I stop along the 4007 at N16.23.632 E098.47.288 and here fuel is available at a hand pump, theres another one not far away at N16.23.686 E098.47.707

Now off to the Padee waterfall, the road turns to dirt at N16.25.358 E098.49.681 and I ride down a single track to it

The waterfall is signposted but access to see it is pretty bad, I climb down to the stream below and there seems to be a few all running in together but viewing most of the waterfall is very difficult

The GPS is showing I am at the border so possibly the water is the boundary, not that there is anyone here to worry about it

Now to ride back through the village

Another chap with a false leg

Image
Riding through another village and just past here at N16.22.965 E098.44.528 is a fuel station
Image
Theres a few villages out here and most of them seem to have the same surfaced grid pattern running through them
Image
I finally get to do some unpaved today starting at N16.23.559 E098.44.320
Image

Image
The surface returns to paved at N16.23.944 E098.43.627.
One more day out in this area should wrap up the mapping of the paved surface but it will have to wait as I am off to Umphang tomorrow as that place is a weekday attraction and usually quiet but complete bedlam at weekends or Thai holidays
Image
Another lovely pizza at Casa Mia for 130 Baht
Image
Followed by banoffee pie and cream for 35 Baht
