I would appreciate everyone who intends to join this drive to write what you think about this area and what you expect the drive is going to be like. A small note on the history of your drives in this area and any memorable drive that you drove here and cherish or hate. 

I am a firm believer in “Butterfly Effect”. One can not plan everything and one left turn will change the entire dynamics of the drive for better or for worse; who knows. What we want to do is enjoy anything and everything that comes our way.

I am not going to draw any routes for this drive, perhaps for the first time. My current plan is to enter from the west and end in the east we will loop back to where we started. Ha ha a looper’s drive 😝 

Let me warn you: this area can be quite complicated in some patches and wide open in some other but smaller patches. Little Swihan, as we call it; this area will have some very soft but narrow patches that would need your next level intense concentration while driving. It will be mostly technical drive, but if possible a slightly faster. (technical and faster don’t go together - like beer and buttermilk 😂 but I enjoy both)

any idea who named it Little Swihan and why this area is called what it is called and since when ?

For some reason, I thought the drive was today (Saturday). Funny as it may seem, I even reached the meeting point at 7:20 am, only to realize the drive is happening tomorrow (Sunday). Regrettably, I have withdrawn for tomorrow. I wish you all a wonderful drive for tomorrow. Thanks

Thanks for joining for the Sunday morning quick fix drive. The objective is to have a quick drive in the Qudra’s very own little Sweihan area. 

we will be strolling on channel 2 and this is the proposed convoy order.


the convoy is arranged as per number of drives but, the JLs decided to stick it together at the front of the convoy.

Thanks @Looper, @Benjamin, and @Imteeaz for leading and supporting another fabulous drive in a new area for me at least. It was challenging in the middle and another learning opportunity provided by @Looper for dealing with radiator issues and getting to the road again. Hope the repairs go well and not too expensive. See you on the sand again soon.

My video of today's drive is under processing. Watch this space.
