Do go chasing waterfalls…

Posted on Posted in Dumball 2016

Today we are heading high into the Western Ghats. We’re currently deep inside a nature sanctuary and have been told to not leave our cars or play music – "Turn off your drums and listen my trumpet!" proclaims an elephant on the signs.

The mechanics seem terribly worried about the Ambassadors, but as Dumball One is the oldest – a 1978 mark 3, part of private classic collection – and it seems to be holding its own, we’re hoping they’re all going to make it through the hills unscathed today. We did all stop and check our coolant levels at lunch, and db1 did neck a couple of liters of water so we’re also hoping everyone else did that too…

Where was lunch you say? Well I ‘m glad you asked. Just outside the Indira Ghandhi Wildlife Sanctuary and National Park, there is stunning waterfall system. So once again in uncharacteristic dumball style, we stopped for a lengthy lunch break and a 20 minute hike through the first to get to the waterfall. Probably the furthest we’ve give without our cars…

And as you can see, it was well worth the detour!
