I’m currently exploring beautiful Sri Lanka (not off-roading) and will be back end of the month. 

Missing you guys, and the sand between my toes 😂

Hopefully not, as Sri has done tremendous research and bribe the heat god to only wake up after 9

Or maybe after his weather observations and scientific analysis that night at the tip of the Fossil Rock, when the breeze only started at around 4 am 😂

We know that too, and Sri plan to exit by 9 to keep an hour as a buffer till 10 AM for any extreme recoveries or problems.

Depending on the situation and actual heat in sand we might play around till 10 AM.
