We all met promptly at 7:15 deflated and started our way to the beautiful Bu Tais to start a great morning playing and practicing advance level skills around large and open dunes. With Testinwork as co-pilot the convoy was set: Geert as second lead, recent advance Bhav in the middle and Mira as official sweep, with Thomas and Abdul Qadir patrolling side and rear to ensure a tight pack formation.
As always the area provided both splendour and challenge with plenty of second tries, a good sprinkling of stucks and 2 popouts to aid respect for the desert and encourage learning. Our advanced drivers, Geert, Bav and Mira showed wise decision making and sensible choices while driving around the bowls, over the crests and down the often very large and steep descents. Well done to all.
As always, time passes too quickly so we saved the rest of the desert for another day and returned to the inflation point by 11:45.
Thanks to all for a great morning, and of course thanks to Abdul Qadir and Thomas for their assistance, support and helpful demonstrations.
See all again soon.
