Road Trip – Lampang to Chiang Mai to Mae Hong Son – Part 2 – Chaesorn National Park

| November 13, 2010 | 40 Comments | 24,011 views

On the way from Lampang to Chiang Mai, we charted a course transiting Chaesorn National Park.

There is road that goes through the park from one actual destination to another – a road through a park that actually goes somewhere.


The park employed first degree price discrimination by charging foreigners a higher price than Thai’s.

I know this differential pricing gets the angry Expat contingent angrier but, personally, it never bothers me.

In Los Angeles, you have to pay to camp and hike in the Angeles mountains, the museums charge a stiff entrance fee, and a day at Disneyland costs $75 sans food and beverage .

Paying $7 to get into a great park doesn’t seem like something that should get your panties in a bunch but for a lot of expats its part of their schizophrenia.

Many Expats want to be given special treatment by the Thai police and authorities because they are “bringing money” into Thailand but they want be treated as normal everyday Thai’s when it comes to pricing by the government.

The attitude is part of the general expat hubris endemic among many expats. Ca la vie.

Besides, we showed the guards our Thai driver’s licenses, chatted a bit in Thai, asked them to let us in for the Thai price and, lo and behold, they waved us through.

Sweet.

The road is a mostly a one lane paved track that winds up and down the mountains.

It’s so deserted inside the park  that we traveled for over an hour and never encountered another vehicle coming the other way.

We passed a couple of inhabited areas but no one seemed to be going in or out.

The roads were so steep that the transmission fluid temperature light actually came on and we had to pull over and let it cool off.

Actually, I am not sure that we didn’t cause the transmission to overheat by keeping it in 4WD mode while driving mostly on a paved road.

My understanding is that 4WD should only be engaged when there is some slip between the ground and tires such as during a rainstorm or when driving on a dirt surface.

Most of the driving was on a paved surface although on the steeper portions that were wet, the rear tires were slipping in 2WD.

Anyway, when the transmission temp light came on, we pulled over enjoyed the view for awhile and continued on without problem.

There were some great mountain views and pretty much anywhere you could pull over besides the road, walk 10 meters into the jungle and be completely isolated from humanity.

From a previous post:

If you knew where all the Bangkok Thai G-Clubs where, knew how they worked, what motivated the girls, and how, to acquire one as a girlfriend without wasting time and a ton of money, the Nakabhuri Resort is a perfect out of town getaway for you and your girl.

Once you check in, as long as your honey is with you, there is no reason to leave and you are in the perfect place to enjoy her fully. Ooops. I meant enjoy her company fully. 555

Every day you can slip her into the cheap micro bikini you bought in Bangkok, oil her up with some coconut oil and spread her out on a towel by the pool. Periodically drag her by the hair back to your air conditioned room and have a private party all weekend.

For dinner the Nakaburi has a gourmet restaurant and a local band plays at night.

Every night, you can walk down to the club restaurant and have a nice dinner with your honey.  Ply her with potent and powerful tropical drinks where the alcohol is masked by fruit juices until she is happy and horny.  Drag her by the hair back to your air conditioned room and have a private party all night and every night.

I should write copy for the Thailand Tourist Authority. 555

You can rewrite this for Chaesorn National Park.

If you knew where all the Bangkok Thai G-Clubs where, knew how they worked, what motivated the girls, and how, to acquire one as a girlfriend without wasting time and a ton of money, Chaesorn Park is a perfect out of town getaway for you and your girl.

Tell your girl to make a nice picnic basket.

Drive into the park with your 4-wheel drive.

Choose an isolated spot miles from humanity, where hours pass and no car drives by on the road. Walk 10 meters into the jungle and find a grassy knoll next to a mountain stream. and you are in the perfect place to enjoy her fully. Ooops. I meant enjoy her company fully. 555

You can slip her out of whatever she is wearing, oil her up with some coconut oil and spread her out on a towel on the grassy knoll and have a private party. I don’t even think its illegal like it is in America.

    (Editors Note: The story continues)

    And then I told my girl what I really wanted…to get laid better, cheaper, and more efficiently. Of course, she, being a poor girl from Isan who I picked up at a Nana Plaza gogo bar, didn’t like hearing that. (I know I said she was a gclub hottie but truth be known I couldn’t pick up a gclub girl if I paid her salary for a year.)

    “You tell me you take care of me. You tell me you gib me big money. You cheap charlie I think.”

    What could I tell her but the truth. Being miles from any sign of civilization she had absolutely zero bargaining power. The perfect getting laid cheaper scenario.

    “Yes, I told you that but I lied. You are just a poor and stupid farm girl from Isan and I am smart teacher from America. You do everything I tell you for 100 baht/day or I will leave you here and take back 99 baht bikini I buy you.”

