Re: Number plate replacement

Evidently there is a form(amazing) they fill in and you have to keep a copy, so that when you get stopped for no plate you can show the receipt. Then you have to go to your local DL...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

You're normally excellent with this stuff Nereus, but I'm afraid you got it wrong this time. I was the proverbial drowned rat to prove Ha,Ha, been expecting this! :D I did not predict that it would not rain! What I was agitated about was the dire warnings that the whole country was going to be unde...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

I am beginning to believe that these people post stuff like this just cover their ***ss. Then in the unlikely event that there is heavy rain / floods, they are covered! From the synoptic chart issued this morning the "storm" is just an area of low pressure(1002hPa at the centre) with maximum winds o...

They also have a seat belt law, so how is that applied? My ancient Land Rover is registered as 7 se...

Re: Which Pick-Up Truck?

Additionally, I'm allowed 5 people in the back, so I have a 10 seater vehicle. Great for taking the dogs to the beach. The last thing anybody would call me is fashionable I am a bit confused by this. How do you get 5 people in the "back"? I thought that you had a double, or dual cab, which has fron...
