  1. Im reaching on Thursday night too by 11 PM - 12 AM, means before 2 AM ill reach and sleep, lol. For people sensitive to sleeping in light (like myself). Take 50 meter detour just before adnoc meeting point and drive on sandy patch to park car just outside Adnoc facing the highway. We did this last time and I had nice 4 hrs sleep without any disturbance. For Friday evening, I was 50/50 initially to stay or leave but recently got the new schedule from ministry of interior, so I will be leaving by 5-6 PM in evening. Guys who ever have extra radio and its charger, please bring it on as in full day drive, radio needs bit of boost.
  2. For the desert capability I will highly advise to listen to @Joe Biju Joseph and @Tbone as they both are using their H3 regularly, unlike @desertdude comment (if you have searched older topics). For Hummer as a brand that has been discontinued since almost 10 years now, my main concern would be to source new/used parts regularly in the UAE. Prado, FJC, Xterra are also VERY GOOD contender, do consider them.
  3. For some its attitude / style to show their supremacy over others by not following those stupid lines.
  4. Liwa - An Unforgettable Experience For the intermediate and above level offroaders, who have missed the chance to experience Liwa on 14 Feb, here comes another golden opportunity to embrace Liwa with its open buffet of some of the best dunes in the UAE. As much as Liwa is fun, thrilling and mind boggling with humongous dunes and vast desert, it is indeed very tricky, scary and challenging to test all your off-road skills in one drive. More than the skills and your vehicle capabilities, you need to be very sharp, calculative and attentive to understand the convoy movement with patience and level head at all times. As it's a 3+ hour drive from Dubai so ideally well rested body will enjoy this whole day drive without fatigue, so reaching a night before and camping or sleeping in the car at meeting point would be ideal, but completely optional for everyone. When: 28 February January 2020, Friday Drive start: 7:45 AM, the convoy will move at sharp 8:00 AM Where: Maraba Al Dhafra Petrol Station, Zayed City, Abu Dhabi Meeting point: https://goo.gl/maps/3TNYZFbBztR93Yo76 Level: Intermediate and above - STRICTLY. Type of Car: Proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 10 inches of ground clearance. Well serviced and thoroughly checked to be in pristine condition without any flaws, warning light, mechanical or electrical malfunction. Plan: Explore and drive till about 05:00 PM What to bring along: Loads of water, snacks, smiles, stories, enthusiasm and willingness to learn. Extra fuel jerry can - at least 20 liter, more the better. Spare tire should be in good working condition. Drinks & ready to cook food for lunch and dinner Snacks or nuts to munch while driving All spare fluids for your car Firewood (20 kg) / Car - If you are camping Optional items if you have them bring them with you (no special purchase needed) Binoculars Sand track/mat Tie-down straps Tool kit, Ratchet, socket set Essential spare parts for your car Axe, Saw, Heavy duty Hammer etc. Approximate finish time: 5:00 PM Camping and bonfire: 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM - (Optional) Sleep over: 10:00 PM - 6:00 AM - 29 Feb 2020- (Optional) MUST READ: First off-road drive checklist Off Road Driving - Roles & Responsibilities Off road Driving Etiquette's Off-road Convoy Rules Off roading - Everything you need to know Please RSVP on the below calendar.
