Almost everyone was ready to roll at 5:55am except for one coming from really far so we understand, let keep the timing.
Meeting up for a lovely afternoon ride almost everyone arrived on time. Rules, safety briefing and convoy order done by Salah and Marko.
We started with a soft warm up crossing some dunes and having a few stuck and second tries (lets remember to stop the convoy next time till the convoy order is back inline).
Our meeting today was at the Badayer shops area. We reached there on time only to find the area congested with other fellow off-roaders. There were at least 40-50 other cars lined up to start their drives.
After we managed to locate each other, we deflated in no time, had a quick briefing and hit the sand right away. Today’s trip really had it all, from cresting n side cresting to sloping and switching, to speeding and also going through a fairly technical area. It was really full of excitement.
Our first destination was the Iftar Bowl. There along with a big number of other off-roaders, we had a chance to play each on his own for a while. It was awesome to drive up n down this enormous dune. Then we moved on to reach the Super Bowl, where it was so crowded that we just decided to move on. Today we did not encounter any stucks there were a few second and third tries every once in a while, but everybody managed to finish this trail without any need for recovery. Well done everyone!!
After about 53 kms of intense desert driving, we came out at the same spot we had gone in some three hours earlier.
Trip Report by: Salah
I was late this morning about 30 seconds. After I quickly counted the cars I realized we are missing one, so I was not the last. Just when we started to think about the lunch Karimbo arrived, so we started driving towards deflation point. I’m joking of course, Karimbo arrived right after me … Respect to everyone for being on time at the meeting point.
The Bedouin weekend kicked off with a chilling Offroader trip through the wide sand dunes of Al Faqa area.
We started around 2.30pm with exploring the lovely area – with 1 stuck and 1 popout. Fellas, you were doing fantastic job, thanks again!
After nearly 2 hours of driving desertfox took over the lead to bring more action into the ride after a long and realaxed warm-up. Thanks desertfox, awesome job!
Around 5pm, the group was approaching the campsite where they were welcomed with arabic coffee and tea as well as dates and snacks. It was lovely ride and thanks to everyone who joined!
