He was inspired by the Netflix film "Minimalism."

Awesome article!  I didn't see his blog name listed in the write-up, so I went looking.  He's on Twitter, and lists his blog as http://www.manvandogblog.com/  Doesn't have content yet, but I'll be bookmarking it to check up on his travels.

I love all of these amazing athletes who live minimal and explore the world (like the baseball player who surfs and lives in his van).

I'm excited for this as well.  Thanks for the investigative work @Trede I've bookmarked his blog and am looking forward to voraciously consuming it.

That is a bad-ass van, a bad-ass man, a bad-ass dog.
