    Greetings

    I am a new member currently living near Phimai to far from Korat. Usually I live in Phuket but just built a house here and doing the finishing. Things like gutters so the place doesn't float away. Soil erosion is a bit of a problem I can't wait to get the retainer wall built and do some landscaping, to keep the dust down. Well and the mud. The soil is mostly clay so the mud really sticks to shoes, my car is always a mess. If anyone is around here I'd like to contact and maybe meet for a beverage. I do feel a bit of a desire to speak English some times.
    Have a good weekend

    WTTB ChokDee. Phimai's a bit north of NR/Korat if I'm not mistaken. Or how far south of KK are you?

    BTW, Thai guttering needs double their normal brackets or you'll be replacing it all in ~5 years.
    Cheers, Rob.

    Thank you all for welcome

    Thank you. I first arrived in 1967 left in 75 and came back and forth since then. Spent about 10 years in the Caribe with no trips to Thailand. Ce for a month or so
    I'm early 80s. Then back
    And forth most years. Did a trip down the Mekong
    Starting about. 10 years ago. I took 3 years to do it
    Worked I'm Saigon 5 years ago , we had offices in Saigon , Laos
    and Cambodia. I went to all offices about every 6 weeks
    It was a good time lots of work but fun. I have spent a lot of time in Lao. I really like Lao but not so fond of the government and the tyrannical laws. Lao jail is not fun but that is a long story.

    I dont know if theres any BMs living near Pi Mai but .... funnily enough when hes living in Phuket 'chok' lives very near me , and if the old gf and me had stayed an item I would have been a regular visitor to Nong Hong Song , not too far from where hes staying now.
    Small world...
    His tg even looks a little like my one from KorRART did , same skin tone and body type... We went over to the Khmen ruins there at Pi Mai for a walk a bit.
