    Hi Guys,

    We are all getting pretty excited about our pending Laos trip.

    Day 1:- Loei to Pak Lai / Blue and red line
    Day 2:- Pak Lai to Sayabouri via the National Protected area / Light blue
    Day 3:- Sayabouri >> HongSa

    Looks like a very carefully planned route. Wishing you a great trip and looking forward to hearing how it goes.

    Hi Brian - I live in Luang Prabang - if you pm me before you arrive we can have a beer and chat. I did the Hongsa-LP bit a couple of weeks ago - the rainy season has made the first part 'interesting' - you will have to slow down on some bits - there is a bit of rain here at the moment - if it rains in the hills there be careful as some of the track is clay and gets very slippy when wet. Not sure if you have done that bit before but if you are arriving from Sayabury you don’t need to go into Hongsa for the LP road - you need to turn off right a few kilometres short - good luck and keep us posted.

    Hi Rreznik,
    Can't see an option to PM you when I click on your name.
    Not sure of the time it will take from Sayabouri to LP via HongSa.. We plan to leave early and hope to be in LP by mid afternoon with some drinks at the wine bar and beers by the Mekong shortly after.

    Can you PM me your mobile number and I will give you a call.

    I've followed your trip reports for some time; always well planned & rewarding to riders & readers alike. this looks like being yet another 'ripper'.
    Do the audio tour in Vieng Xay - sensational & most informative.

    Does this forum have PM's ? - if so maybe I cant pm because I have less than 5 posts? - my Laos number is 55172764 - the road from Saya to Hongsa is a good tarmac one and I think is around 80Km's before the turn off to LP - will take around 1.5 hrs depending on your speed - from there its all dirt road and I would suggest around 3 - 3.5 hours for that stretch - good luck.
