JeepHers from Bangalore Jeep Club went on a Women's Day Drive to Sakleshpur
8 JeepHers and 22 participants set out on the Unstoppable Women’s Trail to Sakleshpur. From the time we reached the Flag Off venue, we were made to feel very special with a pleasant welcome by our fellow jeepers and the organisers. All the minute details of the trail were well planned by our organisers and the team went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and pampered.
The trail was a great holiday with a visit to Shettihalli, lots of adventure and sumptuous goodies, fun filled evenings with live music and dance, and the icing on the cake was the tough off roading experience we had and not to forget the endless selfies we took and letting us live the jeeplife to it fullest.
No trail is complete without giving back to the society. On occasion of International Women’s Day, we sent a soulful evening over tea and snacks with the women workforce at the Coffee plantation. The JeepHers contributed generously and we gifted them loads of goodies. The women were impatient and some draped themselves with sarees they received in the gift hampers. It’s a sight-to-behold seeing their glee on their faces, just filled our hearts entirely.
In contrast to what we had expected for an off roading experience, the organizing team had planned a real tough track and the route to the coffee estate which was an ultimate experience for all of us, and reassuring us of what a Compass is capable of doing. The team was very patient with us when we got stuck and coaxed and encouraged us by saying “You can do it, you can do it”. They gave us tips and pointers to beat the odds. At the end we felt “We are the Unstoppable Women” who can do all that the men can do with their Jeeps, and made us realise our potential and strengths.
Our stay at the Machaan Plantation Resort, Sakleshpur was an out of the world experience with wonderful ambience, great food and excellent service by the staff and the owners.
All good things do come to an end, but the memories of this trail will linger in our hearts and mind for a very long time and make us wish we had many more Women’s Day in a year.
“Yeh Dil Maange More” for many such trails in the future.
