Nice drive with great company.

Left the meeting point at 7:10 as planned. We were only 5 cars (GKumar, Carl, Rein, Musbah and myself), as three drivers appologized before.

From al rawda petro station we headed to Al Faqaa mosque, deflated and the fun began.

The drive was a fast one and rated (Intermediate +) as we wanted to spice it a little bit for the team.

Everyone drove well without taking unnecessary risks. Although the entent was to test everyone's reflexes and focus, Musbah was the second lead and was constantly giving a headsup to all the drivers on the radio preventing them from potential hickups ... that's was too nice from him ...

We finished the drive around 10:15, 15min later than the original plan, but that's alright I guess, isn't it?

All in all I enjoyed driving with all of you.

Thank you for making it happen and special thanks to GKumar for his commandable help controling the convoy and giving the right advices, it made my role very easy :)


See you all soon.

Cheers

Khalil

What a nice drive Khalil….you managed to increase the adrenaline and to spice the drive very well. I believe we did around 7000 side cresting and side slopes … left right lift right then up down up down :-o :-o :-o . Lead Marshal……You were a mazing and the team did excellent job :ymapplause: :ymapplause: :ymapplause: . BTW I am still counting how many times we did side cresting and side slopes.
Kumar as a sweep Marshal as usual did a great job and any convoy has a qualified marshal like Kumar will definitely achieve the targets and the objectives of the trip peacefully and safely. :ymapplause: :ymapplause: :ymapplause:
Carl in his toy was very confident and did excellent. Thanks Carl for your help and support. :ymapplause: :ymapplause:
Rein as usual he is a tough offroader and did excellent. :ymapplause: :ymapplause:
The trip in General was amazing and I am sure if the time was in winter then we could unquestionably kept driving for another three or four hours.
Nice team with Perfect Lead and Sweep.
Thanks guys and wait for the video to watch the drive…

Best Regards

Khalil at his home ground Al Faqqa.... what else to expect. Awesome drive!!! It was a perfect short convoy to explore the challenging terrains of Al Faqqa. Thanks Musbah, Carl, Rein for the great company. Indeed it was a worth morning to spend at sands :) :) :)
I was very happy to have such a nice drive after a long break. Thank you very much, Khalil :thanks:

As explained during the drive briefing it was a fast paced drive. But we made Khalil to slow down often due to few repeated attempts at tricky patches :D But I would like to highlight the point that everybody accepted and executed Khalil's challenges very safely - never fought with gravity and also drove with the vehicle weight in good control.

As Musbah stated, Khalil was teaching the convoy how to handle crests at different angles and side slopes.... few hesitated #-o #-o #-o but managed safely on reattempt :ymapplause: :ymapplause: :ymapplause: On all such tricky spots, Khalil was turning back and had a close look at the convoy. Ensured everybody was doing good and accordingly adjusted the drive level... amazing job bro! :ymhug:

Musbah, you did a good job with your monster. Its not a joke to manage that monster in those steep climbs, drops and sharp turns :ymapplause: :ymapplause: :ymapplause: I loved the crawl control system "Computerized Recovery" :-o
It will be simple and plain to state Carol aka CCG with his little monster ruled all dunes :-BD :-BD :-BD except may be one :D Good job and great convoy support mate :ymapplause: :ymapplause: :ymapplause:
Rein was my lead being second last car in the convoy :D good job bro! You were in full control of your car on those tricky climbs and crests.. very good job :ymapplause: :ymapplause: :ymapplause:

Thank you all for the wonderful drive and company :thanks: Look forward to see you soon in sands :)

I was finding it hard to balance my car as it was getting thrown to sideways with the weight. Had to adjust alot to manage those crests and side slopes. Went to garage straight after the drive and was shocked to see the broken rear sway bar (stabilizer bar). After effects of two back to back crest cutting drives :-ss :-ss :-ss So luck favored me today to execute the game safely :YMPRAY:

Saturday morning…was a morning of adrenaline filled one; all because of Khalil, as the lead marshal had organised an excellent drive and lead us to a fun filled ”on the toes’’ drive sequence. :drive:

After meeting at the designated spot, Khalil, Kumar, Musbah, Carl and myself drove to the deflation point where we hit the sands at Al Faqaa. Musbah in 2nd lead, lead us thru the path carved by Khalil, constantly warning us of all the hidden surprises. :-o Kumar in the sweep position always kept a watchful eye on the convoy. No words can describe the perfect execution of Khalil and Kumar while they are on the sands.

The drive in general was fast paced and demanded full control in terms of reflexes and vehicle control over the countless steep crests, side slopes, tricky bowls…It was a pleasure to drive again in such a wonderful company. Carl and Musbah as usual were in full control of their machines. :ymapplause:
Thanks to Musbah, Carl and not the least to Khalil and Kumar for making this drive a fun filled and ending it safely. Hoping to drive again with you all again.
Have a wonderful week

This was a great technical drive, that I found challenging, and adventurous. There was a good variety of skill building tracks that we got to run on. This was a great drive to leave on, as due to work I probably won't get to go out in the sand for close to a month! At least it was on a high note :)
