So this weekend let's start with an early morning drive in some of the best newbie - fewbie terrain in the whole UAE: Lisalli to Margham area. Best known for open dunes, gazelle sighting and very good mix of small to medium range of dunes to set everyone pulses racing. As it's a morning time, so we will be pressed to finish before 9 AM to avoid the scorching heat, that is bad for us and our cars so I expect everyone to be punctual if they are signing up for this morning run.

Gaurav posted a topic in Meet up and Drives - Off-road / ScenicWith every carnity drive setting newbie level higher and higher, so this week demands bit more challenging and thrilling terrain of Murqquab to Lisalli. It's a combination of various set of dunes from small - med - large, where smaller takes the name of nasty technical dunes and big dunes demand good momentum to continue riding until you are through to a flat area. This time I plan to introduce ridge riding, slip face attack and side sloping. These all three are expert level skills, but we will start learning these in the intermediate terrain to give time to absorb and react. This area is very famous for Gazelle sighting so riding with your best long range camera is highly advisable. When: 17 March 2017 Meeting time: 12:30 PM Starting time: 01:00 PM (SHARP) soon after Friday prayer Where: Mosque inside the Marqquab area.
