  1. It's one of the best place to get freshly baked ideas without any boundaries. And most of them dies as soon as you walk out. I actually wanted to buy huge Petrol tanker once: To use after 20 years, but later realize how ineffective its additive chemicals will be after 20 years of sitting in one place. If you replace Will Smith in "I am legend" plot what will you be doing most of the time when you discover that you are the last men left in your city/country? I started with cars & money, then to drinks & foods but after a minute I realize that I will be done with all these stuff in first 3 days...... then what.....? I will pursue my long lost hobbies - photography, building something special like car or house, shooting aero/gun whatever is available. Build some giant communication device to reach others or help others. If like Airbnb idea renting your car is legal and possible in UAE, will you rent your car to a complete stranger? Me: No.
  2. You already have 119 points, looks like someone donated already.
  3. Go as far or as top as you are comfortable of doing a U turn and come back. Record the track so you can come back safely to tarmac. If any of the vehicle hear the bottom scraping noise, mark that as a limit and find a sweet spot near that area. Rocks and mountains usually mark there strength with rough and narrow path to climb up, if vehicles are stock (not lifted) then you got to take mountain offroad with a pinch of salt. Advice all drivers to hold steering with both hands and thumb position outside the steering wheel. Deflate to 25 PSI to have better traction on loose boulders as 35 PSI will spin tires faster. Carry warm clothing as on mountain it does get 5-10 degrees more cooler than city.
  4. You can do off-roading here through out the year. When summer kicks in June - Sep/Oct we switch to night drives and they are equally fun, exciting and relaxing to break from hectic schedule. Same goes for camping too, that nights are quite cooler in desert that you can easily plan bbq and camping session. Do share your wadi sena experience and feedback, whenever you make it.
  5. Too bad I missed this one, due to a bad day start. Looking fwd to see you and all new faces soon next week. Actual fun just starts with newbie drives and more you hang out more fun you gonna sign up for. Life is too boring for tarmac for 7 days, half a day off-roading should be under every doctor's prescription.
  6. I'm actually game to do a recce trip, as its been long time we have done mountain drive here. @Asoke Sen if you want to go before your planned date, just to explore the area and see if it fits your camping criteria, I can accompany you. Thanks @Chirag S. for the heads up and finding this place.

  9. Hi Nitin, welcome to Carnity offroad club, which 4x4 do you drive? Usually most of them has the required tow hooks, if not we can advice further but they are mandatory for any offroad drive.
  10. Looks like he worked out recently, while switching on the wipers.
  11. I need to copyright this term too. lol. "Timed Spare Parts" - They are timed to fail "EXACTLY" after the fixed period of time or engineer will loose the job to design them if they last any longer than their warranty period. Prime example: AC Delco and Solite Batteries - 1 year and 1 month. Solargard tinting - 1-2 years Dunlop grandtrek - 30-40k km
  12. With present approach of timed spare parts and built to fail cars from almost all car manufacturers, very soon we might have an expiry dates on the cars even.
