The Route 108, 3005

Total Distance 166 km
Image
I turn onto the 3005 then after about 300 metres take a right to ride along a narrow paved surface to Huai Goo
Image

Image

Image
Nicely balanced and away she goes
Image

Image
In Huai Goo
Image
I ride through the village and on the way back take a left at N18.08.159 E098.07.841 onto a dirt track that the ESRI shows as going on southwards for a km or 2
Image
An irrigation channel runs along here
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
I was standing on the edge of a landslip taking this photo not being able to see what was underneath
Image
The view from the other side shows it to be a bit precarious back there
Image

Image
I am off the GPS now and no idea whatsoever where this track goes to, I can see some houses to my right up in the hills
Image

Image
The track now goes off in three directions
Image
I take the right
Image

Image
Not far and its a dead end
Image
The middle track goes further
Image

Image
Then it too stops at the river, I can no longer see those houses and now think it was probably near to Doi Liam south of and just past Mae Ho
Image

Image
Back in Huai Goo and the dirt track started from behind the water filters
Image
I ride back towards the 108 and at N18.08.249 E098.07.893 I take a right onto another dirt track that leads back across to the 3005 emerging onto asphalt at N18.08.163 E098.08.494.
A short ride south on the 3005 then a left onto a paved road that goes through a small village, the road turns to dirt at N18.07.715 E098.08.961
Image

Image

Image

Image
I have rode past where the ESRI showed it going too and back a bit there was another turning which I am hoping will link up with another track which shows up further on
Image

Image
I am in luck as this unshown track links up with the other one and will take me back to the 108
Image

Image

Image
The road suddenly turns to paved at N18.08.171 E098.09.768 and just past here I can look down on a village which I imagine is Pa Bong
Image

Image
A stop in the village for a snack, I take a right in the village to ride to the end of the paved road then turn round and ride on through towards the 108
Image

Image
It was a left onto the 108 then another left onto the 3005 followed by another left onto this unknown road to ride to Kong Koi
Image
I have not rode along here for about three years now and its still a crap surface as usual
Image

Image

Image
At Kong Koi its a right to ride to where I finished yesterday to do some more exploring
Image

Image
I take a left to ride around a village and explore some tracks that go out from here
Image

Image
The dirt starts at N18.02.265 E098.10.052
Image

Image
One thing I am noticing is the temperature change today, after 3pm its rather cool riding out here and riding back along the 108 it was rather chilly until about 10 km before Mae Sariang when I descended to a much lower altitude
Image

Image

Image

Image
Some of these show on the ESRI and some dont but they are all dead ends and just farm access roads
Image

Image
I ride back and around the village in the other direction then the final track of the day was dirt starting from N18.02.564 E098.10.061
Image

Image

Image
Just another access track
Image
On the way back to Kong Koi and another fire has been started
