    Default short ride report

    Some time has passed since I had taken a long ride, so kind of restlessness


    was settling in. Matters got worse when the mega trip to Khunjarab got


    delayed for the month. Longing for the road and wilderness was driving


    me crazy and i had to take a ride despite very high temperatures in our


    part of the country. I was waiting for an opportunity and when it presented itself,


    i grabbed it with both hands. I took two days leave for a family matter and got sorted


    out pretty soon and i was left with a day and half of free time plus recent rains had improved


    the weather a bit, though it was still hot. This trip was to serve another purpose, it was


    a chance to test the equipment and luggage system i was planning to use for


    mega trip.


    Enough b**"'*t now few pics.


    The following few pics r for PBC members


    as i promised them. my prep for the mega trip


    saddle bags (not of very good quality but hopefully last the mega trip)

    First water break. Good timing, not only for me cause there


    was a local guy at road side waiting for bus and the poor chap was so thirsty


    drank almost a litre of water.

    something equally common in summer afternoons in these parts.

    Atlast i made it to the place where i wanted to camp, in dark and light drizzle.


    Setting up the tent in the dark turned out to be a headache cause i have never used this dome tent before and i didnt want to switch on the lamp without the safety of tent due to insects. The words i used while setting up that tent could ban me on this sight forever. Thank God i was alone at that time. finally tent was up and i could set my mind on other things.





    hmm whats cooking
