LIWA Intermediate Desert Drive - 14 Feb 2020

Recommended Posts

For every off-roader going to Liwa is like a holy pilgrimage and much awaited moment to mark their off-road progress.

As much as Liwa is fun, thrilling and mind boggling with humongous dunes and vast desert, it is indeed very tricky, scary and challenging to test all your off-road skills in one drive. More than the skills and your vehicle capabilities, you need to be very sharp, calculative and attentive to understand the convoy movement with patience and level head at all times.

We plan to explore Liwa - Bu Hasa area this time and head toward Liwa Oasis direction while passing through "Tropic of Cancer" and visiting the famous "Liwa Yellow Truck" buried in Liwa Desert since so many years.

As this will be the first Liwa drive of 2020, so we aim to vet Intermediate and above level off-roaders for the second Liwa drive which is going to be more challenging and tougher around Moreeb dunes area. So, if anyone wishes to join Moreeb dune in March, please sign up for this.

As it's a 3+ hour drive from Dubai so ideally well rested body will enjoy this whole day drive without fatigue, so reaching a night before and camping or sleeping in the car at meeting point would be ideal, but completely optional for everyone.

Finally, the much awaited Liwa drive. Absolutely looking forward to it.

It seems that Emmanuel is so excited that he is already been camping in Liwa for the past 3 weeks. So that's where you have been buddy. 😁

Tell the homefront you will spend the night with your mistress called “Carnity”. The love will be there.

Time to prove, who do you love more: Sand + Liwa + Offroad + Car OR ............!

Just kidding, with so many senior members unavailability this is the best date we could find.
