Below is a rough itinerary (to be finalized as we get closer to the event date):

Friday 4th:
Meeting at gas station and fueling up.
Drive to Entry Point (deflating, convoy allocation, briefing...)
Start drive inside Liwa, heading towards Moreeb Dune.

Head back to camp at night

Saturday 5th:

Notes:
- Your car needs to be in perfect condition. Take it for a safety sanity check before you hit the road.
- Carry all required equipments (radio, flag, compressor, recovery rope, shackles, deflator, pressure gauge...)
- Bring all the required food, equipment, wood, lighting, sleeping bags, bbq items...
- Carry extra fuel. 60 liters would put you in the safe spot. We will not stop by any gas station to refill within both days.
- It is not recommended to bring kids under 16 years old.
- Since the area will be very crowded, we insist that you maintain discipline and respect the Marshalls' advices.

This event happens once a year. We look forward to making the best out of it with everyone!

Yes, you can exit from tal moreeb. Plan is to reach camp spot by 4.30 and goto tal moreeb after we setup our tents.

Thanks Asem,
I'm sure it's gonna be a fantastic weekend like usual.
I'm wondering if it can be a good idea to have Whatsapp group, so we can all keep in tuch.
Then we might use that to share photos an videos.
