    Well, right, but I want them to show up in the middle of the post between text lines.

      (I did have to look twice when I first saw the German uniforms though - you had me confused for a moment....)
      One can buy them in Finland for a few bucks and they are quite durable - small wonder most bunker nuts and relic hunters wear them.

        You're right!

        Okay, try these ones, they show the coordinates of the "rainbow bunker" and the other one is 870m to the east and a bit to the north.

          Here are 2 links to the video a TV station made about this trip. The page contains full text of the interviews and background narration.

          http://www.tvc.ru/AllNews.aspx?id=08...ate=20.09.2010 - Russian

          http://translate.google.com/translat...9.2010&act=url - English. It is readable and understandable, albeit not without some funny parts.

          A note on Googl-ish: DOT is a bunker, so if you see "DOTham", "DOTa" and others, this is it. And where Alekseev says: "We Vandals" the translation should be "The vandals in our area/land"

          The bunker in this video is the first they worked on. I came when they were already finishing their work on the second one.
