Sadly Con had to go back to Chiang Mai early this morning so today it was just the three of us, we took the 1080 to past Pua then took a right onto the 4001
Image
We took a left onto a dirt track at N19 16.311 E101 00.839 to ride to the one we were exploring yesterday until we lost it
Image

Image

Image
Another pleasant easy going one that went quite steeply downhill for a while
Image

Image

Image

Image
We reach the track that we couldnt get on yesterday and turn left onto it to ride to where we lost it
Image
Here is where we should be crossing to stay on the track but its a no go
Image

Image

Image
Phil goes off scouting for a way round and decides we can ride along the river bed to cross over
Image

Image

Image

Image
We manage to get across then its off up this rutted overgrown track
Image

Image

Image

Image
After riding up a narrow track this gate blocks our progress
Image
I climb over to view whats on the other side and its another gate
Image
Plus this is the track
Image

Image
Even without the gates blocking our way this is what the track becomes.
We were told yesterday that it didnt go through and that appears to be correct
Image

Image
Its time to turn around and ride on the last section of this track which apart from possibly about 2 km was explored by us
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
Up until this point the track was quite easy
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
Then it got a lot harder and here Heinz needs a helping push to get going again
Image
Deep ruts and a rocky terrain make for slow going and the fan on the KLX is working overtime until we reach the 4001
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
At the 4001 we stop in a village for much needed refreshments and a cooling break
Image

Image

Image

Image
Now to enjoy the rest of the 4001 for only my second time
Image
Looking back at the village where we stopped.
Another fun days riding and exploring
