Would any one want to leave the evening before around 5 or 6, and camp not far from the drive or a set meeting point ?
that way we don't wake at 3 for a full day drive.

Getting amped for this trip.

I am planning to drive back to Dubai from Hameem along the Saudi border then via Um Al Zamool & Al Quoaa, into Al Ain, etc. I will drive the tarmac with no planned offroad (famous last words ;) ) . I would like to take this route to simply see what the landscape is like out there and venture to a UAE corner that I have not been to before. It will add approx 2 hours and 200Km to the trip home. If anyone would like to join me just let me know :ymhug:

Matt it will be dark just to let you know, unless you are planning to camp another night in Himeen.
True Duncan. I guess it will really only make sense if we finish around 3 or 4. If not then I would just plan to return the normal way.

Liwa is fast approaching and so the time for vehicle servicing is needed. Please make sure your vehicle is up to the task. On this point please make sure you carry vehicle fluids etc. in case of emergency.

Also, firewood is necessary and 1 bundle per person should be enough. If you can get more please feel free to bring. Plan ahead, leaving this until the night before will mean no wood and you will be banished from the fire as punishment ..............joking but its very important to bring. It will be freezing at night. Also, special marks to the person who brings marshmallows.

Alright time to get set for Liwa

I am up for camping Thursday night. I was planning/hoping to leave a bit early from my office ~4pm or so. I could either delay that until everyone else is ready or I could go down and scope out a campsite. Either way I am fine.

Could we plan to meet at this petrol station at 1800? https://goo.gl/maps/wPH1UevnovD2

Gallo, Paul, Sebastien??? Anyone else keen for Thursday night camping?
