  1. I was about to post my own drive report but @JeromeFJhas provided such a concise and detailed report that I think we should leave it there. @Vasja Zupan@Ameera AlMarzooqi @CEdric Rodrigues @Paul OR @Krishna R @shailendra singh vilkhu @Sam H Thank you all for arriving to the meeting point so promptly. This drive was all about the basics, I chose a route that gave you a flavour of just about everything you will meet whilst desert driving.(to varying degrees) We had tight technical dunes which required good control and finesse. I’m amazed none of you got too stuck in there! Well done. We crossed (up and over) fair sized ridges that demonstrated to you how much momentum you need to get up and over a dune. There were some steep drops which showed the need to cover your brake, and keep your wheels straight when you descend. Finally, we had the wide-open spaces of the long-range dunes that allowed you climb and turn , creating nice sweeping horseshoes as we did. I think this is the first time at this level I haven’t seen someone side stuck. Great Job. We did have some stucks, and we embraced every single one of them. I mean it when I say that you will learn more by getting yourself unstuck than anything else. Self recovery is an artform , and it is truly wonderful to see. Many many thanks to @JeromeFJfor his excellent support and to @soumyasaklanifor being the perfect second lead.
  2. Good evening fellow adventurers, I'm looking forward to meeting with you all tomorrow for our rendezvous in the sand!

If so please clarify 3) Does your vehicle have front and back towpoints ? This is mandatory before being eligible to join. Tools Needed For your very first drive with us, we would like to ask you to bring a pressure gauge, deflator tool, and a compressor to inflate your tyres after the drive. (the one near the gas station is usually defective). The next tools you will be needing from second drive onwards, are a walkie-talkie, off-road flag, and a decent shovel. If by any chance you have these tools already you are of course welcome to bring them along on your first drive. Welcome aboard!
  6. Drive Report There’s a reason I give up my free time and volunteer to take a crowd of people I don’t know from Adam out into the desert . Today’s drive was that reason! Give yourselves a massive pat on the back because by goodness did you earn your desert stripes today with a side sloping fiesta in Mahafiz! 👏 We started off gradually and slowly but surely, every single driver, upped their game, time and time again until you were pulling the most audacious side slopes, I think we saw one fishtail the whole day!!! What was the most pleasing aspect for me personally is that you all self recovered brilliantly, and steered down when you had to! @Laura Conesa you started off a bit tentatively, as to be expected on a first Newbie drive, but I think the self recovery really helped your confidence and you didn't look back, Great job. @Murad Hamedgreat drive today, flawless, took everything in your stride and handled your car well, Clearly nor your first time in the sand my friend, Nice driving. @karim hamandiAnother who had a flawless drive, you were getting used to your car's power too. Really nice driving. @Yerem DavtyanI'm glad you managed to join us, it was great to see you handle the 96 Tahoe out there, Well done. @Han Very nice driving my friend, one slightly sticky moment but you responded and self recovered well. Well done! @Sree - FortunerExcellent drive Sree, another who had a flawless drive and self recovered. @Mo.A pleasure driving with you, you;;re really handling the jeep well and with finesse too. Well done @Andrew McCarthyYou don't half put that Pajero through its paces mate. Great driving! Oh and your first tug in the desert too. Lucky you @SivakumarSiva, you are my star of the day, What an absolute pleasure it was to watch you grow in confidence as the drive progressed. Your self-recovery on the side slope was excellent, and you didn't need to do it again because the fear was gone and you knew the momentum would carry you. Honestly, what a champion! Love it! @Siddharth guptaMy quiet champion! Sitting there at the back, floating that leviathan of yours around those dunes without breaking a sweat and on your second drive!! What a drive my friend, well done! A massive thank you to my excellent support today, @Archibald Jurdi, great to see you mate after such a long time and thanks for the excellent 2nd lead. @Alex Raptorwho was sweeping at the back, offering advice and pulling it out as he loves to do in the desert , My De Facto Centre forward @Danish Mohammad, an absolute pleasure to drive with you again, and a wonderful job done in support, thank you, and @Janarthanmy fellow xman ! Great to have you as the flying sweep! Finally thank you to all of you for being such an utterly fantastic convoy, for listening to my instructions, following them and indulging me in one of my favourite things. Until our next adventure 😎
