In order to show the entire PCT journey, Andy explains that the video is actually a combination of two separate hikes. The first 2,424 miles were hiked in 2013, until an unexpected snow storm made it impossible to continue the trail on foot. Instead of quitting, Andy found a road detour that would get him to Canada, still hiking the whole way. He also took selfies on this part of the hike, but decided to keep the video focused on the PCT. In 2014, Andy returned to the PCT and picked up from mile 2,424 all the way to the end of the trail at mile 2,660.
