Welcome dune surfers !

@Zed @James Thorn @Mohamad Anwer @Thomas Varghese @Ashok chaturvedi @ASAD. @Chris Wing @Daniel Yang @Simon Dawood @Pacific

My plan is to start moving around 5.20 am. The convoy is strong and I am sure we are going to have loads of fun!

we will be using channel 3.

The convoy order is as follows:

1 Gaurav Soni
2 Simon Dawood 
3 Asad 
4 James Thorn
5 Thomas Varghese
6 Pacific
7 Chris Wing
8 Mohamad Anwer
9 Daniel Yang
10 Zed
11 Ashok Chaturvedi

From the support team we have @Pacific in the center, however  everyone is responsible of the person Ahead/ behind for any stuck or recovery under supervision from the support team.

Please ensure you have all your recovery gear.. ropes/ shackles/ shovels / jacks in good condition for tomorrow .

See you all at 5.15 am

Drive report:

A drive which had flavors of almost everything one can expect. Pop-outs, stucks , refusals, winch recovery, car failure, tyre stem valve leaking, flat tyres, convoy getting lost, broken flags, no flags, car getting tugged out of the desert.

The terrain was amazing and the convoy strong. Yet, proving Murphy’s law is what we ended up with.

Brilliant driving by @Simon Dawood following my moves rerouting when necessary even without guidance. 
You guys responded well with every challenge thrown your way.. well done @James Thorn  @Thomas Varghese@Chris Wing @Mohamad Anwer @Daniel Yang @Zed

thanks for the valuable support @Pacific @Ashok chaturvedi And @Zed for carefully tugging the X out to the tarmac.

At times I could sense the exasperation brewing up however I thankyou all for the patience. That’s what makes each one of you a true off-roader.

in the end, we all got in and got out safely, and that’s what is the most satisfying aspect for the convoy.

I will see you all again on sand , probably on the same route again next weekend.

Have a great weekend.

just to update you all, Thomas’s car is being taken on a recovery to his garage as I write this report. He will let us know what happened exactly!
