Exoterra's road trip designers will add a scavenger hunt, navigational game and customised play list to your ride.
Are we there yet? That’s one whiny question you won’t be asking on a road trip put together by Exoterra. Why? Probably because you and your co-trippers will be too busy scavenger hunting en route to the Konkan coast, or following a map to a secret waterfall in Bhandardara after your tour operator intentionally lost you along the way.
Reduced to Gears
These are the kind of road trip itineraries the new adventure drive company Exoterra’s Harshit Merchant can customise for you, who has been participating and organising race car rallies in Maharashtra since 1987. His motor movement is well oiled by event planner wife Anjani’s super organisational skills - before this, they ran Chequered Flag, a national Formula One fan club together.
Some Dip to Go With That Trip?
Besides treasure hunts and navigational contests, the Merchants also organise personalised music playlists, snacks for the car, ice boxes and anything else on your whim card. At the destination, hotel bookings, beach barbeques and bonfires can also be taken care of. You will however, have to bring your own car. BYOC.
Me, You and Carzoo
If sending in a list of demands seems like too much work, just grab your wheel and join one of Exoterra's off-the-shelf leisure or adventure drives, meeting a bunch of interesting motor enthusiasts in the bargain. Scenic road trips in the past have included Uttarakhand, Ladakh and Lavasa.
As for us, we plan to take out Carzoo – yes, that’s what the bpb wagon is called – for Exoterra’s next road trip, which will probably be a drive through Jim Corbett national park (check Facebook page for updates). Say cheese, Zoo Lander!
