FREE CLUBS ARE EXPENSIVE
Most of the free off-road clubs are backed with car businesses:
- To influence you to modify your stock vehicle.
- Promote sponsor products with biased reviews.
Encourage you for fast drives to maximize damage.
Most of the social off-road clubs aren't safe without expertise:
- No presence of structure, ranks and drive levels.
- Limited technical knowledge for extreme recoveries.
Results in higher accidents and damage ratio overtime.

@Simon D@Michael Chattle@James Lovell@Marketa Dobesova@DP1011@Hugo@Bjoern@Rob H@Tareq Al Turq@Beide Worku@Amr Aydin@Fabien Monleau@Patrick You guys/gals rocked last night ! The terrain was bumpy and our attempt to drive in a straight line seemed easy at the start (pylon track ) but once it got dark and there were no more reference points, we had to rely on the GPS. In one particular area, and just like the countless stories of planes and ships losing their compass bearings, we encountered the exact same and I found myself looping around in a technical area while my gps was going completely bonkers ! After a short break on a sabkha, we headed back in and drive almost straight back to the starting point and exited at the same place from where we started 4hrs earlier. As usual, a splendid second lead in @Simon D, great support from @DP1011and @Fabien Monleau and a convoy that couldn’t be stopped. The so called triangle looks a bit like this: vs the planned route: Considering the fact we covered 52kms in some areas that were very technical shows the convoy strength ! See you all soon in the sand !
Sorry @Looper I will b little bit late
Sorry i have to remove my self.Du to car issue.
Lucky people who live in Al ameerah residence. If I was one them I will never inflate my 4x4
It was a great night drive in al Yaher ( now aamerah) …..thanks to @Srikumarfor choosing the nearest spot from my house for this night adventure where I felt I am driving with sunglasses on at night as hardly could make out the height of dunes we climbing …… convoy was excellent ….. special thanks to @Zedfor taking all the bumps and bashes and clearing my path 😇…… @Asif Hussainyour exit from that bowl at night with your stock car not even with extra light in your exterra is like looking for a needle in darkness 😅….. but you made in out safely …… hope to catch up soon in dunes …..
Thanks @Gary F you were fantastic in your sand runner. Believe me initially I was looking behind at every ridge thinking that you might get crusted with your LWB, but whenever I looked back I is to find you next to me.
Thanks @JeromeFJ for another great drive in beautiful Nahel. I do love the dunes there as their formation and structure is quite unique which leads to interesting driving lines which is always great to learn. I’ve just loaded a couple of photos into the gallery as well as submitted my promotion request. See you on the next drive 👍🏻
Amazing, thank you ☺️
Hi @Patricksure ! See you at 6!
Amazing drive @JeromeFJ a great start with my new ride, really enjoyed till end especially the big bowls. I was very much in sync with LWB pajero but it seems I will need few more drives to tame the rubi. Everyone drove well with no stucks and only had few refusals. Not to mention the additional break time we got in the scorching heat ( thanks to the pop outs). Some pics posted in gallery. Have a great weekend everyone.
In a convoy that was full of IM and above drivers, you did exceptionally well to not be fazed by it. The drive indeed was at a brisk pace and that was possible due to the entire convoy.
Dear Desert Drivers, Thank you for joining the drive this morning. This area of Nahel is never disappointing, and again today we could enjoy these beautiful dunes. We had virgin sand most of the time, and could not see any other car during the whole drive. The drive was not easy though, as we went through a few high climbs, deep bowls and impressive descends. All of you managed very well as nobody got stuck despite the soft sand, and we had only a few pop-outs. The drive was very fluid, surfing from one dune to the other, and we maintained an appreciable pace of 23.2 km/h average moving speed for a total 66 km. Nathan @Stumpy Paj, thank you for the 2nd lead, you had to stop unexpectedly a few times, and for the support during the pop-out resolution. @Deepak Eswar, nice to see your new ride, you have seen the benefit of having more power in that "Blue Jeep Bowl". A few more drives and you will control it even better. @FERNANDO SYRIO, nice meeting you for the 1st time. Excellent drive for you today, managing to take the Fortuner through the obstacles. Brett @Bravoecho, our most experienced Fewbie today, you are ready for the next level. @Bjoern always a pleasure to have you in a drive. Thank you for doing your 1st drive as IM with us. You totally deserve the new level. @Naveen Raj, with a new car also, take the time to adjust to the capabilities of the Jeep, But you have already seen the potential with a perfect line in one of the high bowls today. @Mehmet Volga thanks for joining and sweeping the convoy, guiding drivers out of the refusals, always nice driving with you. If you have some photos, please share them here or in the Gallery. Enjoy the rest of the weekend !
Hi Fred, can I join this on a last minute basis? Seems that 1 out of 10 slots is available? Let me know. If not possible, it's not a problem. Thank you!
Great , great drive, night drives hit different especially when you are climbing and climbing and then you realise you are still climbing and have no idea how high you are as you you can see the floor no more.. This drive certainly felt more Fewbie ++ then Fewbie + Thanks @Srikumar for an exciting drive, @AlexM well don’t on the 2nd lead and keeping up the pace. @Asif Hussain I had fun following your xtrerra and reroutes through the night.. you got me at that crossover , when I crested.. Thanks all for the support.
We will have fun today. See all today @Frederic

@Arvind Uchil thanks i will add you back to the drive, and check why your profile is not showing the same
Good morning @Frederic unfortunately my car won’t make it out of the shop in time 😔 You guys enjoy.
Good morning @GauravSoni much as I tired, car still won’t make it out of the shop in time 😔 You guys enjoy.
Hi @GauravSoni the night drive finished at 3am, so after 5 hrs driving + 50 litres of petrol, both the car and driver felt 2 hrs of sleep won't be enough 😅 . Until next time bro, will take a rain check for today and i've removed myself from the list
Bjoern has been promoted to Intermediate level
Looper replied to Gaurav's topic in Off-Road Club's AnnouncementsCongratulations @Bjoern on your promotion. A deserving one. Enjoy your new levels
Please note I was a newbie. Now I am fewbie as i was promoted after the first drive. I have confirmation and proof. Please check.
@Arvind Uchil I did post earlier that unfortunately you are still a Newbie, this means that you cannot join a Fewbie or above drive. You can only join drives at or below your current rank. So at the moment you can only join Newbie drives. Therefore, I am unable to add you to this drive as it is Fewbie and above. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
