More Desert Fun

dual-nissans.jpgWell, I did it.  I took my new Xterra out to the dunes of Qatar.  It was a blast, and the Xterra handled the sand extremely well.

I went with several friends yesterday out to the desert for a good time of relaxing, playing on the dunes, and eating lamb.  It was my second time to go out to the desert, and it was my first time to actually drive a car on the sand.  I drove a four-wheeler on sand dunes in Cabo San Lucas, so I had an idea of how to drive without the traction of a hard surface.  Obviously, a large vehicle is different than a four-wheeler, but the basics are the same:  keep moving, and give it gas if you start to slow down.

I’m really looking forward to more trips to the desert with current and future friends.  When the weather starts getting hotter, we’ll go later in the day and spend the night.  That will be tons of fun.

Check out pics of this trip here.  I’ve also made an album dedicated to Dwight and his travels.

Tomorrow is Easter, and I am taking the day off to celebrate Christ’s victory over death and the life He has given me.  What a great thing to celebrate!

    Did you know that McCain announced his vice-presidential candidate last night to be Dwight Schrute? 🙂 Haha.
