Feb 8th Desert BBQ - Al Ain

Post by prossett » 23 Jan 2008, 8:55 am

Please join me and friends for an afternoon BBQ and watch the sunset from up high an Al Ain dune.

There's an excellent place called Devil's Plunge in Al Ain, where there's easy dunes, medium dunes and difficult dunes. There's a really high dune that has an easy climb to a ledge, so that everybody can make it up there and it's an ideal viewpoint over the sunset and city.

Best part is that there's tarmac track that heads right into the sands, so that non-4x4 people can park there and either walk up the crest all the way to the top, or catch a ride up.

Family and friends are welcome. 8) This is a multi-club event, with friends from DubaiDesertClub joining in. Beginners and first-timers welcome, you can drive at your level with some friendly desert pros to help you.

I will meet you at 2PM Friday Feb 8th at the entrance to Al Ain, first roundabout take a left and park at Golden Burger cafeteria, opposite the ADNOC gas station.

Bring either a packed picnic sandwich or small BBQ to grill your favourite meats. We'll leave just after sunset.

Here it is: Devil's Plunge!

And here's why it's called Devil's Plunge - my buddy hakan going over the top crest 8) (we won't do this!!! :| )

And here's me in Elsie going up the easy way for the view:

No, it's in Al Shwaiba, just north of the fertilizer factory. Airport dunes can get a little tricky if there's newbies driving - at Devil's Plunge there easy, medium and difficult dunes all in the same area, plus there's a nice easy-to-reach high ledge for us to sit.

The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'till I'm sane
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me.
