Success! Crossing the Laos Border by Motorcycle.

Nam Tha, Northern Laos.

Depsite the protests and whining of the Chinese border guards, I was able to bring the motorcycle out of China and into Laos without a problem. On the Laos side, they didn't seem to care about the motorcycle and didn't feel the need to fill out any kind of paperwork. On the China side, they only charged me about USD $1.

So far, Laos is a laid-back, and very beautiful place. I plan to write more and put up photos - but in the meantime, check out my HELMET CAM video. I made my own helmet camera mount - seems to be working well so far. I plan on staying in this town for a couple of days and seeing the country side before heading south to Luang Phrabang.

Chris! You are a madman! The helmet cam is a pure stroke of genius. I was even nervous riding along with you. How long will you be in Laos? What are you eating there?
