Anyone else? I guess you could rustle the odd one or two up, but all that takes time. If I'm lucky I might find a Vespa at the right price

Mine just got compressed... time that is. It looks like I'm back into Laos next week.

I've been to Hongsa in Laos twice and this would be the third time. There's three villages there that we are looking to get aid to. Two of them are only reachable by boat. 800 people all up. Very poor people. Clothes and blankets, basic stuff. Looks like we've got about $8k so far... $10 a person, but that's a start. We think we'll be taking two ute loads of stuff, I'll go on the Super Enduro if I can or drive a ute if I have to ship it beforehand.

Meanwhile... I've still got bikes (and me) to get home.... and after an "insufficient funds" message at the bank, I've been enjoying the vagaries of international transfers.....

Another update to follow in a day or two. There's lots to catch up on.
A man should only do the work that is required of him. To do more is a form of greed.
