Thanks @Kailas for the beautiful drive! And thanks for the opportunity to support.  The magnificent dunes of Sweihan never cease to amaze me! It’s always sheer pleasure to drive on this terrain..

Kindly excuse me if I made any suggestions for recovery. I won't be doing that unless called for as I'm not fit for that role. 

Thanks @Gaurav Sonifor suggestion on fan for my car. It was fun driving with you and Kailash. see u in next drive
