Unfortunately, I won’t be able to join tomorrow, due to mechanical issues. Enjoy and see you next time.

Looking forward to it guys! 

Would it be possible to borrow a radio from someone, by any chance? I’ll bring along a drone as my way to say thanks :-)

We usually have spare radio for an absolute newbie on first come first serve base, but for an exchange of drone footage, I will reserve one from right now 😍

Thanks for the drive yesterday guys! A special thank you to Gaurav for the great tips during our several refusals, and a big thanks to everyone for their patience through them :-)

I've uploaded some drone photos and clips; I wanted to get some of the moving convoy, but that was difficult to do without asking everyone to stop, get the drone out, film, then stop again to get the drone back :-).

See you all next time!

Thanks @Rahimdad for excellent newbie drive and everyone for there great coordination, teamwork and patience that paid very well at side sloping timing (real dessert of the desert). I could see everyone was like a kid after the first attempt to have one more attempt, lol. That's the real fun for offroad that gets the adrenaline rushing for everyone.

Let the trip leader know next time in advance and we can plan such stops for drone shots.

Love your second video of capturing the side sloping attempt of the black wrangler. Perfect angle to focus straight into the action from an aerial view. 👍

      With the season in full swing and amazing cool weather it's time to have another absolute newbie or newbie level drive. All first timer absolute newbie will be given a proper introduction of sand off-roading before they start, from seasoned offroaders having over decades of UAE offroad experience. Idea is to make an absolute newbie comfortable with sand off-roading and in some of the most approachable set of sand dunes in Tawi Nizwa side. It's a perfect drive for people aspiring to start dune bashing or offroading in the sand as a new hobby and wish to explore the UAE offroad, natural beauty and unleash the hidden power of your 4x4 vehicle. For newbies, it's a perfect drive to learn more and advance to fewbie level and start enjoying more advance level drives as per your offroad grades. All experienced members are requested to join in helping newbies by imparting their off-road expertise.
      When: 18 Jan 2019
      Meeting time: 7:00 AM, and convoy will move sharply at 7:15 AM

      Level of drive: All are welcome
      Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 8-10 inches of ground clearance
