    How many fatalities on the UXO deep search teams. It sounds horrific.

    I started there in about 2006 and there really wasnt a huge effort to promote safety, all that came later with the training and discipline etc, We could still get a beer onsite in both camps but you had to be zero alcohol by start of shift, Back then there was always lots of partys and it was a pretty good social scene


    Nothing gave the guards a bigger laugh in there otherwise boring day than catching someone blowing over zero, instant dismissal

    our wet mess

    That must be the drug squad anal probe for detecting contraband yaba smuggling onsite.

    Good to see you got the greenlight on that one BLD!

    Looks like a strict guard who enjoys his job too much

    It varied on what tasks they did for example i think cutters were on about 55000 kip a day. samplers on a drillrig about the same maybe 65000 for night shifts. This rate was actually stipulated by the Lao govt as being fair if you as a foreign company try to pay more than a local company will pay then you are creating a false economy, just the way it is. Personally i would of liked to see them on more but iit wasnt up to me, Certainly skilled Lao geologists engineers were aall on fairly good money by local standards because we could only find them in vientiane sometimes savannakhet. most didnt know much after graduating anyway and still needed a lot of training

    He was a bit of a coont that guy, The YABA testing came a few years later when they figured out that there actually was a yaba problem in the village

    Surprised they send out girls with machetes. I though an industrial brush cutter/slasher would make quicker work of it.

    Strangely enough none of the uxo team were killed. perhaps because of the Farang supervision? Mostly they suffered macchette wounds or snakebites on the ass while there overalls were down to take a dump. or they would get injured in the seemingly endless road accident. We did have a couple of murders in the camp though. Mostly The Laos and Thais fighting over gambling and shit

    The endless road accidents


    oops that one was me, came over a rise with the sun in my eyes and turn where there was only open air, ( no safety bund) wasnt to far down






    FFS guys cut it out im running out of Landcruisers

    I remember the earlier thread you did, also staggeringly good, with plenty of accidents.
    Surprised the company didn't invest in some ex military recovery vehicles.
    Blinding good thread, funny as fook with tons of human interest.

    You are the boost that New York bloke promised aren't you BLD. Loving it mate.

    Gotta agree on both counts. I think when they decided to go owner operator the boom was still on and gear was hard to find. Cat might of given them a good service contract also?

    Lao people are definately party people. For being stuck on a remote site the nightlife was surprisingly good



    And they sure like to eat
