  1. Congratulations for the new baby, @Craig Finlayson! Usually car noise and vibrations facilitate sleep in kids... You should take him/her offroading!! 😂😂😂
  2. Dear Extreme Drivers, @Ahab Shamaa, @Shaaz Sha, @Ilya, @Francois Germishuys, @Christian Andras, @Kalahari, @Craig Finlayson, just in case you didn't notice, the drive location / route has been changed from this morning Whatsapp message. No more Faya to Fossil Rock: we will be doing a much more extended 80km "drive it all" whopper drive from Maleha to Shuwaib, via Fossil Rock, Faya, Suwaidan, Pink Rock, Big Red, Suhail Dune. Are you in?
  3. Congratulations for your promotion @Alain Canivet-Abikhalil, very well deserved. I look forward to see again your 32 teeth smile while chasing my tail in our next FB+ drive. A taste of the pace you had it already in Faqa.. 😂😂

  5. Drive Brief This Extreme Drive is meant to be a high speed adventure across the longest possible stretch of red sand desert available in the Emirate of Sharjah, covering the ambitious distance of over 80km from Maleha to Shuwaib, going through the most coveted off-roading areas in the emirate, all packed in a single high-pace, high-adrenaline, whopper "all-you-can-drive" experience. We will start in Maleha, approaching, for starters, the "Maleha Terraces" and the nice, big bowls of Tawi Khatimah, on the east hillside of Fossil Rock. We will then head south, passing by Fossil Rock, Came

    Drive Details Level: Intermediate and Above (All Levels) When: 26 Jun 2021, Saturday. Meeting time: 5:00 AM (SHARP - Without any exceptions) Meeting Point: Al Badayer Exit - E44 Dubai - Hatta Road - https://goo.gl/maps/JkhE9hDwve8mkkU99 Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 8-10 inches of ground clearance.

  7. Drive Brief The famous Area 53, the pyramid-like dune formation belonging to the portion of Al Badayer situated on the south-west side of the E44 Dubai - Hatta Road, offers a great deal of opportunities for off-roaders willing to put their dune climbing skills to the test. With this in mind, this particular drive is aimed at attempting to reach a specific goal, i.e. recording an overall ascent (i.e. the total elevation gain/loss) in excess of +1000/-1000m, which will require a great deal of climbs and descents for the large part of the drive. This first ascent will be straight forward
  8. Dear @Tero Vallas, I'm saddened to know you'll be leaving us, but happy to read you'll have some other great passion to fill your weekends. I'll miss your quiet but sure and experienced driving at the back of the convoy. Good luck with your new professional challenges but most importantly with your passion of a lifetime: may it fill all your acrobatic weekends as much as @Carnity did. And if you ever come back to Dubai on a business or leisure trip, plan half a day off and give us a shout, so we can plan a drive to remember the good old times!
  9. DRIVE REPORT Dear Desert Wanderers, I have always loved the Fossil Rock - Faya daytime drive, but I must say its night version exceeded by far my expectations. The whole convoy was extremely punctual at the meeting point at Khatam, so by 7:04 we were already in the sand. We immediately made our way up east, to reach the highest possible viewpoint from the rocky hillside of Fossil Rock, but once again our expectations to have a glance at a red sunset on red sand had were not satisfied, as the horizon was foggy (the great heat of the season doesn't help) and the sun had alrea
  10. Dear Desert Wanderers, this RSVP is now closed. Please find below the convoy order for our drive: Should @GauravSoni not confirm his presence, the convoy order will remain unmodified, with @JeromeFJ following directly @Darren Brooke in position no. 6. @Werno, @RooRzOn, @Abdul Rahman AK, @Darren Brooke, @Gaurav Soni, @JeromeFJ, @Lakshmi Narasimhan, @Danish Mohammad, @Russ, @MUHAMMAD Kashif RAZZAQ, this drive is going to be quite demanding from a technical point of view due to the additional complexity coming with the limited visibility. It will require a great deal o
  11. Dear @Danish Mohammad, @JeromeFJ, @Abdul Rahman AK, @Lakshmi Narasimhan, @Werno, @Russ, @RooRzOn, you are confirmed for this drive. @Darren Brooke, @GauravSoni, you are waitlisted for your 2nd drive. Have a nice week!
  12. Congratulations @Marwan HaddadHaddad, looking forward to the next Fewbie drive with you!
