    Great stuff mate, you full time in that part of the world these days? Anyway, where you selling the agar into? Know it is big in China and Vietnam but thought it was a bit hard to sell into most places due to CITES related restrictions.

    If you're referring to your Skype icon on TD, think you may have to adjust your settings in Skype. Tools>Options>Privacy Settings & then check "Allow my status to be shown on the web"

    Many thanks for posting.
    I love Paxse and the islands are a great place to chill out and ride a bike.

    Very good reading and pix, MeMock. Write as much as you want. E.g. would be interesting to know a bit more about the wood and the farm. Or point me to an earlier thread. Thanks.

    Living full time in Thailand at the moment but semi regular trips to Loas are happening to keep an eye on things. Have only sold within Laos at the moment but slowly ramping things up to hopefully hit other markets.

    Thanks SR. The wood has been talked about elsewhere so will try and dig out the thread(s).

    Hopefully this thread will resume in the next day or two as soon as I get organised!
    News is what someone, somewhere is trying to suppress - everything else is just advertising.

    Have got myself organised but photobucket is dragging the chain. Next part of the trip will be posted as soon as they are back online.

    Is anyone else having trouble with photobucket? I can log in and move around everywhere apart from my actual photos.

    I've noticed a few threads sans photos, so I guess I am.

    I remember trying to use the TD photo system years ago when I first started posting pics but my little brain could not handle the complexity compared to the ease of Photobucket (when it bloody works!)

    I agree, almost every other site has an easier system than TD for uploading pics.

    TD is very photo unfriendly.

    Thing is, if you rearrange your photos on Photobucket after you have linked to TD...you screw up the link and the thread is then useless without pics...so TD's loss really.....h and theoretically links are not allowed anyway.

    PB is now working again.

    At the end of part four we had arrived at the farm and had spent the afternoon getting the harvest ready to begin the following day.

    Early the next morning we were back at the farm after organising two motorbikes for Dad and Des to have for the day so that they could go out exploring. They dropped in on us at the farm before they hit the road. There bikes were left over from the Vietnam war (well not really but they rode like they were 40 years old we were told!)

    As I didn’t go with them I cannot really comment on what they got up to. All I know is that went up to the border crossing with Vietnam and then took some back roads for a bit of exploring. Here are some of their photos.
