Road east from Umphang Kii village

  1. I was going east trying to see how far that road goes after it ends on the map.

    Some nice river crossings, around knee deep and full of rocks. I guess in the rainy seasons it gets pretty deep.

    Seemed like a trail but soon disappeared.

    What looks like a hiking trail continues on the side of the hill, looks like making a U-turn would be a problem, and as the sun was getting down I decided not to check it out and to come back. I think it's quite likely that the trail leads down to the river again, crosses it, and continues on the other side (as evidenced by the view of the other side I got when I got up a hill).

    A trail is visible on the hill on the other side of the river. I think the hiking trail crosses the river and continues there.

    Going back on a doubletrack around Umphang, I found this big open garbage dump. Pretty ugly but a lot of friendly doggies.

  6. Do you put your tracks on OpenStreet maps?

    So far I have been using the ESRI map for Thailand.. (No other map except GTR Paper maps).

    Looks like lots of trails on OpenStreet Maps..
    Also thousands of people contributing and updating..

    Will update my GPS tracks from our Sangkhaburi ride on OSM in the coming week or so.

    Cheers

  7. Never thought about it... I guess I should. I'm contributing my tracks to the other forum's map which I use. But maybe if OSM got something on top of that another map won't hurt.
