Dear @Thejas Uthran

From your profile , I suppose this is your first drive with Carnity - Which is a twilight drive. We start during the evening and drive into the night.

FYI - it is always advisable to start with a day light NB drive to get acquainted with the nuances of desert driving. I believe you have some experience as claimed before on other drive threads- so can you please elaborate more  on what kind of drives , with whom , how long and in which terrains. This is just to get more insights into your claimed experience to position you appropriately.

Please confirm your car has required ground clearance, front and rear tow hooks in good condition and a 4WD/AWD system . What off road gears you have if any? For this drive you would need a compressor, deflator, pressure gauge , Radio , Shovel and a off road flag.
