I'm in the states, planning a trip. How can I order Laos maps from GTR? Thanks, Sandra 46
I noticed that on the home page there is info on maps.
Have cut and pasted the text below. Hope this helps...

Thanks SuziQ, I did see this information but since some items in the package are out of print, could someone please tell me if I can order the Laos map only, how much, how to place the order? Thanks again, Sandra46
Click on my user name and send me an email with your address. I will see that you get a copy of David's latest Laos Map.
Sent you an email a coulpe of days ago.
But maybe silverhawk has a better deal going.
Not really, I still have to buy it from you.. I said I would see she received one, I didn't say from who
how accurate is this book : A Motorcycle Guide to the Golden Triangle, since it was printed 8 years ago? is it still realible?
The book is still pretty accurate. Also there is still nothing to compare it with for bikers.
The road kms, travel times & loop options are all still basically the same.
Some of the road descriptions maybe a little out of date.
A lot of the restaurants, guesthouses have changed, but for hard core road info (what bikers want) the book is still right & it works well when you are out on the road.
The current issue covers The Golden Triangle / Laos border area of North Thailand. It has no Mae Hong Son Loop or Laos info in it, but the planned update (2nd half of 2008) will have it "all."
