Get a 6 month METV <-multi-entry tourist visa in your country before you wash up here. You can pull almost 270 days out of that visa if you time the border-bounces right and extend the last entry by 30 days at the immigration office. Plus it's good for unlimited entries/exits to thailand too.
One thing I've never understood about that visa is you need to show proof of employment, self-employment or pension. What about someone who wants to take six months off work?
