The route 1080, 4019

Total distance 139 km

Dirt starts at N18.92640 E100.79773

A lot of rubber trees out this way

Some nice twisty fun dirt on a good surface

I am riding on from where I left off yesterday and now heading west towards the 1080 about 30 km north of Nan

I reach the asphalt surface of the 1080 at N19.01929 E100.78843 and turn right onto it followed quickly by a right onto an unnumbered asphalt road

Dirt starts again at N18.99436 E100.83123 as I take a right to ride south to link up where I was earlier on today

I dont bother riding over as its a dead end, a few of them today but some good linkups too and slowly filling the Nan map in a bit more

Now a ride through the woods for a change

Does anyone know what this says?

I ride back to the paved surface at N18.99436 E100.83123 and ride on eastwards reaching Ban Huai Pong at N18.99055 E100.84603.
I am asked where I am going to and I reply Santisuk to which I am told no way through, I try anyway

Dirt starts again at N18.99060 E100.84859

Lots of tracks spotted on the ridgeline where I ride today at times

I dont bother trying to reach Santisuk today as I have plenty to keep me occupied out here again tomorrow and I will ride to Santisuk by road then try riding back to the waypoint I left here unless theres no way over the water crossings I am expecting to encounter

Now to enjoy the ride back

Chicken and cashew nuts with an extra portion of rice for 95 Baht at Tony’s Place
