Ladies and gentlemen! I introduce to you, the epic masterpiece that is.... Blackbeard & Destroyer's 2012 Thru Hike... The Movie! Has taken me a while to put it together. But please, pour a beer, pull up a chair, sit back and drift off to the trail!

Well Done! Great footage, great music. Congratulations on both the trip & the collection of memories. My PCT trip begins in 2014 and I found this inspiring.

Thx for sharing.

I'll have to wait til after work to watch it all, but I'm stoked on it!

Whalen- not to thread jack, but I'm in the PNW as well, and also planning on PCT 2014. Maybe we will have to talk...

Great film (only got to 36 minutes due to work, ... need to catch up with it later). Looks like you hit the sweet spot with precipitation through most of the southern CA desert.

I just finished watching it, and I've gotta say nice job. Some great photos, I liked the mix of pictures and video. Thanks.

Neat stuff on 03/27/2013 11:21:41 MDT Print View

I've enjoyed the first 30 minutes - taking it in installments. However, the what look to be rattlesnake count is getting rather high in the first 600 miles!

A few looked rather large

Kurosawa cannot match the pathos... on 03/29/2013 10:54:31 MDT Print View

My favourite bit was the misery and despair when the Nutella froze.

I also think that at the end you should get, oh, a parade or something instead of a glorified fencepost!

Congratulations, and I enjoyed the video.

Great video! Watched it till the 1 hour mark, and will continue later. What I loved was the way the video really captured the way walks like this feel... without overdramatizing it and bringing out the humanness in yourselves and those you met. Makes me want to go for the PCT.

I'm curious how Destroyer got her name "Destroyer of Worlds". And what the story is behind "Blackbeard" (though you obviously have a black beard!).

"My favourite bit was the misery and despair when the Nutella froze."

That is the real reason why you must have a knife in the backcountry! When your Nutella freezes you carve it up and eat it like chocolate bars.

Seriously though great video, I watched the first half the skimmed the rest due to time constraints. Have to finish it later.

And yours is impeccable for those of us going stir-crazy in the months before hiking season. Great job and thanks for sharing!

Unfortunately there was a copyright dispute with one song, so Youtube blocked the sound to the whole thing. As it doesn't really work without the music and sound I took it down. I might put it up somewhere else if I can find somewhere that doesn't cost a fortune.
