    The Edventure starts now!
    The airline was a little weird about used tires being my checked luggage.

    Me and the tires made it safely to Chiang Mai Thailand. As many of you know, I keep a bike here. So I plan to do some exploring.
    Remember Joop? She unfortunately found a new BF so I don't think I will be seeing her anytime soon. :-(
    But I still have my lucky string on so who knows what could happen.

    But my focus will be on riding my bike this time.
    Surely some Edventures are in store for me.

    I am rolling again. Perfect weather. Perfect temperature. But don't come here. Chiang Mai is crawling with tourist, hippies and backpackers. And there are so many big bikes now, I think I either need to get a new bike or start calling my bike a scooter.
    But being a Honda, it started right up as always. I just spent about $70 on new heavy duty tube, oil filter, brake pads, chain lube and new chain so I think I have everything I need to do a little exploring before I do my big, multi country loop.

    So far it appears my magic string has lost its power. I wonder if I need to head back to India to have it recharged.

    Maybe a week in Bangkok will recharge the magic string. If it doesn't... well, it's still a week in Bangkok.
    Glad to see you back on another Edventure. Thanks for bringing us along.

    I saw this the other day. Naturally, the Edventures came to mind.
