Afternoon Fewbie Plus Desert Drive - The Scorch Trials (P.2) - Dubai - 31 Jul 2022


Recommended Posts

MUST READ AND TOTALLY AGREE: 

 

Drive Details

Level:  Fewbie Plus and above 

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

Meeting Point: Dropped pin
https://maps.app.goo.gl/GmwJTkPkgV2cPTQf9

Action Plan:  My most vivid, earliest, memories of my going in the desert are...heat, heat, more heat (and some dust). Unless one is going into an artic desert (yes, there are some), that's what everyone expects from a desert: to be hot. Coupling this with my distaste for early morning wake-ups, here come The Scorch Trials - summertime afternoon desert drives, as hot as they can be. The reward will be the a beautiful sunset, and a slowly cooling temperature, before heading out to a nice dinner with your loved ones. 

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.

Dear Desertnauts

while the weather seems to have gotten in the way of a scorching trial this weekend, we'll still do our best to enjoy the cooler spell among the dunes. We don't expect this drive's theme to change into The Big Chill. So we'll warm up by crossing the technical dunes just after the camel track into Lisaili's plateau, we'll bring up the temperature of the drive a notch, by venturing out to the sabkhas close to Murqaab, and will keep the drive hot by turning back toward the Lisaili pylon track, perhaps driving through the tight, soft dunes close to Solar Park, where the Carnity Desert Trophy was decided. 

The convoy will line up as follows:

@Prakash Anoop in Second Lead

@Imran Kashif at #3

@Haitham Khattab #4

@Trekado at #5

@Shaker at Center Forward

@salah2u will be #7

@Amr Aydin #8

@Gertjan #9

@Beide Worku #10, and 

@Morshedi in Sweep.

The radio channel will be chosen at the meeting point.

Have a great end of the week, and stay cool!!
