At our destination, a little tired from the ride.
This was our 5th day in Egypt. We signed up with the travel agency to do the short list of things whilst we were in Sharm El Sheikh, and the 5th day was for doing some four wheeling. We took a bus to the quad running place to be greeted with a bunch of run down four wheelers and alot of dust. We were told that we needed some glasses, which I didn't bring. So our tour guide let me borrow a pair of glasses. Also, they just let us know that we would need some cloth to cover and protect our faces from dust. I had some cloth on me (who knows why), but Maria needed some. She purchased some cloth to cover her face at a decent fare and the people working tied them onto our faces. After a little wait for some more Quads we all hopped on (2 on ours) and started to drive. We went for quite a ways (my quad did not run the best), and eventually it turned dark. The leader of our group was riding a moped since his quad was having problems. I nearly watched him lose control once in some loose sand but he kept it together and we continued. We stopped at another little camp to get some drinks and relax. We did not stay too long before we were off again. We returned to the starting point and that concluded that. It was an ok experience but I feel that there were better things that could of been done. But nonetheless, no regrets.
