  2. Hi @Benjamin. Happy to see you on the list. Attending to the BBQ in the evening will not prevent you to participate to the drive in the morning. You will see, the area is beautiful. No specific requirements. Just drive down the E66, exit to the E20 at Al Hayer in direction to Sweihan, and then E95. You can refill just after the exit of the E66 (ADNOC Service Station | Al Hayer-2 (659)). Just before the meeting point, you will see a gate. Just drive slowly to the gate, pronounce the magic words "Desert Lords, kindly let me in, I will show care and respect", and the gate will open.

  4. Dear Desertnauts, quick tips about tomorrow's drive. We are planning quite a long ride, so the small convoy will be helpful to make sure we move speedily and efficiently. The first part, from Tawi Nazwa, will skirt Pink Rock, and aim almost straight toward Big Red. It'll be mostly long-range dunes, and a few bowls, except for the climb of Big Red, and "the big dune before Big Red". After that, we'll cross the highway, and will aim directly for the further away star dunes, to avoid the ones closest to Badayer, which are packed with tourists. Our goal will be to reach the furthest point in the area, at Bezad Ranch. If unable to do so, we can exit anywhere past Super Bowl. The convoy will line up as follows: @Alexanderrr in Second Lead @Jona at #3 @Ignacio Quind贸s at #4 and @DP1011 , Deepak wrangler in Sweep. The radio channel will be chosen on the spot, as usual. You may be lazy this evening, as well as enjoy a lazy morning tomorrow, but be ready to rock and roll tomorrow afternoon. See you soon.

  26. @Srikumar, what a beautiful day ! You pushed us to the top, and we pushed our cars to their max (I discovered a cut-off @5500 rpm with certain conditions). We lack of words to describe the thrill, the enjoyment, the emotions of these beautiful moments, but the pictures in the gallery reflect all this. Thank you @Gaurav and @Frederic for the 2nd and 3rd lead and the guidance throughout the drive, @Amr Aydinyour lines where beautiful and precise behind Fred, @ASAD. @Waqas Parvez @Vaibhav amazing trio of skills and camaraderie. Many many thanks @Srikumar, not only for that drive, that was outstanding, but also for bringing us with @Gaurav and @Frederic to that level where we can enjoy these epic rides ! And special kudos to @GauravSoni, who brilliantly took the challenge of leading the second convoy !

  30. Drive report : Some issue with google maps took some members elsewhere - about 20-30 km away, and i had to send them my location on whatsapp but glad they could make it on time. Will try to include some pointers on next drives so that we don't become entirely dependent on google maps and have a visual perception as to where the meeting point is. All prepped and briefing done, a loooooong convoy meant @Waqas Parvez probably run out his first battery on his radio calling out the members positions and radio checks. Thank you for your help all along the drive buddy. Making way for a long convoy, I myself ended up in some situations in soft pockets where it it was great to see everyone come in as a wonderful team to sort out the issues. @Andrei S played 2nd lead role to perfection correcting lines and stopping in time when I ended up in some soft patches/pockets. Well done. @Georges Kazan drove his FJ well , managing some tight spots and soft patches with few refusals. I hope by next time around you would be better prepped and ready to get better for that fact you have a fantastic car. I was wondering what could be the reason for your compressor to stop working after inflating 3.5 tires , may be you need to give a break in between so that it doesnt overheat as the onboard compressor on a FJ is tiny and slow. Another option is to have a faster compressor with higher flow rates .Never the less, you can drive safely even with underinflated tires >15 psi (not fully flat) upto 80 kmph. Just remember not to turn aggressively @luwaimn good to see you finally after a long hiatus, you did well most of the drive except for some soft patches where in you needed some more momentum. @Goh KP again coming after a long hiatus, did well with his SWB pajero. Well done @topgear was wonderful as usual, great energy and enthusiasm . Wonderful to see your family and especially the Jr after a long time. @Vaibhav was very helpful as the first Center Forward. Jumping into situations quickly to assist. Long convoy meant you had to relay messages to the back @Gary F riding a long wheel base gladiator meant it would be tricky in some tight spots we ventured, ending in a crest situation which was tugged by Vaibhav well. @Usman Basit another trukker, riding a LWB GMC did well . IN fact all the LWB trucks along with more experienced @Harshal riding a Tundra and @Karthik Raptor did well. Karthick was great supporting as second center forward in the back advising as and when needed. The more experienced bunch riding at the rear end including @Krishna R, @Adnan Halepota, @Yerem Davtyan, @Imteeaz and @Senthil Kumar hardly had any issues . well done Sweeping all together - infact a long bunch was no less task for @Waqas Parvez. Thank you for your help. It was a long convoy , we managed to clock 45+km with good pace, picking up speed towards the end which I hope every one enjoyed. I would advise again for members who wish to join night drives to come prepped with some extra lights for better visibility when you step out, wear full trousers and covering shoes. Getting on sand every time makes you learn some thing new in terms of recovering and in terms of making new friends and knowing each other in a better way. If you were not stuck or having any issues this time around, next time come prepped as it might be your turn 馃檪. Untill next time, see you soon, Enjoy the off roading season safely considering winter has set in!
