Yes, it is time that I hopped on my bike (The Sledgehammer), and hit the road again. This deed has to be done before I bacome too fat and lazy to move on. Have had a good rest here in Pattaya, thanks Leana. Had my birthday here, and thanks to all who sent me birthday wishes. Not sure where I am going now North, South, or East? I leave my computer here at Leana's condo in Pattaya (Jomtien), so I will only update the blog after I return.

Hello, I am eventually back on line (this is ME, ERNEST, in case you have forgotten). I have been on the road for almost 2 months, riding the new "Horse". He is rather hard on my backside, therefore I have named him "SLEDGE-HAMMER". On this ride I have cycled some "new" routes, as well as places where I have cycled before. After 11 broken spokes, MAJOR gear problems, NO punctures, and 4004 km, I am back in Thailand. (Yes, I am still POORER than a CHURCH MOUSE). Please bear with me, as I am busy working on an update for this blog.

Well then, I won't mince words. I have a new horse (bicycle). Old Saartjie has "HIT THE FAN". It worked out too expensive to replace all the parts needed to get the Poor Old Nag up to standard. However, She served me well, clocking up over 150 000 km in almost eleven years.

On a rainy Monday morning, 18 December 2017 (exactly a month after entering Malaysia) I left the country via the river bridge from Rantau Panjang to Sungai Kolok in Thailand.
