Rode my motorcycle 135 miles northeast to Chiang Rai. Took over five hours at an average speed of twenty five miles an hour. Remember, I’m on a 150 cc bike. Lots of beautiful scenery, but it got more exciting on the way back, taking a loop north along the Burma border, ending up in Thaton, then Fang, then down to Chiang Dao and finally back home to Chiang Mai. Pastoral bliss all around. Took me two days to drive the 200 miles home! This being retired is OK.
