RVing to Rio De Janeiro -- is this even possible?
We are experienced RVers, with nearly a decade of fulltime North American trekking under our belts. Closing ceremony of the Olympics got us talking about 2016 in Rio, then somebody said, "Why don't you take your RV down there?"

So... could we? Is there a highway route from the US to Brazil that is safe, sound and practical for towing a big 5th Wheel? Any particular challenges in crossing through the various countries along the way? We can boondock (camp totally self contained), but prefer parks and hookups if they are available. Might they be?
Assume time is not an issue -- we could take a year or more to get there if we wanted. Budget is also not a first level concern -- the resources are there for a grand adventure. And realize this really isn't about the best way to see the 2016 Games. It's about the journey. Are we crazy to even consider a trip like this?
