    90 Countdown Begins..... 4th Year/4th Trip(Patong/Khao Lak/BKK or Pttaya)

    Hey Guys,
    90 days and counting til I head to LOS for my annual SE Asia trek. For those that read my TR last year, I hope to not be some of the same spots. But every year I seem to step on myself several times in the haze of booze, ladies and fun. I will be meeting Supersub again and we will reunite with Jay Jay for a few days before he leaves in January.

    I depart the USA at noon WEDS Jan 7th from ATL flying to Incheon via Korean Airlines and then to HKT at 2320pm on Thursday night. Although it is a grueling flight....it has become part of the ritual and part of the fun. I have already arranged trans from the airport via Manit the trusty driver I have used for the last 2 years. I assume I will arrive at my room around 100a-130a. A room in which Supersub will have already checked in to. I anticipate being on Bangla by 200a for a quick hello.


    My trip runs from Jan 7th through Jan 27th, so it should afford a decent amount of time to explore and enjoy various things. Tentatively I am scheduled to make Patong home for 2 weeks. I have a room booked for a few laid back nights in Khao Lak to explore Similians and Phang Nga. Really looking forward to that as I have never been. I also have a flight booked to BKK for 3 nights. I have a BKK room booked , but am unsure if I will detour to Pattaya with Supersub and another guy to take a stroll in Pattaya.


    Every trip seems to get better and I make more friends in LOS. I think this one will be very interesting as I have tried to tell my self that I will not take same girl. I think I have truly committed so much I am contemplating not talking a girl to Khao Lak.....but Supersub says that is just insane . So i guess we will see.


    Any of you guys are in LOS Jan 7th-27th? let me know and we can all get together for a drink. Every year I meet people from the forum and we have a great time.

    I fly the same Korean AL flight from San Francisco to Incheon then on to Phuket. It's a bitch. Valium and booze works wonders...

    Have fun brother.

    Ambien with a valium chaser makes the first leg very manageable. Second leg from Incheon to HKT may involve a few drinks .

    The fortunate thing is that Korean Airlines allows you to pick seating within class first come First serve. SO i sit as close to the front as possible, yet comfortably away from the seating for parents with infants. I like sitting close to the front to try and get through immigration/re-screening at the stop over.

    I've got a bit of a wait at swampy when I land. Get in at 0700 and my flight to hkt isn't till 1210. Could have gotten an earlier flight but wanted to leave some time incase I got delayed. Could be worse places to kill time I guess.

    yeah BKK airport has plenty to do. My first year i arrived via Singapore airlines at 700-800am in HKT. I was so excited to get there....I took a shower at Singapore airport so i could throw my **** in the room as fast as I could and go explore on my rental bike. ahhhhhh the first time.......and I arrived on NYE

    I've always used Thai for the Bangkok - Phuket trip and just figured if I missed the flight they would probably put me on the next one , so would have booked a 09:00ish flight , but I've never been delayed on the overnight flight into Swampy , so not had to put the theory into practice

    Oh don't worry, those three get up to plenty of mischief. It'll make for an entertaining January here.

    I was in Patong for new years last Dec-Jan. I loved it, but it was way too crowded.

    I'm flying to to Phuket next Friday. New years this time is an island party back home.
