Hey Guys,
My name is Arjun. Been in Dubai for a long long time... around 26 years now. I used to own a jeep for around 5 years from 2011 - 2016 during which i did frequent the deserts quite often in convoys and little groups of friends. Sold it then for a sedan and almost instantly regretted it. I used to go on quite a few drives early on but since i haven't had a chance to practice for the last several years and my entire off-road crew has left the country. Decided to join the group and make some new friends and hopefully a new group. Would like to start from the beginning to get a feel and the confidence back.
Hoping to see you all soon.

Arjun

Hello everyone!
My name is Pedro and I'm an offroad enthusiast for long time!
I'm portuguese and moved to Dubai 3 years ago.
Till 3 years ago my experience was limited to mountain trails. When I arrived UAE, I bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee to use as family car and started to discover sand.
Went a few times but almost left my bumpers in Al Qudra :), then my wife banned me from going with her car offroading.
Then I bought a Jeep Wrangler JLU and I am "in love"... with the car and the desert :)
I have to say that the only experience that I've carried from mountain trails to the desert is the ability to control the "ego", because every thing else is different!
I really hope I can learn a lot with you guys and spend very good times and drives!
See you soon on the sand!

Regards,
Pedro

Yeah I managed to sign up for the 5th. Probably a noob question but the meeting point location is listed down as "Sharjah" - I assume more details will be given closer to the date?

Also, where can I find the link to the telegram group?
Thanks!
