Morning Fewbie Desert Drive - Try yourself and Enlist to DCT - Dubai - 29 Oct 2023


Recommended Posts


This is a regular Fewbie drive but you will get the flavours of what to expect in DCT. Hence it is an open invitation to all who are interested in DCT but not yet joined any teams. Join with me on 29th Sunday morning to try it your self and decide.

We will start the drive from faqa and going through some checkpoints between long range dunes. Then will do a Bajarun through subka to reach technical dunes south of solar park and high dunes in little sweihan as well. I consider this as challenge against terrain over time. Im expecting around 100km to be covered by the time we exit from the drive.  Im sure this will be different experience compared to regular FB drive. so be prepared to accept all the challenges you can think of and be ready to be a team player.  

I will post more details about the drive in due course.

At the end of the drive if you find you self up for real challenge then you are most welcome to join my team.

Dear @Jessica Lambert@Abhilash Kottakkal @Haneef Thayyil and @Arun Menon 

Kindly confirm your participation for the drive and as mentioned above please instal Gaia gps on your mobile as well. you do not have to purchase gaia subscription, Gaia free version is enough for recording tracks. 

Tomorrow i will send some checkpoints to be saved in maps so we can have a trial run and see how everyone GPS recording works. if you have any doubts you can.
