We met at Miguel’s Nong Hoi, had a coffee then set off heading east along the 1141 then onto the 1317 towards Mae On



At a crossroads we took a right onto the 1006, stopping for a photo break



Its looking good in those hills right now



Just before Mae On its a right onto the 1229



A nice bendy road but the surface is pot holed in places







We ride on and at the end of the 1229 its a right onto the 2031







Another pleasant ride along here which is a good surface from start to its junction with hwy,11



The buffalo was happy to pose for the camera but its owner was not



Last month I was busy taking down my runner bean supports, Hes just putting them up



Good scenery along here as usual for this time of year



About five kms before reaching hwy 11 we take a left onto the 2026 which is a new road for all of us



Some good views along here









Its a good surface with some curves along the way





It brings us to hwy 11 just east of where the 2031 joins it



A bit of colour along hwy 11 which we take to past Lampang where we take a left onto the 1348 to ride to Mae Mo



Stopping for a rest at the Huai Sai Reservoir









We ride on heading northerly on the east side of the mine



Stopping at the Mae Kham Reservoir















87000km and still going strong, now equipped with GPS



Now its along this track which according to the gps goes towards hwy 1



At Tha Si Weir the asphalt finishes. N18.24.763 E099.44.832







Its time to head offroad



A pleasant ride through the woods







The D-Trackers are better suited to this thats for sure



Some logging going on here, at this intersection the gps shows both ways going to hwy 1 so we take the most direct one





We get onto hwy 1 at N18.25197 E099.44.240 after a nice short offroad jaunt



We head west along hwy 1 for about ten km then take a right onto the 1335 for a couple of kms then its a left onto an unnumbered road which runs through this village









At a junction we take a left and now we are on the 4207



Lots of rice lying flat along here



At the end of the 4207 we take a left onto the 1035 towards Lampang then its the 1037 towards Hang Chat and then hwy 11 back to Cnx



I eat at the Green Oasis, a German restaurant in the city at N18.47.640 E098.59.518



Saturday night is always a buffet for 185 Baht.

Re: Three Go Exploring

Nice story Colin, even a little off road in there! Great to see you've got the photo transfer all working.

you can attach the gpx file to the report if you compress it first, not a big deal as they can get it from the link you supplied, thanks for the report - Phil

Re: Three Go Exploring

Captain,

The buffet seems to be something I should try - normally I go to Gunther's place (N18 47 51.1 E99 08 31.7) near Doi Sakhet (150 Baht all you can eat buffet on Sunday lunch time) but plan to try the Green Oasis on a Saturday evening.

Colin,

On the menu they have German and Thai food but the Sunday Lunch Buffet is basically all German food like Schweinshaxe (Pork Knuckle),Eisbein, Kassler Ribs, Sausages, Schnitzels, Salads, Sauerkraut, Bread, and a lot more, etc. Coffee and Ice-cream are included in the buffet price (seems to be 170 Baht now according to http://cm-eat.blogspot.com/2010/08/g-ge ... usage.html).

Better be there early as the place is packed from 11 in the morning or so till well into the afternoon. It is not a luxury place but the food is very good and, as they are butchers as well, you can buy sausages and a lot of other nice things like ham, etc. on the premises for home cooking.
