Bengaluru to Delhi : Epilogue

February 2, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

So finally the trip of a lifetime came to an end and I am glad that I could complete it though I can’t say without any hassles but I am glad to say god was kind enough to given me the strength to manage them.


Further I’d say that though this trip has ended I wish that saga of life long, long distance travelling trips has just begun.
On this note I wrap this travelogue up.



Here is the screen shot of the drive that I undertook.

    Congrats. Doing such a long drive alone on unknown roads is never easy, and it is commendable that you managed to tackle all sorts of technical problems en route in a cool and sensible manner. Team-bhp network is great and you could have gathered more names and numbers to help you with city navigation and other local issues. We are always ready to help!

    BTW, I have the Garmin GPSMap60C, yours seems to be the next version.

      Thanks HV sir,
      And your are 100% correct about teambhp. It surely is one great place and I’d say that this site was the most instrumental in helping me getting the vehicle itself. All the people that I have mentioned in the preceding blog entries, are member of this(team-bhp) forum.

      You are correct sir, I have a Garmin GPSMAP60CSX. I still am trying to get the hang of it though. Any links, reference webpages, etc where I can get more out of this unit, please do let me know.

    Hi Harjeev,

    I am hoping to do the same journey in the next couple of months. The only difference is that I will be riding down instead of driving a plush vehicle like yours. 😀
    Any advice that you can offer will be highly appreciated on the danger areas and any places to stay on the way.
    Once I reach Delhi, I will bug you further as I desperately require help in purchasing an Army disposal MM550. Had thought of buying a Jeep in Bangalore n restoring it before shifting to Delhi but I gave up the idea.

    Hey Harjeev, U probably wont remember this but last year somewhere in august I spoke to you regarding buying a MM55O. You suggested Shashank, and I want to thank you for the same as I am a proud owner of the same jeep.. I drove it from Delhi to Ranthambore and then put it on truck to Mumbai..I must admit your Blogs are quite interesting and inspirational..Hopefully shall see u someday..Ciao. Vikrant
