Intermediate Morning Drive in Sweihan - 16th Aug 2019

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.

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 😂

Been doing morning drives during the summer, it doesn't get hot until around 10-11 am.

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.
