Good afternoon desert wanderers, @Aser, @Robk, @Gautam Banka, @Julien Recan, @Mark B, @Marek, @Deepak Eswar, @msa and @Luke K P, well what a fantastic drive we had today, started off with navigating the lake and the quad mire at the start, all those shining cars turned to mud splattered not so shinny ones in around 2 seconds :), we then completed 54.5 KM with an avg speed of 14.5 kmph and an avg moving speed of 23.2 KMPH and a maximum elevation of 242 m.

Once we got going the drive was smooth and we clipped along at a fairly robust pace with just the odd refusal and reattempt until my ridge riding cresting. the shovels quickly and easily took care of that thanks to the team who deployed them quickly and used them like experts. 

We then started the pop out fest part of our journey with a total of 3, not a record but still enough to give us the practice we need to become F1 pit crew. we continued on and had a couple more refusals until our second stuck of the day on an straight up and over crest, Mark and Luke took care of this with their expert rope handling skills and we were soon on our way.

Great second Lead by @Aser well don my friend you did an amazing job, stopping were you saw me struggling and following the instructions perfectly to the tee.

Luke in his beautiful new Raptor Powered beast brought up the rear and did a fantastic job informing me all the way round of how the rear of the convoy was doing and keeping us all together, always a pleasure mate, love the new wheels and the new flag, we always know where you are from the sound of the raptor and the sight of the two massive flags you not sport.

 Our CF today @Mark B did an amazing job keeping the middle intact, as well as support and directing the few refusals and the couple of pop outs we had. Great job as always good to watch you grow into the support role as I see your confidence growing.

Once again well done to all and have a great rest of your weekend. :)

Great drive today everyone. Really good fun. I hope I got some good footage before my camera over heated and turned off!! Will post what I managed to capture later in the week.

Even though the sun felt brutal, mine and Asers cars were just reading 32 & 31. I definately need to invest in a wide brimmed hat 🤠 🤠 🤠 


Some nice scenery and loved doing the criss crossing 👍👍👍👏👏👏

Thanks @Davie Chase @Mark B @Aser for managing us all and getting us out in one piece! 


@Julien Recan I hope you can get the diff lock sorted quickly! 


@Deepak Eswar here is a link to some conversations about Jack options when I needed to buy one. Any Jack is better then no Jack though! 😜

Enjoy your week ahead everyone and hope to see you again soon!!!

Short Video of the drive. Hope you guys like it


Thanks for the clip @azad

The slightly sped up section from half way gives the effect of toy cars getting up and down that dune with the switch at the top.. cool effect!
