I like this version better:
There are so many singletracks here in Laos. It would take a lifetime to explore them all
What about air quality? Big topic out there these days.
Man I can feel that exploration. Im feeling just like when I played TES Oblivion as a kid
Curious about that as well. When I lived in China I took up smoking to filter out the coal smog.
I also live in China and I am wary for breathing anything I cannot see, if it is clear it is probably some real ultra-dangerous toxin.
Another thing, all those wind turbines around Beijing, I have a theory, they are not turbines but in reality huge fans, they blow the smog away during visiting dignitaries visits. This place is the only place I know that closes the factory’s during these high profile visits to improve the air quality.
It is so bad that a lot of tourists are leaving and not coming back.
I had never heard of Lorde....thanks Ed!
I hope everyone saw the video series on my FB page on crashing a wedding in Laos.
If not, here is part 3 in the series.
Coming up, a video on "how to crash a funeral"
We've been too busy wondering if you were captive in a communist country.
Hanging out with the people of Ban Nambout
I am amazed it shows up on Google Maps
But Google doesn't show any roads to it
I will post a video next week of the road leading into Ban Nambout - on FB
Yesterday it was a wedding. Today I was invited to a funeral.

The routes I have chosen to travel around Laos were not suggestions from anyone. I simply took all the maps I have of the country and plotted a course into the most remote and hard to reach places in the country. Some places I wasnt even sure I could make it in to. The maps often times didnt show a road going thru and my GPS was not much help either.
This story is an example of one such road.
On my maps and GPS, the road ended at a big lake. But there was another road that continued on the other side of the lake.
I summized there would be some sort of ferry or boat that could take me across to the other size. It was a gamble because it would take me 4 hours to reach the town shown on my map on the lake.
When I got to the "town", it turned out to be two little shacks and I didnt see any another person around.
My first thought was I was going to have to ride all the way back to the beginning and then all the way around the lake. That detour would have meant backtracking and another 7 hours of riding. And I didnt want to do that.
So I went into action to find a way across the lake.
I knocked on the door of one of the shacks. I opened the door and yelled inside....."HELLO!"
To my surprise, a woman answered. Ah there was someone here after all! She was just sleeping. I jestered to her that I wanted to get across the lake. And she pointed to a little boat on the other side of the lake. I started to yell over to the guy on the other side and after a few minutes, the guy with the boat was on his way over towards me.
The rest of the story and videos are posted on my FB page.
Yup, liking the videos on FB!
Google should buy you pay a 3D camera and pay you to map out those places?
What happens when you camp on someone's porch and they show up in the morning.
Video of the results posted to my FB page
Lalo, is there a reason you post your video on FB and not here?
I would love to see your video but I'm not going to FB. I tried Instagram.
Sure would be easier to just see them here.
I am not a facebook member and I can see his videos there just fine. I have to click through some garbage a bit though to get there. If you haven't tried it recently you might give it a shot.
Great videos on FB ! Nice to see you make do in any environment. Feeling good and staying healthy?
Not a fan of having to go to FB either. A ride report should be in ride reports, not just a teaser to go to another site.
