  1. I am coming rather late in the day to the post drive report - life has a way of getting in the way of things. This was a drive of a few parts. As ever, the technical. This seemed to cause more problems than I expected. At Febie Plus level, the expectation is that drivers are capable of getting themselves through some 'light technical' dunes. This band of dunes at the start of a Faqa drive are optional. We can drive around them, or drive through them. Our newbie drives drive round this band of dunes. A Fewbie Plus should be able to navigate through the dunes within 20 minutes. We took an hour! After that the route to Solar Park is all about wider higher dunes, ridges and slide slopes. I hoped we might get further than Solar Park but we did have quite a lot of refusals and stucks along the way. What to do? Fewbie Plus is a bit like the challenging teenage years. Drivers are in between getting the basics right and becoming accomplished at self recovery and adrenalin filled drives. It requires concentration, it requires focus and it requires putting what you learned until that point into practice. It also requires the patience from the leaders and the support that things will go wrong and you need to factor into the timing that that will happen. As one of the drivers mentioned - we covered 8km in the first 1.5 hours and 35km in the last hour! Once you get into the swing of the drive it gets easier - but at Fewbie Plus you should be prepared for action from the first minute. Looking forward to seeing you all again soon. Thanks to @Jeandre Bezuidenhout and @Kalahari - you guys were amazing and amazingly patient.

  4. It's a 6.30 start. I saw it, yes. After publishing the drive list. Your withdrawal was less than 24 hours before the drive. Otherwise, you would not have been included.
  5. You've just been promoted. You can join the drive Thomas. @Thomas VargheseVarghese we had a cancellation.

On this occasion, the convoy and terrain did not make that make sense. I hope it does not change your enjoyment of the drive. See you all at 6.30 at the start point. @Thomas Varghese - seems you found another drive, so hope it's OK we did not add you here.
  7. Wow. That's news. I understand now why you were looking for new options. good luck with that. Come April there will be a lot of inexpensive cars on the market.
  8. If it's under warranty it's not something I would advise. This is the problem with these vehicles that the party's take time off you want genuine.
  9. Thank you for your enthusiasm Junaid. Convoy positions and numbers have a number of variables so we cannot confirm any positions until the final convoy is sorted and we have given thought to the likely routing.

You're in. Confirmed for the drive. If anyone pulls out, @Thomas Varghese waits in the wings for your spot on the drive. Get yourselves prepared for a fast paced, relatively high octane ridge riding, criss crossing extravaganza. Faya has lovely technical dunes, some fantastic long range ridges to ride and some of the highest dunes in the region. The rest, as they say, is up to you. See you soon in the sand.
