    I'm faster than Chris Hoy

    I got back yesterday.

    Hoy, 32, and his girlfriend, Sarra Kemp, were able to fly out of the country thanks to the help of a long-time sponsor, DHL, the parcel delivery company. His agent, Ricky Cowan, told thescotsman.com that Hoy and Kemp were able to leave the airport in Bangkok with DHL's help. "They had a problem, but the guy from DHL got them on to a flight out of Phuket. They're in Singapore now." (SW)

    Yeah, DHL sucks. They usually don't put enough air holes in the box. Did you send yourself back via another international courier company?

    I wonder how accomodating the customs in Singapore were when he showed up on a cargo plane....


    -actually it doesn't say anything about a cargo plane, just using my imagination.

    If that's not fruity enough for you, there's bound to be something else out there.

    could have been worse. i was able to find a direct flight out. the other choice was a 26-30 hour drive down to phuket, and flying out of there.

    they already have been. total clusterf@ck.

    you check in at a hotel in BKK, then drive 1.5-2 hours south, then wait in traffic that's miles long, only to be one of hundreds who wait for the 1 xray machine to clear your luggage.

    Welcome back.
    We've arranged some nice weather for you so you don't miss Thailand too much. Rain, followed by wind, followed by little pellets like styrofoam hurled at you, followed by rain, some snow...
