  5. Drive report The challenge began this morning already on the way to the meeting point. It was very foggy and the visibility was pretty bad. I expected some delays from the drivers to reach the meeting point but surprisingly everyone made it on time .... I decided to wait until there was light to start moving and I also hope the fog would clear up as soon as the sun came up but that was not happening. We started moving around 7am and the further we went into the dunes, the worse the visibility became. After about a half an hour into the drive, @Arman announced on the radio that his car had a pop-out so we quickly fixed that and remained our drive. Because of the fog, the sand was wet and hard on top but very soft underneath so it was a tricky terrain to tackle this morning. It also didn't help that I took everyone through some very technical dunes. We had a few refusals, stucks, crests and another pop-out along the way but all in all we had good fun, some amazing team work and a few good laughs. @Jack Thomas did very well as my second lead although he said he was a bit nervous this morning, getting this responsibility. @Atif, @Rajeevan Vickneswaran and @Rizwanm2, thank you so much for all your help shoveling, tugging, fixing pop-outs and keeping the convoy together. Also @Jon M had a bit of a taste of recovering, he had to use the rope twice to give a tug so he was happy ! It was @varunmehndiratta first fewbie drive and he did amazingly well. @Vineeth John Joseph, always a pleasure to have you in my convoy, I don't hear you a lot but that only means that you don't have any problems .... Everyone, well done and I hope to see you again soon !

  10. Drive report It was quite chilly this morning and the heavy wind made it even feel colder than it was. I was happy to have my hoodie en my scarf with me and I had my seat warmers on in the car .... Once everyone arrived and deflated, I did a quick briefing and we started to move. I explained in my briefing that we were going to do some technical terrain first, then a few kilometers on a dirt track before we would reach Faya. We had no issues at all in Suweydan and could keep a good pace so we reached Faya after 1 hour. Luckily it was very quiet at Faya so everyone had a turn to try and make it all the way up from the front. @Salarios @Yusuf Esaf @AlexPol @Jack Thomas @Nivin @Vineeth John Joseph @Karthik Krishnakumar and even @Jon M with the Montero Sport made it up ! He was very impressed with his car and he had a smile from 1 ear to the other !! The 3 Pajero's all had a try but couldn't make it and @Ranjan Das missed a few horses I'm afraid or maybe it was the very heavy tyres on his car, he was a bit disappointed he couldn't make it up but he will make it one day .... After a while, we saw @sertac convoy approaching so we made space and moved on to the bowls behind Faya. It was getting a little more busy in the area with a lot of different other convoys so we had to be careful. Everyone drove very well in and out the bowls and we didn't have any mayor issue just a few refusals which could be handled very easily. After last week's drive with a lot of shoveling, I didn't have to take out my shovel this week ! Thank you @Nivin and @Salarios for all your guidance over the radio, I was lucky to have such good support. I think everyone had a lot of fun, I sure did have a lot of fun, and I hope to see everyone again very soon .....
