Level: Fewbie and above
When: 24 October 2020, Saturday
Meeting time: 6:00 AM (SHARP - Without any exceptions)
Action Plan: IMPORTANT NOTICE - This is an exploration drive, in a little travelled area for off-roaders, on rather technical terrain. The pace may be slow, and the skills required will include finesse and control, due to the need to pick the right path through an environment with abundant vegetation (shrubs first, then trees), with sporadic animal farms, sets of sand dunes with little room to maneuver, and open sabkhas. This drive will test the complete set of off-roading skills, providing a good opportunity to make you a more complete desert driver.

What to bring along: Loads of water, snacks (for yourself), face mask, rubber gloves, enthusiasm and willingness to learn.
Approximate finish time: 10:30 AM
