Looking forward to it guys! 

Would it be possible to borrow a radio from someone, by any chance? I’ll bring along a drone as my way to say thanks :-)

Thanks for the drive yesterday guys! A special thank you to Gaurav for the great tips during our several refusals, and a big thanks to everyone for their patience through them :-)

I've uploaded some drone photos and clips; I wanted to get some of the moving convoy, but that was difficult to do without asking everyone to stop, get the drone out, film, then stop again to get the drone back :-).

See you all next time!

Thanks @Rahimdad for excellent newbie drive and everyone for there great coordination, teamwork and patience that paid very well at side sloping timing (real dessert of the desert). I could see everyone was like a kid after the first attempt to have one more attempt, lol. That's the real fun for offroad that gets the adrenaline rushing for everyone.

Let the trip leader know next time in advance and we can plan such stops for drone shots.

Love your second video of capturing the side sloping attempt of the black wrangler. Perfect angle to focus straight into the action from an aerial view. 👍
