    I've got East Coast, every state (sans MD) from GA to PA. I've got TX, UT, OH. I've got Oz and if you count summers with dear old dad, I've got CO, CA, and NM.

    Longest in one physical location was 5 years. And yes, if you're wondering, I have showered in a gas station/truck stop pay-by-the-minute shower.
    Hawaii, Texas, Virginia, Kansas, (West) Germany, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Arizona, North Carolina, California, Georgia, Washington, Tennessee, Ohio. I have a few repeaters(NC x3, MA x2, TX x2) Longest in one location is 7+ years here in San Antonio.

    That's an impressive list. Military parents and career? Not used to someone calling out (West) Germany if not for stationed reasons...

    NJ, PA, KS, GA, Tokyo, Seoul, TX, NC (if you count years at school), and back to KS.

    GA - shortest - less than 1 year
    KS - 2nd time - longest but I'm not saying how long

    Yes, Army brat and former officer myself.

    FWIW, I stayed in Brazil for 5 months working for a company there. Not sure if that counts.

    I keep on getting calls to go to Monterrey. Real estate is expensive there.

    Thank goodness I grew up in Michigan where there still are some impressive marching bands. And, I'm your gal with the twirl requirements!

    I was laughing on my daily trek to the mailbox while thinking about veering off to the barn to look for the old baton. Ah geez, this confinement is beginning to cause day dreams/ hallucinations.

    Sigh, the benefit of an Android tablet is the lower cost. The downside are dumb pop up ads.

    The next question that wasn't asked is where would you like to move to?

    It's all fun and games until someone paints their rear diff cover the wrong color.

    Another good list. I am sadly under-traveled in eastern Asia.

    I was just a kid in Asia. Appreciated Korea more as I was in my teens and traveled around the country more. I still think of Seoul as home.

    Is it your sole source of comfort when you think "there is no place like home"?
