  1. TRIP REPORT Due to COVID-19, it's been a while since we had so many fresh faces on a drive and hence I was pretty excited for this drive. It's wonderful that there is a trend of being at the meeting point on or before the scheduled time. It was also good to see that those who brought radios had taken the effort to program them before the drive. After a quick introduction and brief for the Absolute Newbies we started moving. @paolo dassi was my second lead and he did a splendid job of following instructions, responding clearly and keeping adequate gap incase of any route correction. @Islam Solimanhad a real challenge today in getting to know his monstrous GMC Yukon. But as the drive progressed you could see the confidence and better throttle control. Well done as that is certainly not an easy car to drive on the sand. As mentioned I strongly recommend that you remove the Air Dam (Lower Front bumper extension) so that you have better approach angles for future drives. @Biju Abdul had joined with his FJ and I hardly heard anything from him, even in the form of a refusal. Bravo. @Anam Fatima managed herself pretty well and the number of refusals kept reducing as the drive was progressing. It's a sign of growing confidence and better control. However, for the next drive please ensure that you have proper rated tow points at the front. Even though you have a metal bumper which is bolted onto the chassis, it will most likely not be accepted by the lead on the next drive. @David Ortells and @Edgar had absolutely no issues at the back of the convoy and were nicely gliding through the dunes with a lot of ease. And finally big thanks to @sertac for supporting the drive and to be more than willing to help recover some of the stuck vehicles when needed. Hope you guys had a good drive, for I most certainly did. See you next time

  3. @Ahmed Farghaly were you able to check on what Gaurav mentioned, i.e., is there any hole that is bolted on to the chassis. This is an important requirement for tomorrow's drive.
  4. Welcome @David Ortells to Carnity Offroad Club. Hope you have gone through the Newbie Briefing Video. You can get a radio at Dragon mart as Sertac mentioned. But if you are unable to get one, dont worry. Will look at it tomorrow.

  6. @Ahmed Farghaly front and rear tow points are mandatory for any off-road drive as depending on a stuck we might have to recover either from the front or the back. If your rear tow point is not there. I would strongly recommend that you get that fitted first. This is for your own safety.
