    It looks like I will have to find people to steal that motothome elsewhere 😂

    Well, we have a slogan here, "There's more than one way to skin a cat."

    If we cannot move it in one piece, perhaps we should render the vehicle into pieces. Or I can still steal it and find a cliff somewhere else in Brazil. Do you have a junkyard in your area with a "car crusher"?

    Besides, do I appear to you to make excuses just to look at girls at Carnival?

    We have a 24' motor home built from an E350 box truck.... very sturdy, 10-12MPG, lotsa battery capacity, solar charging, DC-to-Daylight radio comms, fridge/freezer, LP stove/oven, head, separate shower, comfy bed, all that stuff.

    In winter, we fill leave plenty of RV antifreeze in the fresh water tank in case we need to use the head and we remove any canned goods we don't want to freeze, but leave them in totes near the back door for easy deployment.

    In warmer months, it's ready to roll in minutes.

    Also, the city has no law about abandoned vehicles ( it has been sitting there collecting dust and the grass is growing around it). He can leave it in front of his house, but he won't.
    Did you try giving the cop a pan of brownies and a twenty dollar bill? It can work wonders in Mexico. Its close to Christmas ya know

    This "Brazil project" is getting more an more complicated.

    I have to smuggle a candy machine into the country. Then I have to find a way to get rolls of quarter into the country so they cn get the candy out of the machine. I think my best bet is to just hot-wire the truck and drive to Carnival and abandon it. I intended to take the truck and dump it in the Amazon River, but I'm scared to death of candiru fish. Then I have to get out of the country, but I figure with my luck I'll be ejected and banned for life.

    Oh, I forgot. I also have to smuggle a bag of Idaho's best potatoes into Brazil and Ronco dicer. All of this has to be done without a knife, because Yavanna warned me they confiscate all incoming cutlery. Oy, vey, I haven't been without a knife since 1958.

    I know we're supposed to help new members and ensure that we care about their needs. I'm beginning to think I'll wind up in a Brazilian jail...

    @The Tourist , you will be one of the very few foreigners to be deported upon arrival at the airport.

    Hmmm, Yavanna, I see that despite being separated by a huge continent and an ocean, you have learned my style...

    I will second the thought that everyone should at least consider getting a camping trailer. We have owned several thru the years, used and new. We currently have a 20' something bunkhouse that my daughter is temporarily staying in and I have a small pick up camper for my get a way's. Having a camper is a piece of mind. Used ones are cheap. If you take care of them they take care of you. Excellent bug out house.

    Yeah... 4x4 would really round it out nicely