    What could she do but submit to my demand. So as you can see, it was a win – win situation for everyone. I got my sex slave for the week and she made a princely sum of 700 baht. Isn’t Thailand a great country?!?

  2. Big Black Gilliver says:

    So lets get this right?  The nutty professor Kenny is back moderating and encouraging sex with prostitute stories on his blog again?
    Inquiring minds want t know, who is the English Teacher in the story Prufrock or Werewolf (Bangkok Guy)

  3. Wentworth says:

    You are narcissistic dickhead. You are overweight, that is an undeniable fact.
    Every time you open your mouth or write one of these laughable blogs the sum total of human knowledge diminishes ever so slightly. Luckily your photos rival those of Andreas Feininger and Felix Beato although to be fair to them GPS portraiture had not been invented when they were doing wedding quality photography. Someone is bound to ask why I read this blog? It is unintentionally as funny as fuck that’s why. Please Ken more deluded fantasies that sound like you’re talking about a blow up doll you comic god!

  4. Emily C says:

    Reading the comments makes me want to puke.

    I can imagine the all of you as a bunch of fat overweight losers whom no real woman who has a brain, education, and an independent personality would have anything to do with.

    No wonder you all live in Thailand.

    Men who go to Thailand are a bunch of pathetic losers who wouldn’t know what a normal relationship with a woman was if it fell on you and smushed you.

    Everytime I read the comments, I want to take a shower afterwards.

  5. Mr Cheesecake says:

    Hear Hear Emily C! How dare these fat overweight losers think they can marry real woman – 200 plus pound Farang females with their Marty Feldman looks and their Margaret Thatcher personalities

    Yes Emily, let these losers settle for second best in thailand and end up with charming & demure 100 pound lookers that are willing to please a guy

  6. Emily C says:

    When your money is gone your hookers will be gone.

    Get one of those blow up dolls from Japan.

    There will just as much love and feeling having sex with the blow up doll as there is when you have sex with your Thailand hookers.

    You are too stoopid to see that they only want your money and are laughing  when your not looking.

    Maybe when your money is gone and you are old and alone you will see the difference.

    It’s what’s inside that counts not what is on the outside.

    There is a difference between making love and sex but all the men in Thailand are  to stoopid to see it.

  7. Inciter says:

    Wow, ‘ronru’ trying on a dress, for a change….

  8. Mike says:

    “It’s what’s inside that counts not what is on the outside”
    That’s what every ugly girl says ……….

    Emily, have you had sex with a blow up doll and a Thai hooker ?
    No?
    Then you are not qualified to make such comments ….piss off and iron your boyfriend’s shirts, cook his dinner and get him a beer.

  9. Emily C says:

    You couldn’t handle a REAL woman who is smarter, more educated and assertier than you.

    The only thing real about your relationships with women are the money that you give them.

    By all means go to Thailand and give all the hookers your money.

    That is the only way any woman would be interested in you.

    When you ever feel the emptiness of your life maybe you will realize that paying for sex is not love and love is what makes you happy and fulfills you. 

    Have a nice life.

  10. RealDaffyDuck says:

    Hi Emilie C

    You’re so right!

    The guys here are all overweight chauvanist pigs!

    Come over to my site http://www.bigdummykenny.com

    We are all feminists over here and hate this guy too!

  11. RealDaffyDuck says:

    (rolls eyes)
     
    So nice to see that the usual impersonations are starting again.
     
    The comment above from ‘November 18, 2010 at 7:34 am‘ was, of course, not posted by me.
     
    http://www.bigdummykenny.com is not, of course, *my* site. It is operated and owned by BigDummy (appropriately enough). Of course, that news might not have trickled down all the way to Pak Chong yet.
     
    Hence, the comment was, of course, posted by the usual overweight, chauvinist expat pig, though.

  12. Mr Cheesecake says:

    Emily when you are in Bangkok next give me a yell, and I’ll take you to an Oily massage and get you a nice little bi-sexual minx to work over all the angst you have built up from not getting laid for years

    Its not your fault you are unattractive, but you can help yourself by doing things like losing weight, regular exercise, wearing a paper bag over your head, that sort of thingl

  13. Mike says:

     a REAL woman who is smarter, more educated and assertier than you

    Well, that eliminates you as being educated then Emily …a smarter, more educated woman would be more assertive, not “assertier”
    Of course, we all know you are probablynot a real woman anyway, just a stupid troll.

