Thanks Rex

FYI, the Outreach in KKC will be in July.  Exact date not given yet.
It looks like only one visit to Khon Kaen this year.

Depending upon what time of the month they come in July determines whether my financial letter will fall within the 6 month time frame. Who knows whether or not they would let me slide if the letter is a week or two more than 6 months, but if not, I guess my future foretells a trip to Udon in November.  Although it might be fun to go to Chiang Mai for a couple of days if I am feeling rich and can spare the time.

I wouldn't depend on them forgiving any days unless you can arrange it with them in advance.
Last year they came the day my extension expired.  I went straight from the Pullman to immigration, and was still under 3 hours home to home.

No, I got the letter and then went to immigration, where I used it for my new extension.

If last years outreach visit would have been even one day later I would have gone to Udon to get the letter.
