R I P DAVID.
Your "online" guiding on my Laos trips filled a lot of gaps. Thank you.

Life is never perfect all the time & it is not always a happy ending.
But David had an adventurous life, made his mark, always helped his friends & contributed to the biking community in North Thailand.
His Ban Sakuna resort in Chiang Khong was the culmination of a full life & his dreams.
May he R I P.

Our sincere condolences to his wife Mai & family.
