  1. Son is a Civil Engineer visiting in Nov. Told him we may talk a walk down there for his opinion. "No Dad we will not".
  2. You are right. I dont understand the disagreements. Do what the hell you want. I cannot fly economy on the 24 hour trip from D.C. I beg off the fine dining tablecloth and the jellied whatever eel and just ask them to leave the bottle of Sake. You may consider insane, I sleep quite well. We both do fine.
  3. Thanks, i'm going back to the States for 3 weeks in July. Hate to blow 20k for useless insurance valid for 4 months but hopefully my last trip back.
  4. Before i had a live in GF Thai friendly was my mainstay. 1,200-2000 all in. At one time i had 6 regulars. Too many. It takes a bit of work and screening. Was talking with a great lady talking about what we wanted. She replied "a relationship".I started to end the conversation then she wrote "or a customer". She always stayed LT. We were together for almost 2 years before she headed back to the farm.
  5. Rhodie, i assume this was a tourist conversion, not O-A?
  6. Prices in Thailand have always amazed me. I have been coming here for 15 years. I paid the same now for Areca as i did years ago. The pizza hotel on Diana is nice and only 500 baht. My rent has never gone up. I went to a girl's room on Soi 6 above a coffee shop. She pays 2k a month, has air con, shower and cleaning. Baht buses still 10. Taxis are much cheaper though that will change when the tourist return. Bar fines have increased and i dont like to cheat the owners but when they get to 1,000 baht line numbers are often exchanged. Usually the girls suggestion. I wouldn't argue tallguy's p
  7. Just keeping the riff raff out Jacko. The beach security at Centara wouldn't let me in even though i live close by and told them i have lunch at Oasis. Next time your in the neighborhood ill pick you up in my kayak near Dolphin and have lunch at Surf &Turf.
  8. Beautiful tree. The Condo complex where i live has several Rai attended to by Noongnuch Gardens and another company. They remove the dead limbs with long shears. Im sure they can advise the spray though i have not seen them using it. Its Saturday so they are not on site but will have my GF ask them. Broughton , any pictures of the rest of your land?
  9. I don't think so. Agents are legal as to current rules. But rules are not laws and can change overnight. The Visa run guys years ago were fine until Immigration said no more. The only ones who were red stamped were the ones who continued doing runs from Swampy. Even they got one chance to do the paper work themselves, use an agent or get a Thai Elite card. But TIT so have plan B. My plan "e" is to abscond to my GF's farm in Issan and screw my American passport and Th. immigration. Which reminds me i need to put a western toilet up there.
  10. Use an agent. My close friend in Bangkok is an Agent and i can refer you if you like. I don't use him because he is too expensive. Does a lot of hand holding with younger clients. I was at lunch sitting off to the side while he met with a customer. The client asked if he would have access to the 800k loan. I nearly yelled of course not. But if Thailand is your home have a plan B . I remember when there was a Visa run Van and Kiosk on every Soi. Gone overnight. Force replied while i was typing this. Manareet is tops.
  11. Tom, not a bad idea to look up also. had a snake fall out of a tree at the Avenue.
  12. Leaving Villa Market very careful at crossing the side walk to 2cd road. Once at the road all clear left/right. Almost took out an old guy slowly riding his bicycle on the roadway the wrong way. Didnt matter right or wrong way he blended in with the parked cars. I was to focused on the left after checking motorcycles and pedestrians.
  13. Saw a post recently. Guy is making a legal left turn, fully stopped, turn signal on. Kid on a motorbike not looking clips him coming out of the side Soi. Everyone is ok. Insurance agent arrives and pays the kid. The Farang protests why did you pay it was not my fault? It is explained that you have a car, you are a farang and if you were not making a turn the accident would not have happened. For all our criticism of driving here i find the Thais are to polite. They yield when they have the right of way. In America this is a rear ender. I travel the Dolphin roundabout frequently and as Forc
  14. i am my worst enemy as im lazy. Spent 20k last night in Bangkok and didnt get laid. But this accounting does piss me off. I will talk with BB tomorrow since i have the monthly transfer. if no resolution im moving to Schwab. i made my rent for a year investing in Conoco Philips with Schwab. I am not a financial genius. Pussy and Rum takes most of it.
  15. Agree here. If i have been out on a tear the night before i'll take a bolt to Villa even if sober in the AM. They wait, drive me back to the condo and help with the bags.
  16. Nice to see pilots actually flying in the age of auto everything. My instructor had me landing in a very small windy 30% Iced strip. I did ask why as it seemed not that safe and i would never fly in these conditions, i was not a professional pilot. "If your family is in the back, now you will know how". Outstanding Swedish Instructor.
  17. Been using Nams for years now. I was very critical of new Taxi services as they start great then fail with success . Nams had been the only outlier. I have been using Miss Taen from Nams for 2 years. Comfortable Suv. There is no place she cant find
  18. Thanks, i may send my PBG girl over. ill stop in tomorrow and ask the manager. Btw no luck on Soi Honey today and yesterday though i did get a nice haircut. Jacko you are the expert on MP. Where am i missing? The GC to mechanical for me.
  19. Seems odd. i know girls who would be happy with 13k + tip. They still are taking orders on Food Panda.
  20. While i rarely worry on the small stuff ,this difference is = to 4 short times. I have friends paying 10k-12k in rent so a difference of 8842 in 1 month is far beyond small stuff. Another inconvenience is the deposit must go to a Non Atm account and you cannot transfer it online. So i will be at BB February 3rd to transfer 3 months of deposits to my atm account.. I will redo the math then on the Feb. deposit. If i didn't screw the math up Ill ask for an accounting of rates and fees. JONPAT i'm weary with the math at the moment but maybe you can take a look. SS/OPM sent $4421. Between Jan
  21. Not exact math but for the US guys thinking about Direct Deposit of SS and pension.I recently got a disappointing 31/usd,to BB. Transferwise 33/usd with TT coming in slightly higher but poor comparison since i'm not exchanging 100 usd bills.
  22. Has been talk of this lack of hand flying skills on Pilots forums for years. Some airlines even forbid hand flying. "Children of the Magenta line."
  23. a lot of activity, A lot of activity, im happy but hate those fume belching tour buses are on the roads again. I dont understand the guys that want to bargain down at this point but their money. To me easy, a Sweet Soi 6 , MP girl or a lovely at Kittens or Classroom for 1-2k all in. Maybe a phone number for later. Even a Boomerang stunner or Kinks girl 2k. ST. Ive been here awhile but not so long as i forget the price and attitude that awaits me in Vegas. Thanks for that, i hope no regrets but im bringing the girl back from the farm.
  24. Really hopeful and good news. Have you heard from Pete? I don't know him. A waitress i keep in touch with had to leave Pattaya, no money. She has a friend here and likes her job at the BG. Likes the beach. Now working on a farm up north with little money and hard work. I have never sponsored before but she only needs 3.5k for the room and 3k living expenses. I'm thinking to do it with the understanding when BG opens the support ends. Edit To give an idea of what the non gogo girls have as options. My GF's bar called to offer her job back. Mainly cleaning, easy waitress job. She wants
  25. Force i was surprised at this also, just there for the extension. I heard Kittens was open and i have 2 girls there. The launch sequence was initiated so i told the guy i'll come back next week,no time today. He said 1000 baht more they will do the bank . Next year i will do it myself but that day i was on a mission.
