Area 53, again

We had a great trip to Area 53 again a couple of weeks ago. Why Area 53 again? Because it's great fun to drive around!

I love this picture, courtesy of Mrs Saul, of Simon being de-stucked. Note he's attached to another stuck car. This is why you go out in threes....

Pete had a sticky moment too. Whilst we were digging him out before giving him a push, some helpful guys on quad bikes drove up and asked if we needed any help, which was very friendly of them. I declined as we were fine. 'Push him down the hill' was their helpful advice. Thanks chaps, I'd never have worked that one out.

Unusually we saw some camels right at the top of a big dune 'hill'. Usually they stay around the base of the steeper hills, but they were obviously feeling as adventurous as we were.

So far we've had some great drives this season. I'm that bit more confident and am happy to lead trips where previously I would only have followed.

Up and over.

Hi Saul! My wife, our two little girls and I are about to move to Dubai and wonder which cars to go for. We want at least one that is fit for the desert/dunes but still works as a family car. Any recommendations? I understand not every 4WD is really up to the job...? Cheees, Roberto
