DESERT RISING 2
An early gathering and a cool desert breeze provided a refreshing start to today’s drive.
The drive got off to a slow start, like it usually does in this particular area. The convoy slowly snaked it’s way around and over technical dunes and ploughed through soft sand in shallow bowls. This section of the route required constant momentum to avoid getting stuck, and all Fellas did a brilliant job of managing the torque of their vehicles at a level that allowed them to maintain a steady flow for the first half of the drive.
A few minutes into the second half, Marko found an area that was suitable to teach a Cresting Lesson. All the Fellas got to start off the lesson by practice trottle control. This excersise brought out the animal in everyone and there were big smiles all around. Thereafter the cresting began in earnest, and this is most certainly the part of today’s drive that the Fellas will dream about until their next drive. The entire convoy managed the challenges with good control. There were a few second tries and a stuck in this part of the drive, but that was expected considering the nature of the crests. It’s truly encouraging seeing the progress that the Fellas are making with each drive.
Keep the sand flying.