  14. Dr Love says:

     Aw shucks, dumb-ass Duck is back. Hell hath no fury like a demented iTard rejected

     Here we have Harry Zink posting under RealDaffyDuck, and moments later we again have Harry Zink posting under RealDaffyDuck denying he even posted his former comment – a real split personality moment if ever I’ve seen one – its medication time Harry

  15. Mr Cheesecake says:

    Kenny, regarding the two-tiered pricing to gain entry to the national park – one for locals, another for Farangs – you said…

    “I know this differential pricing gets the angry Expat contingent angrier but, personally, it never bothers me. Paying $7 to get into a great park doesn’t seem like something that should get your panties in a bunch but for a lot of expats its part of their schizophrenia”


    Then you turn around and ask to gain entry via the cheaper local price

    “Besides, we showed the guards our Thai driver’s licenses, chatted a bit in Thai, asked them to let us in for the Thai price and, lo and behold, they waved us through”


    Somewhat hypocritical ?

  16. Big Black Gilliver says:

    Mr. Cheescake,
    Why are you talking to Kenny he’s not here anymore.  If he were, here is the question I would ask.
    Kenny, why did the department take away your laptop computer which is issued to EVERYONE on staff except for you now?
    Why is it that you now have the ONLY desktop computer in the department???????
    Inquiring minds want to know.
     

  17. RealDaffyDuck says:

    In all fairness, you’re barking up the wrong tree there, MrCheesecake – I disagree that trying to barter for a better price would be construed as hypocritical.
     
    Personally, I do share that attitude — I have absolutely no issue with two-tiered pricing in Thailand, especially since the farang price is still ridiculously inexpensive. I also do agree that those expats continuously complaining about it are close to the line losers (to use a Kenny term).
     
    This doesn’t mean that when I encounter such a situation, that I don’t (sometimes) try to bargain for the Thai price with my cutest charming smile, while making fun of my own badly pronounced and broken Thai, and jokingly insisting that “I *AM* Thai”, and thus deserve the Thai price — all with a smile, and obvious tongue in cheek.
     
    More often than not, I get away with it, and get the Thai price from a smiling cashier; sometimes I don’t, and ‘have’ to pay the farang price; most of the time I still give the cashier a nice tip of 100 Baht or so, “for doing a good job” – I enjoy the banter, more than the discount, and everyone has a nice time, and big smiles.
     
    Isn’t that what it’s all about?
     
    Kenny has plenty of foibles, and he’s demonstrated plenty of times to be both an idiot and a dickhead, but in this particular case I disagree with you, as it doesn’t apply.
     
    Now, I wonder what alias’ Prufrock will dig up next, now that Emily and DocLove have surfaced, can ‘Bill Cooper’ or ‘Martin Scoreseasily’ be far behind?
     
     

  18. Big Black Gilliver says:

    On that note, I now wonder if Bill Simmons (loved his posts) was in fact Proofie?

  19. Justin says:

    Reading the comments from Mr Cheescake, Mike, and Big Black Gulliver, it’s pretty clear they have a lot of gender based power issues.

    It doesn’t suprise me that they moved to Thailand where the power in every relationship is with the men and they have run away from their homelands where the power is more evenly balanced.

    Instead of moving to where the women are oppressed and impoverished, the question, of course, is why don’t they try to improve themselves so that they could find an acceptable partner back in the developed world.

    I don’t think you have to be rich or handsome but it does help if you are a nice person and, clearly, from abuse they are hurling at EmilyC they are not nice people.

    If they didn’t verbally abuse women and obviously enjoy and get off on it, more women might want to be involved with them in some way.

    Keep speaking truth to power EmilyC!

  20. Mr Cheesecake says:

    Justin, I don’t have an issue meeting nice Farang women. In fact I purposely declined going out with one cause I knew I would be shortly whoring behind her back and didn’t want to hurt her. I am a nice person 🙂 just not ready to settle down

    If you marry a Thai lady they accept you could be whoring behing their back. As long as they don’t see it  its a matter of out of sight out of mind – these are the sort of women I like! If you get real lucky you might find a Thai girl that likes to go to the massage parlor with you! Lets team up Justin on a trip around Bangkok, you can be my wingman as we plough our way through the bargirls . I hope youre not a ladyboy sort of a guy cause then you’re on your own

    “Only pussy make me feel like me jus won de lottery”

  22. Justin says:

    Mr Cheescake, Balck Gulliver, and Mike

    From Gender, Interpersonal Power and Social Influence, Journal of Social Issues, 1999 by Linda L. Carli.

