I agree completely with your assessment of the Dakar today. Inspite of the corporate influence, the Dakar seems to still have its "Mojo". It is a monumental undertaking, no matter your funding source.
From a personal observation, I see that same thirst for adventure and challenge shown in the documentary within the commentary of this web-site. Seems that there are a significant number of us inmates with that same wonderlust for the unknown?? Some to a much greater degree than others.....
