  1. Dear all, First of all thank you all for the support you provided to me today, i felt zero pressure because of that. Truly when the ambulance guys checked my BP it was 120/80 . I met most of you for the first time today and I already felt like with family who care. The good news, i have finally managed to get the car out by driving it to outside , yes i drove through the dunes with a smashed /half pajero in the dark night , to be honest it was as tough as the roll-over experience, then i managed to put it on recovery after police has given the report finally. Thanks again to everyone, Special thanks to @Benjamin for driving me home at noon, @Brette for staying back in person and over the phone @Gaurav for support over the phone to make sure all going well wish you all safe drive and definitely i will see you again on sand soon (not sure what car this time will be

  2. Great adventure @Hisham Masaadand great support from SL @Imteeazyou were driving the Vitec beautifuly Great support from @Islam Solimanand great towing by @Karthik Raptor Nice to see the usual suspects on a drive that was going so well until the unfortunate issues with the Wrangler @Ranjan DasI hope the issue turns out to be something minor and silly, please do let us know the outcome. @Waqas Parvezwe have to break the Shuwaib spell bro somehow πŸ˜’ πŸ˜‘ πŸ™„ To the rest of the team , great driving with very little refusals, except for @Simon Dawoodgetting stuck, I am sure, just to entertain us, and keep us busy while Hisham and Islam were trying to find an easier route for the Raptor to tow the wrangler ! πŸ˜ƒ 😊 πŸ™‚

  3. @Hisham Masaadi would like to thank you for an amazing drive in the initial part. The drive was going really awesome but we had to stop the fun as or brother @Ranjan Dascar decided to give up. As I am also Jeep owner I learnt a lot from this drive. Thank you @Islam Soliman Your presence made such a difference in the drive and also in the recovery. If it was not for you I am sure @Hisham Masaadwould have a big challenge specially keeping an eye on @Ranjan Das car from behind.@Karthik Raptor good job. The beauty you have easily took care of the jeep. @MMansoorif it was not with your past experience finding the cord it would have definitely taken some amount of time. @Waqas Parvez after Islam went ahead you took great care of the sweep and tugging out @Simon Dawoodis a right way. @Mohamad Anwer the feeling you had initially about something wrong going to happen even I had it where I fell sick in between the drive. Though I wanted to leave early I could not leave my brothers and managed to have lot of liquid to keep me going. @ASAD. @Imteeaz @Simon Dawood and everyone inshallah we will conquer Shuwaib soon . Special thanks @Abdelghanifor the coffee.

  5. Although sad to hear about the roll today, but really glad and relieved that you were unharmed after seeing such big damage to your car. For insurance, after seeing a tall claim, they might make some additional delay, so be very firm with them from the beginning and do a close follow-up. In some cases I have heard they take 2-3 months and harass owners with so many different reports, revisit and third-party investigations. Technically they don't need anything other than cops report, so tell them to speak to cops if they wanna add any additional twist, it really works.

  6. exceptional leadership from @Hisham Masaad and @Islam Soliman today, thank you guys. U really showed us all how it should be done. the drive had all the makings of Hisham's typical madmax drive until we had the unfortunate event of Ranjan's car breakdown. @Ranjan Das hope its not too much of an issue and you have it up and running in quick time. @Karthik Raptor special thanks to you buddy, we needed all that power of your Jimny today πŸ˜‚. The rest of the usual suspects, great seeing you again as always.

  9. @Rizwanm2a great drive yesterday morning.... thanks to @Haitham Khattab, @Senthil Kumar and @Gaurav Soni (who as @Tareq Al Turqsaid, transformed from ghost to angel 🀣) for keeping all in check, and dealing with whatever the desert threw at us. Nice varied terrain and great scenery. Well done to the new Fewbie plusses too - great job Good rest of the weekend everyone! @Tareck I faced the same issue - google maps took me close to Damac hills instead of Al Faqa - so strange 😳

  10. @Ranjan DasHopefully your car problem is a minor one. Since wranglers are known for their dependability and yours was specifically maintained by trading enterprises, it was unexpected. @Hisham Masaadreload had never been reloaded with back-to-back breakdowns, so we need to figure out the code and finish the drive successfully πŸ˜€

