@Mohammed Osamathank you for the update. You would also require the safety flag for the drive along with the radio. You should be able to get the flag at ACE or Dragon Mart if in Dubai.

It was a fun drive on last Saturday morning. I have been not sleeping well as I was working on previous week's videos. I did not sleep the night before, so started early for the meeting point. After reaching Sweihan petrol pump felt like having a quick nap  to freshen up but got delayed slightly, only to realise half the convoy was a no show. come on guys !!

Anyways we started slow in a typical newbie fashion till our mid drive break. But something changed then - we did not drive like a newbie drive anymore. It was a full on Fewbie drive and @Bjoern and @Walter Palk you sirs kept pace and  were very competent and showed excellent driving skills. There were not even refusals let alone stucks from you two.

@Bjoern I am a little bit intrigued by your plan as you arrived with @Maria Bernadette Piendl in a single car, were you planning to share the drive? You did not share the drive though. I hope from next time onwards you both will not sign up on the same drive; as sharing is not allowed. But for a "Absolute Newbie" you were at an upper league all together.

Thank you @Brette for a great drive enjoyed it thoroughly. Thanks for your gesture of letting me give the briefing - I appreciate it a lot.

PS: Added some pics in the gallery.
