Re: Best places within 5 hours of Udon

Wat Phrathat Pha Sorn Kaew is about 4/5 hours away and the drive there is through scenic country. Blue Sky Resort nearby is nice I second this suggestion. Phu Tub Berk is in the same vicinity and is also a very interesting and scenic excursion. Blue Sky Resort can also make suggestions for local ea...

Re: DeWax ear drops

If you go the pharmacy across from the military hospital, there are several located there. If one doesn't have it you can try another just few meters away. However, if it's more convenient for you to look elsewhere I would think that most all of the pharmacies in town carry the product.

Re: DeWax ear drops

I'd think that most any pharmacy would carry this. I got some at the pharmacy directly across the road (Thanon Tahan) from the military hospital.

No I haven't tried them yet. Hope you find them suitable. Doubtful that you will find any that match Nordic blueberries though. Canadian berries may come close. I've eaten really delicious fresh wild blueberries while in Canada.

Re: Reporting from Across the Pacific

Certainly hope the rest of your travels go well parrot. The wife and I were just a couple of weeks or so behind you in our travel plans to the States and as it has turned out it's best that we had to cancel when we did.

It involves a fairly long walk but is well worth the effort. Here is a link that explains it. Further down the road f...

The Chiefs beat Bud Grant and the Vikings in Super bowl IV. The only Super Bowl win for the Chiefs until last year. Grant was the quintessential football coach and he's still around at age 93.

Re: Fishing net

Thais flat know how to catch fish. They are some of the best I've ever fished with. They fish both for fun and for food. I'd think that if you check around you could find someone who could put on to a fish trap. Thais usually make their own and they definitely know how to use them. Might be worth lo...
