Noted my dear, sorry for that. I actually go to the gym daily at 6.30 pm & hence told my daughter for both - either/or.

Unknowingly, she did both & told me when I got home. Precisely, I told her the same thing.

I’m not in for the afternoon one. Apologies for the goof up.

Hi all! Really enjoyed the technical aspects of the last newbie drive with @Frederic so I am already really looking forward to this drive. This will be my 5th drive with Carnity and I would love to advance to Fewbie as soon as possible, is there anything we can do/learn on this drive that might help? Thanks, Jon M

Hi @Jon M i am glad to hear you like the technical aspects involved in the drive. As you will notice we try to make every drive a bit different, and every trip lead has his own flavor of doing things. Once you have completed your 5 Newbie level drives you can apply for the online promotion to Fewbie level by clicking below banner:

Also have a look at the grading structure we have implemented to ensure every member can understand the transparent system we have put in place, and to create a road map.

In short, Newbie level drives will make you feel comfortable in sand driving, while Fewbie level is more focused on a bit higher pace, different dune approaches, and to learn more on self-recovery. Intermediate level drives are again bumping up the level and will involve learning to recover others. From that moment on your cooperation and helping out others in the drives will be essential for further growth and will distinguish you as a "complete" offroader.
