Newbie to Fewbie feedback

Recommended Posts

All the fewbie drivers are requested to share their feedback for their first fewbie drive after the promotion:

  • Have you felt the difference between the newbie and fewbie level drive?
  • How did the Newbie level briefing and training help you to develop your skill sets for the Fewbie level?
  • Do you think 5 number of newbie drives was sufficient for you to be ready for fewbie level?
  • Do you think it was necessary to attend newbie drives first to gain appropriate skills and confidence? 
  • Which part (side sloping/ridge riding/crisscrossing) have you enjoyed the most in your first fewbie level drive?
  • Did you learn something new at the Fewbie level or only bettered the skills you learned at the Newbie level?
  • Any other comments you feel will help us to develop the new offroaders in a better way?

Your feedback is highly appreciated and will help us develop a stronger and better offroad club.

My first fewbie drive was 2 weeks ago(26th Apr) which was led by @Gaurav. It was a real test for me as I wanted to see for myself, if I had what it took to deserve this newly earned title. When the drive kicked off, I was a bit nervous, because I was not sure if I could keep up. But as we progressed, I realized that this is definitely next level stuff but doable nonetheless. I did get stuck once whereby I had to be recovered and I realized that was due to lack of momentum during the climb. The highlight of the trip was a side slope which I managed to pull off which led to a great feeling of achievement.

Towards the end of the drive, we were at the pink rocks and I attempted a long climb, but however during the run up, I came across a few bumps which affected the momentum and half way through the climb, I lost power, due to which I had to back down straight to base after which I didn’t attempt again. I later realized that I should have perhaps requested @Gaurav to sit with me in my car during that climb and he would have walked me through the essential steps (Will definitely do that the next time though). All in all, it was a great drive, probably one of the best for me till date and I look forward to more drives and more challenges as I would like to climb the ranks with this amazing community and eventually become a capable off roader.

      After a long break from the Absolute Newbie Drives due to the hot weather and night drives, but with the weather getting better over the last couple of weeks I am announcing this 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 Maliha / Kalba 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 respect everyone and be on time.
      When: 6 September 2019
      Meeting time: 4:00 AM, the convoy will move at sharp 4:15 AM
      Where: Adnoc Petrol Station Maleha Road
      GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/ye28yTnTSYr
      Level: Absolute Newbie, Newbie, and Fewbie
      Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 10 inches of ground clearance.
      Plan: Drive, train and enjoy till about 8:00 AM
      What to bring along: Snacks - whatever you like with little extra to share, water, liquids, smiles, stories, enthusiasm and willingness to learn.
      Approximate finish time: 8:00 AM
      Please RSVP on the below calendar.

      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
