Report: Enter sandKman - Advance 101

Post by kman » Fri Apr 12, 2019 5:53 pm

It was a pleasant cloudy morning. All met on time at deflation point. We quickly deflated and moved onto the sand where I started the briefing. We went over the safety rules first and then focused on the theory of side cresting and DOs and DON'Ts. We then setup the convoy and headed out to play on the dunes. My second lead was Rene (The Baron), followed by Kamran (Kamran143), Ajesh (Billet), Christian (RedBaron), Kevin (petro), Mark (loefflmj1) and our honorable sweeper Michal (flaghunter).

We started with some side sloping and small side cresting while headed east. All drivers were showing good control and proper speed while driving on the crests. We then crossed the gatch road and progressed into side cresting over medium dunes. One of these higher dunes was turned into a practice playground where everyone practiced approach angles and necessary speed to safely get on and ride the crest. We then continued to play near and along the gatch road until the end of the trip at Gate 12 where we inflated.

All drivers did excellent and the only honors of recovery practice went to the trip lead and official sweeper.

I am looking forward to driving with all of you again! Until then - exit sandKman.

This was a fun trip with lots of good side cresting learning experiences. Everyone did well and had fun. There is a link to the photos I've taken below.

Thanks a lot for making this happen. Great ride with great people on a lovely track. This was my first advanced drive and this gave me a lot of confidence.

Any time again...

The trip was a nice technical one and deliberately slow paced which allowed me to try different gear combinations and ranges.

All drivers did well.

Looking forward to the next call.

Thank you Constantine! Great path. I appreciate you taking the time to impart some of your knowledge to help us learn. Thank you for paying such close attention to each of us and giving us the confidence to push our skills within reason and in a controlled fashion. I'm more confident and comfortable cuz of this trip. Everyone there was so cooperative. Great team. Look forward to next trip.

Thank for you for organizing and leading this trip, Constantine. It was a great drive with lots of side cresting to practice and learn - and as always, a great group of people to spend the morning with. Look forward to see you all again soon 😀
