It has been a very long summer and I know that all of our regular campers are just itching to get back out to the desert. It is still a little warm, but we have decided to host our first overnight trip of this season on the 28th.

This site is an easy Protected content drive from Dubai and provides a nice spot to enjoy the evening. It should also be a bit cooler out in Margham since it is away from the city.

TRANSPORTATION: Our intent is to accommodate all members who would like to attend this event. Ultimately this depends on the number of people who sign up and the vehicle space available. We will help coordinate rides as we get closer and have a better understanding of who will be attending.

PLEASE NOTE: Non-4X4 vehicles are able to make it 99% of the way to the camp site. All but Protected content of this trip is paved and easily accessible. All non-4X4 vehicles can park at this spot Protected content and we will transfer you to the camp site in one of the SUVs.

1 - Weather appropriate clothing
2 - Tent & Sleeping Bag
3 - Lamp or Flashlight
4 - Food & Snacks
5 - Drinks (Please ensure you bring adequate water)
6 - Chairs & Blankets
7 - Games & Activities

FIREWOOD & CHARCOAL: We will not be starting a fire during this trip because it is still to warm outside. However please bring charcoal because we will still be having a BBQ.

FOOD: In the past we have found that it is better to have attendees bring and contribute food items in a "potluck" manner. This usually ensures that there is adequate food for everybody and provides a wide variety to choose from.

The following are some suggested items:
- Chicken, Lamb or Beef BBQ (kebabs)
- Vegetables
- Fruits
- Salads
- Bread or other Appetizers

We will provide a BBQ grill, but it would be great to have a couple more to assist in cooking for everybody. If you have one and can contribute please bring it along.

Thank you and we look forward to camping with you soon.
