When I come down from the mountains and head sout east I mix with people like Dave where I get free tea or coffee and if I head north west I mix with people like Fred who charges for tea (and saves the tea bag to charge me next time as well) and Paul who doesn't AND gives me free biscuits.

Mind to be fair Fred does a good line in egg and cress and also cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off and he ALWAYS saves the crusts for me, sometimes for months at a time.

What is a poor man like me supposed to do?

There's nout free in this world Bill, free tea coffee in N/S A !!! if H/M remember's correctly the last time you visited Dave you ended up paying for all the food at his local restaurant . I rest my case.

As I have pointed out before Paul has to give his bit's away because no one in their right mind would pay for it, and I don't save the tea bag's although I would do so if I could why's that I hear peep's ask well Paul go's down my used teabag pot there the one's you get when you pop round to his place, as regard's to the crust's they have never been month's old week's maybe but not month's. Tip if you dunk the crust's in the yes I know expencive tea they soften up quite quickly and will be delish.

H/M K.P.P.

Sorry that I missed your post Fred but I have taken up the Egyptian Army PT lessons in the afternoons lately.

Chingford cheapskate indeed, Welcome back Dave, had the Dragon boat racing last weekend a rip roaring success by all account's well that's except for pore old OLDGIT as he got cought in a storm on Sunday, did H/M go ??? well no as he watched it on local TV (Cable don't you know) as I have said before H/M doesn't mix with the lower class and there were lot's there from all over the place, I have been informed that some peep's from N/S had tried to move in some were even spotted trying to camp out in make shift tent's if you don't mind under one of the bridge's, rum pore show if you ask me the thing's peep's get up to if you let them come in for the day without a visa, note to self must bring that up at the next K.P.P meeting.

All over by the shouting now, H/M noticed today that they were pulling down the stall's along the river bank, about time to as they had coursed a bit of a tail back on some of our normally quiet Soi's.

Bill,

Paul your Mr free tea man I think will have to raise his price's that's because his all sing all dancing Honda is no more seem's the engine at one time has been run without oil or just lack of servicing, 'normal Thai style' well it's given up the ghost and is now stripped down in Honda's awaiting new part's to-wit piston, cam shaft, valves, small/big end, rocker's, ect you name it it's buggered cost wait for it is EEEEEEEEEEEEEEK 18,000bt but the good bit is he will get a 10% discount on part's, oh and 6 month's guarantee, Dont you just love the second hand market here.

For that price you would almost manage to afford an oil change in the cold country.

On that subject my Fortuner full service cost me £30 or 1,450bt here. My friend's Kia EEEEK cost him just under £300 or over 14.000bt in England so your not far orrrf.

Well I am the 4th owner of my Phantom, all farangs when I bought it 3 years ago.

Regularly serviced at Honda dealers.

I got it with 5,5xx km on the clock at years old in in the 3 years I have had it I put on 36,xxx km.

It has taken me whereever I wanted to go, even BKK and back in the same day once, and the only problem I have with it is that there is no warp factor attachment for it.

I got T-boned in N/S last year and I could still ride it home though slowly and painfully and 9,xxx baht put it back on the road as good as new.

Paul was just unlucky I think.

Think how much it would cost for your engine if it was like that.

Bill, I take my hat off to you for managing a return to BKK in one day, surely a feat which rivals Shackleton and Scott at their best. My Phantom is patiently waiting for me to get as far as the National Park you live near, but I never have time. Once I drive the 25kms to Klong Lan, I am buggered and need to turn round

You hit the nail on the head when you said all farang's were the previous owner's they service them 'normaly' Paul's honda had had all Thai owner's prior to him hence the problem's no service history as I have said before Thai never service there vehicles well only the first time because that's free.

In a few week's H/M will be returning to the UK but not as long a Dave/Nong just a matter of week's, do you think that I will receive a medal or several on my return. Yes Yes H/M know's he will be missed so no need to go down that road. Update on Paul Bill the price has gone up on his Honda small problem now with the gear box so nearer 20,000bt.

There is a good chance you might be refused entry, not many true brits work for HM govt these days and as for medal, I would try in the sweetie shop, they were doing fake gold medals, it of course be molten by the time you get back! In the meantime have some good bevies whilst you can, enjoy the infrastructure, bacon sandwiches, real chips, steaks.............its all a distant memory now, but you have to go back to know when and where you are well off.

Don't worry Dave H/M has been swatting up to become conversent in English and not doing to bad, have used the new Indian version that's because the last time H/M arrived at Heathrow terminal 3 I thought I had got on the wrong plane and arrived in Calcutta, this time H/M should be Ok. But any tip's wouldn't go amiss.

As far as the medal's go yes have seen them in my local sweety shop would you like me to bring some back for you oh and exeter can't leave him out now can we.

I can get good steak bacon in Makro and my chip's are always home made.

Re the infrastructure they haven't put up yet more mosques have they, it wouldn't surprise me as there must be lot's of spare land lying about with all the pub's that have been closing down. H/M will of course be giving full detail's on his return. I wont have as much time as you Dave, hopefuly will only be there for a matter of week's that's with a bit of luck. In the mean time you will have to put up with H.M side kick's. Not orrrf yet another you'll be pleased to hear couple of week's to go. Am I looking forward to it well you tell me, but it is playing on my mind some what.

I left home as the sun was coming up and got home in the dark.

The last bit up from N/S was the worst as I ran through very heavy rain and thunderstorms.

For the next couple of days I walked like a cowboy with no horse.

Local football, D2. After weekends poor result, Nan FC - Nakhon Sawan FC 1-0, looks like we do not make it to the relegation playoffs. 4th place in table, 5 points to 3th and 3 games to play.

But Paknampho NSRU will make it, they are 2nd place now behind Chiang Mai. So season in Nakhon Sawan will not end this month, wish all the best to NSRU to D1 relegation matches.
