Well its pretty cool in our quite new Central Mall here in Khon Kaen, if you need even cooler, then head for Dreamworld near Rangsit BKK which will allow you to go toboganning on a real ice/snow slope.

Will be there on Monday morning Ray at least if I can find your place (John helped quite a bit). The coordinates you sent me, after quite a bit a bit of massaging, probably will enable me to find your office - so please put the aircon on full blast on Monday morning.

Would be good to see you Ray. We're staying at the Kings Hotel in the centre and John Gooding will come up from KK on wednesday and stay over that night too. I got a group rate discount of 450B/night as there's 10 of us so if you want that mention that your with the Tony's Big Bikes/Pikey group.

Cheers,

Pikey.

I note that the weather forecast is predicting temps overnight of 14C Tues and Wed and 29C Wednesday and 30C Thursday daytimes in Loei. After the roasting of the last few days/nights, will be nice if it happens, but may need that cardigan out in the wee hours in Loei town :D
So to answer Ray's original question where is it cooler? Maybe Loei, Tuepm on.

Thats until you get there Jerry then you will wish that you were still here.

I dont get all this its too hot to ride malarky, try being in a place like the Uk then you would really appreciate Thailands heat. I just get out there and ride whatever the temperature, I will leave the complaining until I cant ride anymore, then I will have good reason to complain
Capt the beauty of riding is it's an individual thing, we all get to do it the way we want :wink: :D :D :D :D :D :D

It was great meeting Pikey and the troops from Chaing Mai, we went up in the pickup, boring as can be but that aircon wasn't bad. :lol:

Ian turned me on to a back brace made for riding so that's on order, thanks

One of the guys asked me about the night life in Udon saying Chaing Mai was leaving a bit to want. Been out of that scene for a long time. So I took a cruise to farrang area the other day, it's there. But, the ladies are going to look a lot better at closing time then when you first go in. Maybe there is a better crop in the later hours don't know. :lol: :lol: :lol:

WARNING
Heat stroke warning as country sizzles
By Pongphon Sarnsamak,
Onravee Tangmeesang,

The Nation
Published on May 12, 2010

With temperatures across the country hitting 40 degrees Celsius, the Public Health Ministry yesterday issued a warning advising people to stay indoors and avoid getting a heat stroke - a lifethreatening condition that claimed seven lives over the past two years.

Public Health Minister Jurin Laksanawisit said exposure to heat could result in abnormally high body temperature, sometimes exceeding 40 degrees Celsius, which increases the of dying by 17 to 70 per cent.

Youngsters, the elderly and people with chronic diseases could develop severe symptoms such as high body temperature, palpitations, asthma, confusion and heat exhaustion.

According to the Public Health Ministry's records, five people have become ill from heat stroke this year. Heat strokes killed four people and made 80 ill in 2008, while about 32 people were diagnosed with heat stroke in 2009. Last year, eight sol?diers were also admitted to hospital for heat stroke and three died.

Jurin has advised people to drink at least six to eight glasses of water every day and avoid strong sunlight.

According to the Meteorological Department, temperatures might hit between 35 and 41 degrees all this week nationwide.

Temperatures in the North are expected hit 3841 degrees Celsius, followed by the Central region going as high as 40 degrees Celsius. The East and South appear to be slightly cool?er, with 37 degrees Celsius being the highest.

The hottest region in the country yesterday was Mae Hong Son, where temperatures hit 41.6 degrees Celsius for the first time in 20 years. In addi?tion, 30 cows died from malnutrition because the drought had dried up the grass, their main source of nutrition.

The provincial governor has ordered the Department of Livestock Development to quickly solve this problem.

According to Smith Dharmasaroja, chairman of the National Disaster Warning Centre, so far this year, 15 people have already died from heat stroke, the highest ever in Thailand.

He added that the extremely hot temperatures and freak thunderstorms were the result of the ElNino phenomenon.

You always do that Capt. but you leave before it gets hot :happy1:

The 120 F heat index makes it like riding in a blast furnace.

The heat this year is unusual. Over 15 dead from heat stroke two of them soldiers. That was as of a couple days ago.
