    well it's now over 48hrs, and I did go to the doctor per @Gaurav & @Srikumar's recommendation. Doc said since no vomitting, no broken ribs, no blurry vision and no pain whatsoever, she declared me fit to drive & work again 🙂

    I would rather focus on the positive things and the good lucks, so here they are:

    • alhamdulillah I managed to return home unharmed, thanks to every single one in the convoy, I pray God bless you all for your kindness.
    • thanks to my trip marshal @Srikumar for leading the team during the incident. There were other younger blood he could direct & delegate to, but he chose to unroll his sleeves and in the process hit his head against my rear bumper (luckily it's stock fibre... imagine if it's the Y62 with 4mm steel 😱)  
    • it was good luck @Haitham Khattab pushed himself to join the drive eventhough he overslept and started driving at 5:30am. For his presence helped a lot, as we needed an Arabic speaker to translate and bridge the communication with the police.
    • i had a nice recovery driver who shared me his Naan & vegetables lunch
    • in short, eventhough it was an unfortunate incident, I am thankful and happy with the people who surrounded me & helped.

    Thanks for asking @Tom B @Rob S @ASAD. , not my first rollover with perfect landing on all 4 wheels, so the shocks were subdued a bit 😅, but nevertheless humbles and amazes me how we're given second..eh i mean... fourth chance. My wife reminded to watch the latest Puss in the Boots movie  😂

    And this is the finale good news: only Windshield (500dhs second-hand) + Front Right Fender (300dhs second-hand) + Front Right Passenger Door (300dhs second-hand) are badly damaged. According to the Denting Specialist, the roof can be fixed without replacing the whole roof. I'll probably start a thread on the LC 10K bring-to-life restoration project 😄

    @Zed sorry to hear about the unfortunate incident... Alhamdulillah you are safe and...  Hope to see youbsoon with you monster LC soon. 👍

    Hope @Haitham KhattabKhattab. Is an expert in dealing with abu dhabi police now... 😜

    Well managed @M.Seidam, taking the time to analyze the situation, and putting in place what is required to limit the stress on the vehicles, and the risks for everyone !

    I was stuck in similar situation in my last drive, and managed to get out thanks to the capabilities of the car :)

    But I realize afterwards that it would have been difficult to recover. I will keep in mind your step by step approach for the next one !



    Nice one @JeromeFJ.  Rear diff lock is real gem in this kind of situations.

    Dear Friends 

    @Carnity @Imteeaz @Arda Yagcioglu ( pict and clip curtesy to you thank you ) @Lawrence_Chehimi @Gok Krish

    keeping this thread Alive I put this from Sweihan drives V 

    I got wedged as you see in the picture below after shoveling the sand wall from behind the rear tires and right front and made it to be prepared for what comes next . I asked @Imteeaz to go back and forth from where he is supposed to recover me to prepare a track for him self . After that 4 ropes connected ( 50 meters ) and I was redirected . Comments are welcome always so we can always learn develop and improve 




    Hats off @M.Seidam... Well executed recovery with precise instruction.. 👏
