    :wink: All right, for those of you out there that had the stones :gdog to venture outside of your respectively comfortable countries of permanent residency..... Lets see your, most likely covertly shot, international border pics.

    Also, if you would be so kind, please enlighten us with the date, and location of pictured bureaucratic abortion.:bow

    This might help some people get an idea of why they need to be prepared for these nasties.

    note: That was in no way an ADVrider salute, just a standard fuck you to that border.

    If anyone knows where my pictures are please tell me, the US Border Patrol at Presidio, Texas made me do the "Gorrilla stomp" on my disposable camera about a month ago. Lost some Pictures of Creel and Copper Canyon, as I stomped on it, the flash went off, there may be some good shots of my boot as it descended on said Camera !!!!!:huh

    Do not take pictures too close to the Border, The Agents do not like to have their pictures taken. :eek1

    Here's one from last Spring. This is Rob crossing back into the US from Baja pushing an overheating bike. The border agents chased us down and asked us what the hell we were doing taking pictures. No border stomp, thankfully.

    this is the border fence between the United Arab Emirates and Oman. The actual crossing is a few miles to the right, which is just a big (miles long) gap in the fence. Go figure...

    How about a one-sided international border crossing? Only Canadian customs. No US agents to pass to get in... Hyder, AK...

    Can't get there from here, well at least not until 9:00am. They're not in too much of a hurry around here as border traffic is fairly light. That's Hammer, Head2Wind and I waiting in Midway B.C. for the border to open, August '07.

    This is a rare photo of me actually in a line at a border. Leaving Chile, headed North into Peru.

    While I was in line I saw this burned out bus.

    Take a look at the new curtains and re-upholstered seats. I think this old girl is back in service before they replaced the glass in the windows!

    This is crossing from Mpumalanga Province, South Africa into Swaziland in October of this year. It is already on the Swazi side of the crossing - one still has to buy road tax ticket in the little office in the background, in order to be let through by the Swazi customs guard. Somehow, the officer was not too happy...

    Return crossing from Swaziland to Kwazulu-Natal (x-Zulu Kingdom) in South Africa. Here we are waiting to get our paperwork in order.

    This is the pedestrian checkpoint.

    Automotive "search" zone. Although, there was no problem for bikes. Just gave them our customs forms and were waved through.
