Afternoon Intermediate Desert Drive - Star Trek: First Contact, Part 2 - Sharjah - 6 Jul 2022


Recommended Posts

This drive is organized in full compliance with the COVID19 guidelines. We expect every member that joins this drive to go through below information and strictly follow these guidelines.

Drive Details

Level:  Intermediate and above 

Meeting time: 3:30 PM (SHARP - Without any exceptions)

Meeting Point: Dropped pin
https://maps.app.goo.gl/Mzdvc57r6otCUsDdA

Action Plan:  After Star Trek: First Contact Part 1, that marked my return after a very long time to Badayer, where star dunes dominate the desert landscape, feeling encouraged by the great, almost pristine conditions of the sand, I could not wait to post Part 2. The second installment of the series of "Star Trek" drives will be in Shuwaib side. Moving South to North, we'll try to avoid the bad refraction that made reading the dunes quite difficult, and go from Bezhad Ranch toward Iftar Bowl, across several beautiful sets of pyramid shaped star dunes.

Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 8-10 inches of ground clearance.

What to bring along: Loads of water, snacks (for yourself), smiles, face mask, rubber gloves, enthusiasm and willingness to learn.

Approximate finish time: 7:30 PM (with the possibility of a 30 minute extension to reach the exit)

P.S. Only join if you have a compressor to inflate your tires after the drive.

LIMITED SPOTS AVAILABLE:

  • Limited to 8 cars maximum. RSVP will close on Wednesday - 12 PM.

  • Members without RSVP will be returned back - without ANY EXCEPTIONS.
  • Members that do not confirm the terms of the COVID requirements will be removed from the RSVP list.

Dear Desertnauts

there is a saying in Italian that goes "meglio pochi ma buoni", that is "better few but good ones". This is certainly the case for this drive, with 2 Support Team members - @munkybizness and @Ranjan Das - and an experienced Intermediate @ASAD., taking on the majestic star-dunes between Shuwaib and Madam/Badayer. A small pack of off-roaders thirsty for climbs, dips, criss-crossing and side sloping, on sand that seems to have returned to an almost pristine state, thanks to the dramatic drop in drives in this often overcrowded area, and the help from some strong winds.

Departure is from the Bezhad Ranch site, just off of E55, connecting Al Madam with Shuwaib. Meeting time should be as close to 3:30PM as possible, with the goal of leaving well before 4:00PM. The challenges offered by this area may be compounded by the softness and depth of the layer of sand freshly blown by the recent winds. 

We'll start the drive with the following posse order:

@munkybizness in Second Lead

@ASAD. at #3

@Ranjan Das in Sweep.

Positions wil be shuffled throughout the drive.

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. Have a restful night.
