    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 -->

    ^I've contacted the group, lets see who is in.
    I'd recommend to wait for consent of members for final date & timings
    and families, I won't recommend.

    So, how many guys are interested? And how many SUVs can be arranged. You'll have to manage accordingly. Too many guys with just a couple of SUVs wont work.

    Secondly, what kind of off-roader is required? Just the Land Cruiser or other SUVs can also join?

    @hamsafar77, what is exact venue you're planning to go,
    coordinates will help members from other states to calculate time/distance required to reach there.

    Do we've any other recreation available at the selected spot like, hiring atv/buggy. It will add more fun if we select a venue where we can have ride on ATVs, raptors along with main-course on SUVs.

    V8 I dont think joining with families will be any problem, they will enjoy, the track will not be extreme, and we can always make it easiy to easier if participants or families find it terrifying

    Coordinates for meeting point are
    Emarat petrol station Shj-Kalba road:
    N25° 14.058'
    E55° 34.433'

    and the Drive starting point coordinates are

    N25° 08.561'
    E55° 4.594'

    Regardoing how many guys are interested, I will only come to know if they llist their name.

    Even if there are 4 vehicles, and three with only drivers (one person), than we can easily accomodate 9-10 persons who will come on their saloon cars. they need to park the cars at Petrol Stations and hop in SUV's and then at the return will be able to take their cars

    I have already posted the coordinates of meeting point,
    Yes there is one ATV renting spot near by, but it is not open in morning nd in evening the place is a mess there will be so many locals driving like crazy in and arround the place, moreover you will not get time to rent and enjoy this, since the drive planned is for 2-3 hours, and in this time we might not even complete the planned route, if the vehicles keep on getting stuck
