We drove to Al Qua'a desert to shoot the Milkyway. That region of the desert is almost with zero light pollution and hence a very good location to do night 

photography. The area is surrounded by beautiful dunes very photographic.

Al quaa desert is one of the best desert in the UAE that connects from Al Wagan to Al Quaa.

We recently had an amazing crossing from Al Wagan most tempting dunes to Al Quaa desert, where we have witnessed the massive bowls, something like Liwa tall dunes of 150-200 meter in size.

In one of the massive bowl in Al Quaa I went inside to do a sidey and got down to the base filled with bushes and no run-up to gain momentum faced massive difficulty to get out. It was an unforgettable memory for me and others to get my car out with 30 meters of rope + 30 meters of the winch rope from last quarter of that massive bowl.

Anyone wish to repeat this, must look out for the drive to al quaa desert shortly

      Dear Carnity Offroaders,
      With the successful growth of the Carnity Offroad club we are now frequently having several convoys driving in the same area. Due to the fact that we were still working on one single frequency, this caused sometimes confusion and interference between convoys. 
      Because of that, we have decided to add 4 new frequencies to our list, and to use the exisiting freqency 462.8875 Mhz only as backup purpose. 
      A comprehensive explanation can be found below, and also shows the frequencies and tutorial on how to program them in your radio.  Please familiarize yourself with your radio and try programming the channels at home. If in doubt you can approach us before briefing time so we have time to assist you in setting up your radio.
