Thanks for the day Amreen. It was fun.
Hey guys, thank you everyone that came to the meet up today! Really appreciate it. I had a great time with everyone, especially at the BBQ. Sorry, if it was a bit disorganized, it was my first time hosting anything ;) I hope you guys had a good time too! And thank you Ahmad for joining us :)
I insisted on taking my car to the pools and it was scary but I gotta say, this was a FUN day. Had an absolute awesome time. Thanks Amreen!!! :)

Ray is bringing a disposable grill too. So v have 4 of them now. That's enough I guess.
I am bringing one disposable grill
At the moment, according to the list, Moina and Ahmad are bringing the disposable BBQ grills. I guess we need more. Any volunteers?
If everyone brings meat, who will bring the bbq??
Also the insurance papers and make sure that insureance cover Oman also.

Guys, i might have a seat opening up in the car i am going to use as my driver might need to cancel on me! Will confirm by the end of today! Who's staying along the way to dragon mart when coming from teh gardens and knows the directions hahaha i can pick you up! Does anybody know if i can just take my friends car like that or would something like an NOC or so be requiered?
Pleas if you are trying to contact me today....send me a text or email (instead of calling) and i will get back to you!Agree with Lloyd....all for yourself jut bring a bit extra inorder to be able to share :)
I'm not sure how to buy the meat :(
Guess I'll stick with a packet of chips :)

I agree with Lloyd too :). Chill Ali!
If we say....X amount of meat is needX amount of fishx amount of veggiX amount of snacks / dipsX amount of liquidesthan all the general thingsAnd devide all the above between all of usI would say the morning snack please pack something for yourself!
@Hana, this is the first time I am running 21k. I don't want to set unrealistic expectations for myself. Really want to go though. If I am in proper physical condition, I will just turn up, but don't wait for me or whatever. Thank you for your wishes:)
I will bring Fish for BBQ
No one has volunteered for getting the meat as yet .. That's the main thing :)
I think one person should pick up the meat and the rest of us should contribute ..
good point Moina...Ill update...
It's ok Muraleedharan, we'll have to have carry minimum luggage n squeeze it with the passengers in the car. But we can't drop down the number of spaces in the car. We really need ppl space. Luggage will get adjusted.
No problem Hana but the luggage space will be limited.
Murali....kan you open up for the full 7 ppl. Its still seems like we have less cars also with Olga dropping off. Thank you
olga....you dropped off :( :( ! Good luck with the RUN dear!!!
Trust we have enough spaces in 4x4 now, so I will reduce the available spaces to 3 excluding Shadi to accommodate more luggage.

We are not crossing the check point, but there is little bit of Oman to cross.
what is this checkpoints issue? are we crossing the border? do we need insurance for Oman?
I amended the sheet. If there is a need I can take my car. If no need, I prefer not to drive :)
@ Michel, this is mainly rocky/gravel tracks and some water crossing, buddy.
my car is a 4X4 however I have no experience driving off road. And I have a bad experience with it on the soft sand. Can anyone confirm if sand is hard or soft?
Guys just fill out the google document....we need to make an inventory. Maybe no rental is needed Ali.
The Mitsubishi registration is renewed. Now I can offer 4 seats.@ Ali, I didn't know that! No need I guess, we will get this sorted out.
Yeah .. Can edit now :)
It's on view only mode now ... Need to change it to "Allow others to edit"
Hana , I cannot access the spreadsheet .. I think you need to make it public ..
If you have any dietary specialties/ allergies it would be best to make sure you sort yourself out, just in case. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?pli=1&key=0ArPACoyb7T0ydFl0Y1lTZmdxZ191V3E3bjdfZm43X3c#gid=0
hi guys,Please update the spread sheet to get us a bit more organized. If you are driving a 4X4 and already agreed who your passengers are please update also.When e have the cars sorted out we can make sort out the BBQ groceries, best would be if we agree per car who is bringing what and ensuring there is enough per batch! The disposable BBQ, water, the meats and veggie options etc etc.Than we can also agree who is bringing the common things like garbage bags, tissues etc etc.
@ Ali; you can take a rented car out of UAE yes. You will only need to inform the car rental co and purchase insurance from the Gas station post Omani border, if the renatal car insurance does not include Oman. It is around AED 100 for a week time. (around 7 months ago)
For clarity guys,
My Mitsubishi, which can accomodate 4 pax is due for registration renewal (insurance is renewed). Registration renewal is a 15 minutes job. My Jeep registration is valid. However, it is a tiny car (can accomodate 1 pax). So, if more than 1 individual needs a ride, let me know to get the mitsu renewed in order not to face difficulties on borders.
Thanks Hana. It is daughter and in ICU observation for two days.
@ Ali ....really?! Dont take yourself off the w8ing list unless you are not available. Let us check the cars and pax and i will adjust your RVSP okido.@ Mura Thank you for the update. Hope all will be well with his son!
Hana, Sure, I have seats available. Let me know how many GIRLS will join me. :DSeriously, I can accomodate either 1 or 4 members, dependant on the car. So let me know, please.
Hi Hana, Arun will not be attending as his child is in hospital. He will change his RSVP later.
Again please Khalil, Shiva, ARUN, Shadi could you please update your RSVP with your contact number! Thank youGo to change RSVP ....add your number. RSVP yes. Nothing will happen just your contact details will be updated! Thank you
Indeed disposable is best, Thank you Lloyd.@ Ali not sure if you are allowed to take a rental outside of Dubai as Lloyd has mentioned earlier.But with Ahmed rsvping hopefully he has extra spaces and we re sorted?
