Waiting for @skumar83 trip report, here is my point of view. Met on time at the designated area, has a quick bite and we were off to the deflation point. After deflation and a quick word for the drivers brief we were off right on top of Big Red. Accompanied by my wife who felt that @skumar83 was a bit to adventurous with a scream every here and there, I felt proud that someone within 8 months and just 30 off drives could lead so well. Only in Carnity.

@baselsm83 also managed well and kept up with what turned out to be a quick thrilling ride to Pink Rocks. At this point my wife was like she liked roller coaster rides better because she knows they get over in 2 minutes. Being early I asked if they wanted to continue to Fossil Rocks and they were all game, so started a section of off-road journey which linked the 2 areas together. This clears the air on why we call it out sand box.

The second part was almost as enjoyable and we flew at good pace to reach the Fossil Rocks at a good time after rescuing a couple of vehicles on the way. The weather was beautiful as was the company.

All in all we had the flavour of 2 drives in a day with over 50 kilometers covered off-road. My kudos to the team who keeps learning and growing in experience and confidence. Thanks @skumar83 for a wonderful day out in our beloved place.

      Sweihan dunes also regarded as "Little Liwa" by some offers plenty of opportunities to test our desert driving skills by climbing sideways, ridge riding, ridge cutting and to climb huge dunes to its peak and capture some stunning pictures. As the weather is still hot, its best to start off at the onset of sunrise and have a good 3 hours of fast paced drive through some of the most amazing dunes that UAE has to offer. 
      This drive is for Intermediate & above level

      As the weather begin to change for good, this might be the last night drive to enjoy this year, as now in night weather has become very pleasant with cool breeze. Time to enjoy chilled out desert drive in our much loved Mahafiz sandbox till the morning. If time permit and convoy response are favorable, we might continue play in morning at monster dunes after fossil rock area, if not we will end and exit.
      This area offers a great mix of playable dunes and medium dunes to test your night driving skills. Depending on convoy strength and liking will plan the route to fit everyone's taste and capabilities.
      Offroad lights are recommended for a night drive, but if you don't have you can still safely drive with your HIGH BEAM.
