Great morning in the sands! thanks @GauravSoni for leading us through the sands. Well done to @Jaro Tuzinskyin SL and @Tareck for sweeping us at the back! Thanks also to @Pacific with the shoveling as support team!

Getting the right balance between Gas and momentum take some time, and changes vehicle to vehicle but plenty of practice today! We managed to recover most vehicles today with some good shoveling and digging "V" channels from the front and rear of the car allowing gravity to help us shift the sand from under the vehicle bellys!

I didnt see much of the guys at the back today, but was watching in my mirrors for @jad, Well driven today for your first Fewbie, only one stuck that was resolved without a rope! In front was @Zulfikhar Naiyar, well driven today buddy, and good shoveling from your passenger! Make sure you balance the gap to the car in front with leaving room for stopping, but also close enough to watch the car in front to better judge the terrain and allow you to adjust accordingly.

See you all again soon!

Sad indeed! This shows the risk involved in every adventure activities be it paramotoring or off-roading or any other extreme sports… following the safety instructions and rules are of paramount importance…still sometimes things go the wrong way and even the most experienced can have a hard day.. rip

@Gaurav Soni thanks for a very nice drive last week, ably supported by @Rob Sand @Pacific.  Interesting to run my long truck in 2wd @ 2500rpm but we managed 😁
