With the Pathy on it's feet and seems ready for action, what better place to test it then Al Qudra Desert just behind the Qudra lakes and all the way to the Solar park and exit.

Where: Al Qudra parking

GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/7zhLC3Mw6iXuiJLy9

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 4 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: 5:00 am

WOW what an amazing well edited, so quick video. Good surprise to wake up with.

Well done with good shot selection and peppy music, loved it.

Next time upload on Youtube as embedding video here might not work for all users.

Problem with uploading to YouTube is it might get taken down due to copyright issues on the audio track. I have faced this issue before as well.

Trip Report. So we all gathered at the meeting point. One look at the participants and the thought of a newbie drive was out, it had to be a Fewbie drive. All agreed and we were off to the deflation point after a quick brief. After deflation and a quick word from @Gaurav bhai we were off.

With me in lead, @G.huz in second lead did an amazing job to keep the convoy safe at all times. @shadow79 was third and made alternate routes to make it manageable whenever I found myself in any trouble. @Emmanuel kept busy in the middle, while @Shamil was closely following and @Gaurav bhai in sweep.

The terrain is always pleasurable but challenging with some soft white sand. Some very smooth surface, and some really sharp ridges to cross. We had our bit of adventure with a few refusals and stucks, but all well managed. Finally a pop-out which once again gave me a bit of a chance to catch a little sleep which helped me a lot.

Finally after a tough but pleasurable drive we settled down for some tea and snacks. Everybody got some really delicious treats, but it was @Gaurav bhai turn to tell us some awesome stories. Loved this side of him. After pack up we headed out, inflated and headed home. Overall well timed drive with great company and loved the night out with like minded people. Until next time adios amigos.
