Welcome to Carnity Offroad Club @Maria Rodas ! 

I am delighted to see husband and wife both hitting the sand and starting the adventure. No doubt that @Daniel Rodas now comes home with lots of stories and sand in his socks. Soon you will be doing the same :)

To get you accustomed to the basics, please watch the Absolute Newbie video briefing a few times this week, this will serve as a good preparation and introduction to what you can expect.

Good morning @Gaurav& @Frederic, thanks for the welcome!

is there a chance to organize a Saturday Absolute newbie drive? As I am mainly available on Saturdays. Please….

I have driven before with other groups and the next drive will be my 4th drive. I think I’ll benefit more on the structured way of learning as those 3 drives I’ve had, conquered Pyramid and pink rock in Badayer.

Looking forward for your advice.

Many thanks

Hi @JAISROCK, welcome to Carnity Offroad Club !

The Absolute Newbie drive is only on Fridays for now. Once you have completed this one, you can signup for a Newbie drive. At the end of that Newbie drive you can also submit a request for promotion to Fewbie level, with details of your previous 5 drives so we can take those into account.
