  1. Good morning to you Chuck and Paige from Singapore. Watching your video while on the graveyard shift. It’s 0640 hrs here. Same age as you Chuck, but still have to work. Wished to retire as you. Have a great day to all. Stay safe, stay healthy. God bless. ❤️🇹🇭❤️🇹🇭❤️🇹🇭

  2. mmh Progress….. sometimes good sometimes bad… clean up you say…. that can be good and bad too…. Thailand beauty lays in it’s openess, …. I hope it always is a land of smiles… the world needs a place like that… it always will. 7 good things and 7 bad things….. balance 🙂 loved the old video’s

  3. Interesting video.that’s a place me and my wife want to drive up to from buriram..looks really interesting..I know I’ve said it before but yours Joe’s and James videos really help when your missing Thailand and being stuck in the uk.thanks for sharing

  4. I’m a very positive person too but here’s the thing about positivity is you have to be right every time because if you not a negative person will say see I told you so as they only have to be right once . IDC I choose to be positive even in negative situations It just makes for a happier existence

  5. Nice video clip of Nakhon Phanom. I personally would have loved to have been stationed there or Korat during Vietnam. Would be nice to be able to travel back in time.

  6. Thank you. I appreciate you and the things that you do. An old soul (body and mind) can tell many stories of their life and events that changed them for the better. Please give paige a hug , and give ma a kiss on the cheek (or the other way around).

  7. You were getting the meat sweats in that Japanese all you can eat restaurant. LoL. It is nice to see some business on the walking street. I’m glad you are enjoying what you can at the moment. The little balcony was cool. Do you have any videos talking about Thai dancing with the cool hand movements? I’d like to see that and hear you talk about it if possible. What are your favorite parts of Thai culture that we don’t know about in the US? Thanks for the great video!

  8. great video, I like the night scenery. I’ve seen that old clip, I think it’s by an airman from the special ops base…a little bit of America in Isaan with soap box derbies. My Thai friends in China go nuts over Regency brandy, i find it too sweet. Like watching your video’s early mornings here in northern China

  9. Circumstances make it next to impossible for me to ever imagine actually visiting Thailand and that’s why I am so grateful to be able to regularly experience it through your eyes. Can’t say thank you enough for all the joy you bring in allowing me to escape my bubble every now and then.

  10. If my buddy and I made back I’d like to return to nakorn phanom but I thought it would be the one place in Thailand I’d like to rent a motorcycle and travel to tat phanom and around the area

  11. Chuck & Paige, another great video. I will definitely be checking out Nakhon Phanom after my quarentine and get settled in. What a beautiful town especially along the river. 😊👍

  12. Worrying about the world is like sitting in a rocking chair, keeps you busy but gets you no where. Your attitude, Chuck, is contagious! Keep up the good work Chuck!

  13. Things are 99% normal here in Sydney , no masks , you can go the beach , pub , restaurant, theatre. Work , ( yuk ) its great to be living in Sydney, and its summer , 😍😍😍 we are blessed,

  14. Whether you are rich or poor, I don’t know anyone who won’t take advantage of a discount. My best friends wife is from Ubon and one of my good friends/co worker was stationed there during the Vietnam War so when I visited her hometown in 2017 I made sure to take some pictures of where the old USAF base was, he loved it. Thanks for giving us a POV of the Walking Street in Nakon Phanom I loved it. I would never pay attention to the naysayers about Thailand, I’ve been to those other places and it’s still my favorite place on earth! Thanks again guys! Cheers, Tony

  15. Chuck showing his age and wisdom. Change is a constant, so the key take-away is learn to adapt with the time. As noted, people tend to be afraid of changes and sadly, get stuck in a stale environment for most of their lives. Stay safe over there … best wishes.

  16. looking at the old films, I am reminded of an author William Lederer who wrote a series of stories combined to be called ‘The Ugly American’ . It was a movie starring Marlon Brando I believe. Just stories about cultural differences and assistance. I’m 71 and still remember it. Cheers

  17. Really nice,love watching all the beauty and serenity between Thailand and Laos videos.
    Hope be on my way to Thailand in the next year once I hit 50 or two as long as I can get this battle with the gov. over with.
    Sure hope the visa/immigration situation doesn’t get more challenging in the meantime.

    The street scene sorta reminds me of carnivals in the US just in the way it’s set up and people wondering around,but the carnivals are out to rip you off.I learned a little how they “worked” back in the 90’s when I worked with one that ran the OH State Fair for a week in-between jobs.I never been back to a carny since.

  18. Easy rule for you Chuck to remember the Thai year is just to count down from 5, NB ! important to stop in time, before 0 at least 🙂
    Thai year is 543 year before the western world.

  19. Good day Chuck & Paige,
    I agree with you. Everything will change over time. Nice relaxing video walking around full of Thai life and food.
    In your hotel room you remarked about the safe being out on the counter instead of being in the normal location.
    Funny thing is in most hotels I have stayed in the Philippines . The Microwave is usually located there or on top of the little refrigerator…the safe almost looked like a microwave. Maybe some day you will find the microwave in the closet.🤓🤓🤓🤓

  20. Chilling on the hotel balcony looked so cool!
    Correct, no place will ever be the same again. Same as post 9/11. Life got different and it never went back to pre 9/11. Pre covid19 is gone! Sad but true.

  21. You didn’t see that big, hot, coal grill in the middle of the table? You have eaten at places like that before so didn’t you know someone would have to cook on that hot big coal grill? 🤣 I understood what work was involved with those meals after the first one. 😆 My girlfriend loves it and doesn’t mind cooking everything so I like grill table dinners date nights.

  22. Thanks for the video again good to see Thailand this way miss the place and looks like it will be another year without visiting family in Petchabun at least this way i get the feeling from being around and as you said everything changes all the time or nothing last forever while every change is not for the better it is the way of life thanks again and love your videos keep going and don’t bother about comments too much you’re doing a great job you’re a lucky man to be in Thailand its a better place than many others and no choice in Thaila there is no time to be sad if you do it the right way.

  23. Thank you for this vid. was happy to be in febr last year , before the Chinese covid19 …. mis thailand used to be with mother every year from Holland

  24. Thank you for the video. Very beautiful video. I’m not feeling good today and can’t go to work . Makes me very happy to see this and gives hope . Maybe coming to Thailand for coeple of months. Jussi, Finland!

  25. My favorite quote that I try to live by:
    “Empty your mind. Be formless, shapeless, like water. You put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle. You put it into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”
    Bruce Lee
    I could almost smell the food, thanks for another day in paradise, many blessings to you, Paige and family 🙏🏼
    Cheers 🍻

  26. Great video Chuck! I was stationed there in 1974 to 1975 and the old video you posted really brought back some fond memories. About the only thing recognizable in the modern city is the clock tower. I’ve seen some older videos showing what the old Air Force Base looks like more recently and it seems there’s not much standing other then the new airport. I was a security police drug dog handler and we use to do spot checks of personnel and the planes goin back to the world in the back area and the flight line. Anyway, thanks again for the nostalgic look back.
