Meet the Longnecker family. They’ve been traveling across the states for the past nine months, living in an RV. When Jonathan and Ashley Longnecker decided that they wanted their kids to learn from the world around them and not just through a textbook, they packed up their family and hit the road. With four kids in tow–Adali,4, Jett,8, Jax,6 and Ada,4–they’ve been making memories and growing closer as a family while discovering places all over the U.S.
“We wanted to be a closer family,” says Jonathan. “Spending all our time and money taking care of our big house and getting stuck in routines wasn’t getting us there. A family we knew started traveling full-time about 5 years ago, and we were always fascinated by it. “You can do that!?!” I remember asking Ashley. Yes, you can! It’s certainly not an easy transition, but we’re so glad we stuck with it.”
