    Hi Guys,

    I would just like to introduce myself to the forum and all my new friends.
    I am actually an Irish guy but I am living and working in Thailand.

    While growing up as a kid, more than a few years ago, I spent many years as a scout and absolutely loved camping, hiking and any general horseplay that we could get up to in the woods.

    Upon leaving school and entering the workforce I had to leave scouting and have really missed it ever since. In the past 6 months I have been trying to get into bushcrafting again but it seems I have forgotten a lot of what I used to know so I am excited to pick it all up again.

    I guess living out here in Thailand for so long has made me really miss the weather and perfect environment for camping and bushcraft that we had in Ireland. Not to say it's not here in Thailand but the crazy heat and swarms of mosquitoes have always kind of put me off it.

    Anyway, it's great to meet you guys and I look forward to getting to know you all in future and maybe even learning a thing or two from you.

    Cheers & best regards.

    Please post pics of your outings! Part of my draw to this forum is seeing places I'll likely never get to visit in person.

    Thanks very much. You know we always tell my son he's Thairish. It's great how well the two blend together to create that.

    Welcome from Virginia. I worked in Thailand for 3 years, '77-'80, mostly in Loei. Got married 40 years ago and came back in 1980. My wife just got back from a 2 1/2 year visit. We have a nice house up in Loei. Nice view from the back porch.

    How's your Thai? I can speak enough to survive. Our two kids never learned.

    That is a lovely house and very nice view. Loei is a place I have never visited. Is it worth a trip?
    I'm embarrassed to say my Thai is not very good at all. I can't really speak it. I know many words but I can't string a sentence together. It's a nice mix of finding it difficult to learn and being too lazy!

    Loei has some nice scenery in the hilly areas. They have some caves and interesting rock formations, etc.

    The main town is small and fairly really boring. The bulk of it is about 2 miles wide by 3 miles long.

    There is a motorcycle club with many expatriates who go on rides all over Loei and other provinces. Not much traffic and some nice twisty roads. https://www.facebook.com/Loei-Gentlemens-Motorcycle-Club-438022066276684/?epa=SEARCH_BOX
