Dxb - Slide, Steer, & Surf down the Sand slopes.

Post by Melvinuae »

We met at Badayer Shopes at 8.00am.

Melvin- Lead

Ramesh- Second Lead

Bibin

Prageeth

Abdulhamid

Jey Kuttan

Sinan- Side Sweep

Gabor- Sweep

Tilki_ Support

Bulldozer - Support



- 8.00am, we all met Badayer Shopes.

- At the deflation points the convoy order set and the convoy stayed 5 minutes for a briefing.



- then we started medium paced drive passing by a few nice dunes and we had the chance to pass by little play areas before the break time where we climbed few steep-ish dunes.


- 12.20 pm we arrived at Badayer shopes and after small chit chat head on the dirt track to tarmac.

The key takeouts from this drive for me:

Positives:

On the way we met another group of junior offroaders. Bulldozer & Tilki and our team helped to recover a rollover car, Nissan Patrol Y62. It was great experience for newbies.

- The different sand dunes that we passed given opportunities to experience dune formations, the role of approach, departure, and break away angles in the cars which is very essential for drivers to improve their technical skills and experienced drivers to enjoy.

- Special thanks to Sinan & Gabor for the support. Convoy was very organized and we didn't get many stucks (just one or two minor stucks ), even though we opted for a very technical route.

Special Thanks to Bulldozer & Tilki for attending the drive and making sure we all drive safely.



Looking forward to the next drive.
Best Regards,

Melvin

Dear Melvin,

Thanks you for well organizing trip on this Friday.

We found a lot new smiling face early morning. :D
You very well explained about AD4x4 Club ideas and safety rules with Buldozer during trip meeting
:ad4x4:
Your choice of track is more suitable for all Newbie drivers.
They did great work, I did not recognize any mistake during driving.

Personally felt their excitement which still I have for each drive :dance2:
We still learning from more experience driver like Buldozer. I can join his lecture hundred times :lol: :lol:

Then suddenly we joined recovery for others and I want to remind again that we can recover cars but should consider SAFETY at first which reminding during each basic recovery at our trips.

Appreciated for all drivers and support team which convoy moved safe and smooth.

Thanks a lot for Buldozer Diesel coffee and teaching advance recovery to everyone regardless who they are.
I'm happy to see Abdoo again even a few minutes before his trip.

Thanks again Melvin, I really enjoyed and see you next.
