I almost did not make it to this due to the short notice as I had already some commitments for the afternoon.

Luckily I was able to move them for the morning before the afternoon drive. Unfortunately I won't be able to join the morning drive, sorry @Rahimdad.

It’s been lingering on for weeks. But nothing serious though. My yearly dose of ear and throat infections probably. See you guys soon back in the sandbox !

      With the weather getting better with each upcoming week, the mood is set for an Absolute Newbie Drive. However if no absolute newbies sign up we might up the level depending on the convoy signed up. This time we will drive in Pink Rock area that offers perfect opportunity to learn in very safe and easy tracks to medium rolling dunes. Looking for an easy relaxing drive for everyone with plenty of opportunities to learn and grow, hill climb, and ridge riding. Newbies and Fewbies will have a great chance to see and learn the real fun that off-roading offers in a very safe and organized environment.
      Since timing will be crucial I request everyone to be on time.

      As the summer heat is in full form, our night drive is the only escape to enjoy the good breeze and pleasant weather in the desert (fingers crossed). This time we are heading to our much-loved sandbox of Pink Rock in Tawi Nazwa area. If time permit and convoy response are favorable, we might continue to Bidayer, if not then we will end at 2nd Dec cafeteria for easy 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.
      Offroad lights are recommended for a night drive, but if you don't have you can still safely drive with your HIGH BEAM.
