Hi Jerome!

Yeah, I'm planning to join you on Saturday if my car leaves the garage on time - will recall my RSVP tomorrow if they fail the deadline 😅

  • Had 3 desert drives in a convoy (as part of a desert drive course, majorly Al-Qudra) and a few very simple solo drives (Big red / Fossil rock areas)
  • Have stock Pajero tow hooks - hopefully they are sufficient
  • All necessary equipment is there

Looking forward to join you!

Good morning all, 

In preparation for the drive on Saturday, please make sure your vehicle will be ready.

For your own preparation, get familiar with your radio if it is not already the case.

Please make sure you program in advance the 10 Carnity frequencies. It is much easier to do it quietly at home than in a rush in the desert. The post below is very helpful.

Dear Desert Drivers, 

Thank you for signing up for the drive tomorrow morning. The weather is a bit uncertain, but nothing to prevent driving. So the drive will happen anyway, we will adjust if needed if we find wet places. If you are delayed on the road to the meeting point by the weather conditions (fog, rain...) don't worry and drive safely, we will wait for you.

Please check your route to reach the meeting point. Coming from Nahel, about 300m before the final location, you will see a road to your right, with a sign "...Winter Camp..." Take that road. It is closed by a fence. Reach slowly by the fence, it will open by itself. Then continue until you see the other cars.

I will indicate the convoy order and the radio channel by the end of the afternoon.
