Yep! I have decided not to pursue the CCNP. (I actually earned the CCNP and CCDP in 2001-02). I will instead start preparing for the CCIE Written and then the lab. There are some arguments as to why you should skip the CCNP, but I am skipping it simply to bypass the rehashing. I have a full lab setup, though not as fancy as most, but enough to get 85-90% of the topics done. I can rent rack time after that.
