  1. My humble and first attempt at video editing https://youtube.com/shorts/0kXEakKhA0M?feature=share
  2. @Lorenzo Candelpergher@Mario Cornejo, @Rawad, @Alain Canivet-Abikhalil, @JeromeFJ, @Chinthaka Ruwan, @Arman, @Ranjan Das, @Russ, @Shaaz Sha, @Thomas Varghese here you go, the drone shot I took.
  3. Hope everyone enjoyed our drive today and possibly improved their driving a bit (i know i did). We started our drive at 5:15am and exited at 9:30am. Got caught in some technical dunes on the way out, and opted to exit earlier than planned so we can stick to our planned finish time. In total we covered 72kms at an average moving speed of 20 km/h, decent speed for a FB drive. Everyone did very well i must say. @Tareck had his first pop-out, which i hope was good learning. @Russ kindly accepted to run as Center Forward, which i believe he enjoyed. And a big thanks to @Jeepieand @Nabil Bishara for their support. Hope to see all you of you again in the sand soon. @Ben84@darren thompson @Zixuan Huang@Hardik Mody@Sunil Mathew@Warren Flay

  13. Thanks to everyone who joined @Wrangeld drive last Friday morning, which he kindly let me lead a (large) part of. Leading is lots of fun and I encourage whoever is aiming to progress within the club to get to that level. The entire convey did very well and we managed to cover a decent 62km at an average moving speed of 20km/h, completed in the 4 hours planned for our drive. And the trip would not have been fun had it not been for a couple of ‘crestings’ and ‘stucks’, all providing a chance for our collective learning and improvement. And congats @Watteau for new winch, which was useful when we got stuck in soft sand. @I.M.Shousha إسلام أبوشوشة hope you managed to get your rear bumper fixed; this is a common JL issue with the number plate pointing downwards and sometimes digging into the sand on your way up and down longer dunes. And Thanks @thomasvarghese for sharing all the great photos. Looking forward to seeing many of you on the sand next week as well.
