Apologies for the blatant plug, but………..the new GT Rider Laos guide map is out for all you Lao bikers & adventurers.

This 3rd edition of the Lao map is again laminated, & has 5 new "city" maps
1. Tha Khek
2. Savannakhet
3. Pakse
4. Xayaboury
5. Muang Ngoi Gao
Plus heaps more fine detail - many roads GPS-ed properly with scores of new correct village names & more accurate kms.
The map's also an extra 11 cms longer, to accommodate the new city maps, but still folds up to the same standard comfy size.

The next MHS loop map will be laminated. When that comes out depends on high season sales 2005/2006.
The earliest could be mid-late Jan if things go well, but I aint that optimistic right now.
How was the USofA, or are you still there?

I'm back. The US sucks! The shopping is good though. Picked up lots of goodies for the Suzuki, which I am presently installing. Got to get her ready for the New Years Lao run!

No maps for sale in Bkk because no distributor in Bkk.
Asia Books are only really interested in their own maps that they distribute. Also for me
the quantity that they sell is miniscule compared to what has been sold in North Thailand & Laos.
I’m sure it is not a problem for you to buy a Laos map in Vte as you go in, or a MHS map in Cnx, where you need it.

Hi David...
Is there any way I can get one of your fantastic laminated new-edition Laos maps sent out to me in NZ? My sister and I are pedal-biking from Vientiane to Luang Prabang next Feb..and being 'Psycho Planner Girl,' I'd love to have a wee study of the map before we head over..how do we sort bank accounts etc?
Chuck me an email when you get a chance.

Thank you!
Lexi

Yeah thanks, David, that's great. I've sent you an email in reply. And to Scott...let's lose the sheep references, mate!! You're just jealous you're not a New Zealander..haha. :) But thanks for the motivation...we know it's going to be mighty hard. Looking forward to putting up a trip report when we get back.

I bought a copy laswt week at Paxse Hotel...
The map had a 2005 date....as did all their other 12 copies of the map. Noted the same in Laung Prabang...

Are those maps with a 2005 date...actually the recent one mentioned in your post above..??

Curious...thanks.
