Thanks for signing up for the drive. As explained in the drive post, Area 53 can be the one of the most wonderful as well as most difficult areas for Fewbie level drives. This area has got it all - a whole lot of tall dunes, sharp drops, pyramids dunes, rolling dunes soft sand, etc.

Our plan is to visit as much of the pyramid and rolling dunes that time would permit and try to reach Iftar bowl before it gets too hot. For those of you who are wondering why a sand dune bowl in the middle of the desert is given a strange name as Iftar Bowl; that is because in pre-COVID era (seems like ages ago) on the 3rd Friday of Ramadan month all the offroad clubs in UAE would gather at the base of Iftar Bowl in the evening and the fasting members would break their fast. It has been an offroading tradition for more than 15 - 20 years and it was always wonderful to see as many 200 - 300 cars at the same time. Hopefully we would have the opportunity to relive this tradition during the next Ramadan. In the meanwhile, we will make do with what we can and keep practice playing on these amazing rolling dunes.

If any one feels that they have hardly used their shovels so far and that its getting rusted, Area 53 is the perfect place to put them to very good use.

Me and @Hisham Masaad look forward to driving with you all this Friday, and hopefully we overcome the challenge of Area 53 as a team.

Would recommend @Aisha S to make some exercise before Friday. Remove the shovel, shovel some sand next to your house and refix again. Make this few times, so you are ready😀😀. Hope you won't use it and others as well

First time with @Srikumar and first time in Area 53. I was under the impression that Area 53, Super bowl, Iftar bowl etc were strictly FB+ and IM territory. Was surprised to see Area 53 in an FB ride..so didnt want to miss the chance, and ended up as the first sign up 😀👍

Looking forward to it and 🤞🤞🤞
