The Route 108, 4085, 1099

Total Distance 188 km
Image
I headed east along the 108 for about 45 km then took a right onto the less than perfectly surfaced 4085
Image

Image
Well burnt scenery and lots of haze today.
Before reaching Kong Koi there is a proper fuel station at N18.06.127 E098.12.970
Image
Out the other side of Kong Koi the road turns to dirt at N18.04.870 E098.11.806, I only ride a short way to finish mapping the track that I took yesterday but joined it further along
Image

Image
I ride back then onto Bo Sali, here I take a side track that turns to dirt at N18.06.335 E098.13.617
Image

Image
Its a bumpy and sometimes rocky surface
Image

Image

Image

Image
My one and only water crossing today
Image

Image

Image
Some concrete strips are being laid here
Image
Then its the track of fire but not much smoke thankfully
Image

Image
The dirt finishes at N18.07.762 E098.13.214 when I reach the 4085
Image
I only stay on the 4085 for a short time then I take a right onto dirt at N18.08.124 E098.13.357 and this track shows as taking me back to the 108.
I reach this unknown reservoir at N18.08.234 E098.13.918 and here I have to do a turnaround as theres no way through
Image
This is a recent construction by the look of it
Image
Virtually full
Image

Image
The ESRI shows this as the way back to the 108 but it is overgrown and blocked by bamboo ahead so time to turn around
Image
That pickup truck in the field is on the other side of the irrigation duct and I can see a track going out from across it but that can be explored from the other end another time.
I ride back to the 4085 the way I rode in and no more dirt today now
Image
A small village at the end of the paved surface from another turning of the 108
Image
Further along the 108 and about 3 km before the 1099 I take a right onto this pleasant unnumbered road
Image
Fuel from the hand pump at N18.07.065 E098.21.310
Image

Image
I ride on and reach the 1099 then its back to Mae Sariang
