    That looks incredible! As soon as things clear up for me in terms of a timeline I'll give you a yes or no.

    Do you have an email chain going or an Asana project?

    We're still alive. Piecing together our memories of the ride 10 years later.

    (Partial) re-enactment of the famed "India, a Himalayan Adventure, in moderation" trip is taking place Sep-Oct 2020.
    The three wise men (Cooper Bros) already have airline tickets!
    I'm planning to hire Enfield Himalayan 410cc. Detour from Shimla east along the Surej R. Spiti and Lahaul. Then back through new Rohtang tunnel to Mayflower Hotel at Manali.
    When sufficiently rested its time for my 3rd crossing of the pass, hopefully snow-free this time.
    Will check out new route at Darcha which may allow traffic through to Padum.
    Gunna stay over in Nubra valley and planning to visit Lake Pangong.
    Wanna leave bike at Leh and fly to Delhi then home. Time a bit limited.

    Once again Lalli Singh at Karol Bagh is being most helpful.
    Airport pick-up, overnight hotel, Himalayan 410cc for 17 days, escort out of Delhi and remote bike pick up at Leh totals approx 35,000 INR. About $750 AUD.
    Bargain.
