What an amazing convoy today guys ! All of you took the challenges with a smile and kept coming back for more ;) 

Of course, with a skillful @GauravSoni as second lead to correct my sometimes bumpy tracks, @Mahmoud Taha , @Amr Aydin and @Pascal wonderfully digesting the terrain, and our captain @Hisham Masaad in the back to keep us safe, it was evident that things would run smoothly. 
 

The terrain was pristine, and apart from the camels there was nobody else in sight. We eventually headed south to what I’ve come to call « Little Faya » which has a few nice big dunes where we played around (and shoveled a bit) the last half hour of the drive 😂.

We exited after about 3,5 hours of driving and having covered around 72kms. That’s pretty decent and we had good fun !

See you soon in the sand !

It was almost a silent drive, we did not even need to talk much over the radio. Everybody was doing amazing job, going through the best selection of @Frederic of terrains. Thank you Fred for the drive, followed by master SL @GauravSoni . @Mahmoud Taha @Pascal and @Amr Aydin very nice and pleasure to meet you, and happy to see your performance all the way though, technical, high dunes, and ridge riding. In summary, one tug and concentrated shoveling exercise to get me out, thank you Fred and Gauravsoni for the same, other than that was just moving…moving..well done everyone.

Look forward to see you again.

Nice week ahead.
