Dear Driends

Good day and welcome . The plan of our coming drive are two folds the first  is to start as early as possible not later than 05:30 so bit earlier arrival before 05:15 would be greatly appreciated . this will give us the time to drive bit in the dark till the sunrise. the second is to cover as much of a distance crossing different terrain in a semiconstant speed ranging from moderate to fast to pretty fast in some occasions and minimize the stopping time to the minimum. in ideal spots we may repeat the maneuvers as better as it gets swinging from hard to slip faces and vica versa. ... at the outskirts of Qudra south two routes are available and both will lead  us toward little sweihan upon which one we choose is govered by how fast we get there in time . from little sweihan twisties will head tward the exit at the exhibtion center of solar park.

cant wait to meet you all 

till then enjoy the remaining of the week

Drive report 

Just realized that today it  was my 💯 drive I did so far , 28 of them was as a lead . It feels like yesterday i entered the sand with carnity for the first time 😄 the more we do this hobby the more we know new things and one of many things is that it was a pleasure and honor driving with you friends todays🙏

the morning was amazingly cool today and the view to the crescent lake was fabulous , I always like to stop by it for a short coffe break and quick chitchat .


The way to it was steady and nice except of some bushy spots that we had to navigate it more or less smoothly.

after that and According to the plan we headed toward south Qudra where the real action started from there till we reached little Sweihan taking the shortest way possible to catch up with time. 

running along the northern fence of the military area and detouring left to the sweetest spot and best to my knowledge and the final section was there  bowling in and out . Side sloping . Crossing from either side of the dunes. That was epic and I enjoyed it so very much so you did I hope. next time we will dedicate a drive for this area inshallah.

along the journey couple refusals and two stucks including mine was managed nicely with self recovery  with bit shoveling at times and the only car which needed the rope twice was mine 😜 maybe the second one was toward the end and it started to heat up 😜 

along the track toward the exhibition center at solar park was our finish point on time 09:30 . 

@Simon Dawood perfect second lead . Attentive always to what comes up 👍thanks for the tug 🙏

@Ahmad Shaker considering your first IM drive you did great and your self recovery from the sideway crest was amazing 👍

@Chris Wing drove like a pro today well done my friend 

@Davie Chase it was pleasure driving with you today after quite a while , thanks for the hardy felt tug , brilliant 🙏

@DP1011 , Deepak wrangler it didn’t feel to me like it’s your first IM , probably the ‘sandwich’ effect had helped 🤣. Kidding you drove and self recovered brilliantly today 👍

@Rob S nice seeing you after a while thanks for all the help today whenever needed. 
@James Thorn and @Tom B I am sure you had your share in the back enjoying the drive . Flawless 

last but not the least a word of thank you to @GauravSoniour guardian sweep today. The idea of putting sand ( usually we remove 😅) which gave a cushioning effect was fantastic . 

till we meet once more take care and drive safe

Wow Doc 100 drives congratulations and was a pleasure being a part of your celebratory drive 

everyone drive extremely well and it was a pleasure to see everyone on the drive, I had driven with all previously which made it a great experience 

couple of the drivers were having their first intermediate experience and I believe you gave them a little taste of everything that can be experienced during the inter drives 


thanks to all for making it such a pleasure to be out and about in the desert again
