Default Hello!

Hello all, my first thread so be gentle.

Not moving out to sunny Dubai yet but hopefully will be across in January. My wife has a job QS'ing lined up so i'll be coming across too to keep her out of trouble.

I see it as an opportunity to try something new after 16 years in design & print.

I would like to try my hand as a driver/guide on one of the many offroad safari experiences.

Question is - does anyone know how I may make this happen other than trying to find them through the web and individually emailing them?

Looking forward to getting out there!

Craig

The guys that do this have been driving through the desert since they were old enough to reach the pedals.. are you experienced in dune bashing?

Hi,

No experience in dunes. I've done some off road 4x4, quad biking and have a big trail bike which I get up to the Yorkshire dales on regularly. Willing to learn though!

Due to my wifes job it I wouldn't really be doing it for the money i'd be doing it more for the experience. Doesn't mean I could do it for free though!

I presumed 'offroading' is something that could be learnt. I do have great people skills, business sense and stamina gained from running my own business for the past 5 years. I'm very hard working.


...Just read the other post. I could buy some shades and wear a head robe if it would get me the job. Don't mind getting in character for the part!

If I can do it...anyone can...
It's nothing like any other off roading, cause the sand is not solid like rocks...and it changes all the time...but it's the best feeling ever to 'concur' those dunes...

Well...You sound like a rich guy who doesn't care how much he makes...normally safari trip drivers make 5-6,000AED/month(I'm guessing, someone correct me if I'm wrong...),so,in your case, since you have a posh accent and hail from a posh area in the world, you could touch 7-8,000AED a month...
And allow me to be judgemental,you'll blow that on boozing...

Seasoned pro. Man & boy! Go on, ask me a design & print related question!
