    A sundowner in your honour. Now a nice malt for a nightcap.

    I’m tempted to see if I can order a decent rye whisky…

    ^^^ Hater. I probably won't drink on the plane. I usually don't so after that WhistlePig last night I am going to start detox. Haha.

    Oh wait, I might have a knock at SFO. Depends on when we get there. Our flight is late evening. The bar may be closed.

    Just saw Misskit's news update they are allowing unvaccinated people to go out and eat and whatever. Wife read it too. She is pounding away on her phone to a bunch of people looking to get our ASQ reduced. Makes no sense. We are fully vaccinated. It should be cut to 5 days and we do self quarantine at home. I better hold off on ordering the BBQ pit.....

    Yeah. Back to the fun and games and scratching my head again. All good. I am easy. It's what makes living in Thailand entertaining.

    My wife can be pretty tenacious when it comes to wasting money or paying for unnecessary things. I just let her do her thing and laugh.

    Got up this morning and logged in my daily fast paced walk. Covered about 3.5 miles RT as noted in my health app. I walked along the waterfront. Beauty morning.



    Watched a few planes skip across the strip......



    At about the 2 mile mark found a nice hotel with a coffee shop. Grabbed me up a small Latte and sat and enjoyed the view.



    My last look at a REAL bar and lots of choices......I welled up a bit.....




    I did pick this up for my pool bar when I get home. I wanted a used WhistlePig Oak barrel top but they were to big to fit in my suitcase.

    For the barrel top? No. Barrel tops are from Real used barrels and run about $60. Shipping is $75 to $90 and who knows what customs would do.

    why not just get one made in thailand - from teak if you want the cachet - and then get whatever CNC burned into it - you can then personalise it however you wanted - add maiarse for bonus points

    OK...checked out of Hotel. Have to wait in lobby now for a few hours before the airport shuttle picks us up. Wife and I got hungry and she twisted my arm (well not really) to go back to that Lobster/Shrimp/Crab place for an early dinner.



    I know...I know...But man. I got there and saw them and had to get a 6 top with an Allagash white beer.



    Oh yeah and a few Shrimp Tacos....



    Thought being Mendy showed his plastic shoes covering his infected toes, I would show my Vans and toes are good.....

    I sometimes scratch my head and wonder what people think getting vaccinated actually does.

    In my mind it only protects the individual from any severe effects of the virus, with the probability of between 605 to 95% depending on which vaccine was given.
    But it does not stop anyone from contracting the virus and spreading it to others and the spreader could quite possibly be asymptomatic and therefore not get tested.

    So in order to stop people spreading the virus the vaccination is not the right tool.

    To prevent anyone bringing the virus into Thailand it is necessary to make them spend time in quarantine, how long is dependent on the time symptoms take to appear or how long it what take for an infected person to register a positive test.

    So anyone already in Thailand is not a threat of introducing the virus into the country so they are free to roam provided they follow local protocols i.e. masks , social distancing etc.

    So in summary get vaccinated to protect yourself but that's all it does IMHO.

    Agreed Ootai. But my argument is that if people are out and about, why have quarantine at all..
    Right? Why does a 14 day make people any safer? People in Thailand spread it just as easy.

    I would love to give some payback for all the taunting I received while in ASQ, but sadly I think JP's quarantine food will be a lot better than what I'm eating on this boat. I can't use alcohol to tease either... he'll have the option of delving into his duty free. I've got nothing.

    Agreed but I think you missed the point!
    Quarantine is for people coming into Thailand and those that are here that have tested positive.

    I know those coming in (like yourself) have negative tests prior to arrival but how long does it take after contracting the virus does it take to return a positive test?
    As for people here spreading it just as easy I think like everything else Thai's are better just ask them.

    Of course. I will follow along. My wife is all over it. I am laughing. Probably futile. I am mentally prepared for 14 days

    I’ll double up on your behalf. Perhaps some Alaskan king crab for dinner tonight…

    Crazy times. SFO airport is virtually empty. At Check in the gal said that there will only be 56 people on the flight to Singapore.

    But I think it might be 2 short. Some guys covid test was over. He was pissed. Was running somewhere. I feel for him.
