Post Drive Report It's gratifying when the report given by experienced drivers having seen our convoy was 'you were covering some challenging dune ranges' today. I did not need that as validation

As it's your first drive, and you are coming from AD (no newbies this week) I will open up a slot for you and add you to the drive. 

Please see below the changed convoy list after changes during today.  The convoy is bigger than planned - but we will make it work.  See you in the morning.  @FARAZ MOHAMMED @Alex

Congratulations, you successfully signed up for the Newbie Murauab drive on Friday. 

Myself and @Lorenzo Candelpergher will be delighted to see you and we look forward to a fun and exhilarating drive together, supported by @Veedooshee

Our plan is to see if we can take a Newbie convoy all the way from Murquab through to Last Exit. That's a challenge even for more experienced drivers, so we will see how far we can get in that plan. It's always good to set expectations high, but accept that it might not end up the way we planned; perhaps that can be the motto for Off Roading. 

If anyone is a doubt for the drive, please sign out early. We already have a waitlist for the drive and if you cannot come, it's a shame to deny the chance to someone else. 

For me, one of the exciting things about this drive is the chance to meet so many new faces with whom I never drove before and the chance to see the develpment of one or two where I led their absolute newbie. 

Expect all your newly learned skills to be challenged on this drive. We will have a few descents, some baja running, a little technical section and some big wide dunes on which to play - basically, this drive has it all. 

See you soon in the sand.

Wednesday midday is closing time for this drive - so you are the lucky ones that will enjoy the Murquab experience on Friday morning. 

There is a waitlist, so if anything has changed in your plans: please sign out and give another driver the chance. 

Otherwise, tomorrow you will see the proposed convoy for the drive and the radio channel will be set. 

See you soon in the sand.
