Morning Fewbie Desert Drive - Quick Fix - Qudra - Dubai - 07 Apr 2024


Recommended Posts

DRIVE PLAN

It's part of the Ramadan Series and we will have a Quick 2-hour drive, and near to our homes (mine at least 😁). The objective of the drive is to avoid refusals. This area, being technical with uneven dunes, will give us a lot of situations where we find ourselves facing refusal or worse a stuck. We will also try to find some nice dunes and practice ridge riding and crisscrossing. After that, we will enjoy a drive that will take us back to where we started.

Request every member that joins this drive to go through the information below and strictly follow these guidelines, etiquette, and responsibilities.

More the merrier ! We will be on Ch 2 and it will be a quick drive with some very technical drive and visit some nice side sloping area, a break at Crescent Lake before we go back! See you all in the morning.

Short but sweet. 

Excellent final edition of the Ramadan series of short morning drives.

We started by heading east into Qudra desert through a heap of technical short and tight dunes. I got lots of chances to practice my three point turns in this section as couldn't swing the truck around 😅😅😅

We had a couple of refusals and stucks on the way to Cresent lake, where we were doing some nice quick pace ridge riding. 

After a fast ride across the two long range dunes, we headed back into the technical section for a drive back on the path. 

I clocked us at 2 hours 1 minute, covering 35km. Perfect timing from our leader @Looper.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and see you all again soon.
