Morning Fewbie Plus Desert Drive - Lord of the Rings - Little Sweihan - Dubai - 11 Sep 2022


Recommended Posts

Thanks for a great drive this morning@varunmehndiratta!

a long convoy through little sweihan wasn’t going to be easy, but the platoons managed it! 

Soft sand and tight dunes created some challenges today, but those are the times where our skills are challenged and we develop!

Stucks, refusals and pop outs were all resolved quickly today with all of the team lending a helping hand. 

As was mentioned a couple of times during the drive, our radio is key communication tool in the desert so good reminder for all: remember to let people know when you have stopped or have a refusal, and make sure you acknowledge and follow instructions carefully.

Dear Sand Sailors

Thanks for joining in the drive today. As it was to be The Fellowship of the Ring completed the loop we had set out for.

And for this first and foremost, a loud shout out for the Platoon leaders @Chris Wing @Ranjan Das @Rob S and our CF  @Looper, you guys guided the convoy like Gandalf and ensured all refusals, stuck, pop out (the one) were fixed in fast and safe way.  Thanks a lot for your continuous support and for keeping the convoy motivated throughout this treacherous terrain, It was quite a work today with ropes, shovels out regularly, you handed it all with smile and patience.

Also, as i had mentioned even before we started, it was one of the most challenging drives to be a SL. Thanks @Senthil Kumar our Samwise, for managing the role brilliantly. Sand was soft and terrain demanded me to make adjustments quite regularly. Your red wrangler in my rear view mirror, kept me going with the plans. Understand you had some issues with radio transmission - as you go up the levels, this is a critical tool in your hand, so make sure its fully charged always and if some issue, would be good to get it fixed.

For the rest of the convoy, you all were amazing today. This terrain is one of the most challenging areas in Dubai - with steep bowls cluttered close to each other. As we well experienced, one stuck and it becomes extremely challenging for rest of convoy to cope in this area. However, we all came out unscathed with smile on our face, having completed our planned route (a bit shortcut but thats part of the game)  is in itself a testimony to your skill set and overall this convoy's ability to work as a team.

And as we heard repeatedly and experienced first hand throughout this drive - radio communication and convoy discipline are of utmost importance  - there is no scope for laxity on any of these and there's always a room for improvement. 

 @Salim Akhtar - A pop-out, and some refusals -  welcome back to sand :) Hope you enjoyed our small little sweihan here in Dubai.

 @salah2u and @Mahmoud Taha - apart from couple of refusals, you both did really well throughout. 

 @Tareq Al Turq  desert offered a nice warm welcome to you today - with some picture perfect stucks and refusals. Overall very well driven, not easiest of terrain to explore after a break - but you managed it well. 

 @Haitham Khattab @Amr Aydin and @Imteeaz - another smooth well executed drive for you all. 

 Thanks all and hope to see you all soon.

@Rob S - congratulation on completing your 50 drives with Carnity. Was good to have your their in convoy today.

Thank you @varunmehndiratta for leading us today in this challenging terrain. I can now relate why you call it little Sweihan. I enjoyed all parts of the drive especially the Ridge Riding in the beginning of the drive and side slopping  small Bowls of little Sweihan. Thanks to the amazing platoon leaders @Chris Wing @Ranjan Das, @Rob S , @Looperfor their continued support and clear instructions to make sure everyone is safe, and great SL by @Senthil Kumar
shout out to all convoy members, pleasure driving with you today.

See you all soon
