Liwa

Postby mar1 » Mon Dec 21, 2009 11:07 pm

there is an area in the empty quarter of the saudi desert that crosses part into the Emirates.

its called Liwa (part of the Rub el Khali Desert).

very technical dunes, massive climbs, huge pitfalls, and most of all amazing sands u can drive on!!

here are a few pix of our drive there...

Nice pics! Looks like a lot of fun. The only sand in my neck of the woods is the stuff you sink into mid-wheel.

We have some dunes a few hours north at Pismo beach...nothing like that though...I haven't tried my rig in the sand...I guess its time.

i would prefer the safety of 6 airbags and a roll cage in a pathfinder instead, on those 100+ meter slipfaces. :wink:
