    A wee bit o' bamboo rafting up North.

    We all like to get wet now n again.




    Unfortunately they don't offer an IV service.

    Up along to Mae Wang, 40 or so KM out past Hang Dong.


    Down to check out the Grade 7 rapids



    We all need sustenance.



    Gai Yang with side of nasal stick and dysentery.



    With some extra protein.

    I thought we started there, but were led out to be driven exactly 4 minutes upstream in a pick up.


    The previous victims being taken away.



    With 2 buckets filled with ice and beer.


    The fookers.

    Arriving at the drowning point.





    Christening her the Titanic would have been a bad omen, so the SS Loosatania it was.

    Apparently there are elephant camps along the way, and after 5 minutes we got our first glimpse.




    Funky monks.

    Strange place to have cock rings hanging up. What sorta place is this.



    Probably worse places to have an evening BBQ and be eaten alive by mosquitoes.


    How to successfully navigate the raging torrent.





    How to incorrectly do so.

    An ol' Datto?


    It quite impressively took the full load out of the water and up an 85% incline.

    It was right around this time NHR was out pushing me along, and she only went and stood on a GoPro Hero 5.







    It was right after this shot my phone decided to jump into the water and that was that.


    Which was a real shame ans 5 minutes later a 3 meter long fresh water crocodile jumped up onto the raft, I wrestled it with my trademark deathgrip, and donated it's corpse to the local restaurant. No photos, unfortunately.

    Back to the restaurant place, me phone came back to life, and surprisingly enough, so did the GoPro.









    6,700 personal photos to go through?




    Will try me damnest to track the owners down.


    Would be a real, real shame if I had to keep it and use it for me motobike rides.

    That's some serious white water raftin there LuLu. Were you white knuckled in utter fear?

    You should do the life vest float along the Kaeng Krachan river and do some of those water slides they have all along the river. Outstanding death defying airborne fun...
