Sometimes it’s nice to have your own bathroom…
AND your own shower, fridge, margarita mixer, air conditioner, and bed. We travel full-time in or 2002 American Eagle motorhome. Who says you have to be rich?
We’re Jesse, Jenny, and Tucker, an adventurous family that made some BIG changes. By living intentionally and setting goals, we’ve broken free and travel full-time as a family.
Growing up near Cocoa Beach, FL Jesse’s love for the ocean was unstoppable. At least until he joined the military and was assigned to Tinker Air Force Base Oklahoma, the most landlocked state in the US. Since then he’s been chasing tropical beaches and perfect waves around the world.
From surf travel blossomed a new passion, cinematography. Outside Is Calling, the decision to travel full-time as a family, all aspects of this lifestyle the Ingram family has chosen is for one reason. To chase dreams, and follow passions; waves & pixels. “While my background is in military operations and electricity, my heart was somewhere else. We chose as a family to do what made us happy, even if that meant making less money. Society pressures us to trade freedom for security, but at what cost? My goal is to lead a fulfilling life, cherish my family, and inspire others to follow their own dreams.”
Having completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Cinematography from Full Sail University, Jesse has more plans on the horizon. Jesse’s first feature film was RV Nomads the Movie, a documentary about the full-time RV movement. “So many doors open, but they require us to take that first step. I’m super-excited to see what other opportunities result from our bold choice to redefine how we live as a family.“
Happy when the sun is shining, she loves warm beaches, reading, and surfing beach break.
I belong on the beach. Last summer in Texas, while Jesse was helping production for RV Nomads, I was a fish out of water. That’s when I truly realized my need for the water, so strange. I’d lived nearby one body of water or another my whole life and never realized how much it was a part of me. When we plan our travel routes, you can bet there’s an ocean, river, or creek with a rope swing nearby!
My favorite RV spot so far is Wellington, TX. One of my most memorable experiences from traveling as a family is having our house, parked next to Scorpion Bay Mexico, where perfect waves rolled past one by one. It’s incredible to expose our son to so many cool things.
A tiny casanova and he knows it. Grom in the making. Loves snacks and is constantly on the move.
Tucker is what keeps us going, and on our tip toes every waking moment. We call him our little rascal; a very fitting name indeed. And while he can be such a pain in the neck, we wouldn’t trade a single minute of it. Seeing his eyes widen as he finds a cool new animal in the tide pools, or his ear-to-ear grin, deep in the jungle as he realizes the rope bridge swings wider the harder he steps, those are the things that keep us going. Life doesn’t have to be complicated, it’s an adventure. An adventure in which we need to remember to stop and have fun, lots of fun! Our little rascal does a good job at reminding us these simple yet important life lessons.
