  1. Post Drive Report Nice drive this morning with fantastic support from the senior drivers for the less experienced. I would have said 'We drove all night, to get to you...' [Ed: enough of this game] but maybe it just felt that way because the drive started early. We took the dune route to the bowls, which mercifully were not churned up like on my last visit to Margham and had a bit of fun in the bowls. Knowing what was to come, this was not too long. The characteristics of the dunes around this area is that they are small, semi technical and have a lot of soft sand - which was

  3. Today was a perfect day ( last one I promise), open flowing drive, not too hot, a real mixed convoy, now I see the benefit of mixed convoys, I really enjoy helping out and learning and if possible sharing some knowledge, I learnt today all about Mitsubishi relays and how to get the most out of the Pajero before resorting to external forces. Invaluable. Our good friends Momentum and Commitment were also coming out to play and by the closing stages were in full effect and performing well. We have to remember that what we do is not necessarily natural, our motto of not fighting gravity can be cou

  5. Fabulous drive @Wrangeld I really enjoyed myself and as usual, I learnt as much from watching others difficulties as I did dealing with my own. Your calm leadership style I am sure helped the confidence of the newbies and lowered stress levels all around. If you want to drive my Gadgero at any stage to assess my modifications, you are more than welcome. See you on the next one! Thanks to @Foxtrot Oscar for keeping our tails safe and a special mention to @Watteau as the most patient caring mother hen I have ever driven behind, well done sir!

  6. We Rocked Sweihan This was our 3rd visit to the same area of Sweihan in as many weeks, but endless swath of sand in Sweihan just refuses to disappoint. We pushed, pushed and still kept pushing. Endless side slopes, beautiful rolling dunes, criss crossing and bowls as big as stadium was the overall theme of yesterday's Sweihan drive. To supplement this beautiful terrain we had an amazing set of drivers in @Hasan Wahlan @Ruan van den Heever @Farouq Owdeh and expertly swept by @Chaitanya D. Drivers that were brave and courageous, not afraid to push their cars to the limits. We did

  7. @Wrangeld what a wonderful way to spend a morning! Loved this drive (views, climate, 80s pop hits references). A little more challenging than I remember newbie drives so special kudos to the newbie members within the convoy! special mention to @Watteau … a master class for us intermediates in the CF role and general convoy leadership! Clear, calm, patient and such a great approach to motivate and compliment our newbies as they went through their respective recoveries! I tip my hat as you were an out an out winner of our competition (even with the -3000 points for the baked

  9. Thank you all for an epic drive. Nose dive and Monnique's screaming litt up the Sweihan night and echoed through the peacefull dessert. I can only say thank you for all the effort by every drive lead and sincerest appreciation for all the experience which you share with us to make us great drivers and able to tame the sands of time.

  15. @varunmehndiratta, my bad, I have updated the details now. As Rizwan is not joining the drive, I will need your support at SL, especially this being a night drive.

  16. @Luca Palanca Falsini thank you for a great drive today, we covered close to 40Km in 3.5 Hrs. Appreciate the advice you and @Francois Germishuys shared as well as the encouragement to use manual gear when climbing dunes, the difference was evident and as we drove I felt more comfortable shifting between D to 2nd and 1st gear. @Dodi Syahdar and @[email protected] it was a pleasure meeting and driving with you again. Until next time, stay safe and have a great week ahead.
