I will be around, but no guarantees exactly when & where I will be, as delivering / distributing the new map as quickly as possible will be the top priority. However, keep in touch & we should be able to meet up somewhere.

Hi David,

Happy it progresses, two issues:

-Even if the name of the post is clear Golden Triangle Maps, I dare to ask, would you have maps of Hua Hin/Cha Am suroundings and a map of Bangkok, I mean for riders. It's a llways a problem to get out from the center of Bangkok as we are not allowed to ride on Highways, expressways and most of bridges (I am preparing a post about it).

-Do you plan to change it under GPS format (for instance GARMIN format) ?

Anyway, tell me when it will be ready as well.

Great work, Courage !

Sorry but I don't have any intention of doing or including a Chiang Mai city map in any book or on any guide map. You could never keep it up to date, plus there are more free monthly Chiang Mai city maps than you can poke a stick at - they practically litter the town. So IMHO it would be a total waste of time & effort to do one.
