This ending up being one of those epic journeys that Joe seems to always delivers on. All seven cars ready to move off at the designated time, Joe in front, myself in second lead and Greg and Francis Sweeping at the back

The start of the drive, relatively free flowing dunes with light fine grain sand that slowly but surely turned into extremely technical dunes with unpredictable edges and so many steps that broke momentum and kept all the drivers on their toes. The blue lights of the LEDs struggled to bring out the detail in the sand and those small steps were waiting for all of us when we weren't at our peak of concentration.

These technical dunes seems to go on forever. At one point on a rise my LED lights lit up the surrounding area and for as far as the eye could see were an angry sea of technical dunes! It was one of those moments that you gasp and suck in some air and prepare yourself mentally for. Despite the relatively experience of the drivers, there were a few stucks that were dealt with my the able winch of Francis' F-150. As second lead, I didn't get the see many of the situations that we all got into and used the breaks in the drive to recharge my concentration as we headed past midnight.

Towards the end of the drive there was some flat stretches of sand that teased us into think that the drive would get easier but these were far too short to make any real impact on our average speed. Finally, after an exhausting drive we made the fence line and the drive came to an end around 2.15 am.

It was a monumental drive and an area definitely worth exploring again (perhaps in the day time next time). Thanks to ALL the drivers for their support and Joe for leading the convoy. Great drive.

Great write up. the picture isn't the best quality, but it almost captures all those technical dunes we saw as we entered that final valley.
