Morning Intermediate Desert Drive- FAQA-Dubai - 26 Jun 2022


Recommended Posts

Dear Desert Explorers 

Hello and welcome. please if you sign to this drive i request you to pay attention to the following important points :

its obvious from the title its an exploration drive. its a completely new grid for us to explore even i didn't find a trace of any public tracks other than the one leading to some farms or reserves which are many in this area. the grid is about 20 km  from Alshuwaib dam north  to al hair  south and about 12 km from oman boarders east to E55 al shuwaib um al quwain road west in its largest dimensions. however and after studying carefully different maps the terrain is quite different in sand topography due to the geographical area where this area exist and this stems from being subjected to different wind blow directions resulting in unusual dune formation which keeps changing meaning what we will find tomorrow might be modified after couple of weeks later and this is not even updated on the best maps. having said that be ready to expect the unexpected ( double slip faces , sudden steep and abrupt drops , super soft sand , star shaped dunes ...etc ). 

I have chosen this area to explore the beauty of it ( eastern rocky mountain boarders , many fenced and unfenced trees and water in the middle of the yellow dessert. also its unique location which is feasible from the coming from Sharjah and north emirates as well as from Abudhabi and Dubai. 

As its an exploration drive in completely not visited area at least by us i preferred to keep the level of the drive to intermediate limited to 8 participants with at least 2 drives in their rank.

the desert is a place to explore and this is the beauty of it and its worth the risk which can be significantly reduced with better planning  so please check your vehicle and gear from today that both are ready and complete for your rank. check your spare tire and the tools required to un and install the spare when needed and be familiar please of how to do it.

more information to come yet when we approach the drive it self .
