Hello DubaiOffroaders,

I am very excited to be joining my first drive with you guys on Friday 16th. One thing only is that I am missing the flag from the required equipment. Still looking to buy one. Is it ok to join without it this time? Please advise. Thanks

Kekx

Hello Kekx,

We’re also very excited that you’re coming with us for your first trip.

Do try and get a flag as it is imperative to have a flag for safety reasons.

If you’re absolutely unable to get it tomorrow, then as you will join the Dubai - Al Ain road, there will be an Enoc which will come on the right hand side. That Enoc has flags kept for sale near the fuel pumps. You can buy a flag there.

Hello Vikas,

It shows in your profile that you have a Xterra 2011. Could you please check your tow hook again?

Without a rear tow hook, it will be a problem to pull you out safely in case you get stuck. I am afraid we’ll not be able to allow you if you don’t have a rear tow hook.

Please check again and update us. You’ll find my WhatsApp number in my profile.

Also, the number provided in your profile is giving me an error that it is not a working number at the moment. Please double check the number in your profile.

Without a rear tow hook, I am afraid we’ll not be able to allow you due to safety reasons.

A tuned radio is vital for safe off-roading. You can buy one from dragon Mart. Crony, Motorola are some brands used. Some shops will tune the frequencies. Be familiar on usage. Please refer to Technical articles and reviews, Offroad walkie talkie faq for details. See you all tomorrow.
