    Namheung check point is 65k of Paklai. the trail is wide and interseting and very very dusty due to tenths of big lorries with trailers going to Thailand.
    At customs and immigration you have to struggle with the lorry drivers to get to the booths. It takes about 45min to get through the border. Much quicker and better organised on the Thai side.
    PS: David, thanks for your very good map of Laos. I wish the north should have the same scale as your Mae Hong Son loop.
    I'm presently preparing my new trip next November and will ask more questions later on.
    Sok dee with Beer Lao!

    Hi David,
    I beat you by far sice I'llbe 69 next March
    I think we'have met at Roger's place in Khun yuam.I used your first pocket edition to come from Mae chaem in a 4X4 caribean.That was in
    90 if my memory's still good.
    I spend several months in CNX every winter so we might have a Singh
    in NOV. OK?

    As next NOV i don't want to take the same disapointing route from LPQ
    back to CNX,I will happily ride again on the beautiful 13 and 50 Km
    south of Vang Vieng turn W to Fueang, the Mekong,Xanamkhan and Paklay
    and again exit at Namheung.
    Any info is welcomed.Where is the ferry?
    I have already stayed overnight in a private house in Xanamkhan and remember a good and friendly restaurant by the Mekong,but that was in 96 and "riding" a big barge from LPQ down to VTE!
