What’s New

Sand Storm

Visibility this morning was quite similar to sandstorm, so we had lot of challenges to deal with.

Before briefing we discussed about weak points of each driver, that we have spotted on previous drives. Most of the drivers took it seriously, but some of them will obviously need to work on their skills harder.

Today we started slowly with warm up with extra caution due to poor visibility. Goal was to practice side sloping combined with other techniques from our prospect trainings. We started with small challenges, increasing difficulty level and driving pace. At some point group was falling apart mostly because not keeping proper safety distance. Some members couldn’t pick up pace even we warn them several times. Communication over the radio at some points was dangerously poor.

After two and a half hours of driving some of the drivers started to lose focus and the result was more stopping and second tries.

We all need to take extra mile to keep up with Desert Fellas standards.

At this point of junior level driving it is most important to stay focused and apply advices during the trip. We need to absorb knowledge and apply techniques and skills to our driving. Every word and advice counts.

We had just one stuck, one unfortunate car break down and several second tries.

Sujit did nice escort from the desert and he joined rest of the convoy on certain GPS coordinates. Today he had good test of his skills learned on Recovery and Second lead trainings.

Thank you all for today and looking forward for the next drive.

Hossam and Dennis, congrats for your flags and make us proud!!!

It was an intense fog day to start with. An excellent guidance and training provided by Marko, thank you Marko. Got an experience to take out an injured 🥴 car of one of the fellas and return back to the coordinate point provided. First day to have a sweeper experience. It was fantastic. Every ride there is something new I learn. One of my favorite hobby In life, to learn. The fellas were given a fantastic challenge by Marko. Drive was tough and challenging for some of them, but I am sure they all got the feeling by end of… Read more »
