Drive Report: Always a pleasure to welcome new members into this amazing club - and considering the few sign ups and a smallish convoy I was sure we were going to have a fantastic time out

Dear friends @Juzer Talib @Prakash Anoop @Bharath Rao @Praveen Raj Rajan @Shynil Hashim looks like we will have a nice little convoy of 7 cars including myself and @Islam

Thank you, and yes there is  rear tow point and front one as well which is never been used, the rear one was used once when I was stuck in half desert so that's also fine. Attaching the picture for re

Dear friends

@Juzer Talib

@Prakash Anoop

@Bharath Rao

@Praveen Raj Rajan

@Shynil Hashim

looks like we will have a nice little convoy of 7 cars including myself and @Islam Soliman. We will wait till RSVP closing time if there are more signups. For desert drives short convoy is always more fun.

Please make sure your cars are in the best of conditions,  all fluids checked . Come well rested for a fresh start and get acquainted being on sands - for some probably first time. Please make sure you have gone through the newbie video briefing in the drive thread, read and click totally agree on the covid precautions for this drive.

Bring along the off road gears if you have - radios, compressor, deflator , flag and a pole, shovel. These are not a must for Absolute Newbie drive. Bear in mind the air compressor at the gas station in last exit-qudra is super slow and most of the times under repair. Hence the least would be to bring your own compressor.

See you all on friday morning as scheduled . Please arrive on time with a tank as full as possible, the nearest gas station is at the last exit in Qudra.
