(WPBN/NBC NEWSCHANNEL) A lot of people fantasize about selling everything they own and living a simpler life. One Canadian couple is making that dream a reality on the water.
Pierre Pépin and Jennifer Gosselin are in it for the long haul. The couple embarked on a thousand day journey about two months ago, and is making their way around northern Michigan.
The two planned for years, sold all their belongings, and set out on a thousand day trip, taking with them only what they can carry in their canoe.
"What you see is what you get," said Pépin. "We sold everything we own. We sold our house, car, truck, toys, tools; you name it: everything."
While the views are remarkable, the couple says the trip is more focused on the people they're meeting along the way.
