HE has said that the border problem is resolved so the border should be open. However, as long as the question of the road along the border is not resolved, it could happen again anytime. IMO.
If you are planning to go soon, PM me and I can ask people up that way if they have info. Problem is that they will probably say "No problem" whatever the situation since they are selling tickets to Laos.

Thank you buddy, if we head that way I will pm you much appreciated, our other option is to fly to bkk and then to Vientiane, or something similar, see one part of Laos, whichever that is. Thanks for the help

I don't think the border was closed at any stage, they just shut one remote border crossing for a few days that only locals can use anyway. I agree that it's a bit unpredictable though.
Silence, exile, and cunning.
