    Greetings from Pong Nam Ron

    G'day folks

    Refugee from Thai Visa here. Tired of all the trolls, digital nomads and poor English teachers there. Not banned and may continue to post on one or two of the sub-forums. Just looking for a new home of like minded people, got nothing against teachers btw.

    Living on a 20 acre orchard for the last 6 years. Pretty remote and close to Cambodia. We grow Lamyai, known as longan in Australia. Had some good years with it and some not so good.

    Retired from working for the Australian Defence Force (not uniformed) and shacked up with the missus here. Ups and downs aplenty really, the story of family and married life eh.

    Been through a fair few hoops here in my time so may be able to add a bit to the discussion and a laugh or two would be good. The handle is a bit of a take on the village head man's title, sometimes with the 9 houses on this orchard it feels like a village in it's own right and someone, in this case the farang, has to be the top of the pile.

    WTTB Pooyai. You'll fit in ok here, just send those lamyai donations to Surin and Chiangmai in brown paper bags monthly please
    Cheers, Rob.

    Welcome to your new home Pooyai. This is a pretty chilled place indeed.

    You sound like you're living the dream mate. Exactly the kind of place I'd love to settle down. The remoter the better.

    Just to give you a rundown of the forum... as you post more, more levels open, so you'll soon get to a more private section, away from the prying eyes of Google's spiders. When that section opens up to you, take some time to tell us your background story if you can. Would love to hear how you ended up there, and maybe see some pics of the orchard.

    But for now, welcome and happy posting.
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    Thai Geezer, birthplace of the angry farang rant?

    It wasn't too bad seven or eight years ago but now ... well, lets just say my post count there has already dropped to an average just north of zero.

    Pity really as there are a good number of guys like yourself there with a lot to offer.

    Mai bpen lai. WTTB (You are safe now ...555)

    Enjoy...

    (Should I point out the mistakes in all your posts for a while just so the change is not too dramatic?)

    Welcome to the board.
    Just to get your post count up, answer each post separately till you get to the next level.

    What part of Aussie where you from?

    looking forward to hearing all your stories and experiences.

    With 9 houses that's almost a Muang compared to the 6 where my missus came from.
    As recommended - do the individual reply thing.
    Have fun but you haven't completely escaped the peed ants 555! (as in Thai "Ha Ha Ha")

    Hi Rivo

    That would be Chantaburi, for anything more than a 7. Its about 100ks. I do go to the "talaat nut" weekly market in Soi Dao more often than not. It's OK for Thai supplies. That's 25ks. The closest 7, 22ks.

    Thanks, you can just be a minder, that would be fine. There are some nice guys there on TV, but there's a little bit of a Mafia running the show, it's time to make a change. 555
