Ride plan form Udon to be posted later

Hi Guys,

I forward the attached email from Khun Bad, Khon Kaen.

We are going to visit Ban Home Hug at Yasothon. It is a home for orpaned children.

The trip will be sponsored by the TAT and for safety, led by the Tourist Police. The email below explains the purpose and timing of the visit, leaving from the City Pole Khon Kaen which is just past the main City gate, over the railway line on the RHS, near the fire station. Coming from the North on the Main No 2 highway, one turns left at the lights after the roadworks and just past the new Central Mall building, still under construction. Over the railway and bear right at the next lights you will see the square and the City Pole building. Turn right at the fire station and right again into the car parking area.

We expect a good number of riders including guys from Harley Davidson Bangkok.

Anyone who wishes to go direct say from Udon to Yasothon of course is very welcome and I can provide details of the location of the childrens home.

The web site is worth a visit, but is in Thai.

This should be a great trip and will be a big thing for those needy children. Please support if you can and do pass on to any contacts you have who may like to join. They are of course welcome to come by car if they wish.

Do contact me if you have any queries

Best regards,

John Gooding

Despite suffering from cancer, Mama Tew (Toi in TV) have truly devoted her life to help those kids to grow and able to survive to take care the younger at this place.

Two Plans A & B

I will go to Khon Kean Saturday th 13 th, if some wants to go with me e-mail me and I will sit a time. And return Monday Morning the 15th at 0800 from Khaon Kean.

We have made resevations for the 13 th and 14 th at the Orchid Hotel in Khon Kean for 490 per night. This ia an excellent small hotel. They provided us with covered parking for the bikes during the Khan Kean Bike week as well as Security on site. I'm told it about 1500 Meters from the start site. We will more then likey have dinner with John Gooding the first night. He will meet us at the hotel on the day of the ride and escort us to the start location.

If you can't make it and you want to donate to the event. Get it to me before Next Saturday and I will deliver it for you.

Remeber no one tells meet they are meeting with me I'm just going when the urge hits me LOL

The Hotel phone number is 085 746-1688 speak to Khun Ja. She Speaks English.
Plan B

From Udon
Those who wish can meet Koon Lucky at the PTT Gas Station on Khan Kean Highway at 0630 on 14, June 2009

Please let me know if your going so he knows and is not waiting on anyone if no one is coming. That's only fair guys.

He is going to go up an back in one day that is up to you. You can book Sunday Night at the hotel I recommend you do that immediately.

This should be a fun event wih lots of riders from all over Thailand

Hi Ray & John,
I will be heading direct to Yasothon from Sisaket on Sunday and may have a Thai rider with me - if he can get out of bed.
Dean can't make it because he has something else on.
Hope to see you there.

Cheers, Peter

Hi Peter, Good to hear you are coming and look forward to seeing you in Yasothon, the childrens home is apparently only 4km from the town.
We aim to leave KK by 8.30am and expect to arrive Yasothon sometime around 11.00 to 11.30. Hopefully we keep reasonable to schedule.

We will come from Roi Et direction on 23

The home and its founder Mae Toi, made a full page article in the Bangkok post this week, partly about the deteriorating health of Mae Toi and how she has managed to outlive all the doctors forecasts ,maybe because of her determination to keep going for the children

See you Sunday. John

Good to catch up at Yasothon John. Trust the rest of your trip went well.

Sorry you couldn't make it Ray. Hope the wog has departed.

Lucky and Tung Dee didn't make it to the orphanage. When I arrived in from Sisaket I saw them at the Rocket Park and in the main street. I spoke to Lucky at the lights but he didn't know where to go.
I didn't either so had lunch and asked around and found the place on the outskirts of town and got there in time for the speeches. I never saw Lucky and Tung Dee again.

They are doing a good job at the orphanage and hopefully can keep going to serve these kids in need.
Good turn out from the Khon Kaen Riders.
Cheers,
Peter

Not sure Colin, Aussie or Kiwi. Don't think it refers to "Western Oriental Gentleman " though.
Hope it's warming up in the UK.
Cheers Peter

Colin - while you are there - you will be interested to know that Willy and Pims restaurant has moved - 5 doors down and a little closer to me. They are now in a more substantial building with concrete walls and a beautiful wooden bar that nobody uses. Seems to be frequented by a procession of FIF's. (Fat Itinerant Farungs ?) And believe it or not Gino has a GIRLfriend. I never !!

Cheers, Peter

Controller please forgive my off topic reverie.

Good to see you there too Peter. We were very pleased with the turnout.
I am waiting for some pictures and will post a trip report.
Sorry for Lucky and Tung D. We waited for them in Khon Kaen as I had been told they were coming, but no show so I assumed they were not joining. I am suprised they did not ring me, I have sent enough mails with my phone number. Hopefully they had a good ride anyway.
Cheers, John
