In spitting rain I continued West, towards the Laos border where I was chased around by two huge dogs. Then I headed back to Khe Sanh to take tourist photos of memorials.
Oh, how does one ever forget hwy 9 aka "bloody route 9". Thanks for mention of Camp Carroll which we referred to as "Charlie Charlie". West through the Rock Pile to Khe Sanh, points west and south all serious Indian country. To me it's Hallowed ground.
I signed up...Good RR
