    Luckily,I was able to contact a friend of mine in Victoria before I left and was assured a place to stay for a month or so .He is a Native Indian antique dealer
    often going on buying expeditions in Canada and U.S and needed someone to go along on o trip to the U.S. down to Wyoming and back,and do some of the driving ,plus he was carrying a mittfull of cash and didn't want to travel alone!
    So I flew back from Toronto to Seattle where H. met me and after a week of going to Indian reservations(he buys very high end Indian masks,artwork,textiles,cradles at the source and resells on the International market)we drove back to Victoria.
    And Thailand still beckoned......
    There was one bank account that I still had from my"normal" days.H also paid me a few hundred for driving and said "Take Off Eh!!!".H could see how kind of lost I was and felt.My X-wife was not allowing me to see my kids(at the time) I was still reeling from all of the changes in my life that I had gone through in the last year or so!
    I just wanted to go back to Chiang Mai....go figure!!
    After the plane ticket I think that I had no more than $2500.Cdn when I arrived back in Chiang Mai
    Now things start to get interesting...

    Could we have the story in larger chunks please?
    Line by line makes it hard to keep track of what's going on.

    Probably on of the few good thing about getting older is that you get a chance to think and reflect about the things that you have done!
    Instead of being a sensible fellow I went first to see the notorious lady from Hell!!!!

    What a f** troll. Left wife for Thai girlie and quick bucks. Used everyone he met. Looking for freebies everywhere.

    Anyone who uses !! after every sentence is also a f** winkwonk in my book, and the tales here just buttress my opinion of this dipsh*t.

    No wonder I hate being associated with Canadians. Look at this f**ing loser.

    Using other people for your own means to an end is not a funny story, and that's what you did.

    I am assuming you didn't actually read from the beginning of this thread..
    The story is trying to illustrate my many foibles and missteps.My two major financial losses way back then were not due to any dishonesty on my part ,I can assure you,I got fleeced!!!.Later,I signed over to my x-wife, clear title ,no mortgage,.. our home for 1 dollar.If you had read the beginning of the thread you would have seen that I even brought my wife to Thailand!!
    When I think of some of the things that I ended up going through..You are right..I was a dumb shit when I got myself into this...but I have always generated my own income..even then!!!!!

    I realized quickly how important it was to get an idea of what was being said around me .I remember getting someone at the G.H I was staying at the time to say the numbers up to a hundred,from there it was easy to 1 thousand were it changes a little and the same for 10,000 etc.After listening,and jotting down some notes,I proceeded to walk around the moat in Chiang Mai,counting each step..neung ,sawng,saam,sii........sawng roi,yiisip et,sawng roi yii sip sawng,.....neung paan samm roi sii sip haa....etc..At the end of it I could count in Thai..a rudimentary first step but a first step at least. The question word came next How where when what why.more tomorrow
    cheers garye

    ^ True, Begbie. But, how did this guy live in Thailand for 5 years with no visa and no money? Collect beer bottles? And then left the country and then got back in?
    How did you get out of the country after five years wih no visa Gary? How much did you pay? You are so adept at numbers you must know. That's all you talk about.

    ^20,000 baht. That used to be the maximum fine. Pay it at the airport on the way out.

    Over the years I've known a few people here who seem to have lost their passports. Anyone remember David West who lived on top of a mountain near Mae Ka Junt half way between Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai ?

    can't be bothered searching but thought he said he evolved to eat for 15-20 baht per meal, doesn't sound quite as sad and I have seen farangs in Pattaya match that.

    Keda. he has not answered how he got out of Thailand with no visa for five years and no money. But he got back in the country after that? Lemme reread about the meal cost post. Something smells here.

    Yeah, he said he learned to enjoy 20 bt meals, well, I do as well, have done for years even in Bangkok where there is plenty of choice and I had a generous budget.

    As much as enjoy reading the story, I could do with more details and maybe some paragraphs in the longer posts.
