    There's no doubt you guys enjoy yourself in the North of Thailand.
    You really do get around. I'm also glad you find the old GT Rider maps & books useful.
    Thanks once again for the contribution(s).

    Thanks to all you guys for the great photos and posts on this year-old thread. The DCU (Dedicated Companion Unit) and I are headed out next week to celebrate our anniversary and plan on the first night at Navasoung Resort. Since I'm a Finn too I get that secret Finnish discount! Last time I was out there I lost a day with a flat tire so hoping the Rubber Gods are good to us.
