Hello again everyone and a very Happy Easter to those who celebrate. Now down to the trip report. I know waking up early morning is one of the most difficult things to do on a weekend, but for those who made it were treated to an awesome day out.

7 cars met at the Adnoc pump and sharp at 7 am we were moving on to the deflation point. It was nice cool breeze which kept us comfortable even as the sun came out. At the deflation point we had a concise briefing to make everyone aware about the etticacies of driving in the sands and our plans for the day. We had 2 absolute newbies in the group as @BENNY THOMAS and @Ren who adapted well. We started with some easy dunes with little dips and drops which was managed well by both. My backup saw @EmVarlet@sertac as the man between the 2 newbies, @skumar83 and @Gaurav as my fly sweep.

It was fun as we tried different scenarios and it was heartening to see everyone manage so well. We came to a tempting bowl and decided to play for a while as the newbies learned from the experienced to learn a thing or two. After the play time we headed to our breakfast stop which was peaceful, cleaned and a shade that was welcoming. We quickly setup the table and were soon enjoying the many treats that everybody managed.

After breakfast we packed up just as quickly as we had laid the table and were headed to our last leg the Fossil Rocks. On the way we had a couple of stucks and the sweep team managed the situations in a quick way. Soon we were all on top of Fossil Rocks and enjoying the amazing view. The real challenge was yet to come, we were going to descent from Fossil Rocks which for first timers instills fear and yet is something everybody should experience. Everyone followed the orders well and we were all down within no time with all smiles as 2 of us accomplished what seemed impossible.

It was now time to head out and inflate. Our deepest fear was the front lower lip of Jeep Grand Cherokee bumper, seeing it intact at the end was another sign of relief. As the Sun beat down and made it hot, we headed out, inflated and headed home. Once again thank you to all participants and well done to all. I loved the company of some of the most amazing people and looking forward to many more. Until next time I bid you all farewell.

      Superman is back from his vacation and invites all intermediate level drivers to sign up for this drive. It is going to be fast paced, fun and full of thrills as I have been missing in action for the past 3 weeks.
      Area 53 is the most versatile area in the UAE offroading scene, that offers beautiful tall rolling dunes with plenty of opportunities for side slopping, ridge cutting, and long hill climbs.
      Any Fewbie who have already had 15 or more drives is also welcome to join. We may promote few fewbie drivers to Intermediate level after this drive, if there driving skills are at par to match the pace.
      Promotions based on driving skill set is just the "one aspect" of the grading structure, they also need to follow other points:

      Level of drive: Fewbie+ and above
      When: 4 July 2019
      Meeting time: 10:00 PM, the convoy will move sharp at 10:15 PM
      Where: Badayer Shops at Nazwa, before Madam R/A
      GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/GMrTGmx4J5L2
      Plan: Night drive through the Pyramids - Area 53 - Iftar bowl - Super Bowl (maybe)
      What to bring along: Evening snacks - whatever you like with little extra to share, water, liquids, smiles, stories, and enthusiasm.
      Approximate finish time: 3 AM

      With a 10 years experience in off-roading I have learned from my seniors to part the knowledge I have gained from them and from my experiences so that driving in the sands is a safer bet. I have always enjoyed coming across like minded people who want to learn and step up to learn and practice driving in the sands safely. In turn the best part is that I get to learn from all the newbies every time. As a part of this growth I would like my off-roading buddys to share their experience with me so I can get better at the sport I love and can offer a more competent and complete set of training.
      I have designed the below set of questions which would help everyone to share their experience in a structured way. You may copy and paste these questions to the reply page and type out your answers from your experience. I will start by sharing my experiences with all.
      How much did you enjoy your first drive?
      What did you enjoy about the drive?
      Which part of the drive you think you enjoyed the best which you would like to repeat?
      Do you think there was a good mix of lecture and practical, was the lecture too long, and any part that can be avoided or done in a shorter or different way? Do you think anything elese could be added to the lecture?
      Do you think prior reading material would help?
      Would you know where on the Carnity forum you would be able to find the information you are looking for?
      Is there anything you think could be done in a better way?
      How do you suggest to make things better for the new comers?
      How do you think you can progress within the current atmosphere and learning opportunities provided?
      Thank you all
