All met on time at the Sweihan Wedding Hall. Pshasha had to pull out from the trip, but we hope to see you again next time. From Wedding Hall, we moved in convoy to deflation point (24 19.1618 (N), 55 24.9501 (E). After safety briefing, the trip convoy was set up with Marshal Bisho as 2ndlead, followed by Rumblebee (Mike), Freedonlucas (Lucas), Futureshock999 (Robert), Karenjeeptj (Karen) and Thiago737 (Tiago). Geert was acting as Sweeper last in convoy. Chief Marshal Khaiwi and Marshal YaYos were supporting from the back / sides.
We started out with some practicing of side sloping on the medium dunes and set target towards the Nagra dune. The ambitious target for the trip was the Old Lady dune (thus the name of the trip). We realized after some time that it would be a challenge to make it there before sunset, so the revised target became Nagra and then back to the BBQ deflation point (we will do the Old Lady next time). The level of the drive was rather high but all drivers did really well and there were only a few second tries and one real stuck. I really enjoyed leading this trip and I thank the Support, especially Bisho who changed my track few times and kept the convoy out of trouble.
See you all soon out there, and feel free to post pictures from the trip if you have any.
