If you travel with the best of all wives...better loose your wallet discretely.
Once upon the time I wished I would have lost my wallet in Buenos Aires Argentina...It would have been easier to travel without wallet then with a blocked credit card.
Crossing Argentina during 4 days with 15$ and 4 persons was tough.
Not until Chile where we were able to get cash again.
Anyway my wife forgot that infamous leather jacket in the Santiago hotel. payed the UPS parcel, custom fees and the jacket always got stolen in Costarrican customs....

8 weeks 12.000km Oregon - Alaska - Oregon, Engine broke free at 21.000km now in CR 37.000km and counting.
With a DIY foam air filter the rig runs well even in tropical rain. The air box looks then like an aquarium.
Final drives: 1. at 5000km, 2. at 34.000km(+friction plates)
