1-11-15 A Short Trip Due To A Dead GPS

Good scenery very soon off of the 118 Offroad is easy to find close to Chiang Mai Just past here and the GPS died, it wont power from the cable and once the batteries died it conked out. Buying new batteries from a shop was pointless as it wont fire up from fresh batteries but needs a jump start from a computer or other power source, bloody annoying A Khao soi from Kanjana, very tasty too 75 Baht
