I was born in TX (while my father was in school there). Raised in West Michigan from age 5 - 27, then moved to the South East corner of the state for a teaching job. However, in August my wife and I will be relocating to Chicago due to Michigan's unfortunate (and dire) economic condition.

Deep inside of this conservative old guy, the liberal part of me secretly wishes I'd been raised in NH or "That State to Your Left"...

Burlington is not totally my cup of tea as much as some of the other places...my parents are living here though...I really like where I was at on the border of Essex and Morris County for a bit. When I am ready to get my own place I am considering Parsiappany.

Default Born and raised

I was born on the prarie of South Dakota. Found hills in Western South Dakota and really loved them. Then realized there were bigger hills in Wyoming, so now I'm there.

Yes. Born and raised in CA and have lived here my whole life with the exception of my 9 month stint in "Hell". I'm back in CA now and have no plans to ever leave.
