The travel day arrives and so does packing the truck with everything we think we may need on the run. The entire day was spent looking out the window, adjusting our positions in the back seat and well more looking out the window. It is amazing how much the road has changed in the two years since we were on Hwy 7. What was once a smooth and well maintained road is now more filled with crater size holes and entire sections missing blacktop. It makes you wonder how the rest of the 'new' roads will fair the rainy seasons...after 9 hours on the road we arrive at the guest house in Ban Lung. We start unloading the truck and Mombo heads to the kitchen to cook dinner, a routine we are sure to perfect over the coming days. It has been a long day and the run starts in the morning so it is off to bed for everyone.....
