  1. No details in the announcement, just “traffic fines”, so I suppose it‘s not limited to cameras.
  2. Good news for Sharjah drivers: https://gulfnews.com/uae/transport/50-discount-on-traffic-fines-in-sharjah-1.1571737717605
  3. As it looks like the new season has really started, with the weather getting much better, this drive should be very pleasant. Absolute Newbies are most welcome, however if no beginner sign up we might up the level, depending on the convoy response. This time the drive will take place in Tawi Nazwa/Pink Rock area, which is the perfect environment to learn and grow in a very safe way, but also offers to more advanced off-roaders a few spots to play and test their skills. Also, if time allows, we might continue to Big Red. When: 1 November 2019 Meeting time: 5:30 AM sharp for Absolute Newbies (first timers with Carnity won't be allowed to join the drive if they can't attend the entire briefing) and 6:00 AM sharp for Newbies and above. 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: Drive, train and enjoy till about 10:00 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: 10:00 AM Please RSVP on the below calendar.

  5. Thanks @Frederic for this nice share. I would add an axe to cut wood sticks when there is a lot of trees available around your camp (If you are not in a protected area of course)
  6. Not a wadi, but I would add to the must do list in Oman Al-Jabal al-Akhdar. Breathtaking views up there (access by a new and very clean road but only 4x4 are allowed due to the strong inclines)
  7. Friday morning after our drive in Sweihan, we noticed a redish oil leak on the ground under my Xterra model X 2012 (driver side). Our first thought with @Gaurav and @Javier M was transmission fluid, but after checking the level, color and smell, it seemed OK. Then I noticed that the steering fluid was lower than normal. The car is running totally normal and I don't have any light signal on my dashboard. Yesterday I took it for a quick visit to a mechanic and, after confirming it was power steering related, he told me that I have to change the PS rack - which is quite expensive. I would like to ask the experts here : does a steering fluid leak really require to change the all rack ? Could it be only joints or rubbers for example ? I know it's hard to answer without seeing the car, but in theory ?
  8. Sure. I checked with Javier, see you tomorrow morning.
  9. @Atif As it is an intermediate level drive, I think you signed up for the wrong event. Hope to see you soon !
