Raised alongside his sister in the capital city of the states, Andy attended John. F. Kennedy High School in his home town from which he matriculated in 1976. He later obtained knowledge in woodworking and became a skillful cabinet maker as well as a carpenter. After several years of traveling across the country, Andy landed in Alaska in 1980. The next two decades he spent serving as a riverboat captain, which provided the basis for his current net worth.
In the early 2000s, Bassich relocated to his hometown of Washington D.C. but soon after realized that he was not so eager for the city life, so he decided to return to Alaska. He settled down and found his serenity on the banks of the Yukon River, 14 miles from the city of Eagle, where he daily braves the rather harsh conditions of the polar climate, and generally hostile environment. Living quite a wild life, Andy is gathering wood as well as harvesting, hunting and gathering his own food, besides taking care of his pack of sled dogs, which currently numbers 37.
The wider audience gained the opportunity to catch a glimpse of Andy Bassich’s everyday life in 2013, when he became a regular crew member of the TV documentary show “Life Below Zero”. The series, which is airing on National Geographic Channel, pictures the daily struggles of a few inhabitants of secluded Alaskan territories, where even one mindless step can cost you your life. Andy has now been featured in 72 episodes of the series through its nine seasons, earning a lot of popularity and receiving audience support. This whole venture has helped Andy Bassich to dramatically increase the total size of his net worth, as his annual revenues revolve around the sum of $100,000.
Apart from those activities mentioned above, Andy Bassich runs his own dog mushing school as well as survival school, transferring to his students his hard-earned skills and knowledge needed to survive through Alaskan conditions. This enterprise has certainly made an impact on Andy’s total wealth as well.
