Morning Fewbie Desert Drive - Super Technical - Qudra - Dubai - 24 Sep 2023


Recommended Posts


The objective of the drive is to learn how to avoid refusals. This area, being super technical with uneven dunes, will give us a lot of situations where we find ourselves facing refusals or worse a stuck. We will start our drive from Bab Al Shams with a brief on why and how refusals happen, why those refusals turn into stucks and how to avoid them. We will also try to find some nice dunes and practice ridge riding and crisscrossing. After that, we will enjoy a drive that will take us back to where we started.

Thank you all for signing up for this drive.

Winter is almost here; I could see the early morning winter fog today while driving to the office. But I think it will be another week before it is going to have winter temperatures. For this week expect it to start at 28-29 degrees and by the time we finish it should be around 35 degrees.

When I was here last time a couple of weeks ago, I found this area technically challenging yes, but did not find this area to be super soft as I anticipated. We drove on a track that would take us to the Last Exit, but the area is so bushy towards the later part of the drive that we were just trying to find sand and drive.

This time around, however, we will spend a lot more in the sandy technical dunes and then go towards north and trace our way back to the Bab Al Shams exit near the cycle track. It won't be a long drive and we will be exploring every bit of the small patch of sand and increasing the pace as we keep driving in this area.

Just a mid-week reminder that you make sure that your calendars are free to drive this week and there are no planned late-night activities causing you to have emergencies exits from the drive late in the night.
