For those who don't know me, I have achieved Old Timer status. Been a member here since 2005. Im on the right in the banner with my wife. I negotiated a riding trip to Thailand each year into the 3rd child agreement, although it has been every 2nd year for the last many years. I came over with my oldest son when he turned 13 2 years ago, and in January will do the same with my middle son, Eric. We will do the MHS Loop over one or 2 nights, leaving 9th Jan, and then probably head out to Nan, Chiang Khong and Mae Sai, over 3 or 4 nights. Back in the 'good old days' there seemed to be plenty of riders up to hit the road together, but last few trips it's been a lot harder to get riding buddies enthused to hit the road for a few days. It would be great to have some company on the road, but otherwise I hope to catch up with some of you in Chiang Mai. David, I hope to see you in Chiang Khong.
