So, I woke up to the news that my friend bought a Mercedes Benz. Like always, a gang of friends bank on that one car for all road trips. Unfortunately, it was a sedan and we mocked him for buying a car which can't do road trips on different kinds of terrain. This offended him and he said, "You know what? I'll show you all that my car can go literally anywhere." and I said, "You wouldn't be able to drive in even our own Karnataka." This was at 2 AM at night and in his frustration to prove his car was worth more, he said, "Pack your bags, we're leaving in 2 hours."
Since this was a last minute plan, we didn't have a complete Karnataka route planned out. But, to our benefit, all of us were from different parts of Karnataka. In no time, we came up with a rough route map - but, we all had an understanding: at any point, if it got too difficult to continue, we would turn the car around and drive back home to Bangalore. Being four of us, we pitched in Rs. 5000 each and we figured we would see how long it would last us.
