The original plan all turned to shite, got too hard, plus a lot of other excuses, but we're coming back anyway. A definite 3 of us fly in on the 19th, spend a day getting the KLX's sorted then take of for 12 days on the 21st heading north towards Mae Sai, through Fang via the back roads, dirt roads 4WD tracks etc. Was hoping David's GPS maps were going to be available, but will settle on his paper maps & the Rottweiler GPS maps instead. (Are the Rottweiler any good?) Once we get to Mae Sai, it'll be a day in Myanmar, cross into Laos for a look (is the Casino ready yet?) & do a bit of back road exploring around the Golden Triangle area. After that, depending on time left, we'll work our way back to Chiang Mai again via any out of the way roads we can find. The real purpose of this post is to see if anyone would like to join us for any part of the trip? Once I get a route planned, I'll post it up for suggestions, ideas & a basic overview of our itinerary. Someone must have some areas they've wanted to explore? We'll do it with you. Remote, tricky, challenging trails don't phase us. Cheers.
