@Sunil Mathew @Ranjan Das @Patrick van der Loo thanks all for joining the drive. We will certainly do the drive and for Sunil, some portions might seem familiar as we were in a similar contingent sometime back. Most of the drive would take us in a different route to explore other dunes in the Swihan area.

I was out of station this week and returned today. I saw this mural on the wall of the aircraft and it seemed familiar- any guesses what it could be?

This was wicked fun @Looper, small group, solid pace and great driving from @Sunil Mathew and @Ranjan Das in switching around the positions, amazing fresh environment. First part of the drive I spent almost half a tank on power driving, second part really flowed. Loved it!
