Question Sludge on oil cap and dip stick - help

Okay I bought a 92 accord with 219K miles on it. I have had them before and they last for ever. The kid I got it from said he put about 70K on it and only changed the oil about 2 times. Go figure. The sludge is black and thick, not gray, or brown, shows no signs of water.

I called my mechanic friend who owns a Napa shop and he said not to worry about trying to clean it out of the engine, it is alreay in there, just change the oil.

Another mechanic friend told me the same thing - but I really feel the need to drop the pan, clean it out and change the oil.

Should I worry about it or just leave it?
