    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)

    Although water was cold and nice and i didnt want to come out of it but i had to do breakfast and complete the packing cause it was getting hot despite the day being partially cloudy.


    breakfast time


    bun and peanut butter with tea


    (prefer the taste over jam or jelly and certainly easy to carry than egg and doesnt require frying or cooking)

    thanks.


    Finished breakfast then packed up and after a quick swim i was all ready to go. Originally i had planned to stay till afternoon but couple of things called for change of plans. One i had to reach Uthal in office and bank time to attend to some business and second,the only option available of a descent shade was my tent which was not going to work very well in that heat . No large tree in sight so the decision was easy.


    camp site after pack up



    short ride report - 053




    Left the camp site the way i found it, no shopper, no wrapper and no other such mess. My advice to all outdoor enthusiasts and campers never leave such things when u leave.


    Only sign of camping
