The route 107
Total distance 77 km
We have had rain here everyday since thursday evening and each night it is getting heavier and lasting longer, lots more water in the streams/rivers now
Its dry again this morning as is the norm and the paved surfaces are all dry
Its looking like a nice day
Everywhere is soaked from the rains
I was sliding around a lot today and it was slow going even though I was riding on flat surfaces, sod trying to climb steep hills on that slippery red shit
Maybe I was a bit premature in saying it looks like its going to be a nice day
Taking cover from a torrential downpour
Heres where the GPS gave up
I was taking cover from rain when it just beeped and turned itself off, I turned it on again but the screen will only show the amount of satellites that are tracking me.
No buttons work and the only way to turn it off is to disconnect the external power supply and remove the batteries, once either power supply is attached it automatically turns itself on again.
I wait here for probably 30+ minutes then just ride home in it
My dinner being cooked, today is eight days here and no Western food at all
This was sweet and delicious pork with onions and garlic, this plus two portions of rice for 80 Baht and I was stuffed as there was a lot of pork there
