It's time to call another newbie level family adventure desert drive ending with bbq, chit-chat and jokes.

Especially for the folks who missed this last month, here is the chance to recap. Secondly for many of you waiting desperately for newbie desert drive to get the sand bug, this will be the perfect drive for all who wants to enjoy nice day drive in moderately easy desert terrain.

The beauty of this area, the wide open dunes, and with the occasional sighting of wildlife like gazelles and oryx are all reasons to set your pulses racing. The plan would be to meet up at 2:00 pm as per the below link and then head out to have some awesome fun through terrain that will leave you wanting more, and we will end it with a good spot to sit around and have a BBQ session with chats about the drive, general talk and share some jokes.

Thank you Gaurav bhai for posting it early for more people to learn about the drive and join in on this amazing area.

Just one request, it is my mom's birthday on 25 March and I would love to celebrate it with all. I will try to convince my wife for bringing my mom to the finish point in her Pajero as my mom cannot make it through the dunes with her back operation. While we head out through the beautiful dunes and meet them up at the finish point and start our celebrations. I will try to confirm the plan and let you all know in a couple of days time.

I hope this is fine with all.

It will be an honor for us to meet your mom Rahim bhai and I'm fine to bring the convoy out alone if in case you need to push early to guide your wife. Looking forward for this great family get together drive.

Just to accommodate our lovely member's as much as we can, I have created the poll on top of this drive post. Myself and Rahim bhai are fine with both options of Friday and Saturday. Let's wait and see what other's like.

Btw, people neutral with both the dates can vote on both as poll set as multiple choices option.

I voted for both days, as @Gaurav bhai put it, I am OK for both days, we just want to be there for everyone. So lets wait and see what the majority vote for. I remember a few people inquiring if we had drives on Saturday, lets wait and see if they respond and that might become the deciding factor.

Just to decide in time we have to put an end date for this poll to conclude by 21 March, Tuesday by 12 noon.

In case you are only interested for bbq at Qudra lake, then you can join directly there by road without the offroad drive.

Please vote for your choices in time if you are interested @jason200 @wingnut @Radhika @presism @Mujtaba @Kavin @govind @evoboy2016 @ChiragD @Sunny dhanak @Jeh @Indresh Navlani @stelita @vivian @manums @hAwX

      After last week's adrenaline drive through Area 53, this week would be a relaxed newbie drive in our much-loved sandbox - Maliha - Fossil rock - Faya. Looking forward to an easy relaxing drive for everyone with plenty of opportunities to learn and grow, hill climb, and ridge riding. Newbies and Fewbies will have great chance to see and learn the real fun that off-roading offers in a very safe and organized environment. Level May be changed upon convoy level.
      When: 27 April 2018
      Meeting time: 02:00 pm, convoy will move at sharp 02:15 pm
      Where: Adnoc Petrol Station Maleha Road
      GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/mzb26kxzte72
      Level of drive: Newbie - Fewbie - All are welcome
      Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 10 inches of ground clearance.
      Plan: Drive, train and enjoy till about 11 am
      What to bring along: Loads of snacks, plenty of water - whatever you like with little extra to share, water, liquids, smiles, stories, enthusiasm and willingness to learn.
      Approximate finish time: 7 pm

      As the weather is getting better, let's have an easy fewbie level drive from Lisalli fort to Qudra lake and end up with a relaxing get-together or bbq session if anyone like. The beauty of this area, the wide open dunes, and with the occasional sighting of wildlife like gazelles and oryx are all reasons to set your pulses racing. The plan would be to meet up at 2:00 pm as per the below link and then head out to have some awesome fun through terrain that will leave you wanting more, and we will end it with a good spot to sit around Qudra lake and have a BBQ session with chats about the drive, general talk and share some jokes.

      The Islamic New Year is supposed to be falling on Thursday, 21 September, so lets take advantage. Plus with the weather getting better it will be only cooler on top.
      The RAK mountain range which always are few degrees lesser than the other areas. Get ready to enjoy some of best snaky curved road making up to the to this grand Hajar mountain range. With last time's experience we can reach close to the top to enjoy the view from both sides of the mountain and enjoy the sea view. This drive will offer plenty of photo opportunity for the shutterbugs, so make sure to carry your best camera and long range lens.
      Plan is to start late afternoon and finish whenever we feel we have had enough to escape the heat and yet have our holiday dose of fun and adrenaline. With this timing we will also eliminate the usual rush at this newly developing tourist site. So please be on time, as we are really pressed on time so if you are late then you have to catch up by yourself.
      If anybody would like to bring along snacks, drinks, BBQ, playing cards, music box or any means of entertainment and fun is most welcome to join.
