Hello BPL community..
I've been lurking on this site/forums for awhile and thought I would introduce myself, my name's Dan.. I am kinda new to backpacking, but grew up in Wyoming, boy scout, etc. and did alot of jeep camping when I lived in AZ. I recently moved back to Wyoming to recover from having a BK amputation of my left leg (long story). As I was relearning how to walk, I quickly got bored of walking around town and started hiking up in the mountains which I quickly fell in love with. This progressed last summer and over the winter I decided to start saving my meager salary to gear up for this year. I have quite a few trips planned for this summer with the biggest being to summit Cloud Peak, in the Bighorns. Might not be much for most people, but at this time last year I was struggling with walking half a mile.
I used to be a very avid biker and I'm hoping to do some Mountain Bike backpacking this summer aswell.
I still have alot of work to do on my gear and the list I put together was mostly for me to wrap my head around everything I'll need, plus working on weight. Any advice is appreciated. Lots of great advice and knowledgeable people here. I tend to be quiet on forums and just read/learn, but if anyone has any questions for me, feel free to ask.
Take care and hope to see ya on the trials!
