Oh darling, let's be adventurers.

We're Jay and Ashley Longmire. Our home base is the beautiful state of Mississippi. Between us, we claim 8 children and 3 grandchildren. Four of those children are still under our roof, ranging from age 5 to 15.

Early in our relationship, one of the things that drew us together was a love of travel and exploration. In June 2017, we purchased a 2016 Jayco Jayflight travel trailer to expand our travel dreams.

We started Road Bloggers to document the lessons we learn and the people we meet while on the road. Between traveling together, working together at Jay's company, and raising a large and crazy blended family together, we stay busy...together!

Hitching Up The Trailer By Myself: Beginner Tips

This past weekend, I went camping without Jay for the first time since we bought the camper. I’ve driven it plenty, but this was the first time for me to really take her out without solid backup. The kids and I loaded up and headed down to Paul B Johnson State Park, just outside of…

3 Lessons From Our First Long Trip in The Travel Trailer

We decided to visit Jay’s business partner Chris to “break in” our new purchase. She’d been down to Gloster, Mississippi, but it was time to branch out a little further. This past Friday, we packed light and headed up to Mountain Home, Arkansas. There was more of an adjustment than I expected, especially when it…

Day One: Emotions

I wasn’t sure how to feel as we drove our new camper off the lot. This had been a dream for so long, and I’d been researching and anticipating this for weeks. Driving home with her, I felt…exhausted. We drove straight to my Jay’s parents’ home to park her. They live about 2 hours away,…
