Andy Breland from "Dead End Express" stars in the National Geographic Channel reality docu-series.

The go-to guy for the jobs that make other packers go pale, Andy Breland knows the wilderness of the Flathead National forest like the back of his hands, which are as tough as old leather. A grueling day in the saddle is his idea of a good time, and last year he slept 85 nights in the great outdoors. He's spent two decades working with pack horses, braving Montana's untamed trails to make his deliveries. Packing cargo must be in his blood — before taking the reigns of the ten horses and three mules in his pack string, he was hauling freight cross-country in his truck. But there's no more eighteen-wheelers now that he's steering 52 hooves up the mountainside.

His partner Chuck Allen usually leads the pack string, calling out the hazards before they hit, while Andy brings up the rear, keeping careful watch on the horses and their cargo. That means teamwork is their greatest ally — not only to complete the job, but to survive the journey.
