Four wheel drive : How we plan to get around



A four wheel drive vehicle is essential if we have to have access to civilization. The vehicles currently under consideration are the Mahindra Bolero Invader and the Tata telcoline pickup truck. The Telcoline is not a four wheel drive, but it is cheap enough. If the land is not too rough, we would like to go for that. The vehicle could be useful in going out to town and gathering the monthly supplies and in emergencies.

A motorcycle or an ATV would be great for intra-resrot travel. ATVs are not available in India, but it is possible that we can build one by using an old Enfield Bullet 35 engine. We will have to talk this through with an experienced mechanic before we embark on that project.
