Only one wanting to sleep alone in the camp with some fishy inflatable thing on both nights during the trip – Desert devilTongue out!!
Only vehicle whose bonnet did not need opening during whole trip – LC FZ100
(Sorry above is a lie, I did open it to help jump start someone, don’t want to mention which one, but what did they expect with their British vehicle!!!)
LC FZ100 went up to Lake Saiful-Maluk without the need for engaging 4X4 let alone 4L. Did it all in 2H, I am both amazed and proud about this capability).
