Couple ditch dream home to buy a trailer and travel America with their kids for three years

(Picture: Jonathan Longnecker / SWNS.com) A family of six who swapped their dream home for a trailer have travelled more than 100,000 miles around the US in three years after becoming ‘bored of suburbia’. Jonathan Longnecker, 38, and his wife Ashley, 35, said their lives once revolved around mortgage payments and maintaining their four bedroom terraced home. The couple, from Knoxville, Tennessee, were inspired to travel with their four children when Jonathan’s friend embarked on a similar adventure with his teenagers. Jonathan, a web designer, knew he could work on the road and Ashley was already homeschooling the couple’s children, Adali, 12, Jett, 11, Jax, nine, and Ada, seven. Looking for a change, they sold their house in April 2015, paid off their mortgage and used the $40,000 (£31,000) profit to purchase an RV.

So just who is The Sacred Riana – and is she really as scary as she looks? Here’s what you need to know: Who is The Sacred Riana and where is she from?
