Dear Desrtnauts

let's prepare for tomorrow's drive.

Firstly, it plans to be a long drive. Therefore, I'd like to start as early as possible. Even though it will be hot, I have moved the meeting time at 3:00PM (considering that half an hour more or less is not going to make it any cooler). 

Secondly, the reason for anticipating the meeting time is that I'd like to close the drive beyond the initially planned exit location (at first in the general Lahbab's area, between Margham and Nazwa), exploring an exit path reaching out as close to the actual Lahbab's village as possible. 

Thirdly, about the meeting point, it used yo be easily accessible, on the left side of the Qudra Lakes to Solar Park road. However, now that the road has been doubled, and a partition is separating the two double lanes, we'll probably have to turn around at Solar Park itself, and trace the way back to the pylons close to the indicated entry point, which is on the dirt track coming from Lisaili. Please consider some extra time for this now unavoidable detour.

The drive will cover a lot of ground, first through Lisaili's plateau, then on a stretch of dirt track going from the Lisaili exit point, across the Dubai-Al Ain Road, into the dunes leading to Margham first, and further onto the exploratory track to the new planned exit point.

The convoy order, barring some last minute drop-outs and additions, will be the following:
@Gertjan in Second Lead

@Imran Kashif at #3

@Gerrit Bus at #4

@Amr Aydin #5

@Daniel Rodas at Center Forward

@KAMALIO at #7

@Imteeaz will be #8

@Beide Worku at #9

@Karthik Raptor #10, and 

@Tom B in the Sweep position

Radio channel has not been chosen yet, and will be announced at the meeting point.

Please, remember the new, earlier, meeting time. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Dear Desrtnauts, I was last week in the area of the meeting point. If you go around the round about, facing back to last exit, you should be able to take a right just after the round about and easily reach the meeting point.
