Thank you all for your kind words. I really appreciate to be in such a community with so amazing people. I look forward to every time out there in the desert with you!!! 🌻IIIIIII🌻

Special thanks to @Felix Obst who brought me here and showed me the beauty of off-roading, and also to @Gauravwho gave me the best masterclass possible so that I could tackle the dunes without any fear from the very beginning.
