This track that I mapped three years ago had been planted over this year but we both made it to the top

This concrete bridge was new to here one year ago replacing a narrow old wooden one and I was looking for the tide mark to see how far the river rises in the wet season

We realised that the bridge is completely submerged during the wet season and you can see the rubbish in the surrounding trees showing the true height, I reckon it was at least 6 metres higher than todays level

Further upstream and I wonder if this bridge survived or has been replaced, last year was the first time that I have ever seen it here

We had to turn around on this track as part of it had been washed out

Too narrow to pass and we had to get off the track until they had passed

  2. Hi Colin, This is Martin. I rode with you for a couple of days 13/14.1.15 round Nan. Remember?. I’m coming back to Thailand but !st I’m going to Vietnam with my daughter till about the New Year then back to Thailand to pick up my bike and go to Cambodia. Are you going to be around till Feb this year? If you are and it;s OK with you I’d like to come up and ride around again. Maybe a week or so this time. I’ve got a few adjustments I want to make on the bike but last year it did me well, about 10,00km without a problem. Have you got the same bike? Anyway let me know please one way or the other.
    Regards Martin
