The first night drive started many to come as we welcome the Holy month of Ramadan. Thank you @sertac for an amazing experience as we met up at the quad bike rental. After a quick brief and convoy numbering we started the much awaited night drive. With all capable people behind some capable wheels it promised a drive to excite all.

The first step to a wonderful night ahead was climbing the Faya, most of the cars managed it from the front face with @skumar83 just wondering to the top finding a smooth path up without a single bump. As we all reached on top we all took turns to play in the bowl just next to the top. We continued to play in numerous dunes and enjoyed the route @sertac selected beyond words can justify. With @Gaurav in second lead always encouraging Sertac to push his boundaries and continue to explore some fresh dunes.

Some soft patches did make things challenging and we did face some refusals and even some sticks, but we kept the convoy moving at a good pace. We later found some tracks which lead us to the top of Fossil Rocks. With a quick nap and a timely wake up call we started our Suhoor. After a very satisfying Suhoor we started contemplating if we wanted to get out in 5 minutes or 30 minutes. Unanimous decision was to take the long route out. Sertac once again surprised us by taking us through some awesome area undiscovered by us before.

After an awesome day out and a quick inflation and with the sun finally making its debut for the day it was time to head home. Another amazing night out with loads of fun and amazing stories to take back. Quiet but very capably well done @EmVarlet who started our drive with sweets. Thank you to all and looking forward to the Grand Iftar, please sign up.
