Well its been a while since I have checked in. sum up the last few months of activity would be short overniters. No real off road stuff but I did take a diversion thru the mud to tuk cha in kampong cham provice to check out some old temples. ref your gecko map and the small band that connects the six and seven just east of skun. this road is paved between both highways. turning east at the canal took us down the mud path. Most of the recent riding has been geared to the wet season. the routes to siem reap, battambang, kampong cham, neak luong north thru prey veng, kampong som, kampot route three and the south route thru kampong trach are all paved. took a few trips to kampot and kep just to escape the city and eat crab on the coast. fortunately the weather was with me 90 percent of the time and the raingear remained in the suitcase. made an attempt to take the 51 to kampot last week. picked up the dirt road off the 4 (to kampong som) and went south. we made it approximatey 1/3rd of the way before we crossed a big puddle only to be dissappointed by a larger uncrossable river. this can be done during dryer times but this season has brought a substantial amount of water. we went north until we could divert over to the 3 south then took the paved diversion to kampong trach and kep. less traveled and far fewer vehicles. took the next day and went up Bokor mountain. the road is still in relatively decent condition (for 250 cc dirt bikes) with big rocks and pitted asphalt. took about an hour up the mountain with passenger and about the same coming down. Lucked out with patchy clouds and blue skies and only a little rain once back at sea level on the way back to kampot. Riding season should be pretty good this year with a little less sand and a little more greenery.
