The Adventures of Tuk Tuk Challenge!(Day 4)

img-20161110-wa0004 Our Tuk Tuk team had a tough day today. Rupa prabhu shared a glimpse of his adventures below:

 Today is a long one 289 km from Panjim, Goa to Kundapur, Karnataka.

Starting was not so good, I was driving on my side and a car overtook us and even though there was no one coming, he cut into us too soon and the back of his car hit our front side and jolted us. It was not too hard so I managed to keep the auto rikshaw on the road. I then tried to chase the guy who obviously did not bother to stop or anything, but soon he was gone!

And guess what? after 100 kms on road, in the middle of no where, our accelerator cable broke!

I stopped one guy on scooter and he kindly called his mechanic who was about 3 kms away and agreed to come. In the meantime our back up car was nearby and came, but everything seemed to go wrong today as they had the wrong cable with them 🙁

After that the mechanic came and changed the cable however we lost one hour in this. But we are now back on the road!!

We will reach Gokarna and hopefully have darshan of Mahabaleshear Shiv lingam. Mahabaleshwara Deva temple is located on the shores of the Arabian Sea in the holy town of Gokarna.  The history of this temple img-20161110-wa0003comes from a legend related to the mighty Ravana of Ramayana. The deity here is about 1500 years old. According to the legend (Read More..)

 After the temple visit  we will still have about 150km to go!!!
 
Its not good at all as the rikshaw does not have lights and at night on road it is a nightmare, two days ago we had to use a torch to reach our destination and we really could not see anything!!!Please send in your good wishes so that we can keep going despite adversities. I guess this is why we call it a Challenge 🙂
