Thank you Dr @Chaitanya D and @Asif Hussain Bhai & @Rizwanm2 for a wonderful drive today. It was the 3rd consecutive drive with the Dr and feels part of the team now😁 . Fayah is really becoming a favourite as there is no churned up tracks like in Swaihan and thankfully no oil exploration/ seismic studies etc  (yet). The first half was really free-flowing and the second half was a good lesson in careful driving with patience in a technical sort of terrain. The convoy drove really well considering the terrain, Special shout out to @Josh T. who was having the first FB+. Well done. @Asif Hussain bhai was a real calming effect at the back never rushing things has given me confidence to approach each obstacle at my own pace. It was a pleasure driving with all of you @Aisha S @Zed @munkybizness. See you all soon

First a photo to summarize our experience, then trip report below:

31977025-3790-4E82-B510-405FD631A1B8.jpeg.0e1b887d86dcd3543e908a369ceb7f74.jpeg

Obviously it's @Asif Hussainbhai who likes to climb these, but @Rizwanm2 also reached similar heights... these XTerra-ers are like cats when they see trees, itching to climb 😂 (btw WhatsApp me for the videos if you want since gallery doesn't accept videos anymore)

Trip Report:

We started off with a nice weather, you can even feel the sand under the feet are cold. Our dear Marshal Dr @Chaitanya D commanded that I should keep some distance, so I did... but then he ran off at 50km/h playing hide-and-seek: I could see his flag hidden behind the dunes and I keep seeking where in tracks did he go to 😅 That was a fun first-half, lots of high-paced criss-crossing and throttling-on-every-flats.

Second-half was very technical, the sand is so soft that when you park, the cars would slowly sink... some refusals and stucks, but nothing that took more than 15mins to recover.

At the end of the technical track, we were awarded with a nice play area as seen in the photo above. It's like seeing gold after shovelling dirt & sand (literally) 😁

I would like to thank our Lead Dr C who trusted me as 2nd Lead and dealt with my banters 😂 Our CF @Rizwanm2 who helped everyone who got refusals and stucks. Our Marshal Sweeper @Asif Hussain who ensured no one is left behind 👍🏻

Also fellow drivers whom I enjoyed chatting before interrupted by our strict time-keeper @Aisha S, Dubaians @munkybizness @Anoop Nair and Sweihan Boy @Josh T. , see you chaps in Liwa!
