Good morning Carnity Friends ! It promises to be a busy weekend. We have less drives available unfortunately due to our yearly pilgrimage event (Liwa Crossing), but we will make the best of it.

Attendees

You all have confirmed spots for this drive.

 

Waitlisted Attendees

You are all in the waitlist currently. Usually we will have couple of dropouts, so keep an eye out, and perhaps we can add 2-3 waitlisted members. 

 

@Natalia Koryakovtseva this is probably your first club drive according to our data, so kindly introduce yourself and provide us the following info:

1. Which 4x4 are you bringing ?

2. Any prior offroading experience ?

3. Is the 4x4 equipped with front and rear towpoints ?

 

In the meantime, please take your time to go through our Absolute Newbie briefing video:

See you soon !

Hi @Frederic

Just reading through your required reading links for this drive.
Are the covid19 related restrictions re: masking, leaving vehicle at rest stops being enforced on this trip only?

(Links titled 'COVID19 Precautions' and 'Ban from Carnity Off-road Club')

Earlier drive I did this month w/- carnity had no such restrictions mentioned in the required reading section.

Cheers!

Hi everyone!

Thanks   @Frederic for questions.

Yes , indeed this is my first time being behind the wheel for a desert drive:) I was a passenger a few times previously - that was truly great so decided to try myself.

Summary: 

1) Jeep Wrangler 2011 ( 2 doors)

2) Only passenger experience 

3) Yes, car has all necessary equipment since it participated in multiple carnity desert drives.

Excited to meet everyone on Saturday and will definitely watch the shared video.
