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

When: 16th August 2019, Friday 
Meeting time: 4:45 AM, Convoy will move sharp at 5:00 AM 

Meeting GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/4YP93yynZaYBuNHq7

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

Please Note, at meeting point there is no petrol station, make sure you fill your tanks on your way at nearest petrol station.

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 😂

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.

      With the weather getting better with each upcoming week, the mood is set for an Absolute Newbie Drive. However if no absolute newbies sign up we might up the level depending on the convoy signed up. This time we will drive in Pink Rock area that offers perfect opportunity to learn in very safe and easy tracks to medium rolling dunes. Looking for an easy relaxing drive for everyone with plenty of opportunities to learn and grow, hill climb, and ridge riding. Newbies and Fewbies will have a great chance to see and learn the real fun that off-roading offers in a very safe and organized environment.
      Since timing will be crucial I request everyone to be on time.

      Congratulations @Emmanuel for reaching the Marshal level with Carnity Offroad club. 
      It is one of the most prestigious and sought after title that comes with a lot of hard work, patience, tolerance, and dedication.
      Just like all the levels in Carnity offroad club is "NOT" only based on driving skills but instead based on the combination of your personality + intelligence + team spirit + adventure. This Marshal title is an epitome for all levels in the offroad grading structure.
      So if anyone wants to grow, they can set Marshal as a PERFECT example for not only following the driving style but observing their behavior, teamwork, presence of mind, calculative approach, patience and tolerance to teach and support new offroaders.
      Once again congratulations Emmanuel and best wishes for your next adventure!
