The 3rd edition of the Mae Hong Son Loop map should be out on sale in Chiang Mai on December 27, all being well. This one is laminated plastic - water & semi-tear proof. Selling price will the same at 175 baht. The new map has a few hundred kms of new dirt trails surveyed by the GT Rider & many of which have been reported on this board. (So now you can really find them.) The Pai city & environs maps have heaps of new guesthouses / resorts / restaurants / bars. Mae Hong Son has not changed a lot. Mae Sarieng has changed quite a bit. AND there's a totally new city map - for Mae Chaem "mega-tropalis" (as ol Paulo used to say in Nan.) Check it out soon. You wont be disapointed at all with the dirt trails I can assure you, many of these have not appeared on any maps before. Now if only VTR2 man would make a contribution & report some of the trails that he's been doing with his off-road tours we'd be a bit happier sharing the info. Merry Xmas is just around the corner. Cheers to all you happy go lucky GT Riders.
