Long weekend, clear blue skies, Wadi Asami should have been a dream drive. All the cars departed and we headed off into the Wadi from the meetup point around 10.30. The wadi had a well used path which at times turned into a gravel road and as such the wadi posed no difficult in navigation or driving the convoy of 14+ cars through. The pace of the drive was however painfully slow for apparently no reason (it was a road!)
We stopped half way and enjoyed some lunch under some palm trees. The highlight of the drive so far were my banana and peanut butter sandwiches i packed for the family
PLEASE REMEMBER TO PICK UP YOU LITTER
Thankfully the wadi finished soon after. Wadi Asima is tooted as a great drive but I imagine that very few of the drivers on this trip would be itching to get back. No fault of any ones, just the way it is.
Once out of the wadi we headed for the dunes of RAK. we a couple of retirement Abdullah did his best to make the drive a success and after more than a few stuck vehicles, a pop out, some great steep declines and many unpredictable dunes we finished around 5.30 and headed home. Thanks as always to Abduallah for leading the convoy, his patience is immense!
