    Break through Pa Co to Hang Kia and then to Mai Chau.
    2 days ride with 1 night in the boonies. Honda XR250
    Friend of mine once told me there is a way to break through Pa Co to Mai Chau.
    "Just head to the south" - he told me.
    So I took the chance.
    Frankly it was a nice dirt ride except my fall from IFV (that's how I call my bike) on very narrow and steep trail.
    I saw a few very nice child faces and probably they never seen a white guy before. all people were very friendly and offered help at any chance.
    One thing I have to mention. Then I asked two local guys about distance to Mai Chau they told me it's 5 km but actually it was about 25. Funny! They never saw map :)
    I didn't acomplish my mission. I didn't reach Mai Cau cause the trail became too dangerous: narrow and steep with big stones.
    Since I ride alone without a partner I hit the backtrack but I still think it is possible to break through with help of friend hand.
