  1. Dear Freinds @Charbel @Haitham Khattab @Imran Kashif @Anoop Nair @DP1011 , Deepak wrangler @Imteeaz @ASAD. and from the support team @Vaibhav @Simon Dawood and @Waqas Parvez Hello and welcome to Sweihan Drives IV . I have prepared two versions of this drive the original one with the open limb of the " horse show loop " facing south via the the bowls of Strata , al salamat and alshatooha ending on E22 , and the second version being 270 degree facing west via the old lady dune and the pickup dune ending on E16. in either version the start point is the same and what governs which iterniray we will choose depends largely on how fast we pass the initial complex dunes. so be prepared for a brisk all in one drive . concenration and undevided attension is extremily important. no less is the radio communication . having said that please get a lot of rest before the drive. please notice that the meeting time is updated to 06:15 please be sharp on time meeting point : https://goo.gl/maps/KESoRwhmMDofpbey6 The nearest and last gas stations : for those coming via E22 from E66 route its alyaher gas station https://goo.gl/maps/SXjoWXFcQVCxdTAv8 for those coming via E16 its Al Sad gas station https://goo.gl/maps/ipMuhU49xpzWnWpx9 Please ensure your radio is fully charged and fixed to radio Channel 2 ( 44603125 ) convoy list as below Cheers Seidam

  3. Dear Desert Drivers, Thank you for joining the drive today. The first portion was not the best, as finding a way through the cross tracks and the bushes was difficult. Still the small bowls are a good terrain for practice before reaching the high slopes, and the long dune offers always opportunities for sidesloping. Once we crossed the pylon track close to Fossil Rock, no more bushes, and we could navigate between bowls and ridges, with the view of the mountains on the opposite side, until we gradually reached the mighty Faya dune, where we have practiced larger bowls and big slopes, up and down. Excellent level in the group, as we had only minor refusals, and one occasion requiring shoveling. @Mohamad Anwer, it was a great pleasure to have you as second lead, @Nathan L, your lines are precise, excellent control of your car, @Jad Moussalli it was a pleasure to see the Defender in its environment rather that on Downtown Boulevard, it has impressive capabilities @Mike., the white rhino was steady on the ridges and the long climbs, even if it doesn't like the steep ones, @Jaro Tuzinsky you have improved the control especially during the descends, nice drive, keep the focus at all time when you will join FB+ @Zixuan Huang - Charlie thank you for the support, always present when needed, @Patrick van der Loo that Jeep can climb anywhere , @Zulfikhar Naiyar excellent drive and communication, thank you for the sweep. It was a pleasure to have you all for the drive and the nice chats during the breaks, enjoy the rest of the weekend and see you next time !

  5. It didn't know that am a newbie. Must have recognized the car and was like I need to give a route that suits the car's reputation 😅

  7. Having used Google Maps in other countries (especially India) where it doesn’t have the most updated maps, it has the tendency to take you through narrow streets because a) it’s either just reading the map data that says there is a road there, and/or b) has seen enough data of traffic moving through that path for it to make recommendations. Because of this, it’s sometimes taken me through narrow alleys or even into fields which aren’t really trackable roads. I have also been a power user of Waze for many many years, regularly contributing to their community mapping service online. And between the two of them, I prefer putting in the coordinates on Waze than using Google Maps. I also check the terrain view to confirm if there’s actually a road there. But this is just not enough. With the rate of construction, new roads and paths are constantly coming up so it’s crucial to intersect multiple sources of data. Furthermore, when it comes to Google Maps, try to always use coordinates, an active landmark, and the full link (not the shortened ones that the mobile app will share). The shortened URLs have a tendency to break and I’ve had deliveries to my home show up kilometers away. Long story short, folks please don’t rely on technology so much that it’s your only source of truth. As you venture off-road being able to cross-reference multiple sources to build your personal judgement is critical towards becoming a better navigator. For example, if you use Gaia, you’ll see it captures farm tracks and even trails better than Waze or Google maps which are both designed for roads only. Apply the same to your on-road navigation too. Technology is not infallible. Don’t be Michael Scott and end up in the lake 🤓

  12. It was a great convoy of 18 cars and given the number of cars we’re doing quite well in terms of issues. It was a nice evening. My first trip back to the desert since my last drive in the summer. Nice to see a few old faces in support roles. Thanks Dr @Chaitanya D and the reliable support crew @Vaibhav @Waqas Parvez @Karthik Raptor

  13. Drive Info With the cool winter breeze finally starting to set in, its time to hit the big playgrounds that UAE has to offer. And, there is none bigger than the monstrous dunes of Al Quaa. This area has every kind of dune structure possible, pyramid dunes, starfish dune, steep slip faces, and bowls the size of a football stadium. BOWLS STARFISH DUNES STEEP SLIP FACES This will be the ultimate test of driver and machine. You will be redlining the engine, and your car will still crave for more. And if you felt the the above was not enough, here is the best part - we will be joined by @Frederic and @Gaurav So drivers, Start your engines!!!
