I've taken the same approach a couple of times at different addresses
with 192.168.address.0/24.  I also have a VPN going with my brother.
Sadly, his employer requires security software that requires he use
192.168.1.0/24 for his home network to be able to VPN in to work.  As
a workaround, I've sometimes subnetted a hotel 192.168.1.0/24 hotel
address, claiming 192.168.1.2 and using netmask 192.168.1.252, so that
when I VPN all but the first few addresses of my brother's network are
visible.

Cheers,
