Dear Challenge seeker, 

I hope you are excited for our tomorrow's drive. 

Due to the rain rain showers the past few hours , i will kindly ask you to be extra focused on the drive and keep a very good control of our vehicles avoiding even the slightest fishtailing!! as the sand could be unexpected .

always emphasized and required that everyone make sure of your car is in a perfect shape and have all your gear as per your rank.

Meeting Point: https://maps.app.goo.gl/8h8yf4zznDE4jQbJ6

Meeting time is 07:00 AM Sharp

We will use Carnity Radio Channel 7.

The convoy order will be as the following :

@Simon D I was accepted in the waitlist but I don’t see my name in the list. Also I saw many dropped out

@Hugo, as the dropouts happened your name was automatically transfered to the main drive list. And ofcourse you are welcome to join.

Hey @Simon D,

My car has been blocked by 2 a…. 
I’ve tried the police but no luck. Unfortunately won’t be able to make it in time. Sorry man. 
 

See you in the next one 🫡IMG_6392.JPG.85d063d8f67b7493c42eed53b38c9a07.JPG

Dear Friends , 

I hope you enjoyed the roller-coaster drive yesterday ,  unfortunately due to the wet sand it was not safe to take all the planned roller-coaster lines. we had a couple of refusals and stuck but nothing major.  everyone drove really well.

@Hugo you have been a really good 2nd lead

@Abdullah N congratulations on your 1st FB Drive, you have driven really well and i am glad that my advice helped you get a better control over the fishtailing issue, but with time you will get used to your car dynamics . 

@Renier Venter you have driven very well and you have a good control over your car, well done!

@Sunil Mathew you did really well in the CF position supporting the the stuck and refusals . you allowed me to focus creating the smooth and safe lines while you took care of the issues in the back .

@Mohammad Sayawoush Azad you have done really well , i hope your kids enjoyed it.

@Robk i am glad that this time we didn't need to use the trunk of your gladiator for anything 🤣, you did really well and i hope your passenger enjoyed the ride .

@Faraz94 your off-roading skills are getting better every time i see you .

@Harshal thank you for sweeping the convoy . i have driven behind you last week and i was sure that you are ready for such a role. it is not easy to control such a powerful beast but so far you are doing great   .

 

thanks again everyone and looking forward to see you again soon,

I have uploaded some pictures into the drive gallery

Thank You for such an amazing and joyful drive @Simon D. I can safely say that this was the best drive for me so far.
the long-range dunes, the weather, the climb challenges... such an awesome and memorable experience for sure.
Looking forward to more and more drive with you.

@Sunil Mathew Thank you for the amazing pictures ❤️

Thank you @Simon D for taking us through the Pink Rock to Big Red terrain, and living up to your promise of a roller coaster drive...I am sure our fewbie members got a good taste of the famous Big Red climbs, and also a taste of what awaits them at higher drive levels 

Good to drive with all of you @Hugo @Abdullah N @Renier Venter @Mohammad Sayawoush Azad @Robk @Faraz94 and @Harshal....everyone drove really great, requiring only minimal support....hope you took home some new learnings....see you all in the next drive as and when our paths cross

Just to put across a pointer, banking on yesterdays stuck with @Harshal which i forgot to convey to you Harshal during our post drive chit-chat,  - once we are stuck, please do not continue to self recover indefinitely.. its always good to wait for external support so that someone can see your car from outside and make a judgement. Basically , all of us need to know when to "STOP" self recovery...or else we will continue to dig in and end up with all 4 tyres in 4 deep pits :D (applicable for a typical flat and soft patch like yesterday)....once you are sunk so deep, the effort required to pull you out is exponentially higher which is why i tried to do some digging and make it smooth for my feather weight fortuner compared to your mighty Tundra.. Still ended up with some violent dance moves :D ..probably has something to do with the angle of pull as well ..Open to comments  - @Simon D and everyone
