    Could you post links to the vids in this RR or embed them? I (and lots of others) don’t Facebook and don’t want to miss out.

    Consider I am on vacation from work, advrider, everything. I will get back to my regular updates when I back Stateside. Lots of Baja to report on. But first, I am focused on the present moment......Laos

    The roads on my GPS showed that this amazingly remote dirt road didn't go through. But I figured there had to be a way.
    Turning back meant 4 more hours heading back the way I came.
    But there was a way through.
    And it was quite the Edventure

    Heading north in Laos all the way to the Chinese border. Maybe they will let me sneak in for a beer.

    A good beer is probably hard to find. How much rain have you hit? The luggage looks dialed in!
