Many don’t want to go home it seems - 2 whole days? I didn’t even want to join the intermediate drive. Having said that let me try to waitlist myself or my bitter half to one more drive.

The meeting point is where we camped last year.

Welcome to the Carnity Annual Liwa Expedition.

Few key pointers (MUST READ)

  • Every car should have 100 liters of fuel in the fuel tank or with additional jerry cans.
    • If you show up at the meeting point and looking for a fuel station, that means you've missed the initial post to read and will also miss this drive, as we won't hold the convoy for 30-45 minutes.
  • This is an Fewbie Plus level drive so expect a fast-paced and action-oriented drive filled with adrenal pumping fun.
    • So make sure everything in your car - boot and passenger seat is secured, fastened, or strapped.
    • Get enough sleep in advance, to stay focused especially after 3-4 hours of drive.
  • Lighter car is better for this level drive
  • No early exit for 1 car.
    • So be yourself fully ready for an 8+ hour drive and also make sure your passenger understands that in this route there is no early exit.

DRIVE PREPARATION

To ensure that everyone has a fun and safe Liwa trip it's important that you go through the below checklist :

1. Please ensure that you are there at the meeting point at 7:30 AM sharp. Latecomers would be sent back. 

2. Firstly, get lots and lots of rest the previous day. The more the better as Liwa will not only challenge your vehicle but your mind as well. We would need your complete focus and fatigue due to less rest is the last thing that is needed on such a terrain. For those who prefer camping the previous night, you can do so at the starting point as it's a nice spaced-out area. Bring some firewood in case if you wish to have a bonfire to keep you warm. Cleaning up after the bonfire is mandatory.

3. Ensure that your 4x4 is well serviced recently and all the lubes and fluids are topped up.

4. 20 Liter / 40-liter fuel jerry can is needed depending on your vehicle. If you have any doubts, please post your query on the drive post and we will assist.

5. A full fuel tank at the meeting point.

6. Spare tire should be in good working condition. If not been used recently, ensure that you take it out and check the condition properly. Also, ensure that you have the wrench that can be used to remove your tire (if needed). In the past, we have seen that people upgrade their tires but still keep the original wrench which is of no use to remove the upgraded tire. So please ensure that your car has the right tool to remove your car tires (if needed).

7. Bring along your breakfast, lunch, snacks, etc in easy-to-eat packing. We shall be having breaks in between the drive.

8. Dry food, energy bar, cookies, nuts, crisp to munch while driving.

9. Bring garbage bags along to carry your trash. Littering in the desert is strictly prohibited.

Keep checking this list, as it might grow further in the coming days. All the above points are Mandatory and your participation on the drive would be refused on the drive day by the trip lead if you fail to comply with the above.

Special welcome thank to my manage team for joining my drive.
