RE: BGS/BRIXMIS ??
BGS = Bundesgrenzschuetz or Border Patrol

Excellent captions and photos Rancher. I would love to have a beer with you some time so I could hear some of these stories.
I have played along sections of the old border in Northern Bavaria near Wurzbach. This is one of the best ways to offroad and avoid the authorities in this part of Germany.
All of the old border tracks we have driven on were lined with two equidistant 1m wide concrete pads. They prefabricated them with perforations to lower costs/weight and then laid these pads for miles so that the border patrols could drive on them. I've always wondered if it is like this along the whole border or just in certain areas?
Keep the photos coming.
