The route 1090, 4017, 4016

Total distance 136 km

A newish lake along the 1090

A lot of scouts on a camping trip here today

This very friendly man is from Uganda and an English teacher at the local school, like me he was feeling the cold this morning.
He was telling me it was very foggy and felt freezing cold at the campsite this morning

Riding on and dirt starts at N16.49342 E098.81544

Flat gentle stuff today after the mountains of the last few days

Dirt finishes as I reach the 4017

Dirt starts again at N16.56960 E098.81837

I saw 1003 metres on the GPS

Certainly some good views from up here

If I can make my way to there it will be a little loop rather then having to ride back

Lots of potatoes growing here

I reach the spot where I rode to last year then see the track goes down and on into the distance so I follow it

After climbing and going through some bamboos the track turns to single track

Its the end of the line and time to ride back reaching asphalt at the Pa Wai waterfall

Dirt starts again at N16.51139 E098.72544 until I reach the 4016

More dirt from N16.53510 E098.73178 until I reach the 1090

Walking around the market in Mae Sot and plenty of bags of frogs for sale

That top frog doesnt seem to want to accept his fate and looks like its trying to escape

Moo hunglay and two portions of rice for 120 Baht

  1. Yes Mike I havent seen that many this trip, saying that I will probably get bitten by one now

  2. There seems to be a worrying lack of snakes in these reports, perhaps global warming is more fiendish than we thought? Keep up the good work Herr Capitan.
