Houei Sai to Poung to Muang Meung & Xieng Dao via Nam You. Seems to me I saw a posting on this route some time ago. Have been searching for it, no joy. Last year I stopped at Poung and asked at the checkpoint (for bird flu?) about the road, was told it'd be about three hours, didn't have time, so continued on to Houei Sai. Want to go that way again one day. Anyone remember that older posting to GT? I've scrolled down through several pages and nothing caught my eye. Thanks. Mac, the 4-wheeler, with apologies...., and this forum is great, I do check daily for updates, have picked up a whole lot of useful info on travel in norther Laos here!
