Good luck Rossguy. I'm excited for you and can't wait to hear about the event. It looks like the weather will be more favorable than last year, not that it will be easy.
What's the mileage? Between 8 and 9miles per lap? If you get a chance can you send a close up picture of the obstacle list. It will be fun for us former Mudders to look at and gauge what you're about to encounter.
