I believe there is an amount of time that one has to be at an address to qualify for the reporting rule.
 Example would be. If you left your residence in Khon Kaen and went to visit a friend in Ubon. If you were to just spend the night and then leave for another destination, I don't think you or the owner or your friend is required to report you being there.  I could be wrong, but I think that is the way it is.  You need to be there something like 24 hours.
And if that is the case, you could leave and come back. Who is to know how long you  have actually been there?

It is a very large room. I am going to run these along the walls. Didn't want each one of them too long so that I can move them.  I figure 5 of them would work.

After careful consideration, I have come to the conclusion that if I want this done I will have to do it myself.  Sooooooooo, I went to Home Hub today and bought the material that I would need. They were nice enough to cut the wood to the size I needed. I bought enough to make two  clothes racks.  When I got home, I got right to work. It took me about 45 minutes of final cutting and drilling for the pole. I made only one today. I will make another tomorrow. I made it about 6ft in length and about 5 1/2 ft high.  The whole idea and why I didn't want to buy ready made at places like Big C and Home Pro is because other than cost, I am basically making one of the bedrooms a giant walk in closet for the wife.  I will be making about 5 of these racks. I didn't want the clothes cabinets that substitute for closets over here.  Just can't believe nobody makes anything like this. If I was in the Philippines, there would be shops everywhere. Yeah, yeah, I know. I am not in the PI.

 Well, anyway, thanks for all the suggestions. Kind of fun doing a project again anyway.

Thanks for the info. If I can't find a woodworking shop, I will have my wife give them a call.

Does anyone know of a woodworker or shop in Khon Kaen that can make me some clothes racks? They don't have to be fancy, just strong.

Maybe something like this.

Getting to and from Khon Kaen / Re: Parking Changes at Khon Kaen Airport
« on: September 02, 2016, 11:48:30 AM »
I always parked under the overpass. It is in the open air, but at least I don't get blocked in.  I never understood how or why people would park as to block others from getting out. The parking garage is almost impossible to navigate with everyone double parked.  There were times that I couldn't even make the turns to get to the lower level so I could get out. 
  So, I never park in the garage parking area.

Went to Khon Kaen immigration 23 Aug, 2016 to do my first Extension of Stay. Got there at 0800. Door opened at 0830 and I got my number. Number 5, that is.  Number called about 0840, sat down with immigration officer.  Had to fill out the new form about my social life and such. Only filled in a little bit and sign the form about overstay.  Immigration officer did his thing and at 0915 walked out with my one year extension of stay.  Oh yeah, he also stapled the receipt from the tm-30 and put the slip in as to when my 90 day report is due. I don't think it can get any better than that.  Every Time I have dealt with Khon Kaen, immigration they have been superb.

Legal stuff / Re: Office to change vehicle registration on Mittraphap?

Yes you must use the one out of town on the way to Udorn. It is about 8 km north of the ring road (230) on the northbound side.
 I just had to do this a couple of weeks ago. The one in town only does motorbikes.

U.S. Embassy Consular Outreach / Re: Cashless Outreach Pgm - US Embassy
« on: August 20, 2016, 06:09:58 AM »
I doubt any personal checks would be accepted at any U.S. Embassy function.
 Just like going to a Thai Embassy or consulate in the U.S. They only accept money orders . No cash and no  credit/debit cards.
 I was once sent away at the Thai Consulate in Washington D.C. to go and find a bank to purchase a money order so my wife could pay for her new passport.

On the good side. Bangkok bank is real close to the Pullman, that being if the Outreach Program is held at the Pullman.

Just used this guy a week ago. He is still around and did great work!  Had 2 units cleaned and serviced.Both needed freon, so it was a little extra. 1000 baht total for both.
 I would use them again!

     fceligoj and Henry ,  thanks for the replies.  It's minor stuff, but I know it's there and that annoys me.

So, I am destined to get it fixed.

Where to find . . . / Auto Body Paint and Repair
« on: August 16, 2016, 07:24:58 AM »
I am looking for an Auto Body Shop to have some minor damage repaired on my Chevy Colorado.

The Chevrolet Dealer says they don't do any body shop repairs and that I need to find one on my own.

They don't recommend any either.  I guess in Thailand they call them "panel shops". But, I am not having much luck finding one.
If anyone could help me, I would appreciate it very much.

Thank  you.

Just so I don't forget anything. Do I need to  bring any paperwork in order to get an income affidavit?

I rent my house from the Khon Kaen city district attorney. I asked his wife, who handled the lease if she was going to fill out a TM30. She called her husband to find out what this form was all about. He told her to tell me not to worry about it. 
 Not sure if that gives me any worry or not.  When I went to immigration to get a residence thingy. TM 18. I showed them the lease agreement. They never asked for a TM30. This was just last week.
