Hi Guys,

Always wanted to see the Fossil rock. Please count me in. I have all basic gear ready. Not sure if I still have to secure a spot on this page, couldn't find it.

How do we get the exact meeting point ?

See you all !
Hello Roadrunner! This is a particularly lovely route and there are still spots left so please sign into the website and then click on the link for the drive, then ATTEND and submit.

Hi boys,
I just joined the group and quite exited about the drive on Friday.
I have most recovery gear, and a little practice of going off-roading with my friends.
But I'm concerned if my Motorola walkie-talkie (picture below) will be able to tune in to your operating bands. Can you please confirm if it is ok?
And also i don't have a flag pole until now. How do i get it?

This is the correct Radio, does not even need to be tuned.
For Flagpole try Radical Motorsport in Al Quoz, they might be even able to fix it tomorrow itself.

a. VW Toureg is essentially not the correct vehicle for sand.
b. Do not buy anything now, come along for the trip and see if this is something that you would like to do regularly and then maybe you can invest in this hobby.
c. You do not have to pay anything to join this trip.

Hi I am a first time rider, can you please share the list of necessary items for the ride. Thanks
Hi,

Welcome to Dubai Offroaders!

You need a flag with a mount, preferably not a suction cup one and a radio that you know how to tune.

Let us know if you need any assistance arranging those items.
Hi,
I bought a flag with suction mount, will that be an issue.
