Dear Friends

Meeting point is updated in the drive thread and the event calendar.

We will try to cover as much as possible in this fantastic area and head towards Nahel.

Please make sure you (well rested) and your cars (well prepped) are in the best of their conditions as we might be pushing hard at some places - hard doesn't mean long climbs and big bowls, can be small super-soft dunes at places where your driving skills might be tested. 

Convoy list will be updated soon. Always feels exciting to drive in Sweihan

are we starting the drive at 6h30 because it is a long drive from Dubai to Abu Dhabi, and because we deserve extra sleeping time on Friday and also because the nice weather allows for a slightly delayed start? :) :) Just Joking.. well not really :)  @Chaitanya D

Agree , for members from Dubai and especially sharjah you might have to leave 30 min early than regular times. 

Still its early days into winter and gets warmish by 10. Hence the start at 6 am
