Let the Thai society know about your retirement life in Thai

Remember John.........nice guy, but did his research from bar stool crowd. He himself didn't indulge, but I'd say his 'research' was 'incomplete'........... :roll: Unless a case study of miserable drunken expats can be found to have relevance to anything. Maybe "What not to be and How to Avoid".... ...

A way to show closeness to Your new Hometown: Udon

yes, a show thing, as if wanting to actually cycle............that would be a nightmare. Hopefully if an entry fee / t-shirt sales thing, it will go (all) to a worthy cause. Enjoy cycling, well, used to, but never considered it a hobby or sport thing, just enjoyable, and usually by my self. If just ...

A way to show closeness to Your new Hometown: Udon

29 kms............whimps. I used to do more than that weekly, on a crap bike, from Ban Tat to UT, even stop occasionally on return, and have a few at Sri something golf course. OK, occasionally a few too many, and little lady would come pick me up, avoiding a couple deadly kms. Do that a couple time...

Laptops ! What's the run down

I was surprised to learn the US seems to be so much cheaper for electronics than EU / OZ. Getting 'authentic' software, Windows is the problem when buying locally. Need to verify windows immediately during purchase. JIB is good store and online site. Advice also, due diligence on research... :roll:

Laptops ! What's the run down

I'm an ASUS fan, and they can also order for you, though they offer slightly different / inferior specs than US offers. But if not a yank or have someone there to forward to you, oh well. NewEgg is excellent online vendor in US, amazing sales, especially a few months after release.

There's actually a bus that runs to town, but they keep it fairly hidden..............go figure. I believe it parks over to the extreme left.

House builder recommendations please

agree, like investing in a home anywhere.....location location location. Only rented in between builds, dead and lost money. Besides making 100% profit when selling, lived in first house for 7 years / rent free. 2nd house could easily sell, again for at least 100 % profit, and lived here shy over 4 ...

Laptops ! What's the run down

A yank, so wouldn't buy any here. I buy online in US, and had 3 sent over so far, much cheaper, and better specs, along with guaranteed original software. Only bought one laptop here in 15 yrs.

Seafood

Plenty to chose from, though 'fresh "sea"food', if wanting fish (salt water), then fairly limited to salmon. Crab, shrimp, lobster or fresh water fish, are no problem. Obviously, as pointed out, no beach, so no 'salt water' items will be fresh, hopefully, as impossible to be. But frozen is just as g...

Price of stainless steel gate?

That's one of those "how long is a piece of string" questions. 5k - 20k, and depends on lots of variables. Our gate was 6k, not as wide, but higher.

Best to take taxi from airport ฿200 to bus terminal about 20 - 30 min.
That's over priced. For ฿200, they can get a van / limo to Nong Khai from the airport.

Actually there is a hotel directly across from the bus station, and is fine for an overnight. safe and secure, walking distance to Central Plaza, and 3 excellent night markets near the train station. Chance are the last bus will be sold out. And if advance sales allowed, possibly the first one in th...

Naga fireballs.

yes, a natural phenomenon, and occurs more often than just the Oct / Nov full moon cycle. Come back in 6 months, and see without the crowd.

Probably a good showing this year due to the 'SuperMoon'.......... helping the Nagas with their aim.... :roll:

Easiest, fastest, cheapest divorce process that I've been through, BUT, as pointed out, needs to be done in person. Very simple, fill in the blanks form, no notaries, with one entry on back, for any uncontested settlement, which for me was one word, "nothing', as answer to what wife would receive. M...

There a place on the KK rd, on the way to or just pass Nong Soon, that will test / send away to, test your water. Not cheap to do, less than 5k baht.

TDS meter really doesn't tell you much. A reading of -0- wouldn't exactly be any better than a reading of 10,000. 8) Not that I would drink sea water. But a high number could simply be 'calcium' / hard water. Consider most bottled water comes in plastic containers.................. :roll: You may be...

searching for my family in Thailand

if located in Kutchap, doesn't seem like you'll have any problems locating. Small main town, farming amphur. You seemt to have it all sorted out, and just a translator to assist, as you state, seems to be all that's needed.
