  2. Drive Brief After the first successful edition, the "Slip Face of Al Qudra" drive is back. A fast paced, action packed re-visiting of the well known areas of Al Qudra Desert, where the drive level will be pushed to intermediate with lots of opportunities to practice ridge-riding, crest breaking and criss-crossing skills along with frequent dives and occasional climbs on the slip face of high and long range dunes, all mixed with a couple of highly technical small dunes stints.

    Drive Details Level: Intermediate and Above (All Levels) When: 17 Apr 2021, Friday.

  5. Drive Brief The stretch of desert around Lisaili offers infinite possibilities for desert off-roaders, ranging from small, super-technical dunes to long range, almost endless ridges. This drive will offer a taste of all these terrains, alternating more challenging technical stints to faster and more "driven" ones. There is however a specific place, where dunes become so high and so big that they well deserve to be named the "Mighty Lisaili Dunes". A majestic conformation which will be the perfect playground for breath-taking climbs and arduous passages, combined with neverending slideslopes

    Drive Details Level: Fewbie and Above (All Levels) When: 16 Apr 2021, Friday. Meeting time: 6:00 AM (SHARP - Without any exceptions) Meeting Point: Tawi Nazwa - https://goo.gl/maps/PnUGGLyxkKXzz3NEA Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 8-10 inches of ground clearance. What to bring along: Loads of water, snacks (for yourself), smiles, face mask, rubber gloves, enthusiasm, willingness to learn and your own compressor for tire inflation. Approximate finish time: 10:00 AM
  7. Drive Brief This drive is a classic, but because it is a classic, it never ends being fascinating. From Tawi Nazwa, heading North East, we will drive towards the rising sun, moving gently from small and easy dunes to larger and more challenging ones as we approach Pink Rock. We will then climb the rock itself to appreciate the true meaning of its name, while enjoying the spectacular view from the top. Moving south, we will increase our pace going through an exciting series of convoluted, diversified and fun dunes that will take us in the majestic Big Red, after which we will make our exit on
  8. Dear Desert Wanderers, It hurts a bit to be grounded in Europe for what was meant to be my own drive.. But I'll be in spirit with you. I'm sure @Ale Vallecchi will make it an excellent and entertaing drive today, toghether with @Yousef Alimadadi! Have fun, be safe and learn a bit more at every turn! Ciao!
  9. Dear Desert Wanderers, this RSVP is now closed. Unfortunately, due to the need to extend a business trip in Europe, I won’t be able to lead this drive and @Ale Vallecchi kindly accepted to take over the lead, for which he has my gratitude. Please find below the convoy order: @Humayun Ghias, @Mobeen Anwar, @soumyasaklani, @Pacific, @Ahab Shamaa, @I.M.Shousha إسلام أبوشوشة, @Serafino, @rajeshkumar rathod, @MUHAMMAD Kashif RAZZAQ, @Ale Vallecchi, @Yousef Alimadadi, this drive is going to be fun but, since many of you are new to Fewbie level, it will also be technically
  10. @VipinShetty, are you still interested in this drive? If not, I'll enroll the next waitlisted, i.e. @MUHAMMAD Kashif RAZZAQ
  11. Dear @Thomas Varghese, I'm very happy to see you finally made it to intermediate. You, more than others, deserve to be congratulated for the great motivation and commitment which you have put in pursuing your objectives, even when things didn't go the way you had been hoping for and when ambitions had to come to terms with reality. For you, more than others, the Carnity journey has implied a great and positive transformational challenge, and - as @Wrangeld noted - now with the rank now come responsibilities and accountability. I look forward to have you with me in one of my next IM

  14. Drive Brief An enjoyable fewbie drive through the less known but most fascinating long range dunes in the south part of Al Qudra. There will be plenty of chances to practice smooth ridge-riding and side sloping, with some breath-taking straight up / straight down crossing of high dunes, all mixed with a couple of a bit more technical smaller dunes stints. General Infos This drive is organized in full compliance with the COVID19 guidelines. We expect every member that joins this drive to go through below information and and strictly follow these guidelines in order not to jeop
  15. @Niki Patel, the car mentioned by @Luca Palanca Falsini is correct. My Y62 will be out of the game for some time due to some repairs with parts that have very, very, very long lead time (ie several months) from Nissan in Japan. Meanwhile, I couldn't stay grounded forever, so I got myself a new drive on the dark side. When the Y62 is back, I'll have to face the dilemma about which car to drive, even though my wife is claiming the Y62 as the family car. See you tomorrow.
