    Default Offroading in UAE (Mainly Dune Bashing in and Around Dubai)

    PHOTOS OF THE TRIP ARE ON BELOW LINK

    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/4x4...12#post3346277

    Since I have seen that PW has many members from UAE who owns a 4x4 as well.
    So I would like to Propose a Desert Trip, We can set the level of trip according the level of experience of members. But I most do the relaxing kind of Drive over Dunes NOT the Extreme hardcore Arabic Style.

    I have been driving in desert for almost three years, but still learning. So if any one is interested please list your name and vehicles and you desert driving experience (e.g how many drives you have done) below. You Only need to bring your vehicle, Recovery gear if you have, Some food for your self or if you want to share (upto you), atleast 2 liters of water for you and same for you car. And Most of All You best Sense of humor and Smile.


    Just to give you an idea about Driving in desert or may be about my driving style you can watch the video, the lead Golden infinity Qx4 is me.
    Emarat4x4, Humsafar Drive 25-11-2011 - YouTube



    Since It has already become hot during the day so the drive will be in morning only

    The date will be announced later on seeing the members interest.

    If enough interest is found we may make this a regular exercise

    *Meeting - 60 am at Emarat Pump on sharjah kalba road.
    N25° 14.058'
    E55° 34.433
    *Date - friday the 4th may
    *Drive end time 9:30 am
    *Bar b q - not this time, may be next time when people are more comfortable with each other
    *Families Allowed - yes families are allowed
    *Drive level - Easy I will be coming with family
    *Don't have 4x4 - No problem just show at the gas station at metioned time and you will be accomodated in some one's car. I am sure not every one will bring their families.


    Please note there has to be atleast four cars, with one car who has some experience in desert inorder to conduct the drive safely. <!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

    Idea is nice, just two concerns; 1st is Safety & 2nd, I don't have a 4x4

    PW Members @ UAE do meet quite often;
    the action you've missed is...

    Unfortunately I missed the earlier UAE get to gethers, however will certainly join the next one.

    Regarding safety, Yes Dune bashing is a dangerous hobby, but can be done safely, if proper rules and good common sense is followed. still it cannot be 100% safe,
    At the same time it is full of exitement and adrenaline rish, belive me it is an addiction just like any other form of addiction.

    I have seen people who used to say, " what you guys do in the desert day and night ruining your rides climbing useless dunes etc..". and now they themselves are found in desert on every off day they have.

    It seems there is not interest, or may Be UAE members are not visiting the forum regularly, or may be not many members have SUV contrary to my perception.

    any ways I will try to keep the topic alive, in case any one in interested.

    Come on UAE chapter wake up. It will be a great get together. Since the season is almost at werge of becoming an "offseason" for out doors.

    Those who dont have 4x4s can join any one else who have SUVs. I guarantee u it will be a fun.

    If waking up early seems a hard task we can make it an evening event.

    Please hurry up and decide before it becomes too hot to be outside and that too in desert.

    All sugessions /opinions are welcome

    Yes u r correct that few of UAE members have SUV .

    Well I use to go off road smtimes in Pajero 3.L 2008 Model. But not for dune bashing as it required some gr8 skills and experinse.

    Which place u recommend for this dune bashing?
    Same again any safety plans ?
    The video u shared with us is of some Football Game ????
    Which dates u prefer for this meet up ?

    Let's see how the things will go & UAE Members where are u now specIly the one who wanted to go for offloading ..

    If it is restricted to dune-bashing stuff then may be most members won't show-up

    it requires to put some efforts to engage members as most of them don't visit PW regularly.

    I guess ur the same humsafar from e4x4 forums.

    Most UAE members are not active on PW. you might have to PM them. A good starting point is to coordinate with v8@pw, khanrocks@pw, and racerf1@pw.

    Every one starts from some point, and you learn the skills with the time, I still remember when I first started the dune bashing I was so afraid to press the gas and was afraid of dropping from even small dunes, but with time you learn some basic skills, still at some moments my heart jumps to the throat

    Quote Originally Posted by Sheryar View Post

    I usually go to Fossil Rock area, there I find my kind of dunes, with no previous tracks on them, most of the dunes are of medium size few big ones and one steep drop from fossil rock, shaded mountains for having break fast or some chit chat

    Quote Originally Posted by Sheryar View Post

    Try to vigorously follow the instructions given by the drive leader at beginning of trip and when ever you feel un comfortable just stop and ask for assistance. dont dare to take Risk if you are not comfortable with it

    Sorry, Now I corrected the link

    Lest say 1st friday of May, meeting time can be evening or morning, what ever majority decides, but in evening it gets little crowded.

    Let's see how the things will go & UAE Members where are u now specIly the one who wanted to go for offloading ..

    Well in desert you can do dune bashing only and in the evening you can do Barbq Plus music if some one has portable music system. After dune bashing we can go to a good place on with a beautiful drop on one side (not dangerous one) and very near to road, infact the road will be visible from Bar B q / chit chat place. members may sit there till 8-9 pm or uptil when ever they like and than can go home easily either to Sharjah or Dubai. both will be almost at equal distance.

    We can make it a family event as well. normally E4x4 we have family evenings here, it is a great spot for family and kids to enjoy

    I would request old member's assistance in spreading the message, since they know each other well.

    U were in whose team during treasure hunt. How come i dont remember u, what is ur nick at em4x4. R u regular there.

    Regarding treasure hunt i m with u about not giving the starting point putting some teams to quite disadvantage.
    Actually my car slided ovr a slope and into the bushes, the right side is now in quite bad shape the bumper and right side was scratchless, but nownhave many scratches.


    I am also hot much active in desert now a days, i still remember when i started offroading x4 years back, i was also crazy, but then thefrequency of drives reduced gradualy.

    Great Idea .. We can surely have an offroad get together .... Since now we have quite a few members with 4x4s in UAE ...

    Weather is still OK for this kinda event .... Too bad I m leaving for Pak soon for my much needed vacations ... And have too join my patent 4x4 group too for some fun

    But surely I encourage all of you to setup a 4x4 meet and have fun .... I will be back in a few weeks ... If u guys did not do it till then I would make sure we do it
