"BATEEN LIWA" It was one more epic drive this time. Driving through liwa dunes every winter is always a dream for me, where I get the chance to explore and learn more, and this time my plan was to pierce the proper liwa dunes and to stay on the top at highest point and drive through those stunning untouched rolling dunes. As usual going to the top is a difficult part and once you are on the top it is a real fun to drive.

My favorite second lead @Santoso Marjuki you were truly amazing and i can still feel your Rubicon roaring.  @Salim Akhtar i always see you having regret that you are driving a pajero 3.5ltr, i hope you will not now :)@Beide Worku hats off to you, the way you control your LWB F150 is really commendable. At every sticky situation i is to worry that you will make it or no, but the moment i looked behind you were just behind us, truly amazing. @Jona best sweep, thank you for not leaving anyone behind.  Once again thank you all for making this drive come true. See you soon.
