Cycling north western Thailand and Myanmar

Hey folks
I'm in chiang mai at the moment. Here for a couple of days waiting for my Myanmar visa. Planning on cycling up to pai, then onto mae Hong son after that then down south to mae sot to cross into Myanmar. I'm thinking to get to mae sot will take about 2 weeks depending on breaks although I haven't accurately broken down the trip, and there are some hey mountains and inclines in the way.
Looking for an awesome travelling companion to share the (metaphorical) load, share the experience, and keep me company.
I'm hoping to stay in temples, there's possibilitues of some illegal camping, or sharing the costs of guesthouses as well if nothing else works out.
About me, I'm irish. Have been living in Vietnam for 9 years and am now heading home by bicycle, as you do! :D
Let me know if you're awesome and wanna join! :)

try to make it to Pu Chi Fah if you have the time. Even though its a bit out of the way, its worth it. Either way, best of luck on your travels!

Hey man!

Hey man!

I'm in Yangon, Burma right now heading to Europe. I expect to cross Indian border at the end of february, if I can finally manage to get the permit, since I'm having some trouble.

When do you intend to cross indian border?

Cheers!
Victor

Hey folks still making my way

Hey folks still making my way through north west Thailand so Myanmar is pretty much not being thought about much yet but thanks for the advice Neill. As for crossing into India, no idea I'm afraid man. Still have to get to yangon to get the visa and permit.
I am considering bussing through the middle of Myanmar for a couple of reasons, but mostly cause I've been told is flat and rather dull with lots of traffic??? Would you guys agree? Maybe I'd be better off spending more time in the north??
