1. Do you have any offroading experience ? If so please elaborate a bit

2. Which 4x4 are you bringing ?

3. Does your 4x4 have tow points at the front and rear and they are in good condition ?

Good afternoon @Frederic, thank you for your warm welcome. I am really excited to take part in club activities. Looking forward to meet you in person.

Regarding you questions:

1. Yes, I do have some essential off road driving experiences. I had taken a course  to learn some basic navigation skills, recoveries of the vehicle stuck/unstuck and additionally I had desert driving course with an instructor too. Apart from that I already had couple of easy rides in desert conditions with friends so I could gained some basic experiences there. But definitely looking forward for improvement within club driving activities.

2. I will bring Ford Bronco

3. yes, the car is in good condition and has tow points.

If you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact me anytime.

Cheers and all the best

Martin

Goodmorning Carnitees !

I am looking forward for a morning of shoveling, joking, and occasionally some off-roading with you all :) 

A few pointers before we meet up:

- Please bring your offroad gears (radio, compressor, shovel, offroad flag, deflator) 

- Please make it on time and make it a habit of arriving with a full gas tank.

- We will be using Carnity Channel 2 - 446.03125 Mhz

You will be in the good hands of @Davie Chase , and @imranaasghar81, who have been around since the dinosaurs spoke, and will help you out on every occasion needed.

The drive plan is to start at Lisaili Fort, and make our way to the nice open dunes in Al Hathmah, and then if all goes well head towards Murquab. This area is very suitable for beginners and not too busy.

Hope to see you all tomorrow morning !

@Bishoy Ibrahim  you guys drove superbly and made our jobs of supporting you so much easier, was a great pleasure to meet most of you for the first time. Really hope those of you who drove for the first time with us today had a great Sunday morning at Carnity and enjoyed the experience as much as we did. Moreover, learnt as much as we did, we are always learning as everyday is a school day :) Hope to see you all again very soon in the sand
