The route 1168

Total distance 125 km

Tony’s Place reopened this morning and I was their first customer at the new place

Gai phad kapow 35 Baht

Out along the 1168 and I ride into Ban Huai Kham at N18.78697 E100.91467

Beyond the village dirt starts at N18.78603 E100.91844

Thats far enough as it seems to be only farm access tracks out here

Further along the 1168 at my next turning these are hard at work

I turn onto what I expected to be a dirt track as it was rough for a few metres before turning to concrete then into this good surface

The surface turns to dirt from N18.82393 E100.92677 until N18.83226 E100.92374

I ride through a village at N18.85383 E100.92379

Another dirt section from N18.85553 E100.92379 until N18.89813 E100.93747

Hot dry and dusty out here now

A few of these co-ordinate signs along this track

No track showing on the GPS now but its heading towards Santisuk

I ride to the 1225, turn around then ride back exploring a few other turns, I dont try them all but those I do are just access tracks

Back at the 1168 I ride out a bit further before taking a dirt track at N18.79409 E100.95756

Five of these narrow crossings along this track

Pretty much the end of the road, a pity as I was hoping it would join up with the track I was on earlier

Now to ride back to the 1168 and Home

Tony’s Place for tonights food at the new location of N18.77855 E100.77013 very close to the Nan Guest House
