  1. It was a beautiful morning in the sands. Thank you all of you for joining, we had a great drive and a great company. Mahafiz area has always nice surprises, as the area might look relatively flat with a lot of bushes, but it has some hidden gems, as perfect shaped bowls and long dunes calling for side sloping. We took advantage of all of it, and each of you was attentive to correct their lines when needed. Good practice for the next steps ! Then, leaving Fossil Rock to our left, we reached the Faya area, crossing this beautiful stretch of dunes. There was almost no tracks, and a very soft sand. Even with the majestic views of the mountains and virgin dunes, you were focused on your tracks, and we had almost no refusal. Finally, the high dune of Faya was there to test our machines and our capabilities, showing that a big climb is not only about power, but a combination of line selection, acceleration dosing, proper gearing... and power! All of us (ok... one of us was a passenger) made it to this perfect bowl at the top of the dune, to enjoy the fantastic view around. Very well driven everyone we had only minor refusals, no stuck, showing definitely high level and concentration. Still we had 2 recoveries, not from our convoy. One motorbike stuck in soft sand, and a Patrol stuck in a pocket not even 1 km from the exit. Just reminders that driving alone in the desert is always to be avoided. @Gregory Powell thank you for the 2nd lead, very well executed. @Jaro Tuzinsky excellent progress during the drive itself, with a good control of the Pajero. @Brett Eicher nice performance with the manual Cherokee, we forget that some of us have additional work during the drive! @Dinesh Kumar A you take the Prado to heights without efforts, making any climb or bowl look easy. @Jonny90 excellent control of the Safari, you will enjoy your car more and more! @takeshi sobue, always a pleasure to hear the FJ in the climbs! @Imran Kashif it was a pleasure to meet a new FJ fellow. A few adjustments in your lines, and you will see the performance of the FJ can still be increased. @Ignacio Quindós, very well driven with good control. Big thank you for the sweep, with timely indications from the back of the convoy. Big thank you also to @Pacific keeping the lines of the convoy and assisting the refusals when needed. I will be away for a month, enjoy the desert during this time, and see you in September !

  2. Really enjoyed this mornings drive, fantastic leadership from @JeromeFJ, great route which resulted in hardly any refusals. The practice time on the smaller bowls and slopes (and great advice) really helped when we got to the bigger bowls and dunes later in the drive. Great to meet you all and I look forward to driving you all in the very near future!!!

  3. Hi @JeromeFJ , Thank you for another amazing weekend breakfast “bowls”. Had fun going around the slopes, and pushing the climbs. Thoroughly enjoyed the company of the convoy. The view from atop Fayah was breathtaking - fitting closure to the circuit. Looking forward to your drives in September.

  8. Drive Report Driving early ahead of time thinking that i will be the first one to arrive. surprised to see already three cars almost ready and it was not even 5 am so by then every one was there preparing to have a blast in this iconic area of Sharjah desert. I truly appreciate the punctuality and passion which says it all about how great you are my friends. starting slowly to get the feel of the sand and keeping not far from exit line but parallel to it and not for a long till @Rob S had a leaking air from his tire and we agreed to safeguard it by early exit. resuming the drive back and directly now boosting it ascending and descending cluster after the other with steep climbs at some times sensing the sand is being cooked under our tyres. never gave up despite couple refusals which cleared by nice self recoveries and successful reattempting in one hand and few re routing in few occasions on the other hand. our only stuck of the day which required rope recovery came when @Trekadogot bogged in a soft patch that the 4 tires sunk in. done safely in no time after which i asked every one to recheck the pressure and keep it on 12 PSI regardless of tyre type or how heavy is the car. after this we reached Iftar Bowl directly from behind like a woke in the park and there every one took time 2 to 3 attempts to experiment climbing from either side or just straight up till top and down. while sipping my coffee in my air conditioned darkly tended X my eyes never took off on them enjoying and feedbacking on the radio whenever required. heading to super bowl were the way to it was even more fun than the bowl itself in and out bowling criss crossing sharp crests from hard to slip and from slip to hard some times in sequence and that was epic and the climax of the fast drive . looking into my watch to realize that its time to push the landing gear and start to slowly descend taking a small loupe stripe of technical dunes in between trees and some scattered camels here and there till we reached the dirt track and existed at Tawi Ghadaya. you know guys non of my drive is free from technicality the most what i love and hope you loved it too. @Rob S sorry that you day was cut short but even till then you did amazing as second lead. hope you sort out the issue soon. take care my friend. @Alexanderrr you drove like a pro today and was a treat to see the Pajero climbing till top of iftar bowl today. @Trekado pleasure meeting you for the first time. after lowering the pressure in your tires it was different as you see and remember deflation is the king in sand driving. well done my friend. @KAMALIO nice drive you are getting finely tuned with the different terrain as we drove many time and this is big plus my friend. @Karthik Raptor seeing the raptor climbing and hearing it roaring in the middle of the convoy but fine and smooth you offered a track to follow for the back half is testimonial of how good you were today. well done. the wrangler pack @Prakash Anoop @Morshedi @RiaanJH and @DP1011 , Deepak wrangler I believe guys you had a ton of fun knowing it from the big smiles at the end of the drive . pleasure driving with you all . and i almost forgot thank you @DP1011 , Deepak wrangler nice meeting you for the first time and thanks for taking over the sweep position after Rob's exit. your communications were clear and relevant. @Ashok chaturvedi bhai its always a pleasure driving with you thank you for the initial sweep and then the second lead. your care for the convoy is always remarkable and effective .thank you @Zixuan Huang - Charlie thank you dear for being in the middle and for all the guidance in self recoveries and advices. i enjoyed today very much and hope you all did . till we meet take care and drive safe cheers Seidam
