    Hi gt-riders,

    Can anyone give me some real-world information on the security situation on Thailand-Malaysia border areas for overland travel? The Aus Government website currently says "reconsider any travel in this area" due to recent terrorist attacks. Mind you they had even higher "do not travel" warnings against Iran and Pakistan when we went through there and it was really no problem - but I guess you can be unlucky.

    Regards
    John

    OK Scot, this is probably off topic for this post, but our whole sordid story is on a bog on Horizons Unlimited website, link is

    www.horizonsunlimited.com/tstories/skillington

    but be warned, we are a little verbose and the stories started almost 1 year ago....

    thanks for the local info, any more updates would be appreciated..

    regards
