      Hi subodh, i don't have FB account. is it available on Google+ as well?

      October 24, 2012

    • subodh

      Hi Abu, nope, only fb for now :)

    Just a quick reminder : Meet up spot : when you head from Dubai to Abudhabi, the very first ADNOC petrol station you come across will be the spot where we need to meet. Time has now been changed to 4am in order to ensure we reach Liwa well in advance to the sunset, coz once its dark...its really really DARK outthere :)

      Hi jeet, considering the stops for prayers, breakfasts, refreshments, lunch and random stops for sake of photography, its imp for us to start early. Also we could reach liwa a bit quicker to set up tents ( if anyone carries) and also scout a better location as it would be populated due to many people heading towards there. So lets start quick, drive easy, and reach safe. Cheers

    Hi, I want to join this trip with my wife & a 5 year old daughter. But I don't have a car and I stay at Al Nahda 1, Sahara Tower 2 behind Sahara Centre. Can I join with some one in this trip?
    Thanks

    Would we need a 4X4 for this? if not then I can bring my car.

    October 22, 2012

    • subodh

      Nope, we dont need a 4x4 as we dont intend to get cars into the dunes. Liwa is pretty much a strip of road running through beautiful dunes, so we dont need to dig in to see anything, because we already are deep within :)

      October 23, 2012

    • Abu Hayat K.

      that's great, i will take my car :-)

    Good Morning Guys, I'm new to this group and a beginner. I have a Nikon D7000 with[masked], 8-16 and a 17-50 lens kit. Which of these are appropriate to this occasion?

    October 23, 2012

    • subodh

      8 to 16 looks appropriate as liwa is mainly about landscapes.

      October 23, 2012

  • subodh

    All you guys who have RSVPed here...please RSVP here aswell. And please let me know how many of you wish to drive your car and how many need lift...please respond :)
