Well what an interesting drive! A good mix of grades present on a Fewbie cruise. We had enough experience to deal with nearly everything... so nearly everything we had! Stucks, refusals, pop outs, car-sicky bail out and a mechanical failure. Thanks to @Vanessa8580for solid leadership that saw us escape the perilous sea of sand intact and in good cheer. Thanks also to @topgear for sweeping and especially @Waqas Parvezwho was busier than a one armed paper hanger helping at all four corners. Nice to meet all of the rest of you, some, for the first time and some for a long time it seems and I look forward to more of Vanessa's challenging 'Fewbie WTF?' drives in the future ;-)

@Warren Flay it was a pleasure driving behind you today.
Thanks @Vanessa8580 for a comprehensive experience! Being my second fewbie drive, I am assuming there are not so many new things to be seen after today’s drive I guess :) 

@Waqas Parvez, hat’s off to you, you were a one-man army today! 💪🏻

The first part of the drive was tricky as we were moving towards the larger dunes. We had to exit @Sunny84 early because of his passenger got motion sickness (hope she is doing well). It was a lovely early morning start; we were practically waiting for the sun to rise. The light shone through the clouds and covered the sky the entire time we were driving.

The second part of the drive was an interesting one; it began beautifully with high fast climbs and side slopes, and then, as Warren indicated, we faced every conceivable problem, including popouts, recoveries, and mechanical breakdown. Despite these difficulties, however, @Vanessa8580you remained unfazed, demonstrating your experience and guiding us throughout the drive.

Supporting the convoy was yet another wonderful experience, and it provided valuable learning.

@Sam K I hope your car is fixed quickly. I know it was not the easiest day for you when you first got caught in the bowl and then your brakes failed, but you handled the issue with positivity and a grin on your face.

@topgear and @Warren Flay thank you for your support, rest of the convoy drove beautiful and it was enjoyable getting to know new individuals @Mike.with his white rhino @Brett Eicherthat jeep of yours is a little monster, @Ignacio Quindós@Pieter Potgieter@Imran Kashifpleasure meeting you as well.
