TFC Members - Please help Jon with any answers to the following questions:

1. Is there any way to get Fuel at Nan? Could PTT help us? This makes fueling in Laos unnecessary.
2. Can we exit Thailand from Nan?
3. Can we enter Thailand at Khon Kaen or Udorn? 
4. Does TFC have TPC maps of LAOS? (YES, we do - email TFC)
5. What Hotels do people suggest for Luang Prabang and Vientienne, Laos?
