  1. Yesterday
  2. Hi everyone! Fellow motorcyle adventurer turned 4-wheeler adapting to my new life in UAE, and loving it so far. Very excited to grow and learn as much as possible about the desert. I am a very passionate person and seriously dedicated when there is motivation, which I see there is a lot of here. I have done some basic desert offroading, so not totally new to sand, and I have experienced a few challenging recoveries I could solve successfully. Looking forward to digging in all the way (pun not intended)! I drive a Wrangler that looks like it was made for El Chapo or something. Hope to see you all very soon!
  3. Dear Sand Sailors Thanks for RSVPing for the drive. Believe @Simon D has already summed up how fast the slots went through - really appreciate the response and i am hoping we will be as swift during the drive as well A drive in Sweihan has been long overdue for me and i am really looking forward to explore the magnificent dunes of this beautiful area, Surely couldnt have asked for a stronger convoy and especially with the company of Lord of adrenaline pumping drives @Hisham Masaad, we are in for some amazing fun. With 5 days to go for this drive, lets get to the business.. This terrain is going to demand some clear ground rules and preparation. So, lets be sure about the same before we land up at meeting point on Saturday. a.) This area demands exceptional Radio communication skills. One miss communication and the whole convoy can be stuck for a long haul. So, please make sure you are very comfortable managing radio. 1. No Radio = No Drive. 2. No sufficient battery in radio = No drive 3. Missed communication and we might have to exit the driver. I am sure you all appreciate that safety is paramount. b.) Unless fully convinced about yours and your vehicle's climbing ability, avoid passengers for this drive. Keep the vehicle light and your mind free of any distractions. I can assure you, this is not a drive which passengers will cherish. c.) Please make sure your vehicle is in perfect shape. You will need all the power that it possess through this drive. d.) Ensure you have all your off-roading gears in perfect condition. e.) Coming back after a long break from sand - in general my advice is always to go for FB+ or FB drive, before going ahead for Int. drive. Ofcourse, this is just a recommendation based on experience. f.) Above all, please ensure that you are fully rested for the drive. So, plan all parties for Saturday night. Another, key element - We have 9 drivers on WL, so please ensure that if your plan changes or you are not sure about your plans, please update the RSVP well in time - lets ensure we don't lose a slot while we have a long WL.. Thanks for your understanding. Thanks again for your response. Looking forward to see you all on Saturday. @Gertjan @Waqas Parvez @ASAD. @Vaibhav @Imran Kashif @MMansoor @Naveen Raj @Sunil Mathew @Ranjan Das @Beide Worku WL (not in any order) - @Gerrit Bus @Mohamad Anwer @Simon D @Archibald Jurdi @Ashutosh Garg @Karthikeyan Govindarajan @Tareq Al Turq @Chris Wing @Alexanderrr
  4. Hi. Ben here. 2005 Tj Wrangler. Manual, 30in tyres and mild lift. Otherwise stock. No previous offroad experience. I don't currently have any of the required equipment, but plan to pick up things this week. Do you have recommendations?

This gave me the idea of a Star Trek series, which took place toward the end of 2022. It's now time to return to this universe of stars and voyage through their sandy slopes. This time the goal will be to explore the higher reaches of this star dune's paradise, attempting to climb more than 1,220 meters from one of the previous Star Treks.
