Stuck in Luang Namtha, Laos - Anyone Want a Beer?

Hi

While waiting for a part to arrive I will be partaking of a few s.

If anyone is interested and going past, please drop in.

I am staying at the Dokchampa Hotel, but do my drinking next door at the Forest Retreat.

It is nice to break down in a cheap country, but then shipping here is a tad harder to even that up

Cheers
TravellingStrom

A beautiful place to get stranded - enjoy your break!

Better than waiting for parts in Viang Veng i guess - this would cause soo much headache
Enjoy Laos - hope you find some people to

Hi m8

If they are the people in the BIG trucks, then yes I met them in Ulan Batar and also the swiss couple again right here, but they know nothing about HU, but may do after I told them

I also met a couple of chaps in a LC who also came down through China with them, they have al gone now

Cheers for the ideas though, assuming I picked the right ones ?

G'day m8, ow ya goin?

I am waiting on a starter solenoid Assy, I have two coming in from two different locations, one was totally free, from the VSRI forum, the other was expensive from the local Suzuki dealer. Average cost is good

I have been involved in solving the bike issue, ordering parts from many sources, at different times of the day and night, then cancelling the ones I know won't reach me in time.

During this same period I suffered a local wog that was going around, and spend over a day on the dunny, both ends, but not quite at the same time, lucky for the cleaner So, now I wait for Monday arvo my time, and the first supposed delivery time of a part, which may allow me to keep moving.

I have become a bit blase and lazy during this time, and as I have a Kindle and love reading, plus had no bike, I did bugger all

I should start moving again in about 2 days, around the 13th, and I hope to be home maybe late January, after the HU meeting in Chiang Mai, Thailand which is on 11th Jan, 2013

Cheers
