The route 108, 121, 3035, 1013, 5118, 5119, 5389, 5032, 1269, 121N

Total distance 239 km

Late last night I found this little fella in the guesthouse where I stay, am I right in assuming its a baby Banded Krait?

If so its not the most welcome of guests there, fortunately it was not killed and was released outside to slither away

Out of town along the 108 then a right onto the 121 then a left onto the 3035 to follow the canal road to San Pa Tong, here I take the 1013

A pleasant scenic ride too

A well surfaced twisty road to start with





Further along and a friendly elephant

Now the baby one is rushing over to join us







As I ride further out and start climbing the road gets seriously potholed



The road numbers keep changing, here its the start of the 5119 and it looks like theres been some recent rain













Plenty of lettuces growing out this way



Always a great view from out along here







Someones got some transplanting to do

A nice new house

The neighbours one isnt in quite the same condition though

The road has now become the 5389

Its time for the 5.5km dirt section

Unfortunately this is the last photo from todays trip as I forgot the charge the cameras battery and it died on me.
I ride through to the 5032 turn left and ride until the asphalt finishes at N18.56.004 E098.28.130 then turn around and ride to Samoeng.
The road is good in places but lots of potholes in others, at Samoeng I take the 1269 then the 121N to CNX

A Mississippi Bayou burger at Pinkys wings tonight for 165 Baht.
