    1982 & 1st trip to Doi Ang Khang.

    I went with my brother & all these guys, from Mr Hong at Sriphum guesthouse.

    The road up - R1249 - was all dirt!
    Once in Ang Khang the Thai guys knocked off a couple of big bottles of Mekong whisky & then wanted to drive back to Chiang Mai in the dark & cold.
    My brother & I chickened out - wanted to live longer - & we spent the night sleeping on the wooden floor of a hut in the royal project.

    The next day we had a better look around & saw some of the poppy fields on the border.

    seeing poppy fields in those days was "no big deal."

    More Classic Photos. Such a Harmless looking Plant the Poppie! A Great Day out up Doi Ang Kang and down to Fang for a Night!

    in some ways Doi Ang Khang has not changed a great deal.
    For some people too, working at DAK the royal project has been & is their life.

    A happy brither & I, plus Khun Piak from the Royal project. I understand he is now in Petchabun?

    Incredible pics. Wonder where all these people are now. If they could just see themselves on these photos, loved to see the reaction.
