Recommended Posts

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. 

When: 4 Oct 2019, Friday
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
What to bring along: Snacks - whatever you like with little extra to share, water, smiles, stories, and enthusiasm.

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.

      Due to the shortage of time last week, there was some unfinished business on the dunes south of the MBR Solar Panels. So lets attempt to reach there this time starting from Al Faqa. The area provides long range dunes that offer a perfect playground to ramp up the pace a bit and stretch the legs of both car and driver.  We will explore the area, and alternate between side sloping, ridge crossing, and enjoy whatever this area has to offer.
      This drive is for Fewbie and above level only.  
      When: 24 January 2020, Friday
      Meeting time: 06:45 AM, the convoy will move sharply at 07:00 AM
      Where: Al Faqa
      GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/dt57TRJ3ak4SrCkX8
      Level of drive: Fewbie and above
      Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 10 inches of ground clearance.
      Plan: Drive and enjoy until about 12 PM, with some small breaks in between to have breakfast and snacks.
      What to bring along: Some snacks, plenty of water - whatever you like with little extra to share, smiles, stories, enthusiasm and willingness to learn.
      Approximate finish time: 12 PM

      Lets have a slight different kind of challenge in the Qudra Area. This area is famous for its white sand and will offer a good mix of playable dunes, technical dunes to test your car control. Depending on the convoy level and participation, we might have a quick fewbie level drive after the newbie drive.

      Meeting time: 6:45 AM, convoy will move at sharp 7:00 AM
