What time of year is best to hike the trail? I have done long distant hikes here in the US and it revolves around timing due to weather and many other factors, I'm ready to hike this trail but can't seem to find any good readings on it! Thanks for your help

Hello all I will travel by myself on my touring bike from the beginning of April for about 5 weeks, start in Hanoi to HCM. I"m looking for GPS file of the best recommended route via HCM highway and rural roads. Dave, i believe you have done it before, how can i download all your itinerary in one PDF file. Can somebody recommend what should be the tier width, should be anything between 1.5" to 2.0" . Can somebody recommend on web site or blog where i can find similar previous tour itinerary it will be very helpful. Cheers Ishay
