Al Faya night drive 23/6/22

We met at 18:00 h, deflated and conducted trip & safety briefing. We used the first hour in daylight to warm up in the dunes driving East. Everyone was doing very well so we confidently switch on our lights and continued driving in the dark. The track was for the most part nice and flowy, with some technical challenges and some soft sand spots mixed in. We had a few second tries but nobody got stuck.

We had a couple of breaks in between, with one longer tea break relaxing and chatting and enjoying the nice temperature.
We then decided to continue towards Tilal Sweihan, where we reached in time to finish the trip at 22:00h as planned.

We saw a couple of mice, a gazelle and a low-flying helicopter circling above our heads.

It was a very pleasant and enjoyable trip with a convoy of four cars only and very capable intermediate drivers.
Thanks to Vaughan for thoughtfully second leading and James for always letting me know what the situation in the back was.

Thanks for joining and see you soon again in the sand.

It was a great trip, very enjoyable with the smaller number of vehicles and very well paced.
