Hello @Humayun Ghias. I saw you signed in for this drive. However, since it's an Intermediate and above, and you are currently ranked at Fewbie Plus, I will have to take you off the drive. I am sure you'll understand, and hope to see you soon. Thanks.

@Humayun Ghias has been promoted to IM, but his username wasn't reflecting that. Just fixed it.

And added him back to the drive calendar.

Dear Desertnauts,

just a short introduction to next Saturday's drive. To paraphrase the great Winston Churchill "We know it will be hard; we expect it to be long; we cannot predict or measure its episodes or its tribulations. But one thing is certain: we shall continue steadfast in faith and duty till our task is done." 

Let's this set the tone for the drive: long, hard, and steadfast. As you can see from the attached screenshot of the planned track, we'll circumnavigate, better yet, we'll orbit Solar Park, past and new developments, in a clockwise direction, East to Lisaili, South to Murqab, West to Faqa and back North through Qudra's southern reaches. The drive should last at least 4 hours. It will require concentration, precision, skills, patience, and commitment. The less mistakes we'll make the more we'll drive, and the sooner we'll finish. Yet, there will be no hurry: we'll proceed deliberately, and undeterred!

No need to drag the pre-drive briefing on. Convoy order will be announced on Friday afternoon. Radio frequency will be picked at the meeting point. 

@Rob H, @Amir Amiri, @Russ, @Matt.T, @Looper, @GauravSoni, @Humayun Ghias, @Chinthaka Ruwan, @Alain Canivet-Abikhalil, @Ranjan Das, get ready, and see you all on Saturday morning.
