Intermediate Morning Drive in Sweihan - 16th Aug 2019

Recommended Posts

Sweihan dunes also regarded as "Little Liwa" by some 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. 

This drive is for Intermediate & above level

Meeting time: 4:45 AM, Convoy will move sharp at 5:00 AM

Level of drive: Intermediate & Above

What to bring along: Snacks, Quick Breakfast whatever you like with little extra to share, water, liquids, smiles, stories, enthusiasm and willingness to learn. 

Approximate Finish Time: 9:00 AM on 16th August 2019, Friday

I’m currently exploring beautiful Sri Lanka (not off-roading) and will be back end of the month. 

Missing you guys, and the sand between my toes 😂

Hopefully not, as Sri has done tremendous research and bribe the heat god to only wake up after 9

Or maybe after his weather observations and scientific analysis that night at the tip of the Fossil Rock, when the breeze only started at around 4 am 😂

That's why I have kept an extra one hour and we are starting at 5 am just to be on safe side. 😁

We know that too, and Sri plan to exit by 9 to keep an hour as a buffer till 10 AM for any extreme recoveries or problems.

Depending on the situation and actual heat in sand we might play around till 10 AM.

      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 the last week Fewbie+ to Intermediate level, it's time to have a chilled out and relaxing desert drive in this hot and humid summer. This time we are changing the area to a different route to start from end of Awir and reach the Mahafiz area through desert. You got it right, that we will start from Dubai and end in Sharjah from a desert route enjoying all the dunes on our way.
      This area is filled with very broad dunes that are easy to climb and exit, perfect for any newbie to get the hang of desert driving with a pinch of dune bashing. If the convoy response is good we will play in the nearby area at a fewbie level to push the spirit and fun few notches, nothing extreme.
      Offroad lights are recommended for a night drive, but if you don't have you can still safely drive with your HIGH BEAM.

      Superman is back from his vacation and invites all intermediate level drivers to sign up for this drive. It is going to be fast paced, fun and full of thrills as I have been missing in action for the past 3 weeks.
      Area 53 is the most versatile area in the UAE offroading scene, that offers beautiful tall rolling dunes with plenty of opportunities for side slopping, ridge cutting, and long hill climbs.
      Any Fewbie who have already had 15 or more drives is also welcome to join. We may promote few fewbie drivers to Intermediate level after this drive, if there driving skills are at par to match the pace.
      Promotions based on driving skill set is just the "one aspect" of the grading structure, they also need to follow other points:

      Level of drive: Fewbie+ and above
      When: 4 July 2019
      Meeting time: 10:00 PM, the convoy will move sharp at 10:15 PM
      Where: Badayer Shops at Nazwa, before Madam R/A
      GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/GMrTGmx4J5L2
      Plan: Night drive through the Pyramids - Area 53 - Iftar bowl - Super Bowl (maybe)
      What to bring along: Evening snacks - whatever you like with little extra to share, water, liquids, smiles, stories, and enthusiasm.
      Approximate finish time: 3 AM
