Meeting time: 5:30 AM (SHARP - Without any exceptions)
Action Plan:A drive in a little travelled area for off-roaders, in rather technical, but accessible, 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 soft 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. Part of the drive will explore an area of longitudinal dunes where we'll practice ridge riding on very soft tops.
Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 8-10 inches of ground clearance.
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
