Drive Report 

What a wonderful morning today to start with , non foggy cool breezy  golden hour and an almost ready convoy to move by the time i arrived to the meeting point and it was just 05:45 am. This showed the  passion and enthusiasm you brought along and reflected later in the drive till the end. Very much appreciated 🙏
After greeting , checking and briefing each one was ready to move to what turned out to be just one of my best enjoyable lovely drives lately.


Starting slowly for every one to get accustomed with his vehicle on the sand and along the way to the first set of the long range dunes we took the track connecting the three individual lakes together. Now being there on the flat facing the first tall enough dune we lined up to practice safely the low to medium height dune side sloping and then how to cross the dune in straight up/down fashion. First it was done one by one then we continued to do it while the whole convoy in motion. Guys you were truly impressive. By then you caught the rhythm so the drive continued till we had our first proper break at Riche’s bar. 

The convoy good response encouraged us to go more further to get up to the crescent lake boundary and even beyond crossing the cycle track safely more further where we could have a closer look at the rock formation peculiar to this area from Qudra desert. From that point and back to the end was our way back with slightly faster pace and we got the chance to practice more what we have learned earlier and it was just epic. 
Throughout the whole drive we encountered couple of refusals and crests which is part of the game and learning we all did together.

learning points to remember 

  • speed and momentum are not synonyms. The first will fly you off the ridge if fast or get you crested if slow where the later will carry you no matter your vehicle weight is if appropriate ✔️
  • deflation is the king of off-roading especially on sand . The flatter is your tire the wider is your tire foot print and the lesser you will dig yourself in the sand and the easier luckily you will Crowl and self recover ✔️
  • Communication is the best tool to keep you moving and avoiding unnecessary complications. ✔️
  • Always remember never fight gravity because Mother Nature will always win instead take her by your side and make her your best friend ✔️
  • the more we practice the more learn it better than ever . .. so let’s keep practice and rolling together ✔️

last but not the least I would like to thank you all


for coming and sharing the passion together as well as I would like to thank 

@Looper in the middle of the convoy and @Davie Chase at the rear for assisting the whole convoy to be in motion and  for their valuable instructions , guidance and help when needed. .. yes how can I forget @Nathan L you played the game as second lead truly flawless today in response and communication when needed thank my friend .

Till we meet once more take care
