great drive, great company and some awesome reports! this was my second visit to the starfish dunes and they are as challenging and beautiful as they were the first time. like the first time in these dunes i did not manage to finish the route leaving me feeling like a junky looking for his next shot.. I need to go back to the starfish dunes and finish this pesky trail!! chapeau for Ricardo for traversing throuh this terrain as the head of the 4x4 dragon and making it look so easy and of course chapeau to all the rest for following the lead with relative ease which says a lot about the quality of the drivers! Starfish is a very technical terrain and manages to surprise you at every corner and across every dune. I'm hooked and I'll be back for more, aleays searching for my 4x4 fix.

Great drive, great people and some interesting twists...it's indeed a memorable one in many respects.

Thanks to Ahmed sir for organizing this trip; hats of to Ricardo for the first days lead.

As I was following Tyn; I could see him climbing dunes and dunes with ease which made me feel more comfortable and follow his path easily...but had to deviate sometimes as adrenaline was pumping Tyn to do experiments sometimes ;)

We were all very relaxed knowing the presence of Fauji at the sweep :thanks: and thanks for the wonderful Barbeque... :)

Thanks to Brian and Nikki for some of the most memorable moments and Carl aka plowboy for his wonderful company.

Look forward joining more of these type of special and wonderful drives :drive:

Nothing to add to the reports, but this was a great trip, and I hope all the vehicle problems get sorted out ;)