    French and Raven (1959) developed one typology of social power that has particular utility for understanding gender differences in social influence. Their model specifically delineated different sources of social power as bases by which people exert social influence. According to this model, the extent to which a person, P, may be influenced by another individual or group, O, depends on the relationship between the two individuals and, in particular, the way P perceives O. The model presents five sources of power: reward, coercive, expert, legitimate, and referent. An individual possesses reward power when others believe that he or she can provide them with desired rewards and coercive power when they believe that he or she can punish them. Bosses, therefore, would have both reward and coercive power over their subordinates because of their perceived ability to provide rewards, such as giving workers raises and promotions, and to provide punishments, such as firing or demoting workers. Individuals perceived to have expertise or knowledge, in a specific domain or more generally, possess expert power. Physicians typically have expert power relative to their patients and lawyers relative to their clients, at least with regard to their knowledge of medicine and law, respectively. An individual possesses legitimate power to the extent that others believe that he or she has the right to exert influence over others. This may occur because the individual holds a particular social role that commands respect or authority or because others feel a certain obligation to defer to that individual. Parents typically have legitimate power with respect to their children, as do priests or ministers with respect to members of their congregations. Finally, referent power refers to an individual’s or group’s likeableness or social attractiveness to others. Friends have referent power in relation to each other and a social group may have referent power with respect to an adolescent who would like membership in the group.

    Your verbal abuse and gender based harassment of EmilyC are signs of a deep seated hostility toward and a serious power issue with women.

    That you enjoy abusing women is a symptom of a serious psychological problem.

    I can only speculate on the storyline which led to these issues.

    You have relationships with Thai hookers because in Thailand you can excercise reward and coercive power.

    You most likely use that reward and coercive power to treat women in ways that would get you sued and fired if it occured in the workplace and arrested if you did it in a private personal relationship.

    The general claim that  you are in some kind of  legitimate and real relationship and that the women you abuse care for you in anyway when you are only paying Thai prostitutes for sex is ludicrous on its face.

    You might benefit from taking a Womans Studies class at a local university if you are interested in learning more about your problem and all of the social problems, e.g. human trafficking,  it creates in society.

    Editor’s note: Personal information redacted.

    Justin,

    Why have you not included …… in your diatribe, as he not only treats women similarly, exploits asian hookers in the same  manner you describe – but actually maintains a website on how to “Bang cheaper, better and more efficiently” — all the while being an economics professor at a renowned university, and thumbing his nose at the both the Asian Studies as well as Gender and Women Studies departments’ chairs…

    Yet, you do appar to grant him immunity in your accusatory diatribe. Why is that?

    While you’re at it — how come you and EmilyC share he same IP address? Are you roomates, using the same computer, by any chance?

    Maybe you could shed some light on that…

  24. Gilligan says:

    Hehehehe. Yep, you wonder why that dickhead would defend some chick who just came out of the woodwork. Troll troll troll troll.

  25. Big Black Gilliver says:

    Editor’s note: Personal information redacted.

    LOL  I remember … boasting how he enjoyed making the girls beg in his hotel room for some money to go shopping.  If anyone has some issues with women and “real” relationships its …….  Taking pictures and writing unwarranted semi-fictional sexual stories about her………….AND GIVING IT TO HER?????????  A ……..?
    Creepy!  When he loses his job he can go teach with Proofie and fit right in with the mutant masses here in Bangkok.
    Peace
     
     
     

  26. RealDaffyDuck says:

    (interesting how the ‘editor’ is still careful to remove any reference to himself from comments, but conveniently ‘forgets’ to do the same when others are impersonated – there’s still a ‘fake RealDaffyDuck’ in this thread, clearly identified and pointed out as such — not to mention all the other impersonations… So much about being reputable, eh?)

  27. RealDaffyDuck says:

    Justin,

    Hmmm… and Justin was heard from no more… just like the usual one-hit-commenter.

  29. Banging Cheaper says:

    i kinda like this story cause it reminds a bit of the version 1.0 site that had all the good stories about where to go to find whores in the country and had the gps stuff right there so you could just program the gps finder thing and WHAM and there you are. just need to know if there are any places close buy thaqt have barely legal teens and clubs that let em in with no problem. maybe a little small soi in a poor neighborhood with a few lights and plastic table and chairs where mom and dad are pimpin out nid and aom for a hundred baht or so so they can buy somemore booze or something.

    i dont think gclub girls get any motivation about want to go to the park tho cause they would rather be shopping so you sound like your talking shit but thats just me sayin.

    now i know you dont know much about using 4wd and are stupid to put a truck in 4wd when the road is dry and paved. wtf you do that for? i though i read once that you own a truck in thailand but i think you lie and only rent trucks because truck owners know when they need 4wd which for most people is almost never unless they drive in snow or unpaved muddie roads or real rough turrain with rocks and crevises and uneven grade

    so anyways enjoy your time in thailand and chasin after the whores and young teens there cause we know you like them but cant write about it anymore but i will keep looking for other new websites with your writing style because we know you wont ever put that stuff here unless you get fired from your job.
