I'm not sure what I'd do. What would you do?

Absolutely not. This is likely my one and only time to experience the personal challenge of Dakar. We're here for entirely different reasons. My personal journey trumps his job.



Unless, they are willing to pay for the whole package and time off from work for 2014. And I get an RV of my own. ANd they fly the whole F5 team out. And cater to their every whim.

If Team F5 ever makes it to the actual Dakar grounds like that, there'd be a TSC sing along around the campfire every night!
