Actually, when you read the notice the bays are also for the pregnant and elderly. Pregnant is easy to define, but elderly will be a very grey area."

Nice to realize this. My gf has been pregnant for about 20 minutes and she is really tired.

Re: Pleasant find up 88.

Name is Hunter Steak Restaurant = N 12.55555, E 099.92950 Did not think to ask what hours they are open. We had a large breaded fillet of fish with a small genuine salad, not just a piece of lettuce t...

Re: Need engineering ideas - launch for a boat

700 - 800 kg is not a very large boat. With engine, fuel, & other gear aboard, our 5 meter boat, built by the man alongside the highway in Thap Sekae is more than 700 kg, not including the trailer. As you are only talking beach launching a light weight 4 wheel carriage would be more efficient and pr...

It does not matter - you were drunk and obnoxious in public and cussing at the cop - and sound like you are still drunk

Re: When Have You Ever Got it 'Wrong' in Thailand?

The cop was too nice. He should have arrested this clown instead of letting him back out onto the road with the possibility of killing somone like you or me

Re: Solar power setup for your home in Thailand

Like Nereus said, your primary issue is an inverter and a battery bank with minimal solar or whatever charging method you choose because you will kick it with the grid. Actually, if your outages are not long lasting you may only need batteries, an inverter, and a small but well regulated conventiona...

Re: Solar power setup for your home in Thailand

You possibly also need a good automatic voltage regulator for your other stuff - TV, sound system, lap top & iPad chargers, etc. Evidently not available in Thailand, PM me - I will tell you where to get one. We had same problem, surges, spikes, outages. Cooked power supply on my Mac Book Pro and als...

Re: Dutch man with cancer claims Hua Hin Hospital rip off

I might add, even when going to HH Bkk Hospital I usually do not buy prescription medicine there unless it is controlled and available only at the hospital. I ask for the prescription and buy it where it is cheaper, usually in Chumphon or Bkk. Also there is a small pharmacy in Sam Roi Yot that is ch...

Re: Dutch man with cancer claims Hua Hin Hospital rip off

RCer » Wed Sep 14, 2016 4:17 pm I've seen a lot of Thai people using BKK hospital. I'm guessing they either make a lot of baht or have good insurance. Governnent hospitals are definitely cheapest but wife says, “Go to Bangkok Hospital”. There are others she likes better but in HH that is what we ha...

Re: FM Radio

FM radio frequencies fall between TV channels 6 & 7. A cheap TV antenna will do but an expensive one usually will not because they intentionally block out the FM radio frequencies to help minimize TV interference. Also be aware that TV antennas are directional when searching for a signal.
