And for the rest of the convoy, @imranaasghar81 is an amazing camp-mate to have. So if any of you feel the fancy to do so, you'll be in phenomenal company.

Adding to what @munkybizness has conveyed, desert drives are always shredded with uncertainty- especially on newbie drives . It is not like a flight / a Shinkansen with a set departure and arrival time 🤣.


depending on situations- stucks/ refusals/ recoveries/ car issues there have been instances where the drive has extended well beyond planned exit time . 
whole intention is the go in and come out together in any case , hence when there is a issue the whole bunch will have to wait invariably till it is sorted . The time you spend together builds a team spirit along with ample opportunities to interact and know , learn and improvise on the recovery techniques.

So please plan accordingly @Suneedh Kkumar. Come with a free mind , enthusiasm and no hurry to rush somewhere.

You are right @Chaitanya D There is no point in joining the drive if all I will be thinking of reaching the office on time :D

I will have opt-out of this drive this time. Please give my slot to any waitlisted people. 
 

Hope to meet you all soon and learn more together. Regards

Dear friends 

  • Please be on time and bring all your passion for off-roading 
  • Deflate your tires to 12 psi for all terrain tires and 15 psi if regular tires
  • Please ensure your programable radio is on, fully charged and set to Channel 1 (446,006).If anyone doesnt have a radio - especially the first times with Carnity, will provide you radio for this drive only.
  • Briefing will be done  before we start moving
  • Please ensure everything in the car is tied down and there are no moving objects 
  • Please check all car fluids, tow hooks, and ensure no hanging parts below the chassis.
  • please ensure you come with a full tank (as much as possible) in addition to all mandatory gear for this drive level specially your

1. tire deflator,

2. pressure gauge

3. compressor,

4. safety flag and

5. radio. (NO FLAG or RADIO = NO DRIVE)

For first timers with the club, from your 2nd drive onwards you need to have these gears. To remind you all again your car needs to have 8 inches of ground clearence, 4WD/AWD capability, Front and Rear tow hooks mandatorily.

However a compressor is needed as the Air compressor at last exit in Qudra is not working/ very slow .