  12. @Murad Hamed it was nice to meet you today and you displayed great spirits despite what happened. You remained calm and composed. You are safe and sound which is the main thing. As all drivers mentioned we hope and wish everything gets resolved soon and that all is well. @Brette as Mike mentioned the immediate mobilisation to recover the Pajero and exit was all executed with precision. Thank you. I love Badayer and I have been in various drives but I have never seen the sand conditions like what we had this morning. Everyone coped really well. @Fabien Monleau great proactive support from the back. I love sweeping as you can normally have a chilled ride and explore different lines but that was certainly not the case for you today! Thank you for all your help!

  13. Thank you all for joining the drive. All made it almost on time, and got ready for a quick brief. Immediately started our adventure climbing dunes next to the meeting point, and moved through Techincal area to reach the next group of amazing dunes, to start again climbing, till we had the first and only situation, where @Ranjan Das car decided not to continue, and stopped. Waited for sometime trying to run the car, but failed. Decision made then to pull the car out, and could not refuse the offer of @Karthik Raptor to handle this challenge, and was really successful. Big thanks to Karthik for a big and appreciated valuable help. Another big thanks and appreciation for our marshal @Islam Solimanfor joint the drive and the support and guidance through out the drive and pulling out the car. @Imteeaz amazing SL, specially first time in this area, and second IM drive. You did very well, and encouraged me to push the level. Thank you all for offering the support and guidance to get out safely. At the end all left the drive with a smile, best wishes, promises and hopes to meet again. Well done @Sunil Mathew @Simon Dawood @MMansoor @ASAD. @Vaibhav @Mohamad Anwer and @Waqas Parvez. Wish you a nice weekend, and good week ahead. Regards

  14. Hi @Brette thank you for organising todays drive. Your leadership skills were put to the test today, for what should have been a relatively straightforward drive, it was anything but that! @Murad Hamed you handled the situation so well. All that matters is that you are ok. I know as the dust settles you will be extremely upset, but just remember your going home to your family! @Fabien Monleau your support was the best yet. 5 x pop outs fixed in double quick time. @Brette, there is a reason I look for your drives, today was a master class in staying calm….legend! @Benjamin, well done mate! Really impressed on the last 2 drives we’ve been on! Take care guys - Jonny

  15. @Brette Thank you for the great drive today. I managed to learn the importance of gravity seeing it first hand along with this I improved upon many skills watching how you were tackling the Desert dunes, Thanks for the offer to ride passenger back into the desert, that was a technical experience on it's own. along with the chance of being 2nd Lead. anytime there is a issue in the desert or on road let me know I will always help anyway I can. Hope to see you back out on the trail soon. @Murad Hamed I hope your feeling well mate. glad you managed to escape without any bad injuries and I hope to see you back on the sand soon! if there is any issues I don't live far away if you need a hand. hope everything goes well with the insurance.

  16. Thank you so much @Rizwanm2 for the great drive today. Faqa is such a beautiful area with a magnificent scenery. I really enjoyed it and thanks for the second lead opportunity. The drive was unique with a unexpected damp sand on the start, followed by exciting side sloping & ridge riding, ending with Technical dunes & speed run on Sabkhas. Thanks @Gregory for the great support in the center and all the tugs, @Senthil Kumar for sweeping and clear communication and @GauravSoniwho Orchestrated Stucks/Refusals for the convoy (aka Angel of the TripπŸ˜‰). Shout out to all convoy Friends, you all drove very well today, happy to see you and looking forward to drive again with you soon. Added some pics in the gallery.

