  1. I was there last week and loads of people were having problems. I went for a Non-O multiple entry and it was fine.
  2. Thanks for all the help, now I have a few options.
  3. Muang Petchabun. UK embassy are not the most helpful at the best of times but might be worth pursuing.
  4. Thanks, I will try this route.
  5. An acquaintances father was married to a woman in Petchabun and unfortunately his father died. His father was cremated and the ashes interned in a temple. My acquaintance would like to find the temple his father is interned in and try to contact his widow to get some personal effects back. What would be the best way to do this. Contact the local Amphur office in person (he has never been to Thailand and I am 500km away) or is there a private detective service even in Bangkok. Or some other way? Any help much appreciated.
  6. It really is perspective..I think. I remember this particular winter, back home. Yes it really is perspective. If you were in your mid-sixties, having worked 40 years in the rice fields with 0% body fat, sleeping outside with nothing but a thin blanket and used with the temperatures being in the 30's (Celsius). Then no doubt the sudden shock would kill you. Which it does to many of the locals. No doubt in that particular winter you were in your centrally-heated, fully insulated house. If you stepped outside you were dressed like an Eskimo (who was probably in a T-shirt thinking you looked like an idiot). Use a bit of common-sense <deleted> before posting stuff like that. If the temperatures in Europe get over 30C people are falling over all over the place. bad day, huh? don't quite understand your last line....common sense? I think you are taking that a bit far. The photo you don't like (for whatever reason) was for fun....not to draw nasty attacks...thanks. Last line means that people in Europe start to suffer heat stress, dehydration and heart failure when the temperature gets over 30 C as witnessed last year. As you said "It really is perspective."

  8. "The others were the representatives of Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Suriname, Haiti, Sri Lanka, India, Nigeria, Guyana, Ghana, the Dominican Republic, Scotland, Brazil, Bolivia, Mexico, Peru, Japan, Kenya and Tonga." Last time I looked Scotland was still part of UK.
  9. I bought some Alpinestars gear in Singapore, jacket and gloves. It was all made in Vietnam and the quality was definitely worse than previous stuff I have had. Ironically the Alpinestars boots I have are made in Thailand and are exceptionally well made. Sure those TCX boots will be good for a few years, I might get a pair myself.
  10. Hi Dave. I have been looking for a decent pair of boots for years. Contrary to what ll2 said I had bad experience with a pair of Sidi Vertigo Goretex boots. They weren't waterproof and the soles fell off. The soles fall off a lot of my boots for some reason, the zips go, the stitching breaks up, they start to leak etc. TCX Infinity boots are top quality, a lot of the bike plod in the UK use them. BMW rebrand them and whack a premier on them along with a BMW badge. I have been looking for a simple boot, stitched soles, high legs, easy on/off and waterproof. 2 years ago I bought a pair of Alpinestar Scouts from the US. Think they were US$200 plus shipping. They are by far the best boots I have owned. I ride in all weather, including prolonged wet weather. I rode up to Chiang Mai, 900km in the pissing rain and my feet stayed dry. They have seen a lot of wet weather and mud, they still look reasonable too. Would be ideal for your 800 Trumpet, they do take a while to break in though.
