  1. @Gaurav we deflated to 0Psi and kept the leaking part facing down, lowered jack then turned full right and left few times. It created a gap between the tire bead and rim bead sitting area which was enough to clean the sand by spraying water. @Mus_hus78 this was a different trip at Hammem towards Liwa 2 weeks prior to Moreeb drive. It was a warm up drive 😃
  2. An old story forever locked up within me! Today, I have decided to get this outstanding drive into words, still not being enough. Driving through liwa dunes every winter is always a pilgrimage journey for me, where I get the chance to explore more, and this time my plan was to pierce the proper liwa dunes. We had attempted the planned track twice before, which we were unable to complete due to reasons. This time, I had planned on starting from Liwa city, towards the moreeb dune where we can find one of the most tallest dune in the UAE and one of the largest hill climbs in the world. On reaching the moreeb dune, my further plan was to return back from where we had started. Returning back to the start point through the slip face was really challenging for me, but surely @Frederic made my plan much easier by sharing a track which helped me execute it better. "Thank you my Freddy boy" It was quite a short distance, around 70km, with extreme challenge being faced. I believe this track could be the maximum level of dunes which can be attained filled with number of pockets, bowls, sharp ridges and massive slip faces which is next to impossible to climb, and of course the unpredictable soft patches. The dune formation in Liwa is totally different from what we usually drive through. Climbing to the top of the dunes is really challenging, and once you reach to the top, the rolling dunes are marvelous, making it really enjoyable to drive on those sets of rolling dunes. We had a very short and sweet convoy @ShereenMK in his Land cruiser was my second lead promptly correcting the tracks whenever i had an obstacle. @Karthikeyan Govindarajan was behind him in his LC followed by @Mus_hus78 with his co pilot Khaleel bhai in his pajero and finally at the end @Rob H with his black panther tundra. I salute you all for driving in one of the most challenging dunes without a single stuck which is really commendable. It was a beautiful morning on February, 27th 2022 and @Rob H was the first one to arrive at the meeting point and he was waiting for us with deflated tyres and flag on. Everyone showed up after me and we all were set to go on time. After safety briefing and few tips from my previous attempts to cross on those monster dunes, we left to explore them. It was really challenging for me to lead the track and find a easy way out through the pockets and soft patches all over the track. I was the only one who got stuck and recovered 3 to 4 times. At one point, at the time of recovery I ended up with flat tyre and after inflating we noticed that the air was escaping through the rim bead. The challenge was to pop out the tyre to clean the sand. I learnt a new technic from @Rob H (Rob Harper) who is by profession a race car expert on how to pop out tyres without moving the vehicle. After a quick fix we reached moreeb dunes prior to the planned time. We all had lot of fun trying to climb the slip face straight up and exit straight down for almost 1 hour. After fulfilling our quench to play and having quick snacks we planned to drive back to the start point which I planned parallel to the track we went. It was really challenging to drive back through slip face but we did it and exited the drive on time by 3pm. It was a wonderful experience for me which is one of my the best desert drive and looking forward to drive in such terrains again. Salute to all of you for your support and for joining the drive and make my dream come true. See you all this winter - "LIWA Returns" And last but most important, would thank my daughter Zaina, who navigated me throughout the drive and has already started reading the dunes.
