Hi, we’re Tyler & Andrea!
We travel the country full-time in our RV, making documentaries and podcasts about our life. When we decided to uproot and move into an RV, Andrea was inspired by the impact this decision had on our lives, and she created her first documentary, Newly Nomads. A few months into our travels, Tyler wanted a way to forge a deeper connection to the people and the places we traveled, and he created his podcast Strangers Worth Meeting. We were both hooked! We had discovered our passions, and found a way to share our stories and experiences with the world.
We are the ultimate adult beginners. From RVing full-time to cooking to some of our newer interests like bow hunting and jiu-jitsu, nearly everything we do we discovered as adults. Being an adult beginner is surprisingly challenging, and at times we really do feel like we don’t know anything! But if there’s one thing we know in the Hixson household, it’s that we want our lives to be wild, free, and lived intentionally. If something looks difficult or intimidating, it’s probably worth doing. And there’s no better time to start than now.
Join the Wild Hixsons on our full-time RV adventure across the United States in this companion podcast to the travel vlog series. The Wild Hixsons Podcast takes listeners behind the scenes of the journey to discover new places, new ideas, and a new way to live that complement the travel vlog series.

We’ve been traveling for work so much lately, Tucson is the first time in a while that we have felt like we are on vacation! 🌵 🚐 When we first started RVing, it was a few months before we were able to travel just for fun, and Tucson was one of the first places we decided to visit. A good thing, too, because it turned out to be our favorite vacation destination! Even when we have work to do, Tucson still makes it feel like a vacation with our favorite date spots and all of the activities we love like jiu jitsu, archery, and hiking. 🏹 🥋⛰️ To hear more about our time in Arizona, listen to our new episode!

Our Favorite Destination

Getting Our Blue Belts
Getting Our Blue BeltsBelt promotions in jiu jitsu are just weird. For most of us, it’s something we’ve wanted for a long time and never actually feel we’re ready for. Last December, Tyler received his blue belt from Coach Sonny Parlin at Gracie Bradenton where he had...
Andrea’s Musings on Hunting & Jiu Jitsu
Andrea's Musings on Hunting & Jiu JitsuJiu jitsu doesn’t seem much like hunting. It’s usually in a gym with a lot of other people, and a major attraction of the sport is the ability to train in a safe way, with a relative lack of consequences. But I began my jiu...
