We all met at Nahel gas station and after prompt checkin we started moving towards the deflation point. Everyone quickly deflated and we started our briefing for the drive. It was great to see all familiar faces and started our drive at 2:30pm
We started off in some shallow technical dunes and we had our first second attempt from Emad as he was running on 13psi on JK with BFG KO2's. After advising to deflate it to 8 psi he was very comfortable with his jeep on the soft sand. Starting in technical dunes was planned as we wanted the drivers to feel their cars better and simultaneously get ready for whats planned ahead :D
After crossing the fence section we entered the open area and started playing in the big dunes. We had few second attempts and 1 popout which was promptly taken care of. This drive was designed to train newbies with new skills, how to take advantage of the horses in their rigs and drive in a fast pace convoy.
Must say everyone drove exceptionally well. Thank you Rumblebee for the second lead and Lucas for sweeping. Special thanks to Marshal Tawalbeh and Karam for supporting.
Until next time :)
Had a wonderful trip. Thank you Francis. Look forward to more of the same. Thank you Marshal Karam for the driving tips.
Thank you Francis for a fantastic trip. As usual I learned a lot and it was a blast keeping up with you. Following that Ford is always fun!
It was great to see all the familiar faces. A great group!
