz did pretty good. I am quite satisfied with the performance. We did all the tracks in 4X2 due to some issues in front differential.

    Another stupid thing we did was to run it in extreme conditions without temperature gauge . ECU needs to be fine tuned to get more juice out of it.

    Apart form breaking a front shock and its mount at 70Km/hr jump, everything went smooth.
    Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.......

    @Aamir Bhai: Really wish I was there, seems like a truly memorable adventure, hats off to Fahad and Raja Aamir for arranging this.

    However the prospect of recovering a TLC stuck all the way is quite nightmarish for me This scene looks uncanningly familiar to me (and to Prince Jadoon too) as there was one un-talked about weekend a couple of months ago where the brave "Rescue vehicle" of this trip was found in a similar squat with just my puny 2LT Jeep left out to try and tow it out! Very similar background scenery and catchment areas there too and yes, incidently Fahad was also there!! We called a tractor after breaking the winch cable and the tractor got stuck as well! We only managed to get the vehicle out after a few hours of digging out the dinosour's wheels and underbelly and another tractor with the dozer blade paving the ground and pulling hard!

    Aik minute.. aik minute.. everyone will get a chance to pull my vehicle out.

    Doc sb's LC got stuck and it took 5 vehicles to pull it out, eventually.
    A total of 2 broken winches, 3 torn tow straps, 1 broken baelcha (shovel), and 3 hours of hard labor (read combined team effort ) by 15 people to get him out..... Speaking of which, doc sb, you still owe us a lunch
    @ Nomi, I must say your talent for suggesting captions for any and all images is exceptional. You always come up with some amazing and appropriate comments, love them!!
