    Thanks, it looks as if the original link was truncated in the cut and paste. I've corrected it, thanks for the alert.

    Thanks, Marco. I think I did not pass your place - I came down to Yasothon from Mukdahan and picked up 23 at Yaso - I then went the other direction, west/northwest, toward Roi Et and Mahasarakham.

    But I'll know what to look for next time I'm over that way. It's a beautiful area of Thailand.

    I particularly enjoyed the run from Khong Chiam up to Khemarat, a place I'd like to go back to... The road surface on that section is the worst I saw on this trip, but the country is wild and beautiful and isolated. I'm just glad my flat tire was not there...

    Roads in some parts here really suck as they are full of potholes and not smooth at all.
