After more than two decades in the corporate event industry, Michael Andersen found himself at a crossroads. Burnt out and yearning for a different way of life, he, along with his girlfriend and their faithful Pug, Bruce Lee, embarked on a daring journey.
They left behind their careers, and their possessions, and embraced the open road in an RV. Their once 1,500-square-foot condo in Asheville, NC, was swapped for the cozy 188-square-foot space of their RV, marking the beginning of a profound journey of self-discovery, reconnection, and newfound freedom.
Michael’s story is one of remarkable transformation, embracing minimalism, displaying incredible resilience, and relentlessly pursuing a more meaningful existence.
