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.

When: 20 June 2019, Thursday

Meeting time: 10 PM, the convoy will move at sharp 10:15 PM

Where: Tawi Nazwa Shops

GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/4U9z5Q9HdesX3UU59

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 3 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: 4:00 AM

After initially having thought that the wobbly driving and clunking noise was only coming from my front shocks, now i found out that my right trailing arm bushing is completely gone. When letting go of the throttle the car wobbles from left to right like crazy, which probably means the rear axle is sitting loose for the moment 😤.

i will need to cancel out for this drive guys, I don’t want to take any risks and will leave the car at home until this is solved. Currently waiting for estimates on front shocks and trailer arm bushings but no update yet. 

@shadow79 I suppose you don’t have those parts available in Ajman ? 

My workshop is currently a bit overloaded and the owner is out of the country.

Hi  @MansourZ I saw your signup for today's drive, can you please share your offroad experience and which 4x4 you drive?

If you are absolute newbie in desert and this will be your first drive, then I will request you to wait for absolute newbie drive as night drives are not meant for absolute newbie experience.

      Sweihan dunes also regarded as "Little Liwa" by some and offers plenty of opportunities to test our desert driving skills by climbing sideways, ridge riding, ridge cutting and to climb huge dunes to its peak and capture some stunning pictures. As the weather is still hot, its best to start off at the onset of sunrise and have a good 3 hours of fast paced drive through some of the most amazing dunes that UAE has to offer.

      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.
