Area 53, again
By christophersaul on Jan 28, 2008
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.
