Re: Why do some farang not wear motorcycle helmets?

Some people do not wear helmets because they are idiots no matter where they might be. I have only had two motorcycle accidents and both times my helmet has saved my life. Thailand is no different. Geezer I apologise but I can't let this go unpunished. You have fallen off your motorbike not once bu...

Re: Thai Boxing Gyms

The Grind is changing hands on December 1st.
The new head trainer is nothing short of genius.
It will probably take him a month to get things running smoothly.

I've never been to the gym itself but I can recommend the man at the helm.

Re: Handsome Hua Hin tortoise seeks fertile mate.

Late 70's UK you could buy a tortoise from the pet shop for a quid. Not being allowed normal pet I was placated with two of the little bastards. Aged eight I had no idea why I needed two of them. I wanted a cat really. Natural selection prevailing one died and the other got pretty big. Mid 80's tort...

Re: Thai Boxing Gyms

I train at Cong Carter early morning.
There is no class.
It is possible to pay a drop in fee and use the equipment for 150.
You could arrange a one on one pad holder for an hour.

Re: New Guy and need some travel advice?

The sport store in Hua Hin market village basement has 12 Oz twins, velcro strap for 1500bht. Cong Carter gym has a decent selection of gear at bkk prices + 10%. I'd be tempted to leave my Bangkok equipment shopping to the journey home. I find it's a bit of a nightmare when unacclimated and jet lagg...

*Closed* Physiotherapy for visa run. *Closed*

Due to the success a previous 'skill swap' advertisement I thought I'd try another. This time I need to find someone who is driving to Ban Phu Nam Ron in early November and who would be willing to take my wife and I with them. (She is only small, 50k when wet, Canadian though). In return I can offer...
