Dune Bashing

While in Dubai I went on a day trip out into the desert for a 'desert safari' which was pretty much just dune bashing in a 4x4. Great fun, except for the guy in the back seat throwing up half the time. :S I'm so glad the driver put me in the front, as I'm pretty sure I'd have been throwing up if I were put in the back.
This is the 1st of the series of videos I took. It is also the shortest. If you have time, watch them all. :) If not, maybe just the 5th one? (or maybe the 2nd one?? or 3rd?)... Well, actually, I love them all. They are all slightly different.

This one is the 2nd one. I love the combination of music and atmosphere, and it really shows the movement of the 4x4. While driving, I kept the camera horizontal, so if everything else isn't, that's the angle that the truck is at. Quite scary at times!!!

This one is the 3rd video. I love the music, Desert Rose, and at around 1:10 in the video you can see the sand going over the top of the truck. Love it.

Video #4, dune bashing to some Eminem. :)

Video #5, still to EMINEM. Actually, this one might show the most in terms of ups and downs and sideways.
