@Islam Soliman can you share the meeting point estimate? I would like to know which way is the wrong way (e.g. I am not sure if I will be able to get up at 3AM if we will approach Faqa from Abu Dhabi side ;-) ).

So just to be clear where is this drive going to start...

Hi Islam,

Apologies for dropping out of such a short convoy. 

I had 3 sleepless nights, so I definitely need to recover before driving for 6 hours.

sorry again

Very aggressive and demanding drive! @Ishak, I hope you will not have any issues finding the right shop to quickly balance your wheel. Have a great weekend gents!
