lol.. yesterday morning there was some sort of checkin going on near Al Rawda Compound, I was surprised, why would they want to check on a friday morning... but there alot of people that come back from the dunes and some could be drunk. When I got near the cop, he didnt say anything and let me go, they were just looking for 4x4s.
