As some/most will probably know, there was a very bad incident back in November in Laos with a motorcycle tour company that has left a Thai guy called "Yoi" potentially facing up to 15 years behind bars. See topic http://board.gt-rider.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=1808 for details. What hit me was DavidFL's post in the thread about happy new year and to spare a thought for poor old Yoi. Personally, I have never met him but having spent a couple of unpleasant nights temporarily behind bars in the UK, I can't begin to imagine what the conditions must be like in a country such as Laos, especially knowing that you could be in there "long term". That spurred me onto thinking that maybe with all the activity of GT-Rider people visiting CNX in the "high" season, we could liaise with various popular hangouts to put a jamjar or something up for contributions to make the guy's time a bit easier. I know we are not all rich but just bunging in a few baht into a pot and having it collected once in a while, would be a nice gesture and make a BIG difference to Yoi and his family. I've talked with DavidFL about this and for sure if we raise some cash it will go directly to Yoi, so for the time being, just post your feelings/ideas and then we can setup some collection points at popular GT-R establishments (suggestions welcome) with the co-operation of the owners and maybe do a little to help the guy out. Cheers, Pikey.
