Any further and we will have to get a Lao visa to do our 90 day reports.

The airport has metered taxis now. http://guideubon.com/news/view.php?t=44&s_id=17&d_id=16 Sent from my iPhone using ThaiVisa app

That is good news Bergen, thanks for the heads up. A friend sent me this story in the Australian mainstream press which made me chuckle in more ways then one. http://www.traveller.com.au/ubon-ratcha

The Highway 24 enhancements into Ubon (Ubon to Kantharalak intersection of highway 24 up to the existing four lane highway from Samrong to Ubon Ring Road) are already well underway. 

 

The section from highway 24 at the Ubon to Kantharalak intersection up through Benchalak on Hwy 2085 to its junction with Hwy 2178 looks like completing early 2019 (already widened with clay infill progressing and extra bridges already have established foundations and lower structures). Ditto for a short piece of Hwy 2178 heading further up towards Samrong and Ubon.

 

No signs of anything starting on a 13.5km section of 2178 that leads up to its existing four lane part (between Samrong and Ubon). I wonder whether there is a land purchase issue here that may delay that final chunk for some time. The utility poles marking the government land available for road widenings seem unusually close together on this section. Maybe even needing a new road over paddy instead of a widening.

 

Living in Amphur Kantharalak means I have a keen interest. It'll cut my frequent trips up to Ubon centre to about 55 mins from 1hr 10. Unless of course the police seek to take advantage and install effective speed cameras as is there wont in many other road widening schemes. As we all know here in Thailand the safest roads for exceeding 90 are the most effectively policed!

I want to apply for the yellow book.

We live in Ubon, in a village (Moo 13) near highway 2050 (Ubon-Trakan). Not so far from our home is: Rai Noi Sub-district office (องค์การบริหารส่วนตำบลไร่น้อย). Can I apply there for the yellow book or does this has to be done at Muang Ubon Ratchathani District Office opposite Thung Si Muang?

The yellow house book has to be applied for at a district office (Amphoe) which in your case is Muang Ubon Ratchaithani. A sub district office cannot process the application.

I'll need this soon too. There are stores all over the place that do this. No idea who is actually skilled at it. If you remember, please let me know how it goes.

We bought our dual camera for our H-RV on Lazada and had it installed (front and back) at that shop. 

No problem.

heads up:

 

Isaan News Forum (go to Isaan Home Page - above the pinned threads) has an informative reprise on plans for expansion of Ubon (so-called International) Airport - new additional terminal/car parking/doubling of capacity etc, based around the Thai Transport Ministers visit. Should be of interest to many expats in this end of Lower Isaan

Here's the link. So in 6 or 7 years we can finally get a flight back to Chiang Mai and Phuket? Or 20 new flights to Bangkok each day...
