A BIG CONSTRUCTIONS SITE – THEY ARE BUILDING THE MIGHTY ISLAND ROAD

I WAS RUNNING DOWN THE DUSTY ROAD AND FOUND AN EXCAVATOR SITTING THERE – GOT SOME DIGGING EXPERIENCE FROM MY WORK HISTORY AND THAT WAS A PRETTY 30T MACHINE – THE OPERATOR ASLEEP – I JUMPED UP THE TRACKS WOKE HIM UP AND SIGNALISED I WANT TO PLAY AROUND FOR A BIT. HE WAS COOL WITH IT AND JUMPED IN THE BACK STRAIGHT AWAY. SO WHOEVER HATES THE NEW ISLAND ROAD – UNFORTUNATELY I WAS PART OF IT.

MAKING FRIENDS ON THE ROAD

CROSSED AT THE SOUTHERNEST BORDER INBETWEEN KOH KONG AND HAT LEK

BEST BORDER I HAVE BEEN SO FAR.

THE CAMBODIAN SIDE WAS EASY – JUST A FEW LITTLE SHACK’S – HAD MY PAPERWORK DONE IN 3 MINUTES. DROVE TO THE THAI SIDE. THAT BORDER POST WAS A BIT BIGGER BUT STILL VERY TINY. GOT THERE AND SOME PEOPLE PLAYED BALL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD. WE JOINED IN AND TO FIND OUT LATER THAT THESE GUYS ARE ACTUALLY BORDER OFFICIALS. VISA ON ARRIVAL AND CAR FORMALITIES ARE EASY AS ASWELL. HALF AN HOUR LATER AND WE WERE ABLE TO DRIVE THROUGH
