Day 14 Phetchabun to Phrae
After passing the King's summer palace, the day started with a regularity test up the mountain to Phu Hin Rongkla. The climb at slow speed in the test was so steep that today was the first day when our engine got very hot. A cool breeze on top of the mountain and a cautious descent took care of the cooling off. This teak country, the trucks on the road are loaded with hardwood and sugar cane. Lunch was on a floating village with view on a herd of water buffalos.
The second test was called the "stairway to heaven"; a special speed test on gravel. We are happy with our results.
