Did you ever run into any problems with the authorities? Did they ever try to take advantage of you as a tourist?
No, no problems with the authorities. I'd heard lots of stories about crooked cops but all the ones I met were nice. There were a lot of checkpoints in Thailand & the cops would be eyballing me as I approached but as soon as they say I was a whie guy they'd wave me on through. One even held up a line of trucks so I could go around them & take off. He gave me the universal 'give it throttle' sign.
