Bon Voyage ... I am sure the banners will be out :shock: and maybe the drug sniffer dogs after all your prescription meds; see if your JR's can take care of them :lol:

Of course the leading question is, is Thailand ready for Geordie?

Its a big country i am sure there is room for one more crank :lol: :lol: :lol: so much to do as i have refused to get ready at all due to previous dissapointments :( :( My idea is five squaddies (big lads) throw the gear into boxes and leave the good new is the guy buying intends to rent it out so 80% of the furniture stays :D :D :D :D most of the stuff we are shipping has been in storage 18 months with a little bit here followed by a massive shopping trip

Hi Geordie when you ship here bring it in your wifes name so tax free and minimum hassle, and what about your colection of mowers I saw in a picture sometime back are they migrating to Thailand?

Patayapope yes that was the intention she also wants to bring her mini (car) ? We will be over there for a holiday first to get a breather and no doubt will be looking for advice The dogs are my priority anything else is just possesions

Leave the dogs, Thailand has enough already! :lol: . Seriously, congrats on selling the house (finally) and good luck with your move.
I thought I was wrong once but I was mistaken.

Congratulations! Now get off your backside, book the doggy flights and get over here where it's warm.
A tip .... contact Santa Fe Relocation here in Bangkok for your move. They're excellent and will put you in touch with their partner over there. That way you should rule out the dodgy ones.

Geordie,
Do not forget your obligations to science. As soon as Fred takes the dogs off your hands for his breeding kennels, it's time to borrow a member's car (preferably Gliffaes wife's car) and conduct our styrofoam experiment in the Chao P river. You must get your priorities right.
I always liked that saying "The money's in the bank".
P.S. Do not expect me to pick you up at the airport, my gun dog has too much class to be associated with your riffraff.
