Good effort. I remembered my car touched during first drive. Fortunately, I had comprehensive off-road package and other party was very understanding. These are possibilities and I accept it and pay full attention on not to repeat same mistake and careful while judging the sand.

@Gaurav well written and covered a lot of very important points

I feel it would also be good to mention who is primarly responsibile in the event that a tow rope, jack or any tools breaks /bends while helping other members.

wouldn't it be better to make a Carnity off road rescue box and put in it all the essentials in it which would be with the one who is really regular in the drives and contribution should be from all members who join the drives that way it won't be heavy on one guy and we all can enjoy the benefits...

@shadow79 there is a reason for each one carrying their own equipment and having one set of equipment will not be sufficient. Imagine in a convoy of over 20 cars if one person carrying this box has to approach the effected car every time. Also if one rope is used for a hard pull with 3 to 4 attempts it cannot be used again for recovery on the same trip. If the equipment gives up, breaks or bends we do not have anybody to rely on. Whatever the suggestions given are not here to burden anyone, if you're an off roader or aspire to be one, than all equipment is necessary for everyone who wants to be regular.

Thanks @Srikumar for the suggestion, I have added off road gear and mechanical failure points on the above post.

@shadow79 surprise to hear your "so not practical" suggestion after driving with us for so long time.

      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.

      After many nice areas, its due time to visit Shuwaib. It's a very challenging area that has a great mix and twist of technical dunes of small, medium and large sizes. Everything in Shuwaib is gonna keep you awake and require your constant focus and instant reaction. The plan is to enter from Al-Shuwaib side and to exit from Iftar bowl after having a good fill at Super Bowl to Iftar Bowl stretch that offers most amazing tall but rolling dunes.
