The crew (below, from 2014, after the "Walk The Plank" obstacle) is undecided. But I'm sure when we get those e-mails from Mudder a few months before race-day with discounted entry fees, that itch might come around again.

JB: Thanks so much for walking us through this. Anything you'd like to add before we wrap this up?
