Well done every one, amazing drive enjoyed personally and I hope all of you. All arrived on time, briefing and started the adventure. Mahafiz was full of plants and bushes, with nice small bowls, and all managed to cross all of them without any issue. We stoped opposite fossil rock, for around 10 minutes, and took our way to faya smooth soft dunes, and again all managed very well. Except one crest, managed by @Mohamad Anwer and @Ahmad Nerat in no time, thanks for the same. The last one as usual, faya big dune, which all managed to reach the top, except the old lay of @Ben Williams, which is fully understandable, little more training, vitamins, and exercises, and she will be good to go. Great to see you again @Naim Aoun and hope to see you more. @Cha congratulations on your new pajero toy, and thank you for being SL today. @Abhilash Kottakkal you did very well, unfortunately tires did not help you much, but all good. @Issam Atra you did very well with your old lady, no issues. @Srilakshman Karthikeyan @Abdelghani well done. @Ahmad Nerat thank you very much for sweeping today, and great support from @Mohamad Anwer in the centre today.

Thank you all for joining and making the drive good, and look forward to see you soon in sand.

Nice week end
