Absolute Newbie / Newbie Drive 18 Jan 2019

Recommended Posts

With the season in full swing and amazing cool weather it's time to have another absolute newbie or newbie level drive. All first timer absolute newbie will be given a proper introduction of sand off-roading before they start, from seasoned offroaders having over decades of UAE offroad experience. Idea is to make an absolute newbie comfortable with sand off-roading and in some of the most approachable set of sand dunes in Tawi Nizwa side. It's a perfect drive for people aspiring to start dune bashing or offroading in the sand as a new hobby and wish to explore the UAE offroad, natural beauty and unleash the hidden power of your 4x4 vehicle. For newbies, it's a perfect drive to learn more and advance to fewbie level and start enjoying more advance level drives as per your offroad grades. All experienced members are requested to join in helping newbies by imparting their off-road expertise.

6 months seems very very young to me. You know we are going to cross dunes, right ? @Rahimdad ?

i am newly joined to this group..it is my first time.. i have 6months old kid.. is it safe to bring him to drive.. 

Hi Sandeep, welcome to carnity offroad club and good you asked such question beforehand.

Although newbie desert drives are very safe and involve no much dune bashing other than crossing the dunes straight up and down, but such young passenger might be uncomfortable for long hours in their baby seat.

Secondly, why don't you join first and learn the desert basics and then judge by yourself if it's gonna be comfortable for your kid or not for next drive?

      Since Ramadan we have stuck with the formula of having night drives to enjoy the absence of the sun while temperatures also become bearable by early morning before the sun rise. Time to break the fast and have a drive by day time. I'm pleased to announce the upcoming drive on 18th Aug, Friday late afternoon to let our team test our rides in the late afternoon hours. After seeing the level of all our members rise consistently this drive is not going to be as challenging compared to any of our previous drives and we will be welcoming any new comers to add to their new experience. The beauty of this area, the wide open dunes, and with the occasional sighting of wildlife like gazelles and oryx are all reasons to set your pulses racing. The plan would be to meet up at 4:30 pm as per the below link and than head out to have some awesome fun through terrain that will leave you wanting more, and we will end it with a good spot to sit around and have a BBQ session with chats about the drive, general talk and share some jokes.
      When : 18 August 2017 at 4:30 pm
      Where : First Emarat Petrol station on Dubai - Al Ain Road after Outlet Mall.
      GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/KD4Lath3cB42
      Level of drive: Newbie/Fewbie any level, just be prepared to have a relaxed drive and enjoy the BBQ
      Plan: Drive followed by BBQ
      What to bring along: Stuff for BBQ like grill, charcoal, lighter fluid and BBQ meat or chicken, water, liquids, smiles, stories, enthusiasm and willingness to learn.
      Approximate finish time : 10 pm
      Note : Drive level can be changed if required to suit the level of the convoy.
