The rocks looked a lot smaller from the comfort of the boat.
Aw right boys, No whinging about rocky river fords and wet boots here!
After all you did not have one of these pointed at you...

Thx for survival trail pics.
A really good trip report on that Ban La Hap route was done by Mat.Ward on the other CM forum back in April 2007. The report was titled A 2000km Loop Through Southern Laos
It was his gps track that I followed when I went through in 2009. Still a challenging ride though, even with getting lost taken out of the equation.
