  1. My plan is to end in Badayer, there is a mosque for Friday prayers. But in case convoy is slow I have alternate plans as well. https://maps.app.goo.gl/9zzMXZBLJ75TAF4f7
  2. Great to see you after a long break. If I'm not mistaken you have the Y62 which is the new shape. Hopefully we can save your bumpers again.
  3. @Vimalkv welcome to Carnity Off-road Club. Few questions: 1. Which 4x4 do you drive? 2. Have you had any previous off-road experience? 3. Does your 4x4 have front and rear tow hooks?
  4. For a change my wife dragged me to Ace Hardware saying it's on 90% sale. It was difficult to find parking with people coming out with bags full. Sure a few useless things. But the Busjranger air compressors are going for a bargain. Anyone interested het it today itself as last day for this sale.
  5. Attention all newbies, this one is specially for you. Naval Mazda more popularly known as Pink Rock will be part of our morning tour and if time permits we will finish it off at the Bid Red also known as Bidayer. Time to find out how they got their names. This area offers one of the best set of dunes that suites drives at various levels. Plan is to have a relaxed morning Newbie drive till about 11:00 am. Depending on the Fewbie response, we shall then have a second session after the Friday Prayers in some more challenging dunes to suit the Fewbies. When: 06 December 2019 Meeting time: 8:00 AM sharp, convoy will move at 8:15 AM. Where: Tawi Nazwa Shops GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/4U9z5Q9HdesX3UU59 Level: All levels welcome. Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 10 inches of ground clearance. Plan: Newbie Drive till about 11:00 am What to bring along: Snacks - whatever you like with little extra to share -, water, liquids, smiles, stories, enthusiasm and willingness to learn. Approximate finish time: 12:30 PM Please RSVP the below calendar event

  7. Well at least the bullet proof window can be smashed through twice as demonstrated at the introduction event.
  8. Great idea @Carnity please clarify.
  9. I have always loved the R34 the best. It's my all time favourite.
  10. @Omairfk when in doubt better to ask. We are all here for you. It depends which insurance company you are using, check with them if you can pay the extra to add on off road cover. If it's a new vehicle it's worth every fil.
  11. @Xaf superb video. Really like the mix of the actual audio with a little back ground music. It really goes well with the video.
  12. Hi @Barry first time I heard this name.
  13. @MisterPoet I have been dogged with so many things I have not been able to get to it. But I don't mind wasting 10 Dirhams, just time is a constraint for me right now.
  14. Trip Report - A nice crisp cool morning. I got a bit delayed to reach the meeting point due to one of the roads being closed. By the time I reached the briefing was almost done and we quickly headed to the deflation point. Here after deflation we were given our convoy numbering. The first part was newbie and @Srikumar has matured into a fine leader who can create a smooth path through a very difficult terrain. @Atif being in second lead is also growing into the role and manages the position with utmost ease. As @Amit0103 pointed out I was strategically placed behind him, but my eyes were glued at @Halit Mert Issever as he enjoyed fish tailing at every possible opportunity. Followed by @Julien V, @AKR, @Xaf and @Brette. Good to see @Brette stepping up to the sweeper position with @Xaf to help. Before we knew it we were at the base of Pink Rocks. The main time spent was the traffic on top. Everybody managed well. At this point we were in search for a shaded area to start our breakfast. We found a nice spot to settle and breakfast was amazing but not as amazing as the stories exchanged. While having breakfast there was still an itch to continue. @Srikumar made an awesome decision to continue at Fewbie level. It was good sporting decision for @Amit0103 and @Navinchandar to continue as passengers. This was a fast paced and wonderful part of the drive enjoyed by all. Although I feel that criss crossing over broad dunes @Halit Mert Issever and @Xaf were turning 90 degrees to go over, but it was their first drive at this level and would like to see them improve on this point. The second part of the drive was fast and we almost conquered Big Red, but due to time constraint we had to exit. All in all a brilliant drive divided in 2 parts and enjoyed by all.
  15. I remember Virgin Galactic started similar program about 12 years back. But after taking first 4 passengers they had to stop operation, not sure why. Number 4 was an Iranian lady which set some kind of a record. Number 7 was the owner of Omniyat Properties Mr Mehdi Amjed who never got his chance. With my recent visit at NASA in Florida since they did not have a launch pad, they were using services from Russia and pay USD 80 million per seat. USD 250000 seems a bit low. But for me this is a bit of a hoax as even normal carriers fly within inner space. Outter space is not much different, maybe just bragging rights.
  16. My concern is being Chinese cannot be reliable, it might work for 10 years or might cough up on the very first recovery. Plus I saw it in person and it is very high which means in desert you need to dig deeper. Another point is its very heavy. Plus I'm more comfortable with anything mechanical than electric. One last thing if sand enters the electric system it might get stuck.
  17. Lekker. Congratulation @Thomas J. Another perfect example of our club structure being there as a guideline and not a restriction. Really happy to see you move to the next level and will be keeping an eye out to make sure we assign you your rightful rank in Carnity. Dank u
  18. Congratulations @Ale Vallecchi. Perfect example of our club structure being there as a guideline and not a restriction. Really happy to see you move to the next level and will be keeping an eye out to make sure we assign you your rightful rank in Carnity.
  19. @Mikhail Lukichev well deserved. It's always a pleasure having you on our drives with that bright smile of yours and a positive outlook. Really impressed with the speed at which you pick sand driving techniques. Hope to have more drives with you this season.
  20. Get of your couch @desertdude, @Frederic is right the @Jas Gajaria has the most awesome looking Pajero in town. He does not use shortcuts when it comes to his ride. I loved the sight and sound of it as it roared into action.
  21. Wow. Seems like an awesome project. I believe the Pajero is a nobody, so not really sure about the chassis correction. But sounds like you know what you're doing. All the best and awaiting feedback from people about a competent garage to carry out this restoration job.
  22. Congrats @Frederic for posting your first drive. Many more to come with me trying to catch up with our favourite Saluki.