  17. Drive Report What a wonderful morning today to start with , non foggy cool breezy golden hour and an almost ready all convoy members to move by the time i arrived to the meeting point and it was just 05:45 am. I just sow in that the passion and enthusiasm you brought along and reflected later in the drive till the end. Very much appreciated πŸ™. After greeting , checking and briefing each one was ready to move to what turned up to be just one of my best enjoyable lovely drives lately. Starting slowly for every one to get accustomed with his vehicle on the sand and along the way to the first set of the long range dunes we took the track connecting the three individual lakes together. Now being there on the flat facing the first tall enough dune we lined up to practice safely the low to medium height dune side sloping and then how to cross the dune in straight up/down fashion. First it was done one by one then we continued to do it while the whole convoy in motion. Guys you were truly impressive. By then you caught the rhythm so the drive continued till we had our first proper break at Riche’s bar. The convoy good response encouraged us to go more further to get up to the crescent lake boundary and even beyond crossing the cycle track safely more further where we could have a closer look at the rock formation peculiar to this area from Qudra desert. From that point and back to the end was our way back with slightly faster pace and we got the chance to practice more what we have learned earlier and it was just epic. Throughout the whole drive we encountered couple of refusals and crests which is part of the game and learning we all did together. learning points to remember speed and momentum are not synonyms. The first will fly you off the ridge if fast or get you crested if slow where the later will carry you no matter your vehicle weight is if appropriate βœ”οΈ deflation is the king of off-roading especially on sand . The flatter is your tire the wider is your tire foot print and the lesser you will dig yourself in the sand and the easier luckily you will Crowl and self recover βœ”οΈ Communication is the best tool to keep you moving and avoiding unnecessary complications. βœ”οΈ Always remember never fight gravity because Mother Nature will always win instead take her by your side and make her your best friend βœ”οΈ the more we practice the more learn it better than ever . .. so let’s keep practice and rolling together βœ”οΈ last but not the least I would like to thank you all Lukas @Lukas premindra rajaram @premindra rajaram Sayed Bilal @Sayed Bilal Khyber @Khyber Sandeep Padhi @Sandeep Padhi Brett E @Brett E Suneedh Wrangler @Suneedh Wrangler Mark Birch @Mark Birch Saleh Kuba @Saleh Kuba for coming and sharing the passion together as well as I would like to thank @Looper in the middle of the convoy and @Davie Chase at the rear for assisting the whole convoy to be in motion and for their valuable instructions , guidance and help when needed. .. yes how can I forget @Nathan L you played the game as second lead truly flawless today in response and communication when needed thank my friend . Till we meet once more take care Cheers Seidam

  19. @Benjamin @Marcin Wronowski @Murad Hamed @Jaro Tuzinsky @Mike. @TT_Dubai @Joseph Sebastian @Jonny90 @Harshal @Fabien Monleau thank you all for joining today's drive. It was an eventful drive from the time we started with the sand being wet on the surface and extremely soft a few inches below. For most of you it was probably the first time driving on a surface like that and for the most part you all coped really well. @Fabien MonleauI can't thank you enough for all the help with the 5 pop outs we had. It was a masterclass on fixing pop outs for those who were around helping. @TT_DubaiThanks for keeping an eye on the convoy and for the help on refusals in the middle. @Murad Hamedit was unfortunate what happened and really glad you came out of it unhurt. For those who were on the side it happened, the 10 seconds of seeing the car roll felt like an eternity. Please get yourself checked again if you feel any pain and let me know if I can be of any help. Hope everything goes well with the insurance too. Thanks to everyone for the help and patience today. I hope this unfortunate incident explains why every lead stresses on certain things during the briefing. The desert is unpredictable and a lapse in judgement or concentration for a split second can have dire consequences. Special shout out to @Benjaminfor staying till the end and even dropping Murad back home. Truly appreciated buddy. Thank you. You did really well in the second lead position as well, just what was need. Well done . Hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend and see you'll in the sand soon.

  20. @Rizwanm2 Thanks you for the pleasant drive that I enjoyed and found lovely today, during the beginning of the journey, the convey went through a bit of a difficult surface because of the rain, which caused the sand to settle. Specifically, the tail of the convey went through a muddy terrain, which was a new experience for me today. However, once we reached the solar park, the sand returned to its normal consistency, and the journey became significantly more enjoyable. @Gaurav Soni thanks for some added fun with extra side slopping, ridge ridding, at last, excellent tug to pull out from stuck, @Haitham Khattab driven well as SL. @Gregory as CF given clear instructions for recoveries,
