DRIVE PLAN

As the temperatures soar, we start earlier and end quicker. This drive is a quick fix for those who crave for one more drive but don't have much time. A regular rerun of the drives we did few times in the past. We meet a little ahead of Badayer Shops and drive straight ahead, with the war cry "Yalla Push". It will be short quick drive. we will start at 5:45 and end by 8:00 so that we can inflate and leave the area by 8:30.

It wasn't a very long drive, but it was quite challenging, and for the first time, I felt it required a lot of expertise to navigate the route on this particular day. Until now, all the intermediate drives at Badayer had felt more like Fewbie Plus +, but this time was different. The terrain's sand was extremely soft, making it difficult even to maneuver. Since we were the first to climb them dunes, I hardly saw any tracks except for a few faint lines, that means wind had erased the tracks left by Saturday's convoys. As the name suggested, the drive was quick, with less than two hours including breaks, and the driving time was less than an hour and a half. We ventured into some less frequented places, adding to the uniqueness of the experience. Thank you @Benjamin, @Mahmoud Taha and @Ishak for joining the drive.
