Wow, what an incredible day. Thank you sincerely to @Gaurav and @Srikumar for being so patient and methodical in every recovery, ensuring everyone walks away unscathed and educated. But we had a lot of recoveries!!

My first fewbie drive, with @Jeepie as my copilot was amazing but challenging !! I feel there is quite a jump from newbie to fewbie level but I managed well except for the last stretch of the day where I really got stuck ! In all the panic I couldn't even get my car into 4 low and didn't even know where the button of my differential lock was located !! Luckily @Gaurav and @Srikumar were there to help me out and save my little blue.

I definitely learned a lot today and my confidence got an incredible boost. I was satisfied but exhausted after a full day of driving !!

@Salarios, Thanks for sharing. I watched your video, allow me to give you two advices 

- both hands on the steering (you might loose control if you hit a bump)

- use a mount to make videos and don’t let your passengers record when car is moving (if you hit a bump, they might get hurt)

@Salarios could you send a picture where you hit your bumper. From the video it seems that you hit the bumper in the front and not from the right side.

@Srikumar 

You are right, I hit it in the front.

Thank you @Emmanuel  you are right, driving with a single hand is a bad habit I need to cut. And yes for the video footage, I do have a mount which is attached to the passenger headrest which I use when no one sits there.

You need to get a proper bash plate done. Patrol Y62 stock bumpers are not meant for offroading. And if you intend to use this car for regular offroading it's 100% worth the investment
