We are almost never at our registered address as we travel around renting for months at a time........is that going to be a problem if they ever decide to drop in on us?

 

The Thai relatives who live there will say they haven't seen us for months!!!

They'll inform you when the visit will be.

 

I'd make a point to be there just to save potential ball aches.

Do they make surprise visits, or let you know in advance when they are coming?

First I have heard of that.

They visit only once when you move to another province or apply for your first visa extension

 

A surprise visit would make no sense whatsoever. 

What if I was out shopping?

Mmmmm...the biggest ball ache is having to be there (a very long drive to the back of beyond)........I wonder.....we have gone for a 12 month rent at the moment.....should I change my registered address to this rented address?

My first visit was 3 years ago and was unannounced. I was in Scotland for my mother's funeral and the wife video called me. She explained my situation and showed him the memorial card in case he didn't believe me. He did, but still came again a week after my return to meet in person.

It's great having all these 'contacts' ( but almost everyone claims to know 'someone' ) however i've seen many 'contacts' abandon so called friends when push comes to shove...

 

Proceed with caution.

Agreed, and also it is very common for senior police to get moved around so you never know how the replacement would react. Good for you Natai Beach, that must make a big difference to your lifestyle. I assume you are a fluent Thai speaker, which helps a great deal.

 

Where i live there is only the local Poo Yai, who is friendly, but no police or senior government officials. Tha amphur is an hour away in Sangkhla Buri where I almost never go. My regular office in Kanchanaburi is more than 2 hours away so I only go when absoluteley neccessary (to find a bar or restaurant and go to Makro).

I actually had no interest in getting these contacts for the sake of having contacts. 
it just fell into place because of me volunteering to help out, as I appreciate the community in Natai Beach/Khok Kloy and have spare time and was asked to join in.

It is a small community with only two degrees of separation. If you don’t know somebody here you will know somebody who does. It is a very friendly place. I would say less than 20 foreigners live here so the Thais are still friendly and not jaded like in some areas.
