  1. Not sure why the webpage is still open. Dale might still be organizing some golf trips using it.
  2. Golf Club was my watering hole and I was friends with the owners and Steve. After Steve died I believe there was only one owner left with 100% ownership. The remaining owner was not interested in running the place and sold. I wasn't there so second hand info. New owners apparently kept most of the staff prior to covid. I have no idea now how the place is doing now. I will miss the camaraderie of the place.
  3. We should also remember - the airframe is not the deciding factor regarding seat comfort. Airlines kit out the interior of jets as they wish, and they could put great seats into the 787 if they wished. The thing to compare is: Airframe - smoothness of flight. Air quality. Noise levels. 380 is awesome and rumor is so is the 787. Airline seat - width, pitch, access to the aisle. etc. For me first it's the seating. I want direct aisle access and no one crawling over me and a lie flat seat. After that the airframe comes into it.
  4. Nice. Love the 380. I am flying QATAR US-Doha-BKK in January and pretty sure I'm on A330. Also a fine jet and in business with a pod so I don't have to wear a mask the whole way. but a 380 would be better. Flew them twice and smooth and quiet. Love them.
  5. I did point out the convenience of them. And it isn't as if I tell anyone else how to live their life. The question was asked and I am sharing my opinion which is they are very dangerous to ride in Pattaya. I hope you would agree a minor accident on a motorbike is much more likely to get you injured than riding in the back of a baht bus despite being a passive form of travel?
  6. IMO if you live in a location not served well by baht bus loops or mototaxis it's hard not to own one. Like sailingbill living on Wongamot beach. Tough to get there without. And I guess if I lived there full time I'd have one. But I am really set against it unless you absolutely need one. There is no question in my mind every person posting here with a bike has either been down or will go down. Usually it's not too bad and they live. The question you have to ask yourself it "am I willing to accept the pain that will come when some idiot on a car swerves into me and I get a broken leg an
  7. He was famous. Dead now. I guess his style isn't for everyone.
  8. Sorry. I got the mistaken impression you were a newby to Thailand. Sounds like you already got that part figured out. ? I was so lucky with the maid I had. I hired her to clean my condo on a demand basis. She asked what the building charged me to clean and I told her 400 baht. So she wanted 400 baht to clean a 1br condo with 3 sliding glass doors and small balconies etc. Man what a bargain, She would come when I called and clean until I threw her out. I mean the windows, Jacuzzi, take all the dishes out of the cabinets wash them, wipe down the cabinet interiors and replace th
  9. Welcome aboard Brad. Finding a maid will be easy. My only advice is - if you like the job she is doing as a maid KEEP her as a maid. It is a lot easier to find companionship in Pattaya than it is to find a good maid. ?
  10. I have no brand loyalty but I admit which jet they fly matters to me. But it only applies to international travel for me since I rarely fly domestically any longer. I kind of have a preference for what jet I fly and it all other things are equal will take a 380 over anything else. Smoother, quieter and better air than the 777 or 350 in my experience. I am also curious about the 787 which I have not flown. It too is supposed to be quieter and smoother and better air. But so far all the 787s on routes I might fly have opted for poor seating in the biz class section. JAL seats appear
  11. Yeah I got it. Peoples attitudes suck. I just expanded on your post my opinion of masks. I don't know what the rules are. I haven't flown since Covid started. I probably will take a short hop in December to visit family in Utah on a small carrier called Allegient from really small airports. But I assume the rules are the same so I'll have a mask if that's the rules. Just looked it up. Yup. It's the rules. Lucky me short flight like an hour.
  12. I wouldn't waste my breath trying to get someone to follow rules. People like that are LOOKING for confrontation. And to be honest I don't believe masks do much to make us safer. If they were real medical quality masks maybe but the simple things we wear are about as useful as the plastic helmets some Thais wear to meet helmet requirements on a motorcycle. And are the masks required these days on long haul international? I dunno if I could sleep with one on from LAX to TPE or wherever. Might muffle my snoring. LOL
  13. Really sad. Much of the world clamors for more vaccine as they have shortages. And here in the USA we have organized resistance to it. In fairness, I am no proponent of the ham handed way they are shoving it down the throats of those opposed to them. They have created a resistance movement to vaccines with the overbearing message they are sending. Weird part is many of them are/were big Trump fans and he aided in getting the vaccines developed. I wonder if they would be resistant if Trump was still president? Politics are getting really suck here.
  14. I bet you think that isn't a licensed shirt. LOL
