Action Plan:  A drive which aims to both get back into the RHYTHM of dancing on the dunes, as well as getting rid of the BLUES of returning from the summer holidays. The drive will start in Qudra (exact meeting point yet to be decided, with a short warm up segment in Qudra's southern quadrant, followed by a drive south toward Ghantoot, aimed at reaching the Oryx feeding station next to the exit point. If we reach the end of the trail in good time, we'll pause before sunset to sip some tea or coffee by one of the old date trees that dot, like mini oasis, this part of the desert. 

Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 8-10 inches of ground clearance.

What to bring along: Loads of water, snacks (for yourself), smiles, face mask, rubber gloves, enthusiasm and willingness to learn.

Approximate finish time: 6:30PM

P.S. Only join if you have a compressor to inflate your tires after the drive.

Dear @Pierre de Maigret, @Dinesh Kumar A, @Gurcharan Mehta. Thanks for signing up.

Since posting the drive I have been informed of a business contingency, due to which I'll have to travel away from Dubai on Sunday evening. 

Therefore I am kindly asking if you would be able to join the drive on Saturday, Sept. 4th, PM, same time. This would be very much appreciated. 

Same for the waitlisted members, @Ignacio Quindós and @Sunil Mathew.

Looking forward to hearing from you, before I change the date. 

Thanks a lot for your understanding.

Dear @Pierre de Maigret, @Dinesh Kumar A, @Gurcharan Mehta, @Sunil Mathew, @Ignacio Quindós considering the difficulty to reschedule, I will keep the drive on Sunday PM. I just kindly ask you to change the meeting time to 2PM. I will get ready for my trip beforehand, and will manage to reach the airport in time for my late evening departure.

Thanks for understanding.

Hi Ale. If you can’t do it or it’s stretching your agenda too much, I would totally understand to cancel the drive. I have another one on Saturday with Vanessa, so whatever is more convenient for you! 😜

No worries @Ignacio Quindós. An earlier meeting time would work well for me. The drive is confirmed. Thanks a lot.
