Name:- G.Kumar
My Camel:- 2004 Nissan Patrol
Profession:- Handling human beings, dignified version is Human Resources
Offroading Experience:- Was introduced to sands almost 8 years back by friends but very soon was forced to take a long break. Restarted offroading since 2010 for my family, especially for my daughter who was very fond of the wobbling drive in sands. Now they are bored of it, but I am not.

The turning point was my meeting with Abdul Aziz, Chief of ADNOC offroad training and rescue department. I could drive with him and learned the very basics of safe offroading. Later started practicing it during the drives with friends, following safari convoy's tracks. :p Was not aware of any offroad clubs in Dubai, till finding DO.

I can very proudly boast that my offroading attained its perfection after joining DO by the end of last year. Learned alot with DO and love to continue in the same learning phase. Also I am thankful to the DO Management for all the considerations and recognition extended to me during this short period. This is a wonderful family and I look forward, to be always a part of it.

Name Ahmed Pervez
My Current Ride 2008 FJ Cruiser
Profession Have my own IT solutions and on-line IT/ electronics Retail Company.
Offroading Have been literally always off Roading, we used to go hunting antelopes in Northern India on some old Willys Jeeps.
I guess this is something that's in your blood...the love of adventure & risk taking capacity...
either you have it or you do'nt...It's just a matter of these harmones either being dormant or raging...

I started initially going offroad with Fraser Martin...who now works in Dubai Autodrome...and is one of the senior most Motorsport Journalists not only in UAE but in the region as well.
This was in the mid 90's, I used to drive a Jeep Cherokee Auto at that time.
He used to and still runs and organises Jeep Jamboree for Trading Enterprises,
He used to have a Grand Cherokee & a Caterham 7 in those days,
He had some superstition & all his cars used to have white & yellow in some combination,
We had some great rides together, the desert was clean, pristine & one hardly ever encountered a fence or a blacktop...

I then joined Gulf news as a Marshall in 1997/1998, and you know what...I had never ever been a participant in any Fun Drive...always as a Marshall...right from the First Fun Drive that I attended.
The team leader and the convoy leader, too, at that time used to be the legendary Jehanbaz Ali Khan(Jum),
He is the author of quite a few offroading books, the chief Marshal of Gulfnews Fun Drive...since 1986!!! Clerk of the course for Emirates Desert Challenge and a has number of other off road related assignments.
Jum is currently running a company specializing in off Road Jungle tours in Thailand...

Off roading was really challenging, at those times, or at least it seemed like the novice that I was...but yes...desert was open and endless with very few landmarks and we did not have GPSs till 1999...
It has been an honor for me to have ridden with these legends & I could safely say that I owe whatever skills I have today to these legendary friends & mentors...
and now I am happy to be part of the DO family having founded this small club with a few friends in April 2008.
And Please remember...One never stops learning, and if you think you have mastered it, think again!!! and my journey of Discovery continues...

Offroading: Started my passion for offroad very recently maybe 6 months back. I have taken a course for desert driving from Emirates Driving Institute & then realised. What am I doing with 4*4 if I am not using it for offroads.

Explored few Offroads(not really dune bashing) using the Explorer Offroad magazine to Falaj Al Mualla etc through semi dunes track.Had my first association with DO during the last week training drive. It was really good & well organised. Hope to attend the drives every week & be an active member in DO and become an expert Offroader.

You guys are cool. Thanks & take care !!!
