Hi @Chris Maycroft

Great to see you signed up for the Carnity Absolute Newbie drive on Friday 2nd. We are looking forward to meeting you. 

We ask everyone that signs up here to answer a few quick questions so we can plan better for the drive and make sure that no-one is disappointed by arriving and not being allowed to drive: 

  1. Do you bring any 4x4 experience with you to the drive? If so what did you already do? 
  2. Does your car have any modifications? Do any of these impact the off-road requirements of 8 - 10 inch clearance, tow hooks front & rear, 4 wheel drive
  3. What do you want to achieve in joining the club? 

Thanks in advance and looking forward to meeting you Friday.

Hey. No real experience - although I actually went up to al qudra at the weekend with a friend (having read a lot of material online) and had a go at deflating the tyres and driving on the sand and on some small dunes. Apart from that I’m a complete newbie. Really just keen to get into it so I can do some more scenic drives (I really want to go upto fossil rock!). 
I have a Pajero which has 4 wheel drive  - completely standard with no modifications. I haven’t measured the clearance but I am 99.9% certain it has at least 10inch clearance (I will check tonight though). 
I think I’ve got enough gear for now (compressor, tow rope, flag with suction cup, shovel, tyre deflator tools and pressure gauge). I don’t have a walkie talkie yet though. Do I need this for Friday?

looking forward to meeting on Friday!

Hello @Wrangeld,

This will be my 2nd Ride with Carnity. I have previously been on an Absolute Newbie ride earlier this month.
I have a Nissan Pathfinder R51 2008 model with a 2 Inch Lift Kit. I have a radio, Flag, Deflator Kit and a Compressor for now along with a D shackle at the rear.
About my experience all I can say is that I am still Learning. I hope this helps.

Thanks.

Hi Vikas, 

The absolute Newbie drive is for people that have never driven before with Carnity. Can I ask you please to sign out of this drive and join one of the other newbie drives that will be taking place on Friday 

This one still has space on it. Morning Newbie Desert Drive - Tawi Nizwa - Sharjah - 2 July 2021 - Events Calendar - Carnity.com

From the feedback I got, there is no reason for you to repeat the absolute newbie drive.

Sorry about this @Wrangeld

To be honest I wasn't aware of how the system works. I will sign out as requested from this one.

Thanks

Hi @Wrangeld

I have a fare amount of experience off-roading in other conditions and driving sand tracks. Recently purchased a Pajero 3.8 SWB and added front and rear skid plates. Joining the club to gain more confidence in the desert and explore with like minded people.

Looking forward to the drive.

Hi. 
I’ve been to desert & sandy island before but few times only. For sure, stuck and self-recovered. Had fun but never went far into the desert. 
Recently I bought a brand new significantly less powerful car - montero sport 3.0. It’s stock and has all the required features. i’m joining the club to have fun safely and learn something. Thanks!
