where to buy walking stick

I needed one for my recovery from hip surgery. I had a villager make me one from a bamboo with the root on it. It is a common type of cane in Isan. The root makes a little bend at the top for a good hand hold. Here's an article on some fancy ones in Thai.

Three-phase experience.

There is 3 phase at the training center. It is there because there are 3 phase motors (e.g., concrete mixer). 3-phase motors draw much less current than single-phase motors. The motors themselves are less expensive. It cost in the neighborhood of 100,000 baht to get 3-phase as the village only at si...

Stool

Try the rattan/bamboo shop across from Chaeron Hotel. We ordered our rattan furniture from them. I believe it was made in Northern Thailand.

Android Tablet Repair

My son Thomas replaced his on his Nexus 7. We ordered the part on-line. But, we could have had it replaced for free from the Nexus 7 representative in Nong Khai, ECS. Their office is on the road that T's into the Friendship bridge approach.

I've used Thai Life Insurances, travel health insurance before. http://www.thaihealth.co.th/2012/index_eng.php You can sign up on-line and it is pretty straight forward.

Erawan Prabuthabahtbuabok

Since the princess visited a few years ago, the cave has been developed with foot paths and foot path lights. I like the National Park in Ban Phu District - Prabuthabahtbuabok. There are several trails in low hills. The rainy season is actually an interesting time to visit.

Quality hand tools and Teflon tape

For good quality hand tools try Baw Chaeron Hydraulic near the Jane Plastic intersection in the neighborhood of the Thai-Isan market. They have a good selection of hard-to-find tools. The best place I've found for gas burner parts is a store on Posri road diagonally across the intersection from the ...

Septic Tank repairman

Not many people have the stomach to tackle septic problems. Do you have a 2-tank system? Do you have a leach line (or lines or a leach field). Even these can become clogged with the fine roots from trees. I have no problems with my septic system because I have a dry composting toilet. With this drou...

Automotive Electrical Repair Facility

There are lots of automotive junk yards in Udon. Try the one on Udondusadee road near the intersection with Srisatha.

For a new after-market horn try Chai Chaeron (or is it Chareon Chai) auto parts on the road from the stature circle towards the old bus station.
