Note earlier meeting and start time to allow for the improving weather and earlier sunset!

After reaching the location above, turn left at the fence, and follow the fence south for around 1km to the large open meeting area.


Meeting time: 1400

Convoy allocations and radio frequencies will be shared by Whatsapp in advance of the drive.

C. Max 3 persons per vehicle, or 5 if from the same family staying in the same house.
D. Drive briefing can be viewed on this page and communications on the day will be carried out by radio, so please ensure your radio carries the correct channel announced on your convoy’s WhatsApp group so you can line up correctly once at the meeting point, deflate your tires are deflated and mount your flag.

F. There is to be no sharing of any food or drinks.

2) Be punctual.
3) Any participants not registered on the forum site will not be allowed to join the drive.

B) air compressor you can purchase new off Amazon, suggest Vitaly - works well costs 299 AED
C) you can buy AOR kinetic rope and soft shackles form ACE/ Amazon
D) Baofeng From Dragon Mart will do
F) I got a mount installed from Radical Garage and bought a Flag pole and flag separately, but I’ve seen many people get suction type flag mounts and pole.

Hello Hayssam, welcome to Dubai Offroaders. It’s good to have you in the group. The trip is compatible for beginners. There will be different convoys for different skill levels.

WhatsApp groups for each convoy will be created either Thursday evening or early Friday morning.
