With the official end of the summer season, we plan to restart having two drives a day. And what better way then to up the pace at Al Faqa desert which is famous for its long range tall dunes that are fun to drive at good pace for ridge riding, side sloping that would test your offroad skills. The drive is for Intermediates and above only.  Plan is to start at sunrise and drive till about 10:30 AM or even a bit more weather permitting.

Meeting time: 05:30 AM,
 the convoy will move sharply at 05:45 AM
Where: Al Faqa Desert

GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/dt57TRJ3ak4SrCkX8

Level of drive: Intermediate and above
Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 10 inches of ground clearance.
Plan: Drive and enjoy from 5:45 AM till about 10:30 AM

From a safety perspective for any drive there should be minimum of 3 cars. So let's wait to see if the required participation is there by Thursday morning and then decide.

Due to the limited participation not meeting the minimum car requirement, the drive has been cancelled. @Javier M you can join the Newbie drive if you wish.

@MATHEW FELEX I think by mistake you signed in the Intermediate drive, please sign in the newbie drive.

Also Sri has cancelled that Intermediate drive due to limited participation from Intermediate and above level offroaders.
