As the heat starting up now, we have to start doing more of morning or night drives. 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.

When: 5 May 2017
Meeting time: 4:45 AM, convoy will move sharp at 5:00 AM
Where: First Emarat Petrol station on Dubai - Al Ain Road after Outlet Mall

GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/KD4Lath3cB42

Level of drive: Newbie - Fewbie
Plan: Drive followed by breakfast
What to bring along: Breakfast - whatever you like with little extra to share, water, liquids, smiles, stories, enthusiasm and willingness to learn.

Approximate finish time : 9 AM

I was just waiting for this post and it looks more exciting than when we discussed. I am in with full support.

Just to add to the beauty of the terrain, there are some beautiful high dunes which can be used to play around if time permitting.

Also while mentioning that Gazelles can be spotted in this area, on 2 occasions I have seen Oryx as well as geckos and lizards.

Looking forward to this weekend. Now if only time would just fly by.

      Weather is turning amazing and when hot weather couldn't stop us from burning up the desert, we are not going to let this cooler breeze go to waste. Area 53 is an extension of Bidayer area but with medium - big dunes with sharp rise and fall, at the same time suitable for Newbies to learn and enjoy the medium dune range. Where I would like to have newbies, just in case we have our regular drivers this area is truly perfect for rushing your adrenaline and hone your desert driving controls. This area requires precise control as one moment you climb up with full throttle and second moment you crawl at low rev before hitting the gas again for sideways climbs. 
      This drive is meant for newbie - fewbie level, only if we do not have any newbie drivers the level will be revised to a Fewbie + level.

      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.
