Night Fewbie Plus Desert Drive - Sharjah - Big Red Return - 21 Jun 2024


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone 

Summer is hitting back  so are my night drives. We will be looping back and forth around big red over and over taking the advantage of the full moon light to lit our path and the contours of the dunes . We will be hoping from cluster to another which is peculiar in this area . Caution and vigilance is of paramount important here. 
regarding this type of Drive please make your best to come alone and no passengers as motion sickness can be very unpleasant situation . 
check your engine and gear ahead please . 
 

enjoy

@Mahesh_ Driving in night is a different experience, some enjoy it and some dont...:) very subjective. 

 

However based on my personal experience, I would recommend you do one NB or FB drive, and understand if thats your taste and comfort...personally me too I dont have off road lights, but more than that i have 50% tinted glasses, so i realised my enjoyment is Day light drives but once in a while, specially closer to full moon I love twilight and night drive too:)...

I agree with @DP1011 night driving is different than day light . The visibility is limited and the speed is lower obviously however the level of difficulty as per the drive level remains the same more or less. 
 

@Mahesh_ don’t worry if it’s your first Drive in the night . Stock high light beam with fog lights on is sufficient and the offroad lights is necessary for the first car leading . See you today evening inshallah .

Thanks for leading the drive tonight @M.Seidam, and for the 2L @Zulfikhar Naiyar and @Senthil Kumar sweeping for us.

We started on time with a full moon, and started doing some 'spagetthi' moves on the southern side of big red before moving around to the east for more, then we stopped for some moon gazing (it's a strawberry full moon at the moment to Mark the summer solstice!)

A few climbs later @Zulfikhar Naiyar noticed his temps rising and we stopped to do a makeshift coolant change and to re attach some hoses. After a quick boost start we headed slowly to the exit as the XTERRA night was over. 

We then headed back to climb big red when @Aser and @waqar had an unfortunate meeting with a ditch. I exited the drive with @Aserand we listened to the other recovery while reinflating over the radios.

Nice meeting you @Mahesh_👋

Hope the rest of the drive was good fun, repairs get done quickly, and everyone has a good weekend. 

PS, we drive about 50kph from expo back to Abu Dhabi cos of EXTREME FOG... 😅😅😅😅
