  • How Far From Your Hometown Did You Move?

    Or are you still living in the town you grew up in?

    Can you go home again?

    1500 miles or so.

    I moved during my senior year in high school from PA to FL. It took me 16 years before I went back to visit. Not that I have anthing against it, just never looked back.

          I live about 25 miles from my hometown.

          When i lived at the shore during summers, i was about 80 miles away i guess. Never have lived further away than that. I have travelled most the the east, and as far west as Texas.

                I went to University for about a month after graduating from High School, and that was only about a 3/4 hour from my parents' home. When I got accepted into the RCMP, I moved about 1200 miles from my parents' home, and now this is home.

                At some point a person has to make their stand, but after my career taking me here, then meeting and marrying my wife (she wanted a REAL cowboy, not one of the Queen's, but that's another story!), then having a bunch of kids, the thing that REALLY plants you somewhere is when the banks allow you to pay through the nose on mortgages on 3 different homes! Once they have you by the wallet, your heart and mind will follow!

                    I live in a small town outside Cincinnati. I originally gre up here until I was 7 or so and then moved about 15 miles away. When I moved out of my parents home at 19, I moved back to the small town i was originally from. So, a total distance of 15 miles, lol

                      This is interesting! We either stayed generally in the same area, or went far, far away, never to return!

                      I'm in the second category-2763 miles.

                        I now live about 2hrs from where I was born and spent first 12yrs of my life. However, there were stops off between then and now of 980 miles from where I was born and 1200 miles from where I was born. Almost never go back to my "home town" (though I don't call it that, cuz I've spent so much time elsewhwere) about every month or every other month and then only cuz I have family very near there.
                        Nobody ever wants to have to fight, but its a darn good idea for someone to know how.

                          I live about 150 miles from the area where I grew up. I could go back, but what the hell for? I make better money and have better opportunity where I am now.

                            3,000 miles...born in Williamsport, PA and lived there until I was 12, then moved to Cali. I've been here since '79. I still like to visit PA, especially in the summer (everything's green and thunderstorms are cool), but I HATE snow! As a matter of fact, anything below 65 degrees is too chilly.

                              Grew up in Colorado. Job took me to Phoenix, then back to Colorado, then out to the left coast. Got into LE (for the second time) in Kaliphornia and stayed through retirement.

                              Then moved to Dixie (Southern Utah) for a few years, then to the Grand Canyon, then back to Colorado for a few months, and now back to the Grand Canyon again.

                              I do PLAN to return to Colorado, a place about 90 miles from where I grew up, when my better half is ready to retire! Probably a couple of years.
