My query is, if modern vehicles are so terrific, why do they get replaced more and more on a regular basis?
Do they need a new set of tyres or the oil change done?
Average age in 2019 was 11.8 years, up 4% from 5 years previous.

Re: Foreigners Driving Poorly

Car/truck drivers aren't so bad. But elderly, inexperienced, helmetless, flip-flop-wearing foreigners trying their hand at riding a motorcycle/scooter......and to top it off, thinking that driving like the natives is the best thing to do......that's bad. See it everyday in Udon.

Chinese New Year

Tomorrow marks the beginning of Chinese New Year....year of the rat. Today I strolled along Makkaeng Rd, across from the old fresh market. There are several stores that sell a wide variety of essentials for the celebration. If anyone notices an uptick in the PM2.5 levels over the next few days it'll...

Coming to a neighborhood near you, pending final approval: Hospitals in Kumpawaphi, Sakaew, Chiangpen, Bandung, Nongwahsaw, among others in Udon province will be allowed to grow a limited number of 'squirrel tail' variety marijuana plants obtained from Sakhonnakhon. All the extract will be sent to t...

Baggage Checkin Udon-Texas

I vaguely remember (either we or our daughter) traveling back to the US years ago and being able to check in our bags all the way to final destination. We're booked on an ANA flight from BKK to TX, and a Thai Smile flight from Udon to BKK. I noticed that ANA is in the star alliance with Thai Air.......

Detail Service for Truck

It's time to clean out the cobwebs from our 2018 Revo truck. I'm looking for a place that does detail like work, especially for the inside of the truck. Preferably not off the beaten path. If anyone has personal experience, please let me know the price as well

Re: So, when did they re-invent the spark-plug?

Our son-in-law was old school (age 37). He rebuilt a 1973 Firebird from a rust heap and sold it for $60,000. No matter he put in 80k in parts/engine and probably thousands of hours in labor. Having grown up with cars that bombed out after a few 10k miles, needing regular tuneups, brake changes, and ...

Re: The Historic Impeachment Trial of Trump

IMO the assumption that the Republicans have sufficient safe votes to avoid a conviction is by no means certain. The Demonrats have the means to turn many Republican votes to convict. They have sufficient U.S. and foreign sources to offer billions worth of bribes to dangle in front of Never Trump a...

Re: Udon Anniversary Celebration

Ttbomk, the dancers aren't paid to attend, nor for their uniforms, nor for transportation (buses and songtaews from Nongwahsaw, for example). The many Udonites who pass by the statue on a daily basis and wai do so out of respect......no Kim Jong Un sort of pressure to do so.

Re: Thai ID with chip to pay bills?

If you use an app such as Siam Commercial Bank or KrungThai Bank, you can pay electric bills easier than going to the office or 7-11. Simply scan in the QR code from the bill to pay the bill. No need for ID.

Re: Thai ID with chip to pay bills?

Something doesn't sound right. A few years ago, before we started auto-pay from our bank account, I often paid electric bills either at 7-11 or at the PEA office. All I had to show was the bill. No ID required.
