JJR Race Track Udon Thani ???

I located an unused (recently) drag strip just north of the city by air. Took a while, but I was able to get there by truck. It looks like it has not been used for several years. Does anyone know the story behind this facility. Rather cool place to visit. It is about 2 or 3 km due east of Do Home, n...

Re: Playing Golf in Udon

Dear Pal52: I am glad that you enjoy this course. There were about 6 caddies who told me and a Thai lady we were playing with that I could not play in this shirt. There was no miscommunication. You are, in your opinion, the master of golf and etiquette for Udon and we all will bow down to your posit...

Re: Playing Golf in Udon

I used the driving range t the Nong Sam Rong Army course many times and wanted to play the course with two friends the other day. They would not allow me to be on the course with a collared, button down business shirt. I was told that I needed a golf/polo shirt. If the caddy allowed me to play, she ...

Re: RC RACING ON ROAD 1/10 EP CAR

The only real hobby and R/C store that I know of in Udon is Note Hobby on Sri Chom Cheun Road. He has a reasonable amount of cars, boats, helicopters, drones and planes.

Hope this helps

Where to Buy Good Pork Ribs for BBQ

After having BBQ'd some fine pork ribs in the USA this summer, I am looking for a source to buy good pork ribs in Udon. I looked at Makro and just as I have been told, what I saw was racks of ribs which have been striped of most of the meat. I want some baby back or St. Louis style ribs with lots of...

Golf for Relaxed Hacker

Thanks to all for the responses. We went to the Army base yesterday and used the driving range. It was fun. I agree with the suggestion about not playing this course for a while due to the amount of water. When guys talk about tips for the caddys, I have a question. Golfers pay for the caddy (200 to...

New Tires for Truck ???

With the recommendation and help of a British friend, I visited a tire shop in downtown Udon, a short distance west of Makro. We talked to the owner, a Thai man with lots of experience in the tire business. We talked about Michelin, Yokohama, Bridgestone and Goodyear tires. He felt that Michelin tir...

New Tires for Truck ???

Thank you all for the time taken to respond to my thread. One question that has come up that I do not know how to answer is that tires made in Thailand, be they Michelin or Yokohama or Bridgestone may be different than those made in other parts of the world. I don't know if this is true. Does anyone...

When she applied for a Tourist visa, she told them she wanted to visit for about a month. We then changed plans and decided to stay ...
