I live in Newport NC about 12 miles from the Atlantic Ocean and spend my days doing yard work and watching FOX news and ESPN.�� My wife and I travel to Thailand each year in the winter and spend two or three months traveling around the country.� Have become a member of the Morehead City� Tea Party Patriots working with folks who are tired of the U.S. Congress ignoring taxpayer.� We had a great day on 9/12/2009 and had over a million patriots let the congress know how we feel.� We are planning our next endeavor on Nov Th get the people in the county ready Nov 2010.

Well Nov 2 2010 has come and gone and I feel the TEA Party had a great Victory.  NOW we will see if we have any honest politicians left.

AS OF 10 AUG 2012"

My wife and I are preparing to start out on something we have wanted to do for many,many years, but with five children to raise we thought it an impossible dream.  

 Well next month we leave for Thailand and will reside there for most of our time, coming back for things like Graduations and other important family events.

The house has been packed up items the kids did not want we sold some,   And items we did NOT WANT TO PART WITH went into storange.  Then a month of yard sales  AND NOW  what's left goes to charity.

So on 18 Sept we fly out of Dulles Intl Airport and our new life in Thailand, (which has always 'had a special place in my heart), Can't wait!!

The Wife and I returned from Thailand on 3 Mar 2010 and we had a GREAT 87 Days.   Traveled up to Chang Mai and the surrounding area visited some places and ate some great food.

DID NOT MAKE IT TO UDORN,  just didn't get it fit into our wandering.

Spent some time in Koi Samui and some of the other islands and did some snorkling and really had a good time.

Looks like we may head back around December, anyone on this site living in Thailand having an interest in a get-together and swap stories over a few beers let me know.

The wife and I returned to Thailand on 28 Nov 2010 and we have visited KORAT, UDON THANI, AND NKP, As well as going to Thakhek Laos.  And we still have until 15 March2011.  Its been a good trip met some folks and have really enjoyed ourselves. 

One person I had not seen since 1982 was Ed Miller (a member of this site) we were in Bangkok together in the 70s.  Met up with him and his wife in NKP where they have a home, took us around and showed us immigration as I had to get my VISA extended by next month so we got it out of the way early.

For the old Udorn hands, things have changed and its NOT at all like you remember it, some say its progress, but I'm a little disapointed.  

Took some pics on the base, not the best, but was not able to get out of the car just a drive and shoot.    Things have changed!
