You gave us recommendations on the next drive? And we decide rather than selecting one option, we decided to do them all!!! Option "d", All of the Above!!

So here is the plan, we will start Friday afternoon with an off-road desert drive, then setup camp around sunset for BBQ, chase it up with movie (karak chai), and then cozy up to sleep under the stars!!

We will divide the group into 2 groups for the desert drive. Then meetup at the same camp site for the rest of the evening.

Group 1: Beginners & Me + Marshals

Group 2: Intermediate Convoy

Beginners are highly advised to attend!!!!

Non 4x4 members can directly join us at campsite. One time pick and drop will be arranged by us. Pick up 6:30 pm and drop off 10:30 pm for non campers (pls coordinate with organizers for location)
