    G'day All,

    Met Les up in Sangkhom and making our way to Chiang Khong.

    Sangkom and Banmairimkhong as lovely as ever..
    Can't get enough of those sunsets.

    Les arrived just before the afternoon storm.. Bangkok to Sangkhom and time for a beer.

    But first a stop over in Pua - Nan.

    Time for the remote Thai Lao border road and it is always a great ride.

    More twists and turns than a Thai Soap Opera.

    600 km and a great ride but ready for a good feed and beer that evening once we reached Pua.

    More to come.

    Nice photos Brian.

    Sitting by the Mekong at Banmairimkhong must be one of the sweetest places in Thailand to enjoy sunset beers.

    I think I rode that section of dirt a couple of years ago when I was lost. At the end of the dirt was this amazing brand new tar road, ...weird how they build these great roads to nowhere.
