  1. Hi All, if anyone selling an XK8 in decent driving and cosmetic condition. Pls contact, am interested to buy. Thanks, Andy 0504658200
  2. Hey Ale and all others, love the sound of the drive, but I must withdraw as will be out of country on a last minute getaway. Have fun and I will definitely check the debrief to see where you desertnuts end up. Have fun 👍 and drive safe-ish.
  3. Ale, thanks for the drive, really enjoyed. Was wondering, but during the drive you drove into a pocket that surprised you, ie you didn't expect it. I've also seen the same in other drives with different leads. Was wondering tho, what advice do you give, if you drive into a 'surprise' pocket, do you quickly accelerate out or stop to evaluate. I guess it depends on the pocket's size, but is there a best option. I would just panic, I think, which would be useless.
  4. Rahimdad, pls offer my wait list place to another driver. I have gout and can't really drive so comfortably. Sorry to be a drop out, hoping the place will be filled soon, sure it will. Rgds & safe driving to all, Andy
  5. Took longer to navigate out of Qudra Lakes than we did on the drive. 🤪 Super drive route. Really started getting a good feel for the Pajero and its capabilities on a more demanding drive. Thanks Lorenzo and all.
  6. Hi Chaitanya, pls be so kind as to offer my drive spot to a wait listed member. I messed up and did the Lasalli drive this morning with Lorenzo and Richard, I didn't double check the dates. So sorry for any inconvenience, but I am sure that somebody will take the slot. My Paj can't manage two back to back drives I think. Needs a little tarmac time. Look forward to next time, Andy
  7. Super drive, thanks to all. Great biryani banter. Thanks to Rahimbhai and all senior drivers. Some pics: When the general is stuck, everybody digs (unless of course you have a bad back)
  8. It seems there are a few wait listed ppl here. I have injured my back today. If my slot can be filled easily, I will withdraw, if not I will attend. Jus let me know. I prefer not to leave a group last minute, but if someone is available for slot, then is fine.
  9. I am really sorry Asif, but something has come up that rules me out for Friday. Sincere apologies for any inconvenience.
  10. Hey Atarmid, I opted to get rid at a sml loss. Sold as seen. I kind of lost trust in the product after that. The repair quotes ranged from 6k to 27k. I sold it and bought an equivalent Paj. I would recommend that to anyone. It's a shame because I love the heritage of the LR brand. I wish I'd bought a desert ready LR2, but I guess that's Harry Hindsight for you.
  11. Jeez, the beeping drives me nuts, it's not like I don't wear or want to wear seat belt, I do, most the time. But if I'm going from point A to point B in a wadi or something it's driving me crazy. Any tips or advice, can it be disabled / disconnected. Thanking in advance, Andy
  12. Super drive today. So different without seeing another single convoy out there, think group must try to keep this exploration area a secret as long as possible. @Ale Vallecchi really enjoyed the relaxed and reassuring guidance during the route. @Chaitanya obviously aware of new Fewbies, did a great job keeping guidance plain and simple. Would have loved to have seen that soft bowl you got swallowed by, it looked tricky. And @Foxtrot Oscar thank you also for your soothing support. Really like the route and area, thinking will be ideal for a desert camp now cooler weather finally arrived. P
