11 Mar 2008 Abu Dhabi - Dubai Highway Part 1
On the 11th of March 2008, I was with my friend Assim. We were chilling at
a coffee shop called Dar El Hai in Abu Dhabi Khalidiah. It was 03:00 am
when I asked him to join me for a trip to Dubai after the sun rise to
finish some work there. I told him " The earlier we hit the road, the
fastest we reach Dubai" . He suggested that we leave at 06:00 am because 5
am is too early.
When it was six we took the road on our misterious trip. "What if we got
into an accident?" Assim said, I was not happy with his comment so I said:
"What If you say something better than what're you saying now". We got off
the Um Al Nar bridge and by the time we're getting close to Al Shahama
City, the fog was blinding everyone. I couldn't see but 30 to 40 m ahead of
me. I was driving by a 80 km/h with my windows roled down.
I saw some headers flashing me from the back, I wondered " What's wrong
with that Jaguar owner? " he passed me with him waving me with a sign that
I didn't get at the begining. So I looked at my dash board and noticed that
my car lights are on auto switch and it didn't turn on, so I turned it on
and also my fog lights too. Five minutes after that I saw ghousts waving at
me, I slowed down fast hearing an egyption accient asking me to get off the
road. I knew then that there's a pile a head of me.
Quick, I took the side of the road and stoped totally. Shouted at Assim to
jump out of the car and followed him from the passenger door. I then heard
the anger of the mital, the sound of the breaks and the smashing of the
cars one by one. after 5 minutes that seemed like 5 hours, everything went
hush. With the pile of the cars and its heat the fog was cleared, and what
I saw made me hlod my NOKIA E90 and film my 17 minutes video that I've part
it into 9 parts to share it with all of you.
This video was brodcasted on Abu Dhabi Television in Oloum El Dar News Show
and upon it we had the exclusive interview with His Highness Shaikh Saif
Bin Zayed in our studios to talk about that morning, The Tuesday Fog.
Jeep Rubicon and Toyota FJ Cruiser Off-Road in Hawaii
We witnessed first hand the capabilities of both vehicles on the trails.
I'm personally a Toyota guy, having owned several Toyota 4x4s, an FJ and
now a Tacoma. They aren't evenly matched because the Jeeps articulation and
flexibility with the solid front axle, shorter wheel base and being lighter
weight. Driver experience, error and patience were also contributing
factors in how each vehicle performed.
We didn't create this video to make one seam better than the other. Ohana
Trails is a Jeep Club here that we were filming and by chance, a group of
FJ Cruiser owners were convoying with them. Unfortunately, we had more
video of the Jeeps over the FJ's.
All in all it was an epic day up in the mountains at Peacock Flats on Oahu
looking over the North Pacific.
