A track that wasn’t on the map leads me back to the locked gate at Pha Daeng, two years ago on the KLX 250 I saw this from inside the mine but as I was being chased after by security I was riding as fast as I could to avoid being escorted out and didn’t have time to check this track out

The refuse burning electricity station is also nearly complete, one of the office guys came out to talk with me about it and said in about one month it will be finished.
They have a problem with a dust filter at the moment and he advised me not to stay there too long outside, it was settling on my skin and getting in my eyes, not very pleasant
