I managed to get an early start today so I was determined to finish off where I turned around yesterday

It was a very cold morning so it was four t shirts and trousers under my riding gear with the windproof liners in too, that did the trick and I was not cold at all

I finally reach the village or maybe it was two of them close together after a long rough ride, I certainly made the right decision in turning around yesterday afternoon

An easy to remember village name at N17.30743 E098.65488

I wonder if this village is cut off in the rainy season

Here was where I really thought I was in the shit, the bike died on me as I was going uphill and I was wondering how many days before I was going to get back to Mae Sot.
It didnt want to start so I left it while I ate my lunch, I tried again, the motor spun freely but wouldnt run, finally it started and sounded as though it was flooded for a few seconds then it ran fine.
