Trip date: Friday 18.01.2019 / Time: 02:00 pm
What a wonderful afternoon, amazing weather, clear sky and lots of smiling faces. All met at the petrol station on time with the intermediate trip led by Marshal Bisho who led both convoys to the deflation point where I was waiting.
Newbie convoy of 14 cars as follows:
Billet** (2nd Lead)
Jagypnf*** (Official Sweeper)
With everyone deflated & flags are on, I did the briefing and set the convoy. Then we went into the sand playing on the small dues in a slow pace so all the new drivers would get familiar with their cars driving on the sand, then increase the pace one notch up as all were comfortable and handling well and went cursing between larger dunes. We had several second tries & 4 stucks.
Trip ended at 5:30 pm, then we everyone gathered at the BBQ point where we met the intermediate convoy and all sat as one big family chatting and having a BBQ. Some left after one hour, while others stayed till mid-night.
Everyone did well. Thanks you all for joining the trip, it was nice meeting everyone.
Thanks Billet for being a solid second lead and Jagypnf for your efforts recovering stucks and always keeping me informed of what's going on at the back of the convoy.
Special thanks to Marshal k-alhosani & irfnpk for looking after the convoy.
See you all soon on the dunes.
