I prefer the independent visa runs vs. the Visa run packages..my last was to KL for a few days and went smooth enough.
Easy, from udon airport take the 40 minute minibus "limousine" (lol) to friendship bridge. Cross thai immigration, take a very full public bus over the bridge for 20 baht. Once there apply for lao visa on arrival ($35 in actual dollars or you'll get ripped off if you pay in baht). THen go through lao immigration and find some people to share a tuktuk with to the downtown area.
Once there find a guesthouse/hotel and come drink a beer (or 2 or 5) in Bor pen Nyang
(Oh and if you want a double entry Tourist visa go to the embassy at exactly 8:00 AM the next morning)
