Myself and @Chaitanya D are looking forward to an amazing drive on Friday. This route has such a varied selection of dunes that it's impossible not to have a great drive. 

The plan, for anyone wanting to know that sort of thing is to enter some of the playable dunes around Murquab before we venture into the technical dunes that lead to the SZS (Sheikh Zayed Sandway) and the high long dunes around Solar Park to the East of Last Exit. From there we will swing West towards Bab Al SHams and then the final drive Northwards into Las Exit. 

I'll make no bones about it, this is a challenging drive for Newbies because of the complexity of dune, the length of the drive and the need to be in full concentration though the changing type of challenge along the way. 

We estimate that taking refsuals and stucks into account, we should be able to reach Last Exit within a 4 hour drive, but if we don't, hey, we don't. The sand is a fickle master and frankly, you never know what it throws up to us. 

There's a chance we will be lucky in part of the drive because it's been really windy over the last days. This will mean that a lot of the cross tracks that have been a signature feature of drives over recent weeks will have been covered so we get the chance to drive on realtively virgin sand. 

More details to come during the week aslong with radio frequency and potentially a convoy numbering. 

If any one cannot make it, please let us know early. There is a waitlist for the drive and we really don't want to leave people on the waitlist if a driver that is signed up is not going to make it for any reason.

See you soon in the sand.

@Hardik Mody

@Dodi Syahdar

You are both still on the waitlist. As soon as we know more about waitlists in general for the weekend, I will adivse if there is a space on the drive. This can be either due to drop outs or because myself and @Chaitanya D as the marshals believe we can safely add more drivers to the convoy without risk.
