In the even you step on a mine the procedure is to throw yourself 30 feet in the air and spread yourself over a wide area! :p

The sign says "Mines have been cleared for 2mtrs either side of the road", "but if you want a pee, do it in the road" :lol: :lol: :lol:

Rough translation:
"Don't go further! (or: don't leave the road) There is a great danger because of landmines"

Many such signs are now planted in Croatia and even more in Bosnia. And the danger is real, especially in less visited parts. The roads and most of the mountain paths are cleaned nowdays, fortunately.

If somebody is intending to visit these areas he can drop me a PM. I regularly visit remote areas of Croatia (2-3 times a year) and can suggest some nice spots for LandCruising, walking, climbing or just relaxing on the less known Adriatic sea beaches. :greetings-wavingyellow:

Here are two sets of photos of LandCruising there last year: Island Krk and Central Velebit.

It's a beautiful country, I've been there three times now, lovely pics, I drove through that tunnel in the rock in one of your pics

at one point we were driving along a track when we saw some soldiers mine clearing, when they found one they placed four stakes with ribbon around the spot, we pulled up to watch I glanced down and beside the Cruiser were four stakes with ribbon, if I had stepped out I would have trod on it, that was about 1 ft from the edge of the track I was so surprised :o I didn't think to take a picture of it I just got outa there quick, so it is important to take notice of those signs.

It's parked about 500 m above sea level, an hour and a half drive on something that cannot be called a road from the sea shore. :shock:
If it isn't made of plastic I would suspect it's a lifeboat from an Arc that survived the Great Flood. :)
