Morning Intermediate Desert Exploration Drive - New Shuwaib - Abu Dhabi - 11 Sept 2022

Recommended Posts

Dear Friends 

a very much awaited exploration drive to most probably unvisited new area by others and certainly not by Carnity .

This grid is located between the omani/UAE rocky boarders east . E55 Al Shuwaib road west , the Shuwaib dam north and Al Hiyar south making it as a convergence spot from Dubai ,Abudhabi and Sharjah emirates.

its a completely new area with terrain diversity and from the pre info collected we may encounter abrupt steep descenet , supersoft sand, star shaped dunes , and V shape blind ended pockets ..etc and this stems from the geographical location of this land. on the other hand there are few fenced reserves and tracks interconnecting them.

Its an exploration drive and not a fast paced one . if you are interested to explore the unknown and if you have done two intermediate drives at least don't hesitate to join this drive.

Dear explorers 

i would like to make it clear . It’s an entirely new area  that my self never drove in . And from studying the different maps the dune formation and sand consistency could be unpredictable from soft to super soft . In addition double slip faces of star shaped dunes are predominant in some spots which we try our best to avoid being trapped within . Sudden abrupt almost 90 degrees descent might be encountered . Risk is there sure and could be more than the usual . On the other hand there are nice dunes in the vicinity of few fenced and non fenced farms and reserves with multiple trees dispersed here and there . I have studied the area extensively before head and with the proper planing and with couple of experienced drivers I believe risks can be reduced substantially but not eliminated totally . I hope we will find the thrill what we seek in this area and reveal what is doable in the future visits to this part of the desert . 
 

can’t wait to explore it together with great vigilance and enthusiasm . 
 

cheers 

Seidam

Dear Dr. @M.Seidam I am very sorry, I have to pull out of the drive due to some family commitment.  Enjoy the exploration, I wish you a great adventure.
