As the excitement began to spread among the team, a 3-man Dailysports unit was requested to participate in the 2nd annual Commando 4×4 expedition. We shared the specific responsibilities among ourselves. While Enosh and Uditha took over Live Updates and photography, I personally chose article writing.
With the tiniest hassle, we managed to arrive at the start off point in Thalapathpitiya right on time. Immediately after the delicious breakfast meal, the crew was escorted to the Land Rover that was basically turning out to be “Home” for the next 6 days.
Unlike the other muscle machines, our vehicle was rather open-type and convenient in many ways. It wouldn’t be untrue for me to say that the real 4×4 experience was endured by the media crew and none other.
Before we knew it, we were at the northernmost point of Sri Lanka with luxury accommodation to spend the night.
3rd of August – Earlier in the day, we prepared ourselves by getting the equipment together while ensuring that we had enough battery in hand.
