    Hey David,

    your new map is great, the old one I lost so I cannot even compare and at the end I allways keep buying them no matter where I find them and what they cost, normally I look up the roads and then forget to take out the map again when on the road. That's why I allways end up somewhere else, which is sometimes great.

    Cheers Rudi

    Glad you like the new map. I think it is a real beauty.
    If you're still in Laos I will be in Vte on Wed (more than likely) & will be staying at the Ekalath Metropole.
    In LPQ now (monday) & heading for Vang Vieng tomorrow.

    I recently bought the previous one (mailed to Australia), is it much different?

    I am planning a ride through Loas in early 2010, should I upgrade my map?

    Cheers.

    There is a big difference in maps. The current edition came out in March 2009. The next edition should be early 2011.
