Hi @Brette,

Looking forward for the drive this coming weekend!

I had previous off-road driving experience in UAE from off-road drives with private groups. I joined Carnity on the recommendation of @Tom B and have since loved the community driving experience. Having completed two drives already as a newbie (+ the absolute newbie drive), which I really enjoyed, I have gained a good understanding of the convoy group working as well as Carnity's policies. 

 

 

  • Last weekend I went on a drive with @Tom B and @Rob S. I am pretty sure they can vouch that I kept up with them 😁. Check the attached photos for the technical area part and the overall ride.

Last Monday I applied for off-road promotion (Fewbie Level). Are you able to look into that request?

I was never in a rush to move rapidly in the ranks, but having went out on few drives already, I believe I will learn more in the Fewbie level. 

Cheers,

Sam
