sorry for the large number of questions today, but i rarely have time to get on this wonderful and informative site and tend to store up questions. i heard the term ผีปิกกะโล่ง or at least that is how it sounded to me, the spelling may be completely wrong. i thought i was familiar with most of the various "haints" and spirits but this is a new one on me. any ideas? thanks.

What might surprise you is that lots of people in other parts of the country don't have any idea about this spirit at all.

นอกจากผีที่กล่าวมาแล้วนี้ มักจะมีเรื่องเล่าเกี่ยวกับผีอีกพวกหนึ่ง ผีพวกนี้เป็นผีเร่ร่อน มีชื่อและรูปร่างต่างๆ ได้แก่ ผีกองกอย ผีม้าบ้อง และผีปกกะโหล้ง เป็นต้น ... ail09.html

yes, pirin you are very perceptive. I live in lampang and only local people seem to know about this. thank you for your help.
