And now that midterm exams are behind, there is one more week of classes before a two week break. The SW has started dialogue with a few parties about driving down to Phuket on the bike again. The SW was planning to go see his son there anyhow when he recieved an inquiry from an Isarn (NE Thailand) based American teacher who wanted to drive his 125cc bike from Isarn to Bangkok to Phuket during the nationwide October school break.Considering October promises much rains and some flooding, it probably isn’t the best time of year to go cross country on a motorbike, though with a small group, it sounded like the adventure not to pass up since the Siamerican didn’t get to make the trip last June on the bike.
The important thing is not to rush it and set aside atleast four to five days for possible delays, stopping along the way at a few worthy spots.
A few other interested parties from Uni also expressed interest about the trip, so it’s looking like the south-bound gang might be 4 to 5 guys, though logistics will have to be designed further before any sure commitments and plans are set. Stay tuned for more details soon.
