@Gaurav very well said. I would like to add to it. by thinking that the desert is a huge airport and all the senior members and marshals are the air traffic controller they can see you from where we can't see them with their eagle eyes and the radio commands are to make sure the aircrafts its pilots and passengers safety (cars drivers and passengers). We should assume the duty of a pilot by strictly adhering to the commands of our air traffic controller (senior members) to avoid accidents and hazards and similar to pilot you gain driving hours and experience instead of flying hours 🤩

And always appreciate the marshals and crew efforts . They work and think tirelessly on how to make it worth our while in the same time keeping safety and well-being of everyone involved in the convoy. I know a blank thank you just won't cut it but still thank you for keeping up with our f ups... especially mines they are usually unique...😎

      Positioning is very important and then the tug intensity - gradual to constant pull than jerking that may result in flip instantly.
      Well done @Emmanuel
      Key things for every offroader to notice and learn here:
      Tried self recovering first to the max. Clear sand from front tires on both sides. Identify a safe spot to recover with least force - Front and left side. Position car with utmost precision to deliver just a minimal tug at right angle. Stuck 4x4 wheels pointing left to support the recovery process by using engine power. Started with a soft tug and then applied a pulling strength and not a jerk to cause a flip.

      As the weather begin to change for good, this might be the last night drive to enjoy this year, as now in night weather has become very pleasant with cool breeze. Time to enjoy chilled out desert drive in our much loved Mahafiz sandbox till the morning. If time permit and convoy response are favorable, we might continue play in morning at monster dunes after fossil rock area, if not we will end and 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 and capabilities.
      Offroad lights are recommended for a night drive, but if you don't have you can still safely drive with your HIGH BEAM.
      When: 08 Aug 2019, Thursday
      Meeting time: 11 PM, the convoy will move at sharp 11:15 PM - "NO EXCEPTIONS"
      Where: ADNOC at Sharjah - Kalba Road
      GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/CjXEpdPqn3NZ7Y8j7
      Level: Newbie, Fewbie & Above (NO ABSOLUTE NEWBIE PLEASE)
      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 4 am and then break for snacks.
      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: 5:00 AM
