Hey all, not sure if this is common practice on this board, but figured what the heck. Kniepisler here, been a lurker for years. I've been dropping knees for about 10 years now. Not an expert by any stretch, but can hold my own in most terrain. Primarily a downhill tele-guy, but have been gravitating towards XCD to mix it up and stay in shape. Unfortunately I'm anchored to Western New York so my choice in vertical is limited, but will drive out to the ADKs to explore some real backcountry. I'm a full-fledged gear head (in way too many hobbies) and have more gear than time to use it all, but that doesn't stop me from buying more lol...

Hoping to contribute to the depth of knowledge and skill here @ TT.

See ya on the boards and maybe even the trails...
