An earlyish start and its the 101 for 100 km then a right onto the 103 which takes me to hwy 1 where I turn left and ride for 1 or 2 km then a right onto the 1005.
I am happy to be off the boring 103 and now stop for a couple of photos

I stop in Ngao for refreshments then its the 1154 and along here the Yom river has a good fast flow

Sometimes the 1154 is covered in loose gravel, today there was none of this but lots of teak leaves instead, not that they presented any problem

  1.   Hello Colin,
                             Yes that was me who made the tracks there,a nice track is parallel to the railroad and then crossing the border between Lampang and Phrae. It s all on Auke s map.

                             When you ever in Lampang I hope you can visit me my phone number is 
    054 230 208 (call in the evening)

                        Regards Theo   tet_lampang@hotmail.com 

  2. Hello Theo

    Thanks for the info, I remember saying to Auke about there being tracks east of Lampang out in the wilds past the Mae Mo lignite mine and him saying someone had mapped them, I guess that was you.
    I called it the blue lake because thats what it was called in the post on rideasia about it but now I know better

    Regards

    Colin

  3.                                               Hello Colin,
    Well you dont know me but I am a friend with Auke, I also make tracks for him.  I made the track to lake Lompukiew in fact I made all the tracks around Lampang. I hope you enjoyed the trip,well I did.

    But it is not Bleu Lake but Green lake (kieuw=green) and in this neigbourhood is a lot to see waterfalls,caves,
    dams, mountain villages (KAREN) etc some mountains are 1000+ meter high and I managed to go there on a simple scooter with 3 gps devices on the handlebar.

                                                                 Regarts Theo….
