I've lived in several places and I'm glad I have. I like the experience of moving to different places.

How about you?

As much as people on here like to believe, I have actually lived in a few different places. I lived in upstate NY for 2 years at college, southern Maine for 2 years at college, 3 different neighborhoods in NYC, and 2 different towns on Long Island

Nope. I now live in the town I was born in, but have lived all over the place in the years between then and now. All over the State of Michigan, a couple places in the South, a few places in the Northeast, and spent time on the West Coast as well.

Nope, and glad I haven't.

I didn't leave my "comfort zone" (Southern California, Corona/Riverside) until age 20, when I moved to a little-known CA desert town (Ridgecrest).

Then it was off to Colorado (metro Denver) at age 23, stayed for two years then it was off to Spokane, WA for what turned out to be four months.

Now I'm back in Denver because the Spokane job didn't pan out as planned.

Next move won't be for awhile, but it's in the works.....methinks I know now where I want to permanently plant my butt.

I couldn't imagine how much I'd be lacking in experience if I had never left "home", and nor do I plan on ever "going home again".

I have basically lived in only two areas.
Cleveland-Akron area for my first 25 years and Detroit-Lansing-Ann Arbor area the past 21 years. In each of these I have lived in several locations.
I wish I had greater variety in my places lived. I still hope to someday. But as we age we tend to stay place more.

I was born in Florida, lived there til I was 4 or 5 and have been in Jefferson County KY ever since. If I ever move out of Kentucky, it will probably be farther south.
