Dear Desertnauts

let's prepare for our excursion on a very little driven terrain, where mostly locals roam, and where all kinds of off-roading skills will be tested. Thankfully, the convoy will be quite experienced, so we should be able to maintain a brisk pace, and add some learning options to the menu. We'll try to build up the drive all the way to almost its end, when, just before exiting, we'll have fun riding the soft red sand bowls that overlook Tazi Nazwa. 

The convoy order will be the following:

@DP1011 , Deepak wrangler in Second Lead

@Anthony Cupit at #3

@James Lovell #4

@Usman Basit at #5

@Thomas Varghese will be at the Center of the convoy

@Ali Shah at #7

@Andrei S #8

@Arshad Roojee at #9

@salah2u #10, and 

@Sunil Mathew in the Sweep.

The radio channel will be confirmed at the meeting point, which is just after passing the village of Lahbab, on the way to Badayer.

See you all on Saturday PM.
