Friday slow and steady Advance at Sweihan

Post by bisharbn »

Hi,
Started from Sweihan BBQ Point.Below is the convey order.

1. Bishar(Lead)
2. Ian (Second Lead)
3. Chrismon
4. Derik
5. Reji
6.Syed(Sweep)
7. John (Free-floating)


We had a long session of briefing with Kevin. Drive started at 8:00 am. We had the first advanced driver (Derik) so initially, Kevin started the warm-up session for 30 mins, then I started the lead. We had a couple of stucks and second tries.

Ian did a good job as the second lead in making decisions.
Chris- Love the way he control the Pradoand way he drives. Keep going.
Derik-. The first official Advance drive and with the heavy RAM did amazingly well.
Reji:- Shown a lot of confidence in his driving and did very well. Keep going.
Syed.Thanks, Syed for being my sweep. Nicely watch the tail side of my convey.

Thanks again Kevin supporting the trip and you have been always there.
Thanks, John for the wonderful support and good energy you have shown. It was always a pleasure to have you.

Seen Bulldozer rolling in Sweihan dunes, :roll: Didn thought that they will make a lot of damage to Sweihan dunes.
Maybe it will take some days to get sweihan back to normal. Will post-drive in another area. Till then bye.

Regards
Bishar BN

Bishar, Very useful trip especially balance control on the crest driving. It was a beginners level technical mix drive. Special thanks to Marshal Kevin for the last time extra session.

Thanks Bishar, it was a nice trip to the level of the weakest. It's a good attitude despite the fact that you want to ride every dune that passes.
Derek did well for his first and welcome back Syed, all the others did well.
Thank you Kevan for your kind supervision.

Thank you Bishar for organizing this trip and also for the trust to be your second lead for the second time.
The choice of your tracks suited really well to practice side crestings. I really enjoyed it 😃.

Thank you also to Kevin for the last part lead on the super technical area going back to the inflation point, it’s really challenging.😃
And to all the drivers. See you all soon 😃 💪🏻
