To The Dusk – report
Trip was scheduled for 4 pm all deflated and ready to go 9 out of the 11 cars arrived on time. Both late comers got extra help to deflate faster.
Briefing was done by Marko and safety briefing by Gonzo
The convoy started moving at 4:20 pm.
Marko was leading, Tiago as second lead and Gonzo the sweeper
After a few minutes we had to return to the starting point due to mechanical problems on Rathica’s Jeep.
Spotless first second lead with us, took over a few times and gave positive inputs to the convoy, great job!
Good job on keeping the distance and following the track. When leaving the crest and you notice the car is starting a slide remember, DON’T FIGHT GRAVITY! We have to practice switching more. Pay more attention To the radio communication! Sometimes we feel that you’re not listening the radio instructions at all.
Also a good job keeping the pace and maintaining the distance from the car in front.
A few stucks and second tries as you are still getting used to the new car and the challenge of your first trip as off-roader level. Don’t forget to inform the group when doing second tries.
Followed the track nicely but have to push a bit harder to keep the distance to the car in front, if you go too slow the gap increases a lot and is difficult for the leader to keep track of the convoy. In the other way we have to slow down all convoy, but we knows your skills and that you can keep up with no issues.
Good work controlling the car. Remember to not stay too close to the car in front. Keep safety distance as you have been told on briefing. If something bad happens you need space to be able to manoeuvre or stop if necessary! (check Video)
Unfortunately your jeep got sick today and you were unable to make your first off-roader level trip, even though you decided to stay with us and enjoy the day, thanks for your good vibes and for shearing the food with us after the trip.
He was having a break and just enjoying the drive! .. great job done and hopefully you will manage to put your rear bumper back!!
Desert Bunny and Desert Fox
