How many places have you lived?

I'm thinking about distinctly different places, not moving down the street. I've lived in Maryland, South Florida, Central Florida (several cities within), and now... Okie Ville. I don't remember living in Texas, but I was born there.

@silvereyes -- The list is way too long. Just some highlights here, assuming you mean longer than two months where one had time to unpack:

Salem and Portland, OR

Seattle and Kent, WA

Anchorage, Eagle River, Tok Junction, Fairbanks, and Jack Wade, AK

San Francisco, North Hollywood, Carlsbad, Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos, Victorville, Landers, and San Diego, CA

Hobbs, NM

Houston, Clearwater, League City, La Marque, and Galveston, TX

Miami, Miami Beach, Hollywood Hills, Coral Gables, and Fort Lauderdale, FL

Greenwich Village, NY

Hartford, CT

Madison, WI

@AMGT -- For just a bit over 28 years I was a Naval Architect and frequently worked as an on site troubleshooter at shipyards and on ships at sea. I was responsible for ship sciences in several places too. I was also called on for large yacht jobs from time to time. Shoreside work was on special contracts -- generic name, job shopping around the country. LOL ... my two months or less list is a lot bigger.

No favorites. Everywhere is different. The thing I like most is learning about the people wherever I go. I never live in the gringo enclaves, but always get some place out among the people. Occasionally I've had the opportunity to stay with a local family as a room and board thing. Lots of fun and big time educational.

In 2009 I lived in Apple Valley and worked out of Hesperia.

@Paul628 -- Know them both well. I forgot to put in Big Bear, bah. I ran the math lab at Victor Valley College for a couple of years.

@evidentialist I went tubing at Big Bear Lake once, very cool.

@silvereyes -- As I said in the comment, I don't have any favorites. They all have their positives and negatives, culture, language, history, and so forth. They were all fascinating. I'm into people and people watching.

Wow! Somebody who has moved more than I! πŸ™‚ Victorville threw me off. How did you end up in Victorville - Never mind -- just saw the rest of the comments.

@BlueWave -- And the list is truncated to only longer stays. You should see the short term list. 35 countries and all 50 states -- and now that I'm old and sick and tired and weak, if I were offered the opportunity to go somewhere new --- I wouldn't hesitate. It might kill me, but I'd go.

@BlueWave -- I'd very much like to go to Mars.

Just 1, Close enough to get to cities and close enough to get to the lake and relax.

Your whole life, Firelander?

Yes. Stayed close for school. And loved being by the lake. Definitely have traveled domestically, but have always landed at home. It’s an adventure still.
