Amazing drive team.
Since the start, @Hisham Masaad was in the mood to push us to our (and cars) limits; I was struggling to keep up with his pace, and had to forget everything and keep my foot on the gas pedal to be able to climb these dunes.
The coffee break + dates (not planned) was most welcome. I wish we could have more breaks like this in the future drives as it helped to have all of us getting together and really enjoying a break.
@Ranjan Das mate I hope that you will be able to get the Jeep fixed in no time; I understood that you were stressing out with the car - keep the faith mate. I am sure that you will back in the sand in no time.
@Karthik Raptor mate you show-cased the power of the V8 while pulling the Jeep through the dunes. I am not sure what we could have done without you. BIG THANKS buddy.
@Islam Soliman good to see you again mate. I felt that your presence and calm provided all of us that extra peace of mind and direction while WE were all trying to find the shortest and easiest way out of the dunes to get to the meeting point for Ranjan to be able to call the recovery truck. Your coordination and understanding with @Hisham Masaad was great.
@Waqas Parvez @ASAD. @Mohamad Anwer @Simon Dawood @Sunil Mathew @MMansoor @Abdelghani @Vaibhav you all contributed to an amazing drive, which was short but sweet. I am looking forward to drive with the same team in the near future.
Finally - it made me realised that we all leave our family in the morning (or afternoon) to come and enjoy a bit of sand and dunes, and that sometimes things do not go as planned. The incident with @Ranjan Das car was a reminder for all of us that we should keep taking this as a hobby between buddies, and help each other when and where we can. We all got together as a TEAM, and each of ones contributed positively in every way to this incident.
@Carnity is not only a club for me (and for us); it is an opportunity for us to get together on a regular basis, enjoy a couple of dunes, and then sit down and enjoy a coffee.
On a side note, I managed to get my RTA approval today. I had to replace the valvetronic with the stock muffler yesterday. As I am writing, the garage is busy putting back the new muffler.
