  1. @Rahimdadbhai - thanks for the write up...i didnt feel like i missed much as i could just visualize the rest of the trip through the report . My car was fine that night as i was able to drive back home but 2 days later the check engine light did show up again after which, i took it to a garage and they realized the throttle body was a bit messy. They cleaned it up and now the car is back to working condition.
  2. @Gauravbhai...sure thing ill inform the new guy.
  3. @Rahimdadbhai, theres an absolute newbie fried of mine who would like to join us for this drive. He too drives an xterra. Would you recommend he join?
  4. You are probably right as I don’t know the difference between side sloping or side cresting. Difficult to explain with words so I’ll show you guys when we meet this weekend.
  5. What a night! it was a fun filled adventurous drive indeed. @Frederic yes thanks for pointing out that i need to be vocal when i am lost. Why i went mum, was because I realized that @Roshan Abraham was stuck on the other side anyways and since i had a fair idea of where he was located, and since the convoy would stop to recover him, i thought i could try and get out of that sticky spot by myself. Else, if the convoy was moving on, i would have definitely radio'ed in seeking assistance Besides that, I loved the side cresting exercises as it gave me a good chance to work on those skills. Tackling soft sand is still a tough one for me as i am still trying to figure out at what point and how much gas i need to apply. And on this night, i made my second ever attempt at climbing iftar bowl and yet again i failed. But when @Rahimdad bhai attempted the same with my car and he wasn't able to make it straight up (he eventually did with an alternate route) i was a bit relieved 😜 Definitely looking forward to more drives and to eventually climb off-road ranks (and dunes effortlessly) with this awesome group.
  6. Hi @Gauravbhai, just a small doubt - since you mentioned we will be starting from dubai and exiting in sharjah but the meeting point is the adnoc station in maleha road which is technically sharjah right?
  7. hi @Gauravbhai and @Rahimdadbhai, @Roshan Abraham is a friend of mine and he would like to join us for the upcoming drive. kindly advise eligibility as he is an experienced driver and i do believe he will be able to keep up with the pace but need you both to approve.
  8. i am not sure if i qualify for this pace or not. @Rahimdadbhai and @Gaurav bhai, since you both know my level, do advise if i am suitable for this drive
  9. Although these points are usually taken fro granted, it is ncie that we have it all charted out in a format like this so that we can always refer in the future also incase we forget. Thanks @Gaurav
  10. Another exciting and fun drive. I must say, this being my 3rd night drive, I am slowly beginning to get a hang of driving in the night as I found it a bit challenging at first. I would like to take this opportunity to say that us newbies/fewbies are surely learning a lot under the tutelage of the marshals - @Gauravbhai, @Rahimdadbhai, @Srikumar and @Emmanuel - Thanks for your support and patience. It is truly and highly appreciated.
