CHANG MAI, THAILAND



ALL IS GOOD,    
 I AM NORTH OF THE FLOODING, IT IS DOWN IN SOUTHERN THAILAND, WE HAVE A CHARTER IN PHUKET, SOME OF THEM HAD TROUBLE GETTING NORTH TO BANGKOK TO LEAVE WITH US ON TIME, BUT IT ALL WORKED OUT. HAD A WILD NEW YEARS EVE PARTY, MY EARS ARE STILL NUMB FROM ALL THE FIREWORKS I LIT OFF. I RODE SOME ELEPHANTS, MADE FRIENDS WITH SOME MONK IN THE MOUNTAINS WITH 80 FULL GROWN TIGERS (TIGER SANTUARY) AND HUNG OUT ON SOME BEACH IN THE MOUNTAINS, THAT WAS VERY NICE. I AM UP IN CHANG MAI TODAY AT NEAR THE TOP OF THAILAND AND WILL HEAD FURTHER NORTH TOMORROW. WE HAVE ABOUT 35 GUYS ON BIKES WITH ME (SOME H.A. FROM OTHER COUNTRIES, AND A THAI BIKE CLUB CALLED DEVILS MESSENGERS TRAVELING WITH US) WILL RIDE AROUND THE COUNTRY TILL NEXT WEEK.
THE POLICE IN CHANG MAI GAVE US A POLICE ESCORT AROUND TOWN COMPLETE WITH LIGHTS AND SIRENS, ''THEY WERE TOLD WE ARE FAMOUS''....dumb bastards! WE WILL RIDE TO THE ''NORTHERN MOST POINT OF THAILAND, CONTINUE ALONG THE ''GOLDEN TRIANGLE'' MEETING POINT OF ''BURMA - ''LAOS'' - AND ''THAILAND'' AND FOLLOW THE ''MAE KONG RIVER'' SOUTH, FOR A BIT, THEN BACK DOWN TO BANGKOK. LONG TRIP WITH LOTS OF MILES. BE BACK SOON.
