    The biggest problem is to find the place, because all places about which was written in books are dug out a long time ago. Another problem are locals and land owners, they hate black diggers, because black diggers leave huge holes and all around are lying dug out shells and mortar mines, official ones usually don't have such problems. I know one incident when locals and loggers destroyed diggers car because some days before somebody stole fuel from logger's tractor. Another problem are hunters they don't like any people in forest, one time we had to use trenches as they were used in WW2 because hunters thought that we are wild boars, they were shooting on sound, it is forbidden, but they do it.

    P.S. And we also have some crazy diggers, forests are big and trenches and swamps are deep, they can just dig you in

    P.P.S. last was joke

    On 13th August on one of my tours we visited German War cemetery in Saldus (Frauenburg), under each cross are lying 8 Germans, many of them were dug out by us.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    You can find Soviet war cemeterys along many roads in Kurland, but this is one of the most beautiful.

    House was destroyed in war, but apple trees were left, apples were very tasty, good lunch for us, in war time that road connected two villages, now nobody even know about it.
