This is a really worthwhile drive for any vehicle, however for me driving a larger vehicle it has been "mission critical" to start to learn and appreciate the intricacies of technical dunes, sometimes

How good was that? Thank you all for attending today, also appreciate all of you being ready on time, it does make a big difference.  We had a mix of some more experienced newbies and fewbies, as

@qaiser ijaz I note you did not yet complete the Absolute newbie drive. You may want to consider carefully if a technical skills drive is your next Carnity outing because the drive is designed to hone skills that are in development. Having said that you have an outstanding choice of vehicle for this type of drive ... :-) so plese confirm the AN is complete and then you can join.

The weekend draws inexorably closer and with it the chance for excitement on this special Saturday drive to hone your technical skills in the dunes of Qudra. 

With a convoy of 11 plus the excellent support of @GauravSoni and @Alex Raptor it's a long convoy, so we will play around a bit with numbering and challenges so that those at the back are not always the ones fighting the soft sand and tough conditions. 

Bring your A game to the desert, however. As I said before, technical is a challenge that can overwhelm - and we don't want that - because once you're in a technical area, there's no magic wand we can use to magically get your car out of the dunes. But you all knew that before you signed up for this. 

@GauravSoni jokes that he is bringing lunch and dinner with him: if you have plans for Saturday that are essential and you cannot be late, while we will try to get out by 10am, on this type of drive there is a high likelihood that we finish late. 

See you soon in the sand.

@Wrangeld I will be taking my first ride on Friday. And I have taken one technical ride before with other group. And I don't want to miss this.

Dear Magnificent Seven

Delighted to welcome you to the technical skills drive planned for Friday Saturday. I will be supported by two of our most experienced drivers, meaning we can give some close attention to all attending, and we will have vehicles in the seniors that have the same sort of dynamics as the vehicles on the drive:
 
 I have an SWB Pajero  - not quite a jeep, but similar. 
@GauravSoni has a LWB Pajero - not quite an LWB Jeep but close enough
@Alex Raptor has a Ford 150 Raptor - same in scale as a Y62

The plan is to find some technical dunes in the Qudra area and spend a good few hours practicing driving through these difficult patches of dunes. We will get stuck - so you will get the added benefit of being able to practice endless self recovery!

Hi Wrangled,

Thank you so much. Looking forward to the drive and awaiting the meeting point.
