How about you?
I was born in SC and stayed there for 2 years.
I moved to Hampton Roads, VA for 14 years.
Moved to Northern VA and stayed here for 5 years.
Moving to Kentucky next year.

Same state for 19 years just two very different parts.

Lived all over California and East Asia, and now in NYC. So there's been a few changes and there'll probably be a few more.

My father was career Air Force, so yeah, we moved...a lot. I went to 10 different schools up through high school. Since I left home, I've ended up moving a lot.

It's had it's pros and cons. I think I got to see and experience a lot of things, places and people that most Americans don't get to. I can travel across the country and have friends nearly every where that I've known somewhere else. I can do the same in some parts of the world.

But, one big drawback is this. I never really had a true hometown. You know, the kind of place I could go back to and walk down the street and know everyone and vice versa. My wife has that kind of background. Grew up in and lived in the same house her entire life until she married me. Her mother is 81 and still in the same house...same phone number for around 60 years. My wife is related to seemingly everyone, and knows everyone and vice versa. I can't visit many of the places I grew up in as they are either in restricted areas or don't exist any more (bases closed, torn down, etc.)

So, moving a lot over my life has been kind of a 2-edged sword--good and bad. Experiences had, places seen, and people known I wouldn't trade anything for. But, a rather nebulous untethered feeling along with it...and a lifetime (so far) of "itchy feet"...the desire to move and not stay in any one place too long.
