  1. Thanks for posting. Yea im not going delay but as you probably know things are bad here with little vaccine and current lockdown. Did you get Multi or single focus? Also please post your experience on traveling back. I have 2 tickets Nov and Dec but starting to worry i may end up cancelling.
  2. No disagreement from me. My son is an Engineer and needs 3 PE to sign off on project. I expected many more for a plane.The Max is a disgrace to Boeing.
  3. I do agree. I fly long haul and even if it goes tits up i want to be on a Boeing plane. Those pilots who flew into the seawall at SfO because the ILS system was down and they last time they hand flew a plane was a 152 were saved by Boeing engineering.
  4. On the ongoing saga what will kill Bill first. His crazy GO GO girl on her bike or the lack of the vaccine. I do have an update perhaps helpful. As to the girl, we were behind a Motorcycle Taxi who stopped at the intersection. Now these guys generally know what they are doing so you would think its a good idea to wait and see what he sees. Nope she drives around him and off into the fray. OT i am registered on several sites but seems October with no real plan. I now have a confirmed Appt. at St Louis Hospital with a written slip allowing me to travel. July30. The AZ. I understand there ar
  5. As an update my friend took a copy of my Passport and Bumrungrad ID card and met with an Admin who looked at my records and am in to get the Pfizer on arrival next week. Probably more likely i can swim to Bangkok but hope springs.
  6. Jacko as expected BS. I was offered the Moderna in Oct. Not helpful. He will be at the hospital today 0830 to try for the Astra vaccine this month. I will report back his results today. As i have posted i dont care what vaccine i get as even the Chinese crap will keep you out of the ICU. I am an old dude with a lifelong career in Trauma/ Er Nursing i accept my mortality. It is my choice to drink and ride on my unemployed Go Go girls bike who despite being Thai does not seem to accept we drive on the left side. And dont be behind her because thats on you pal. But these risks are my choices.
  7. As expected the Moderna is not next week , October. My friend will be there at 0900 in the morning so maybe Astra. If i could take the Kittens girls back to Phoenix i would be on tonights flight.
  8. Registered at Samitivej also . A friend, Visa agent ,met with an administrator at an international hospital and they called me . Possibly the Moderna next week . We will see.
  9. Very happy to hear this. I of course follow this thread. My eyesight is crap and i pay 20K-30 K for glasses and have 5 pairs. Im done and when this virus is reduced im getting IOL's at Bumrungrad. I am responding because for the new fellows a good counsel was to have a high limit CC for medical expense. I have excellent insurance but if the hospital doesnt want to deal with it i can go forward. '
  10. Yes, picks me up on her motorbike from Lewiinski's, off to the hotel and she drives me back. Only problem is that while outstanding sexually she is a terrible driver. When I'm on the bike im humming the American Pie song “This will be the day that i die” Not a bad way to go i guess.
  11. Very True. ,the US embassy has effectively said FO. Bumrungrad has the vaccine on their website with detailed info on what to do. Called them and not true, maybe September. I thought screw this ineptness and told my son ill be back next week to Phoenix, book an appointment for me. He said no problem the vaccine is free and everywhere . We can go shooting in the desert and you fly back less than a week. I guess i have not paid attention as the reentry here is very difficult. I'm pissed but better to be here with the unemployed go go girl i'm meeting in the morning than back in Annapolis
  12. I was talking with a friend last night in Bangkok and we are all feeling a bit like hermits. No one is even doing the coffee cup darkened bar thing. American Tavern is closed for the first time. My post was in sarcastic jest and realizing we farang are on our own dependent on what the private hospitals can provide. It was sad to me that Thailand did an excellent job at general and targeted lockdowns and limiting large gatherings. Then complete failure on the vaccine side from the start refusing to lock in preorders , delaying vaccine approval, the silly vacation quarantine, bubble and sandbox
  13. 1) How Can I Register for a Vaccination? a) Mor Phrom V.2 app. At this time it appears it’s only valid for Only Thai people or Expats with a Thai ID number shown on their Pink Card i) Launch the Line App ii) Click the Home button on the bottom line iii) Click the Person+ icon in the upper right iv) Click the QR code icon on the top line v) Scan this barcode: vi) Click the Person+Add icon vii) Go back to Home viii) Click on the Mor Prom line: ix) Scroll down to find: x) Click the green button xi) Scroll down a long, long way and click green button to approve the
  14. Well appreciated nkped ,this is the first concrete information we have seen for farang. I spoke with Gavin last year concerning an administrative problem at PHS and he gave a strong response. I have a contact at Bumrungrad and will email her tomorrow. If she has anything to add i will tack on to this thread.
  15. Thanks nkped. I had done this in the past but with the change in US banking laws i was unable to comply with 65000/month method. Like you i do not want 800k in a Thai bank and would rather write off 600k for a Thai Elite. Now with DD of SSI and OPM pension i will have the 65000 /month on my next extension. Unfortunately with an OA i cannot prove health insurance despite having more than adequate BCBS. Very happy with my current agent who also does my 90 day at no cost. But if the time comes to learn how to change to an O your outline would be helpful.
