Sandland – Report

Almost everyone was ready to roll at 5:55am except for one coming from really far so we understand, let keep the timing.

After a quick brief on cresting and safety points, we shifted to low range and hit the sand at 6:20. The first stuck (double) of the day happened pretty quickly but then we some got moment just as quick.

Lots of smooth creating, switching and side sloping with some second tries and a few more stucks we covered 38km in total before the exit.

Chefmarc
Welcome back and thank you for spotless second lead, directing the convoy a few times and helping with the double recovery.

Preggy
Well done today and congratulation on earning your offroader status, you did really well, just refine the tap tap technique.

Mike
Welcome back in the sand after a few months away. Once you get to know your new beast I’m sure you will be totally flawless

Ratica
You are improving with each drive, well done today. A bit more practice on sitting on the crest and you will have this technique perfected.

Saluh
Great drive not much to say about the strong guy in the middle of the convoy.

Pradeep
Still a crazy guy! Please respect the gravity, but well done today.

S1d
Nice driving today, keep it up.

Gonzo

I must say driving in this group is becoming real pleasure. People understand each other, playing by same rules. You are making such a nice team all together. Driving by intelligence, mutual respect and understanding. This is what I was dreaming for. Thank you all for taking part in this trip and looking forward to drive more.

Wow!!! An amazing drive with fabulous people. Every time I think that I have this’ll cresting thing down, there’s a new approach or the shape is tricky – it really is a balance of momentum and control. Thank you Marko for all the practice opportunities and the knowledge on how to approach the crest, sit on the crest and tap tap tap along the crest. I’ve climbed up fossil Rock many times but it was the first time doing it via cresting and that soft sand…. I had to drive it like I stole it. As always the crew were… Read more »

I second Marko regarding the dynamics of the group and the driving ability displayed on this trip. The drive was really fluid with the occasional pause for a second try. I could be completely wrong here, but I’d hazard a guess that one of the signs of a mature group would be that the ratio of rescues to second tries would be minuscule. This was certainly the case on Friday. As we headed out of the desert Marko went cresting crazy and crested every dune that had cresting potential, with me hot on his tail. I’m certain that it was… Read more »
