Self-MOC Vacation: Gentleman Scarecrow's Peru Journal
Everyone needs a vacation, even your self-MOC! Here is a MOCs-eye view of Peru for you to peruse. Also introducing: "Hobo Joe". BTW these are all legit photos, no photo tricks.
About this creation

Ahh, a vacation worthy of a MOC of my refinement! Historic colonial Lima! Talk about culture!

G.S.: What are you doing there, Nathan?

Hmmm...is that a diary?

Nathan: Journal! Mind your manners!

Allow me to collect myself...

Hail to the conqueror!

I'm helping guard the presidential palace!

Art is relaxing...

Cheese!

When is our next bus?

I can't figure this out!

Ahhh, Cabanaconde!

in the world's deepest canyon... Home of the...

Wait, who is this uncouth wanderer poisoning my panoramic views?

HJ: Whadja say there, sonny? The name's Hobo Joe, FYI! Hey, did someone here order a waiter? Hey waiter, do you have any Grey Poupon!

GS: I have come here to see the Andean Condor, not to be insulted by an unrefined ruffian like you!
HJ: Condor, eh? Then why are you dressed like a penguin? Hyuk, hyuk!

GS: Oh My! That is a big bird! The wingspan is almost four meters wide!

HJ: Better watch yourself, fancy pants! You're so pale and scrawny, that buzzard might think you've already kicked the bucket! Hooo Hoooo!

GS: I didn't come on vacation to be insulted by the likes of you, Hobo Joe!
HJ: Well, good riddance! Hey Buzzard! Here's a varmint for you!

Condor: *not enough meat on that one*

At last, Inca Ruins!

The Inca fortress of Sacsayhuaman! Careful how you pronounce that.

Llamas!

And Alpacas!!

Llama, llama, llama...

I am awestruck by their gentle beauty!

Baby!

That's close enough!

Nathan has brought me to Machu Picchu! Oh, thank you Nathan

That's not funny, Nathan!!!

Ahhh, to be in the clouds!

Finally, the serenity I have sought!

HJ: Howdy, Stranger! A very strange stranger, I might add!

GS: Why, oh why, must you torment me??
HJ: It's fun and easy to do! Oh, go ahead and look around! You've come this far, after all.

That's a long way down.

At long last, Machu Picchu! The lost city of the Incas!

Inca ruins atop Huayna Picchu. This is cultural heaven!!

Here it is! The world-renowned Machu Picchu!

It's spectacular!

Hrumphh! Okay, just one photo. Done? Okay, Sayonara.

And now I shall show you around.

There's this...

and that...

and the other...

and it's been here for around six hundred years,

and was lost to knowledge for about five hundred of those...

and no one knows for sure what it was for...

...although many believe it was a vacation home for the king...

A vacation spot fit for a king! I can believe that! Adios, Amigos!!


Fourth Wall Commentary: Most of us have seen postcard pictures of places like this. I thought by bringing Gentleman Scarecrow into the pictures, it might make people do a double-take. Hobo Joe is my self-MOC's alter-ego and new arch-nemesis. Stay tuned for an epic karate battle between these foes in none other than Machu Picchu! BTW, there was a huge group of Japanese tourists who took a great interest in GS. They were taking photos of us while we were photographing him. Anyhoo, let me know if you enjoy this sort of page. Ciao!!

Wow! Looks like you had a wonderful vacation. Hobo joe is awesome, and I love his pipe! Btw, I pass an Alpaca farm every day on my way to and from school, and I see alpacas every day. They are so cute!

4/5 because that was somewhat dangerous for the mocs as well as yourself, and because the farthest from Kansas I've been is California :(.

Nice to see you had a great time man, and that was a brilliant and invontive way to introduce a new character. It gives him background and really adds personality to him. I quite like HJ and can't wait to see him in future. Hopefully he won't cause GS too much trouble, nut then again hopefully he will *chuckle*

There's many things I wanted to say throughout the post, but I forgotten most of them by the end, so I'll just say two: what a wonderful vacation and way to give life to your characters :)

I've never really noticed how cartoonish your self moc is! You really know how to give him character. All you would need to do is stick him in a computer and you got yourself a full fledged cartoon character. And I enjoy your sense of humor! I also have a friend from Peru, so thats also pretty cool!

Extremely well written and documented; your sharp and witty narration was really enjoyable! Looks like an awesome trip, and-- this being the first time I've come across your self-MOC-- I gotta give you props for such a cool, original figure! Good stuff!

Quoting StoveTop Creator Great travelog! Thanks for sharing it with us! Condor shots... wow! Perhaps a certain someone on this site might be inspired to build a condor? Love the character of the hobo! Hope you learned all kinds of good stuff from your experience! :)
Hmmmm..Condor? Hmmmmm. Oh, and thanks!

Quoting Patrick Mont I hope you enjoy Peru. Be careful when you cross the streets in Lima though.
No kidding!! The whole country feels like a non-stop taxi death-race! We're back in Chicago now where the traffic seems safe and calm.

I look at this page just once, and now every MOCpages add is about travel and Macchu Pichu, specifically. The internet is weird.

That photos of you just holding his foot makes me cringe. No joke, as I was sitting here at the computer I had a legit shiver run up my spine. Love Hobo Joe! Hope you had a great vacation!

Quoting L.A. Miranda HJ seems to be awesome! I honestly don't like very much Peru, even the Machu Pichu is beautiful, I really don't care very much about it, so I'm not going to say anything about your vacations (except I hope you have fun). I only want to ask two things: 1.- GS has a new tophat and bowtie, right? 2.- Are you mad!? What would happen if the pin of GS' foot was loose and the GS explored the mountain going down? D= (Now trolling time: when you smashed GS, he was on the opposite side when he asked about your journal 8D)
Good catch! He is sporting a new top hat. You're right about the smash photo. I misplaced the photo where he's spying. Found it ! Fixed it!

Wow that looks amazing! It would have been awful if the ball joint in http://www.mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=341449&id=/user_images/57653/1348148282m was an old one.

Quoting Gale Winthrope Now, THAT was a trip. Great memories for you huh? Thanks for sharing this with us. On a side note, standing amid the clouds is quite the experience isn't it? Just be wary not to find yourself amid a rain cloud! I've done that before XD
Yup. It was a good trip!
