ROAD TRIP The World is Better from the Bed of a Ford Ranger

Over the last two weeks or so, I have been bombing around Thailand, and I learned something. Thailand loves its pickup trucks, and of those trucks, the Ford Ranger is one if its favorites.

I also learned that bed of a Ford Ranger is the perfect place to sit if you really want to experience what this grand country has to offer.

With relaxed laws compared to the states, you can travel the majority of the country in the bed of a pickup truck, and it’s amazing.


The real joy of traveling around in the back of a truck is you get to see and experience so much more.

Thailand is a wealth of new sights, sounds and certainly smells, and all of those things are muted from the inside of the glass and metal cocoon of a truck cabin.

Out back the sky is open, the calls of the wildlife can easily reach your ears, and the delicious scent of food can reach you from every street vendor and restaurant you pass.

Tuk Tuks are cool, but my favorite journeys were driving through the town and surrounding area of Golden Triangle in the back of a Ranger.

If you ever find yourself on the other side of the world, and want to know how to get around, just find a Ranger, pay the driver a few bucks, and go for a great ride. I promise you’ll never regret it.
