  • Amreen K.

    February 17, 2012

  • Amreen K.

    Ray is bringing a disposable grill too. So v have 4 of them now. That's enough I guess.

    February 17, 2012

  • Muraleedharan

    I am bringing one disposable grill

    February 17, 2012

  • Amreen K.

    At the moment, according to the list, Moina and Ahmad are bringing the disposable BBQ grills. I guess we need more. Any volunteers?

    February 17, 2012

  • Michel Y.

    If everyone brings meat, who will bring the bbq??

    February 17, 2012

  • Muraleedharan

    @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:)

    February 15, 2012

  • Muraleedharan

    I will bring Fish for BBQ

    February 15, 2012

  • Haden P.

    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 ..

    February 15, 2012

  • ASMA H.

    good point Moina...Ill update...

    February 15, 2012

  • Muraleedharan

    Done

    February 15, 2012

  • Amreen K.

    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.

    February 15, 2012

  • Muraleedharan

    No problem Hana but the luggage space will be limited.

    February 15, 2012

  • Hana

    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

    February 15, 2012

  • Hana

    olga....you dropped off :( :( ! Good luck with the RUN dear!!!

    February 15, 2012

  • Muraleedharan

    Trust we have enough spaces in 4x4 now, so I will reduce the available spaces to 3 excluding Shadi to accommodate more luggage.

    February 14, 2012

  • Muraleedharan

    We are not crossing the check point, but there is little bit of Oman to cross.

    February 14, 2012

  • Michel Y.

    what is this checkpoints issue? are we crossing the border? do we need insurance for Oman?

    February 14, 2012

  • Michel Y.

    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.

    February 14, 2012

  • Michel Y.

    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?

    February 14, 2012

  • Hana

    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.

    February 14, 2012

  • Haden P.

    Yeah .. Can edit now :)

    February 14, 2012

  • Hana

    sorry....and now?

    February 14, 2012

  • Haden P.

    It's on view only mode now ... Need to change it to "Allow others to edit"

    February 14, 2012

  • Hana

    try again

    February 14, 2012

  • Haden P.

    Hana , I cannot access the spreadsheet .. I think you need to make it public ..

    February 14, 2012

  • Hana

    If you have any dietary specialties/ allergies it would be best to make sure you sort yourself out, just in case.

  • Hana

    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.

    Thx.

    February 14, 2012

  • Muraleedharan

    Thanks Hana. It is daughter and in ICU observation for two days.

    February 14, 2012

  • Hana

    @ 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. :D
    Seriously, I can accomodate either 1 or 4 members, dependant on the car. So let me know, please.

    Thanks.

    February 14, 2012

  • Muraleedharan

    Hi Hana, Arun will not be attending as his child is in hospital. He will change his RSVP later.

    February 14, 2012

  • Hana

    Again please Khalil, Shiva, ARUN, Shadi could you please update your RSVP with your contact number! Thank you
    Go to change RSVP ....add your number. RSVP yes. Nothing will happen just your contact details will be updated! Thank you

    February 14, 2012

  • Hana

    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?
