Report: ADVANCE 101- THE GRAVITY TRIP V1.0

Post by FidoDido » Mon Feb 11, 2019 12:18 pm

Brave group with nice weather in nice place.

We all met at the deflation point directly. Had safety and advance 101 briefing to the new advance members and some to refresh the memory for the older members, the convoy was set with MissoBisho as my second lead followed by Falcon_83, Bshasha, Billet, Ahmed Omar, DesertDriver, irfpk as official sweaper. and our Falcon eyes all over the convey by Shalaan and Chief Khaiwi.

We started quick but gently just picking low dunes with easy slopes practicing side creasting. by the time goes I could feel the confidence of the drivers to raise up the pace more keeping safety as priority.

With couple of second try we reached to the big trees where we had a good break and shot of coffee.

On our way back we started to ride longer dunes where a demonstration stuck was provided by myself. thanks Cheif for your recovery.

We reached back to the deflation point before the sunset where some decided to leave and rest to stay for Bryani.

You all did very well. it was a big learning experience for all of us.

Thank you all and specially thanks for our support team.

see you soon.

It was an apt initiation to the Advance level and it was great that I could get upgraded just in time to be a part of the 101.

Post briefing, the initial track itself was a big boost up from the intermediate level. It was followed by a well timed break when the track was discussed and some of the initial breifing was re-iterated.

I must admit that it was a good strategy from the marshal to first dazzle the group with a complex track selection to get the anticipation/fear out of the way and allowed the drivers to get in the groove faster.

The drive was nicely paced and was a good introduction to the demands of this new level .

Thnx to the marshal and the support team for being ever ready with their suggestions and advise and to Chief Khaiwi for the great photos.

Thanks Marshal Fidodido for organizing an Adv trip in lovely weather. It was indeed pleasure to drive with the group of familiar friends. I must appreciate that all new Adv drivers did exceptionally well as observed from last position of convoy. Needless to mention, drive started smoothly on a well selected track and gradually increased the difficulty level for training purpose.
Thanks Marshal Khaiwi and Shalan for your support. Thanks Marshal Adiga and Bisho for your support, advice and patience as passengers.
Special Thanks to Marshal Khaiwi and his passenger for wonderful pictures of every vehicle and instance.

Thank you FidiDido for the trip, as my first advance trip. To be frank, I was a bit afraid of the side cresting at the beginning ... but after bashing few, I got more confident and the track got more exciting and challenging for me.
Thank you for making it smooth for me and everyone else who just got upgraded.
I am looking forward to drive with you again
