Oops , I accidentally clicked on manage. Didn't know that was an option. I have a curious phone finger. Don't see how to un-manage myself from this trip. 

Good morning @Renier Venter, someone removed you already from "Manage". If you want to attend, you can add yourself to the wait list. We are still at the beginning of the week, so you have your chances.

Good morning, 

Thank you for signing up for the drive on Saturday morning. We have a lot of attendance including the waitlist and unfortunately, I will not be able to accept everyone. If the convoy is too long, it becomes more difficult to have all cars running together, and if we have more issues, or more cars stuck, it takes more time for the whole convoy.

So... this is what I will do

@Giacomo @ChrisW @Wilfredo Perez @Ozgu @Adam Black @nithish468 @Joji varghese @Rajath Shetty @jinoy @Zubail @Walter Palk @Zubair @Gary F, you are confirmed. No action from your side, but let me know or remove your RSVP if you changed your plan.

@Victor Socaciu @Benjamin, first 2 in the wait list, I'm adding you to the drive. Please confirm your attendance.

@Martin Schwaiger @Julian Patterson @Martin M @Ahmed Farouk, you are in the wait list, in that order. If before Friday 7:00 pm, one of the  above indicates he is not coming, I will add you.

Thank you for your understanding.

I will communicate by the end of the afternoon tomorrow the convoy order and radio channel. Stay tuned!

@Victor Socaciu, If I'm correct, this will be your first drive with Carnity. Can you please

  • indicate if you have previous off-roading experience.
  • watch and confirm the video "Absolute Newbie Briefing" (link on top of this post),
  • check and confirm that your car has tow points front and rear
  • confirm that you have flag and radio, and a shovel

Any specific question, let me know, thank you.

I am waitlisted but I most likely cannot join due to other commitments at the same time so you can give my slot someone else

Thank you @Martin Schwaiger, I hope you will have another opportunity very soon.

Hi @JeromeFJ

i just bought a jeep wrangler last week, jl model, 2 door, year 2020. 
i have no previous offroad experience

i haven’t watched the video yet, but I’ll do so tonight.

i don’t have a flag and a radio, but I plan to go buy them on Friday. Could you advise me which radio i should buy and from where?


Thank you and I’m looking forward to my first offroading experience! :)
