what perfect day it was...

as per my plan we started moving soon after the dawn from nazwa farms... surprisingly we had a very strong wind in the morning,, which made weather most enjoyable but the terrain was very surprising.   Due to strong wind blowing to the slip faces it was very much difficult to read sand formation. even though the surface look compact sand underneath was very soft...  this bring us the importance of expert second lead. kudos to @GauravSoni for re rout the convoy whenever it was required. even though it was challenging route at the beginning we managed to find some nice ridge riding and side sloping. everybody did exceptionally well and we were at the top of pink rock before 7 am. 

after a small break we head towards 2nd december and cross over to the other side of the road to explore the second part of the drive. the drive plan for this area was totally different to the part one. it is kind of low speed exploration drive.  this area is mostly dense with vegetation and some high trees in between which make it perfect for camping.  we explored couple of nice camping spots along this route. then we head towards south and crossed the mahafiz faya road and drove along the pilon track.  the track next to the faya mountain was quite rocky. it was different kind of drive to our usual sand driving.  we were able to drive close to the mountain and found some nice camping spots.  

after the photo session third part of the drive straight to faya climb. to everybody  surprise we saw the cleanest faya without single track. it gave us plenty of opportunity to conquer the faya as much we want. finally we all climbed to the top of faya and enjoyed the nice breeze at the top of faya.  

all this was possible due to excellent convoy we had today. Thank you very much @GauravSoni @varunmehndiratta for jumping in to support this drive. @Anoop Nair thank you for sweeping the convoy today. 

@Sam K @Sunny84 @Mahmoud Taha @TT_Dubai @takeshi sobue you guys performed  more than excellent.  thank you very much for joining the drive. hope you guys enjoyed it, see you soon next time. 

i would love to see nice photos from the drive. please post it in the gallery.  

have a nice week ahead. 🙂
